Alexes Brown: Hello there! I’m pretty excited to be here today with you to share yet another great Capture two page spread! I also want to show you guys how easy it is it blend together a few of the most recent BasicGrey collections.
Today I’ll be using Fresh Cut and Mon Ami, two really fun but different lines. Normally when I scrapbook I tend to stick with one collection so when I got this assignment it was a bit of a challenge, but after I got started it was super fun and easy!
Basically I started by picking a color scheme that incorporated the two lines. After a while of thinking, I decided on navy, grey, teal and yellow. I’m really pleased with how it turned out too!
The vellum tape stickers from the Fresh Cut collection is so easy and fun to use! I love the fact that the colors are really vibrant and add that special touch to your page!
These little wood veneer words are seriously the coolest. They give such a fun look while also adding dimension and texture to my page.
Thanks for checking in and hope you all have a fantastic day!
Ann-Marie Espinoza: The Herbs & Honey collection is one of those lines that I know I will turn to over and over again for years to come; mustard, pink, red…what’s not to love? For this 8.5 x 11″ layout, I used a few of my favorite papers from the Herbs and Honey collection pack, in addition to the feather cut file from the Silhouette store and the title cut file that I designed (p.s. free download at the bottom of the post!).
I love a good embellishment cluster, especially when the products I get to use are as fun and colorful as the ones in the Herbs & Honey collection! For this corner of the layout, I used die cuts and transparencies, a wood bottlecap, mixed brads, mustard Candy Buttons, and paper feathers cut from various sheets in the 6 x 6″ pad.
To create the tone-on-tone look of the title, I ran a 6 x 6 ” sheet of the Corn paper through my Cameo die cutting machine and adhered it to my layout using a tape runner for the first part of the title and dimensional adhesive to the second part. I love the subtle yet powerful element it brings to the page!
