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!

Becky Williams: The Attach Me stickers are a great addition to the Capture collection and a genius way to add ephemera and other things to mini albums. They were also a great way to bring additional bold color to my layout.

The Attach Me stickers come in a variety of colors and can be used as a design element to draw the eye to your photos by using them as tabs as I have here. I also intermixed the “extra” dots with the spray mist on my layout.

I used two of the Attach Me stickers on the photo on the left and when turned to the right it reveals hidden journaling.

I have combined a variety of the embellishments included in the Capture collection including cardstock elements, a wooden sentiment, tile alphas, the cool new printed tape and chipboard shapes.

Kelly Rasmussen: Hi, it’s Kelly here and today I’ve created two cards pairing Kelly Purkey’s Mon Ami collection with some stamps from both Capture and Herbs & Honey.

On the first card I created a heart window from the gorgeous 12 x 12″ paper called Rue. I backed the heart with a piece of acetate and then adhered the alphabet stickers on top. Once the panel is “popped up” it gives lots of great dimension and the sentiment looks like it’s floating. I also used a stamp from the Capture clear stamp set, The Details, to create the fun triangle border on the sides.

For the next card, I chose to stick with the same color combo and highlight some of the Element Stickers from Mon Ami. I stamped a journaling card from The Details clear stamp set along with some of the banners and arrows from the Moments to Remember set. And then I sewed two stickers on the journaling card which is a great way to add some texture and interest to your cards. I also stamped the Herbs & Honey Star Background onto the yellow paper to create a subtle tone on tone background.

 

Thanks for joining me today!
