Basic Scrapbook Sketch : 2.6.12

I Was Thinking Mum | Georgia Keays

SUPPLIES: [KISSING BOOTH]  KIS-3553 Dozen Roses, KIS-3561 Oh Darling, KIS-3557 Kiss, KIS-3570 Element Stickers, KIS-3571 Alphabet Stickers, KIS-3576 Die-cut Paper and Canvas Flowers, KIS-3577 Glitter Chipboard Shapes and Alphas [HELLO LUSCIOUS] HLO-3263 Bloomers.

Another Monday, means another sketch!  This week’s sketch is based on this layout from BasicGrey design team member Georgia Keays using our recently released Kissing Booth collection.

Georgia notes, “The inspiration for this layout came from my photo.  To others it probably doesn’t appear to be the nicest picture of Lucy but it captures the particular look she gets when she’s deep in thought perfectly. The background of my photo is quite neutral which meant I could use a very busy paper without my photo being swamped.  I absolutely love bold florals so I was drawn to the Dozen Roses paper immediately and added a couple of plain colour papers, again not to clash with the print. In the same way, I chose to use the large flower from the elements sticker sheet as the focus of my embellishment cluster and add just a few other little touches.”

This week’s sketch features two photos with plenty of space dedicated to journaling and embellishments.  Want to make our sketch your own?  Please do!  Feel free to rotate it, flip it, use it for a card or another project – whatever you wish!

  1. Beautiful layout and yes, I can see the gears in your
    daughter’s brain working. She does have that look
    of deep thought. Guess it is a thing mother’s see.
    Beautiful layout and beautiful daughter.

  2. I’ve just linked up my blog post for my layout using this sketch – I really enjoyed it and I particularly liked the different patterned paper line on the left – really cool detail! Thanks for the inspiration! :D
