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.
