2 Double Page Layouts, 2 Tutorials, 1 Great Adventure! Featuring Off to the Races and Safari Adventure

Hello, G45ers!

Today, we are Off to the Races and on a Safari Adventure with two exciting double page layouts by talented design team members, Elena Olinevich and Pam Bray. Elena starts us off on the right track with a minimalist design and a creative use of Off to the Races that is just the ticket. Using a few thoughtfully chosen paper and chipboard designs throughout and arranging it all with careful intention is a sure bet for creating a winning layout. Her YouTube tutorial offers great odds of learning a new trick or two. Pam guides us through the jungle of layout design with a fantastically full Safari Adventure layout. Sometimes a project comes roaring to life with the perfect combination of subject and Graphic 45 collection. The included SnapGuide will make sure to get you through this crafting adventure unscathed. Place your bets and hold onto your safari hats because it is time to dive in.

Off to the Races Double Layout

by Elena Olinevich

 

"This is my second double layout in my life. I have to confess I do it rarely. However, I have found it’s quite a fascinating process, as you need to plan how to place the photos on 2 almost identical backgrounds.

 I found the pictures of my daughter playing at the country house we went to last year. The kids were playing hide and seek, and I thought what collection suits this activity. Then I realized that Off to the Races would be a perfect match for all the purposes.

I started by tearing the black sheet into 2 asymmetrical parts , that I placed at the edge, so that if you connect 2 layouts together it seems that the black background is one whole piece.

I didn’t want to make my layouts busy with the embellishments. It’s always a challenge for me to place the bold papers into one dynamic composition. I used almost the same paper patterns for all the pictures.

It’s better to vary the size of your layers. In my case, I used the etched dies, one bigger and one smaller, so that it won’t be all the same.

You can check my video tutorial to see how I created the layout." ~Elena Olinevich

Safari Adventure Double Layout with Tutorial

by Pam Bray

 

“Have you ever thought of the town, city, state or maybe even country you live in? There are so many things to see; so many things to do that most overlook what they have closest to them, to try discover things that are far away. That is what happened to us. We have lived in Tennessee for 15 years and many times have driven down the interstate heading to another state, but on this one occasion, we saw a sign and it said Safari Adventure Park, Alamo TN. On Good Friday we decided to take our grand kids to investigate it…what a rare oddity to have just a little over an hour from our house. We were able drive through the park and feed the animals through the windows of the truck. We had camels, llamas, deer, hogs, zebras, etc. come right up to our truck. What an experience we had that day; a day full of laughs and good times. Creating unforgettable memories with our grandkids. Get on the computer, look at a map, and explore the things that are near your home, in your state or somewhere close by.” ~Pam Bray

Repurposed Odds and Ends: Vintage Hollywood DVD Box & Altered Craft Storage Cupboard

Hello, G45ers!

Graphic 45 is our name and unique papercrafting is our game. Today, we are diving in with two innovative crafting projects by Marina Blaukitchen and Olga Heldwein. First up, Marina shares a media storage case featuring Vintage Hollywood, perfect for DVDs or Blu-rays. This clever creation is full of thoughtful details including custom made Graphic 45 inserts for DVD sleeves and a little mini album, perfect for cinephiles to keep track of their favorite films. Next up, Olga shares an ambitious altered cupboard. This impressive invention features Olde Curiosity Shoppe - DCE and a lot of elbow grease! Olga's techniques could inspire a fun upcycling project if you have any shelves or dressers that could use some Graphic 45 flair. What a great way to store all those crafting supplies!

Tips:

Take the measure of the DVD boxes to make sure they will fit with some slack in the filing cabinet. It is very uncomfortable to be too tight.

Make new dvd covers and add decorations or number the films according to your personal style.

Altered Cupboard

By Olga Heldwein


"This project took me ages to finish. I had to re-paint it and I sand it between layers of paint. To age my cupboard I used G45 Decades inks Venetian Lace, Dark Cashmere and Photogenic, I applied my inks with brushes and sealed the whole piece with a few layers of aging verniks – With time it vill get more vintage and some discoloration will appear. Inside my cupboard, I Use dome DIY paper and on the drawers, beautiful paper from Olde Curiosity Shoppe - Deluxe Collector's Edition pack. As a finishing touch, I added some staples. All other elements here are moldprints from my collection of silicone molds." ~Olga Heldwein

"Café Parisian paper line is the best for making favor boxes, in my opinion. All the cut outs that you can get from the paper are perfect for embellishing birthday themed projects, with the sweet treats, cookies and pastries.

I would like to share a hexagon box (which I created from chipboard a while ago), embellished with the beautiful Café Parisian paper. The link to my old video tutorial for creating the box base may be found on my blog, and in the meanwhile I hope you will enjoy seeing the pictures of the final result here on the Graphic 45 blog." ~Alexandra Morein

By Einat Kessler


"I have been waiting for awhile to use the Nature Sketchbook collection because it’s so beautiful and I finally found the right photos for it. This layout took me more than 20 years back in time to when my husband and I were young and beautiful. The flowers and nature in the photos are complimented by the beautiful pieces I cut from the papers and the flowers I added." ~Einat Kessler

Tip #1:

Add a piece of chipboard behind the photos to give them more dimension. For more dimension add more than one piece.

Tip #2:

You don’t always have to cut an image exactly on the lines. Cutting around the image’s outer lines while leaving a little margin will take much less time!

Natural Beauty Layout

By Kathy Clement

 

"One of the best things about having grown children is the fact that every now and again, you get to run away from home with them and do something fabulously fun!  My daughter Liz and I love to run away to the mountains of western North Carolina where we relax on the incredible garden trails at the Biltmore House in Asheville.  Surrounded by natural beauty, we talk, hike, explore, relax, and reconnect.  These unfiltered photos were taken in October 2016, and looking at them brings back the joy we felt under that bright October blue sky.  Nature Sketchbook provided the perfect patterns, colors, and images to capture the memory of that perfect day in this double page scrapbooking layout.  I call it Natural Beauty for the gorgeous surroundings, and the lovely subject of the photos, my daughter Liz." -Kathy Clement

Designer Tips

 

  1. When doing a double page layout, you want to create a sense of flow and connection between the two pages.  For this layout, I fussy cut the gorgeous wildflower image from Nature Sketchbook 12x12 signature page, cut it down the middle and then glued each half on the center edge of each page.The image serves as a bridge between the two photos and connects them beautifully.
  2. Turn negative space into a positive.  I had used all my Nature Sketchbook cardstock flowers, but I always keep the empty template because it makes a great stencil!   Trace the evacuated petal layers onto designer paper then cut them out.  This way, you can make as many flowers as you need, and the colors will always be a perfect match for your layout.
  3. If mixed media techniques cause your designer paper to warp or buckle, don’t despair.  There’s an easy fix!  Paint the edges of two sheets of.12x12 medium weight chipboard with black chalk paint.  Heat dry.  Then use a Nature Sketchbook stamp and white pigment ink all along the edges.  Trim your designer paper to measure 11.5” x11.5”, back with Scor-Tape or other strong, dry adhesive and press onto the prepared chipboard.  Now you’ve created a sturdy custom mat for your mixed media layout, and your paper lays flat..
  4. To give chipboard elements extra depth and texture I like to paint them with Distress Paints.  While paint is still wet, I sprinkle with embossing powders and heat set.  Once the embossing powder cooled on the ferns in this layout, I went back and stamped over the tops with Jet Black Archival Ink and a Nature Sketchbook script stamp.  I have a Snapguide tutorial from an older project that outlines this process for you.  Here is the link:https://snapguide.com/guides/alter-chipboard-queen-annes-lace/
