Basic Scrapbook Sketch : 9.24.12

Those of you who are fans of two page layouts, this sketch was created with you in mind!  This sketch from BasicGrey sketch artist Susan Stringfellow features four horizontal standard sized photos, however we ask that you create whatever you’re inspired to do!

One | Kim Jeffress

BasicGrey scrapbook designer Kim Jeffress used just a portion of this sketch as inspiration for her layout.  Kim notes, “When I  saw the two pages on the double sketch this month I new immediately that I wanted to create a single page using the right handside of the sketch. I loved the strips and the placement of the heading. I decided to use two smaller portrait style photos instead of the landscape photo. When I printed out the photos of my youngest son I thought the muted tones of the Paper Cottage collection suited the photos perfectly! You will notice I added a few pops of yellow scattered around my page , just to add a bit of brightness to it!  I look forward to seeing your version of the sketch in out flicker group soon.”

Class of 2013 | Mary Rogers 

BasicGrey digital designer Mary Rogers also took a turn with this week’s sketch.  Mary comments, “What a challenge this was for me.  I do not usually scrap double page layouts, but I loved the sketch and how this turned out.  I sized my favorite photo 8×6 to replace the two 4×6 photos called for in the sketch.  I kept the design very close to the sketch and added minimal elements.   I wanted to keep the layout masculine for my son, so I used the Vagabond Collection.  I created the journaling lines using a stitching element, erasing the portion that I didn’t want to include. The grungy font used for the title work was given an outline using the sticker technique.”

Now it’s your turn! We’d love to see what you create from this week’s sketch. Leave a comment below with a link to your project and we’ll select one comment at random to receive a $10 credit to shop at Comment must be posted by September 30, 2012 at 11:59p MST.
