Basic Scrapbook Sketch : 9.6.11

We’re thrilled that you’re excited by the weekly sketch series that we’ve implemented!  I don’t know about you but a sketch makes things seem so much more doable.  Especially when you’re short on time!  All of the guesswork has been taken out of the equation.  All I have to do is sit down with my favorite BG product and a few photos and get to work!

This week’s sketch is based on this NEW layout by BasicGrey fan favorite, Kelly Goree :

Supplies : [LITTLE BLACK DRESS] LBD-3477 Classy Chic, LBD-3479 La Rouge, LBD-3484 The New Black, LBD-3485 Haute Couture, LBD-3491 CorsetLBD-3503 Designer Chipboard Series.

A single page layout showcasing three photos with plenty of opportunity for you to embellish as you please.  I love how Kelly was able to include so many different embellishments but yet it doesn’t distract your eye away from her sweet photos.

So here’s the sketch you’ll be working from this week if you choose to participate.  And why wouldn’t you?  Feel free to rotate it, flip it or anything else you please.  This sketch is simply a jumping off point for your layout.  Don’t feel that it has to be an exact copy unless you really want it to be!

Supplies : [PICADILLY] PIC-3528 Farm Fresh Eggs, [INDIE BLOOM] INB-3403 Rosario, INB-3413 Tortilla, INB-3419 Element Stickers, INB-3425 Fabric Stickers, INB-3433 Canvas & Cardstock BordersINB-3420 Alpha Stickers, [OUT OF PRINT] OUT-3352 Petals, [OXFORD] MET-3383 Glazed Brads.

I chose to use this week’s sketch to showcase photos of my youngest daughter with her first birthday cupcake.  The strip of photos shown on the sketchwas perfect for this series of shots.  I stayed quite true to the sketch except for the placement of my title and journaling which I juggled to better fit my layout.

So… Are you ready to scrapbook? We’d love to see what you create from this week’s sketch. Leave a comment below with a link to your layout and we’ll select one commenter at random to receive a collection pack of your choice. Comment must be posted by September 11, 2011 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.

Happy Labor Day to our friends in the US!

  1. Love the look of this sketch. Kelly’s layout is gorgeous. Today is my birthday and my wish was to get some scrapping time in. Looks like I may need to print this out and give it a try.

  2. I enjoyed playing along with this week’s sketch challenge– a really versatile sketch! I decided to replace the three horizontal photos with one long panoramic style photo. And, because the sketch left lots of room for embellishments, I got to try my hand at making some pinwheel flowers too. Such fun! Thanks, BasicGrey!

    I uploaded my layout called “Love you” to the BasicGrey Flickr gallery. Here’s the link to it:
