National Scrapbooking Day 2012 : Shape Challenge

Happy Day | Jessy Christopher

CHALLENGE : Create a layout that includes a shape other than a square or rectangle.

Looking to create something trendy but yet a bit away from the norm for National Scrapbooking Day?  This challenge is for you!

BasicGrey design team member Jessy Christopher created the fantastic layout above.  She explains, ”Shapes are such a trend these days. This time, I wanted to focus on triangles. I used the Silhouette Cameo to cut out the triangles and layered it with another patterned paper at the back. The cut-out triangles I decided to use them as well to create dimension. To further enhance the focus on the triangles, I drew lines and also sew the borders of the triangles. The Konnichiwa collection has bold colors and it’s perfect to use on clean & simple layouts.”

We can’t wait to see what you create for this challenge! Leave a comment below with a link to your project and we’ll select one commenter at random to receive a $25 gift certificate to shop at basicgrey.comComment must be posted by May 11, 2012 at 11:59p MST.

If you upload your layout to your blog or online gallery, be sure to also upload it to our new BasicGrey flickr page so that other BG fans can find your work easily.

Such a cute layout, Jessy! I used all kinds of non-rectangle/square shapes, primarily focusing on my chevron block.

  1. I do accept as true with all of the ideas you’ve introduced on your post.
    They are very convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts
    are too short for starters. May you please lengthen them a bit from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.

  2. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could
    do with a few pics to drive the message home
    a bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog. A great read.
    I will certainly be back.

    Keep up the terrific works guys I’ve added you guys to my personal blogroll.

  4. Admiring the time and energy you put into your website and detailed information you provide.
    It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same
    outdated rehashed information. Excellent read! I’ve
    saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.
