Extra Inspiration Sketch

Today we’re giving you a bit of extra inspiration for the weekend in the form of this sketch from BG sketch artist Susan Stringfellow.


I wanted to include more than one photo on my page, so I printed four smaller (3″ x 2″) to take the space of the 4 x 6. Instead of circles and flowers, I opted to reinforce my page theme by using hearts.


The large heart behind my title filled some of the space where the sketch designated the journaling to go, so I moved mine to the lower left corner.  Adding a small die cut at the start of the text keeps it from getting lost among the larger page elements.





We’re continuing to show our love to our fans this month with another amazing giveaway this weekend!  Click here for your chance to win a shopping spree to basicgrey.com AND sizzix.com as well as over $100 of our design team’s favorite products!
