"Love of Orange" Scrapbook Page

Today, I have a scrapbook page to share that I created for Spellbinders.  It features photos of my DH and two of his tractors.   He has several vintage Allis-Chalmers tractors.  These are two of his favorites!

The Spellbinders shapes probably aren't very obvious on this layout.  I've kept it very linear and a bit minimalist. It fits DH's character!

The zig-zag edge mats on the small photos were cut with Square Swatches.  I sanded the edges to bring out the white paper edge.  It really makes the edges pop!  The Square Swatches die templates aren't big enough to cut a mat for the large photo.  Instead, I used the edge of the largest Square Swatches along the outside to cut the zig-zags on it.  It took 8 cuts to get all the corners.  Worth it though!  Between the bigger zig-zags at the top and bottom of the mat, I used the next smaller Square Swatches die template.  The size fit the space better without over cutting the bigger zig-zags.
Each photo has an orange mat, zig-zag mat, black mat and a cream mat. 

The border at the top and the wider border at the bottom with the word "ORANGE" has edges cut with Classic Bracket from Classic Edges Two.  I used an Edgeabilities from Classic Decorative Inserts One to cut the decorative pattern along the edges and center.  There's a strip of orange paper behind the center strip.  The edge patterns show black through the pattern. 

I cut 2 sets of letters for "ORANGE" and layered them: one orange and one cream.  They were cut with Spellbinders Presto Punch and punch templates.

I used my computer and printer for the journaling and the title.  It's printed on cream card stock.

DH loved this!!

This is such a cool layout! We collect Minneapolis-molines but we have a AC 45 too. Glad to come across so many tractor scrapbook pages for inspiration
