We've got a new feature, called "Spread It Out", that we'll be bringing to you once a month. This feature is all about the two page layouts! While there are plenty of you out there that shy away from two page layouts and like to focus on single pagers, we like to believe that there are also plenty of you out there that embrace the two page layouts and could use a little inspiration featuring Bella collections and products. So that's just what we're aiming to bring you with this new feature!
"BOO-tiful", by Laura Vegas.
For this two page Halloween layout, I dug deep and found these photos of my oldest daughter from Halloween 2004, a full 11 years ago. When working with photos from my film days, it definitely changes the way that I scrap them. I don't have the convenience of digital, where I can edit my photos, print them in smaller sizes, or create photo collages from them. So I trimmed up my 4x6" photos here and there, until I was able to fit them together on the spread to my liking. I used three of Bella's Halloween collections on this layout - Too Cute To Spook, Trick or Treat, and Halloween Magic. I used my Silhouette Cameo to die cut a diamond background from one of the orange patterned papers, and used pieces of that on both pages of the spread. I love using die cut backgrounds, so that it breaks up the "heaviness" that can come from too much patterned paper on a layout.

“Trick or Treat”, by Becki Adams.
Creating across a 24 inch canvas is so much fun! It's even more fun when Halloween themed collections are involved. I mixed 2 older Bella Blvd Halloween collections, Halloween Magic and Trick or Treat. These two collections went together perfectly, you wouldn't even know they were different collections.
