Basic Scrapbook Sketch : 11.28.11

A Scrapper’s Dream | Georgia Keays

SUPPLIES : [PICADILLY] PIC-3520 Prairie Grass, PIC-3523 Breadbox, PIC-3527 Refrigerator Magnet, PIC-3528 Farm Fresh Eggs, PIC-3532 Elements Stickers [LITTLE BLACK DRESS] LBD-3506 Lace Stickers [NOTIONS] FAB-8041 Burst Flowers Linen [URBAN PRAIRIE] URP-1333 Olio Rub-on Book [OPALINE] OPA-1760 Opaline (Grass/Ivy).

Here it is, our last sketch for the month of November – it’s crazy how fast this year is flying by!  This week’s sketch is based on this two page scrapbook layout created by BasicGrey design team member Georgia Keays.  Lots of layering, lots of photos and lots of room for embellishments.

Georgia says, “I wanted to tell the story of how Eliza just loves being in front of the camera and a two page layout was perfect as it meant I could use a lot of photos. My pictures are all close ups with only a few colours so I could use really loud and busy patterned papers, just perfect for Eliza’s cheek personality . I didn’t want to swamp the layout with a lot of big embellishments so I chose smaller stickers and broke apart the burst flower, using a few of the petals around the page.”

We know many of you love two page layouts so this sketch is perfect for you!  For those of you who tend to scrapbook topics on a single page, feel free to use only one half of the sketch for your project this week.

BasicGrey digital design team member Kathleen Summers also created a layout using this week’s sketch as inspiration.  That adorable subject of Katheen’s layout?  He arrived just 18 days ago!  We’re definitely impressed that not only was she able to find a moment to scrapbook already, but her layout is simply stunning.  Congrats again, Kathleen!
Kathleen notes, “I liked the multi-photo aspect of the layout and loved the effect of the layered patterned papers. I kept a similar design reducing it to four photos and one page.”
