Basic Scrapbook Sketch : 1.21.13

This week’s sketch from BG sketch artist Susan Stringfellow is sure to be a favorite with our legion of two page layout fans!  What’s that?  You don’t create two page layouts?  Not a problem, you can still use this sketch!  Use only one side of the sketch to create a one page layout, or reduce it to create a card – the possibilities are endless!

BasicGrey scrapbook designer Marinette Lesne used this week’s sketch to create this amazing layout.  Marinette says, “When I saw the double page layout sketch for this week,  I was a little scared because I never do two pages layouts but I love the sketch and the way this turned out. First, I decided to create a single page and instead of using multiple photos I chose to use only one square photo.  When I printed out my photo I already knew that the Paper Cottage collection suited the photo perfectly. I adore the pattern and embellishments from this line and I ‘m a huge fan of those accordion stickers.”

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 January 27, 2013 at 11:59p MST.

If you upload your layout to your blog or online gallery, we hope you’ll also upload it to our BasicGrey flickr pool and note what products you’ve used so that other BG fans can find inspiration from your work easily.

  1. Ooooh, another 2-pager. (Love the 2-pagers!) I like how this one uses all the little border snippets and I know it’s just an example but I love the shape of those leaf thingies! I want to BUY those leaf thingies! I NEED those leaf thingies!!!!

  2. I like the helpful information you provide in your articles.

    I’ll bookmark your blog and check again here regularly.

    I’m quite certain I will learn a lot of new stuff right here!
    Best of luck for the next!

  3. Hey! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does building a well-established website such as yours require a
    large amount of work? I’m brand new to blogging however I do write in my diary
    everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my
    experience and views online. Please let me know if you have
    any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
