Basic Scrapbook Sketch : 2.4.13

This week’s sketch from BasicGrey sketch artist Jana Eubank and is the perfect starting point for your next multi-photo project.

BG scrapbook designer Shannon Tidwell used this week’s sketch to document these photos of her husband and daughter.  Shannon says, ”I was immediately drawn to the cluster of photos on the sketch, but decided to use that inspiration to cluster a few embellishments.  I used the embellishment cluster to base my title on as well.    I loved the circles borders, and envisioned something with machine stitching. Once I started playing with all the goodies in the True Love Collection I decided to replace the circles with hearts.  Also instead of adding the journaling strips next to the photo I replaced it with a banner. I really got a lot of inspiration from this sketch and was able to come up with a layout all my own!”

Digital designer Kathleen Summers also used this week’s sketch to create a layout along the same color scheme.  Kathleen notes, “I stuck pretty closely to the sketch. It’s a great 3-photo design and I love the balance and the plenty of white space for the eye to rest. It turned out to be the perfect way to document our 18th anniversary!”

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 February 10, 2013 at 11:59p MST.

  1. Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let
    you know a few of the images aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but
    I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in
    two different web browsers and both show the
    same results.

  2. Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download
    it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make
    my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design.
    Many thanks

  3. Hi there, just became aware of your blog through Google, and found that it’s really informative.
    I am going to watch out for brussels. I will appreciate if you
    continue this in future. Many people will be benefited from your writing.

  4. I rarely drop responses, however i did some searching and wound up here Basic Scrapbook Sketch : 2.4.13 | BasicGrey Blog.
    And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.

    Could it be just me or does it give the impression like a few of these comments look like they are left by brain dead individuals?

    :-P And, if you are posting at other online sites, I’d like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
    Would you list of the complete urls of your social sites like your twitter
    feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  5. Hey There. I found your blog using msn. This is a really neatly written article.

    I will make sure to bookmark it and come back to read extra of your useful information.
    Thanks for the post. I’ll certainly comeback.

  6. Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; we have developed some nice procedures and we are looking to swap methods with other folks,
    please shoot me an e-mail if interested.

  7. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I think that you need to publish more about this topic,
    it might not be a taboo matter but typically people do
    not talk about these issues. To the next! All the best!!
