New Scrapbooking Adventures
I know, it's been forever.... summer is hitting here, and we've been busy.
I have some exciting news to share, though!!
Treasured Memories, my favourite local scrapbooking store in Edmonton, has asked me to be on their Design Team!!!!!
That's right, I'm super lucky to work with them and have been enjoying the challenge of working with specific products.
I was given a selection of Basic Gray's new line, Peanut butter and jelly, to play with and I like how the layouts turned out. Here are my contributions from last month:
This is Gracie and Berlyn after strollersize one day.
You might have to click on this one, to see the whole title, the letters blend into the background a bit in the picture. I used a lot of the journaling tags, a metal flower, and some leftovers from the other papers on this one. I like the 3-D diamonds along the side. I just layered two different sizes, and used a pop dot to make them stick out a bit more.
I layered the metal flowers in this layout, to help them pop, and used a bit of the packaging, because it was so cute. (That paper with a bunch of flowers on it, bottom right hand corner? Yep, that was from the package that the metal flowers came in.)
Can you see Gracie's sign?? It says, "Go, Daddy, Go!" That picture makes me smile.
I used a bunch of the paper strips, which Basic Gray includes on the bottom of each page, where most companies put their barcodes. It's like a little bonus, in my opinion.I also cut out some pieces of the chevron paper behind the photo and embossed others. This is hard to see in the photo, too, but I had fun playing.
Hope you enjoyed. If you live in Edmonton, or will be visiting this summer, stop in at Treasured Memories. I guarantee the projects in store, as well as the great people who work there will inspire you.
