The One with BasicGrey FRESH CUT Layouts

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

I received a super happy mail box from BasicGrey the other week full to the brim with the lovely Fresh Cut line (designed by my past AC co-workers Courtney and Clairice - you guys ROCK!)
I finally got a few hours to scrapbook earlier this week and here's what I made with this ultra gorgeous line:

Journaling says: Dear Jane - do you know how much we love you? You are the sweetest girl in the whole wide world and your smile is contagious! You bring us so much joy! We love you!

How to: Punch 1" square from patterned paper and trim them in half to make triangles. Adhere the triangles in a chevron pattern across the top half of a mint cardstock layout base then sew over the chevrons. Place two photos at the bottom and layer and tuck flowers and stickers around the pictures as shown. Add a puffy flower photo corner sticker on each corner then drop white spray mist over the bottom half. Journal with a white pen between the chevrons.

Supplies: Patterned paper, chipboard flowers, stickers (flowers, journaling spot, letters, puffy photo corners, puffy scalloped frame, scalloped border), die cuts (flowers, leaves): BasicGrey; Cardstock, adhesive, square punch: American Crafts; Spray mist: Studio Calico; Pen: Uniball Signo; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark

Journaling says: I turn my head for two and a 1/2 seconds and what do you do? Get into anything you possibly can within your little arm's reach! You love to get into my make up, the cooking pots, the recycling, and of course all your toys!

How to: Paint white swatches across the middle of a blue patterned paper layout base. Add a photo to the top left and bottom right corners. Fussy cut flowers from patterned paper then adhere them along with die cut, transparency, and chipboard flowers over and around the photo as shown. Build paper flowers with brads and add them to the flower mix. Draw lines on the top left and bottom right corners and journal on them with a black pen. Place salmon letter stickers by the journaling to make the title and drop dark gray spray mist over the journaling. Stamp the date on a label sticker and add it and a sentiment tab sticker to the bottom of the right picture.

Supplies: Patterned paper, chipboard (bow, flowers), stickers (flowers, labels, letters, sentiment tab), flowers transparency, build-a-flowers: BasicGrey; Pen, adhesive, roller date stamp: American Crafts; Paint: FolkArt; Spray mist: Studio Calico; Ink: StazOn; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark

A DAUGHTER IS... by Paige Evans

Journaling says: A daughter is one of the most beautiful gifts the world has to give.

Note: I channeled my inner Becky Novacek to make this layout with all the hand cut letters :)

How to: Hand cut letters from patterned paper and figure out the placement, leaving a space for a photo. Paint lines of watercolors across a white cardstock background then lightly adhere the letters over the painted lines. Sew straight lines across each row of letters. Add a photo to the empty space and back it with a puffy scalloped frame sticker cut in two. Place a wood veneer bird on the photo and stamp the date below. Sprinkle buttons, brads, and a chipboard flower over the "O"s and "D" of the quote.

Supplies: Patterned paper, fabric brads, chipboard flower, wood veneer bird, puffy scalloped frame sticker: BasicGrey; Cardstock, buttons, roller date stamp, ink, adhesive: American Crafts; Watercolors: Prang; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark
