We are thrilled to share the beautiful, eclectic scrapbooking style of Stephanie Buice, our guest designer for August! Stephanie chose BasicGrey’s Tea Garden and when you see her pages, you’ll see how she took this romantic, nostalgic collection and gave it a contemporary fresh look on her pages. We love what she created and know that you will, too!
Stephanie lives in a small town in central Alabama with her husband and three-year-old son, Brady. She’s a stay at home momma who loves God, her family and papercrafting. Stephanie began scrapbooking in 2001 and her first project was to scrap her senior year of high school. She tells us that she is a “middle-of-the-day” scrapper because that’s when Brady naps, and considers that creative break her most relaxing time of the day. Stephanie is a member of several manufacturer design teams and says, “I love the friendships I have made along the way in this amazing industry.”
We are glad she is a new friend to BasicGrey and invite you to take a look at the pages she created for this guest spot!
Pulling from the pale blues and soft yellows in the Tea Garden collection, Stephanie created this heartwarming page. We love the oversized title and sparkling sequins!
Inspired by a crazy quilt, Stephanie patched several paper pieces together at different angles, then sewed in the “gutters” between each piece. What a fantastic look!
Stephanie’s asymmetrical style is so eye-catching! If you create a page like this one, it will give you the opportunity to use up scraps of your favorite papers.
