Sara Webb: Where do you go for inspiration? I find myself wandering around the internet at times, looking at images. I somehow found myself looking at a variety of pictures of graphs (don’t ask me how I got there because I really don’t know!). I liked the idea of maybe trimming my pictures and graduate them in size.




I used the Juniper Berry collection for today’s page. The pinks and black in the patterned paper matched my pictures perfectly. The collection works well for holiday pages, but as you can see, winter themed, or potentially girl themed pages too.

As I started to design my page, I found that I preferred to have the graph flipped. And so I did. The design of the page was based around the set up of the pictures.

I added the chipboard alpha from the Aurora collection and paired it with a die cut ‘ready’. The ‘ready’ was a little too plain, so I added the stitching as a finishing touch.


I hope you enjoy playing with the Juniper Berry collection!

Card Corner | Audrey Pettit



AudreyPettit BG BSide HelloFriendCard Audrey Pettit: The B-Side collection is awesome! So bright and cheerful and versatile enough for so many different occasions. Today I’m using B-Side on a pair of friendship cards. Perfect for those times when you just want to send a little hello.


AudreyPettit BG BSide HelloFriendCard2 It really doesn’t get any easier when you have embellishments that do all the work for you, like this sweet floral banner sticker I used for both the sentiment and the main focal point here. I pulled colors from the sticker to build up the rest of the card, creating a pretty framework for the image using die cuts and several layers of papers to help set it off.


AudreyPettit BG BSide HelloFriendCard3 Keep in mind that many of BasicGrey’s embellishments are double-sided, giving you lots of extra design choices. The pretty green print in the center is actually the back of one of the 3×4 journaling cards. The card didn’t really work for my design, but I loved the color and pattern on the back. So don’t forget to check out both sides for all your options.


AudreyPettit BG BSide HiCard My second card is a petite 3.5×5 notecard that features a fun layered focal point tag and a bold, graphic design.


AudreyPettit BG BSide HiCard2 I love layers, and this card has lots of them. Building up the layers is a great way to call attention to a smaller focal point, in this case, a small leaf and flower that were fussy cut from one of the patterned papers. I added color to the cut outs with inks and then added them to a tag, along with a few extra layers of stickers and paper.
