Blueprint | Kim Price | Mon Ami





Kim Price: I’ve drawn inspiration from a couple of collage art pieces using torn paper to create layers, such as I have recreated in my layout.

Hey Beautiful Girl! - Blog


I love tearing my patterned papers and layering them together for some fun texture and pattern. My layout today draws inspiration from some wonderful art collage pieces which use torn papers to create an interesting aesthetic. This is one of my favorite scrapbooking “go-to” techniques right now.


Hey Beautiful Girl! - Detail 01


Detail #01 – I’ve used the Mon Ami Alphabet Stickers Sheet to create my title, “Hey Beautiful Girl!”, mixing the fonts up and adding letter detail with an archival quality permanent marker. The die-cut “Hey!” arrow sentiment comes from the Capture Occasions Waterfall Pack, which coordinates beautifully with Mon Ami.


Hey Beautiful Girl! - Detail 02


Detail #02 – I wanted to add some further sentiment, or a sub-title, to my page so again I’ve used a different alpha from the Mon Ami Alphabet Sticker Sheet.


Hey Beautiful Girl! - Detail 03


Detail #03 – To further add to the collage look, I’ve added some BasicGrey packaging and torn ticket stubs from the Capture Occasions Waterfall Pack behind my photograph.


Thanks for dropping by today, I hope you enjoyed my Blueprint post today featuring the Mon Ami collection and Alphabet Sticker Sheet.




Brag Book | Melissa Phillips | Spice Market





Melissa Phillips: “Hi friends, Melissa here! Spice Market is such a perfect name this savory collection and brings to mind rich and colorful destinations filled with delicious colors and spices.


The world




I began with the Spice Market Waterfall Theme Pack and selected a journaling card for each card to use as my focal point. I then added in a few smaller die cuts from the Waterfall Theme Pack to use as accents.




The Painted Stamped Metal Shapes are so lovely and intricate and make great building blocks from where you can add smaller chipboard and die cut pieces.  Last but certainly not least, the Spice Market Mixed Brads and Colored Studs are perfect finishing touches and add so much character and originality.










What a fun collection Spice Market is, leaving you inspired and ready to mix and match to suit your own style and tastes. What do you love about Spice Market? Please share!

Arielle Gordon: Hello, Arielle here with a hybrid layout using BasicGrey’s Hello Elements 1 & 2 and Hey Girl papers.




I love the bright colors of these collections, especially the teal and orange papers – perfect for a boy (even if they are from Hey Girl!). I started in Photoshop, digitally laying out my sketch and with the papers and elements. The elements are so fun – especially the viewmaster real.




Since I couldn’t trim it out very easily, I added a slight shadow to it and merged it to one of my papers. I set up my title, which I printed alone on 8.5×11″ cardstock. Then I printed the other things separately to trim out. I stamped on some paint splashes in various inks, and also spot embossed a few areas before adhering my layers. The button is from my stash.
