Freebie Friday with Lisa


Lisa Dickinson: I love mixing old and new collections on one layout and it’s always a breeze with BasicGrey! For this summertime page, I started with the new Adrift collection. The 6×6 paper pad has deep blues, aquas and oranges that I knew would work perfectly with my watermark photos. I cut several of them into small squares similar to the size of my photos.


Then I pulled out the same paper pad from the older Grand Bazaar line and incorporated some yellow papers, as well as additional aqua patterns. Finally, I used a light blue paper from the Evergreen line to tie the whole color palette together.


Once the patchwork backdrop was adhered, I die cut a big bold title from navy card stock that works well with the equally vibrant color scheme. Then I scattered some chipboard, stickers, transparencies, and other embellishments from Adrift and Grand Bazaar in three locations on the page, which frame my photos.


Because I didn’t have quite enough room to add in all the journaling I wanted to include, I ended up typing it on a large journaling sticker from Adrift and adhering it to the back side of my page.

Arielle Gordon:  “Hybrid” scrapping seems to encompass so many different variations of products and printed components. After noticing how perfect the printed digital products match up with the actual retail Basic Grey products, I thought it might be fun to experiment in a different direction. I used the gorgeous Prism Collection in digital form from Snap Click Supply Company. I set up my entire 8×10 layout in Photoshop, and sent it off to my local photo printer. When I got the print back, I used real embellishments from the Prism line to add a little “scrappy” flair!




I used some of the Prism Collection’s retail papers as well  – they mixed in perfectly!




Using Therm-o-web dimensional adhesives, I also added transparencies from the collection in different heights, as well as some chipboard.
