As some of you know, I teach a class monthly using the Basic Grey retailer's kit. We always have lots of fun and get quite a bit of scrapbooking done too. Besides the double page layout that Basic Grey provides, I also design two more one page layouts from the "leftovers". I've had to be quite creative some months to produce those extra layouts. This month I tried an experiment and I think it worked out well.
First we made this layout. It's pretty simple, a beautiful background paper and lots of pictures set up in a grid style. Then fun embellishments with some fussy cutting and border work.
The second layout is where I tried something new. I started with the red background paper. Then I took the large circle paper and we cut out the center of it. I believe that this center piece was used for something on the BG layout. Then I had them score the paper and fold it back so that the back side of the patterned paper was shown.
It was a fun way to save paper and learn a new folding technique. If you live around the Birmingham, Alabama area and would like to get involved in this class please email me and I will get you in contact with the right people. :)
I've got three project reveals this week for my design team work. Petaloo is having a fun school themed blog hop, SRM Stickers is showing my mini calendar idea, and Papercrafter's Corner is having "Button Week" and I've got a couple of projects being shown. I'll post about each one when it happens.
At home we are hoping that Hurricane Isaac does not knock too hard on our door but we are bracing for some pretty wet weather for sure. Stay safe everyone!
