Weekly Challenge : Create A Multi-Photo Layout

Big Boy Undies | Kim Jeffress

THIS WEEK’S CHALLENGE : Create a multi-photo layout.

This week, I’ve asked BasicGrey design team member Kim Jeffress to participate in our challenge.  Feel free to interpret this week’s challenge however you’d like!

Kim explains, “In my scrapping I like to record the big and little things in our lives. Recently my youngest had graduated from nappies to wearing undies. It took a while so I wanted to celebrate the occasion with a layout. I snapped lots of photos one day and I wanted to use these on my layout. Here on my layout I have used 4 small photos and the New fun PB&J collection as I thought they suited the bright happy photos of my son perfectly.I also mixed in a bit of  the What’s Up collection too.  As I mentioned in an earlier post my new go to technique is using pages from the 6 x 6 pad for fast and eye catching designs on my pages.  I have used one whole and another simply cut in half from the 6 x 6 pad to create the basic design for my layout. It was then easy to layer and cluster embellishments over the top of these to complete my layout.”

We can’t wait to see what you create for this week’s challenge! Leave a comment below with a link to your project and we’ll select one commenter at random to receive a collection pack of your choice. Comment must be posted by May 24, 2012 at 11:59p MST.

This week, I’ve asked our guest designer for April, Susan Weinroth to participate in our challenge.  Feel free to interpret this week’s challenge however you’d like!

Susan notes, “I loved the burst background on this paper, and decided to center my photo over the interior of the burst design.  I accented the “rays” with multi-colored machine stitching and rhinestone gems.”

Here’s my layout. It’s about how much my kids love it when they get time with their 93 year old great-grandmother. :) http://www.flickr.com/photos/43445861@N08/7108309801/in/pool-officialbasicgrey

Weekly Challenge : Create A Project With Scallops

Concentrated Artist | Tiffany Tillman

THIS WEEK’S CHALLENGE : Create A Project With Scallops.

This week, I’ve asked our BasicGrey design team member Tiffany Tillman to participate in our challenge.  Feel free to interpret this week’s challenge however you’d like!

Tiffany notes, ”I’m in love with scallops shapes in small, medium or large sizes. They could be Inverted, overlapped, and anything in between. Scallop strips help me use my paper scraps or add a touch of color and contrast to my page. And all that’s required is some scallop-edged scissors, or a circle punch or (for us digital gals) a hard-round brush tip found in the Brush tool. What could be easier?”

Thank You For Coming To My Party | Danielle Flanders

SUPPLIES : [PLUMERIA] Grandma Jane paperElement StickersPlumeria Alphabet StickersCurio Painted Brads, [OTHER] vellum, hole punchers, sewing machine, white cardstock, seam binding.

THIS WEEK’S CHALLENGE : Incorporate confetti into your design. 

This week, I’ve asked our March BasicGrey guest design team member Danielle Flanders to participate in our challenge.

Danielle says, ”What conveys “party” more than confetti? I took out some BasicGrey brads and my hole punchers and went to town creating a confetti feel on a little pocket card! To make the pocket, I folded a piece of vellum up and stitched the sides with a zigzag stitch with my sewing machine.Vellum is very easy to stitch. I used different sized hole punchers to create a fun confetti border on the pocket. I made a white cardstock tag to tuck inside that says, “Thank you for coming to my party!” I added some of the Plumeria papers and stickers…love the purples and oranges. I found the colors bright and happy, great for a birthday!”
