For those of you who celebrate today, Happy Halloween!  And for those of you that love creating two page layouts, we have a reason for you to celebrate too!  This week’s sketch is based on this layout from BasicGrey design team member Leanne Pearce.

Leanne says, “I’ve used a mixture of Indie Bloom and Out of Print for this two page layout.  I used the reverse side of the Indie Bloom papers as I love solid colours.  Plus it really made the banner pop on the pages more.  And of course, I’m never one to be shy about using embellishments!  I love to layer and cluster them.  I wanted this two pager to be just like my little girl’s personality which is carefree and playful with a touch of whimsy.”

Although this week’s sketch is for a two page layout, don’t feel that you have to create one if that’s not your style!  Why not simply choose a single page of the sketch to inspire you?  Simply grab your photos and get started!

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 commenter at random to receive a collection pack of your choice. Comment must be posted by November 6, 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.



CONGRATULATIONS to our winner selected at random from the comments we received by the noted deadline :

  1. Thanks for the two page spread (can never get enough of them). I’m not a fan of cutting pictures over the seam but this layout can easily be modified to avoid that. :-)

  2. I had so much fun creating this 2 pager…. can’t wait to see what you all do with the sketch!

  3. This is a rocking 2 pager! I love everything about it, but especially the fun banners all along the top with holes punched out and goodies filled. Love that we get to have some sketches off of this, thanks so much for the inspiration Miss Wally!

    • Crystal it’s an awesome take on the sketch …well done and i LOVE that curly paper!!!

    • Hi Mieko… I love your take on the sketch and your double page rocks well done thanks!

  4. I had hoped to create a layout to go along with this challenge, but just ran out of time this week… but wanted to drop a note to let you know that I love your work, Leann! Fantastic 2-pager with lots of texture and color. Beautiful!

    • Well Michelle you can always save the sketch for a rainy day. thanks for the lovely comment about my work too!

  5. Sooooo Cute!!! Thanks for a two page layout idea! I usually always do two pages and try to incorporate ideas I get from one page. Love the colors and funness of these pages!
