A Layout-Filled Labor Day

Good Ol Sport Pocket Scrapping 3

Happy Labor Day to our G45ers celebrating today! We are sharing wonderful layouts today. Andrew Roberts and Annette Green have created some amazing layouts that will make your Monday.

There's also a new blog contest this week! Want to win a Good ol' Sport $35 prize pack? Just comment here on the blog or on our Facebook page and you could be our randomly chosen winner. We will announce that winner on Friday, September 5 here on the blog. Have fun!


Andrew shows us how much character, fun, and amazing layering a pocket scrapbooking layout can be! His kids are the cutest, and we love this layout.

"The inspiration for this pocket scrapping was the masculine nature of the good ol sport collection. It works so well with any masculine project and the wonderful coordinated elements in every collection lend themselves perfectly to the pocket scrapping style.

TIP: Graphic 45 chipboard elements make great pockets and use the sticker tags and cut apart papers to create photo mounts and journalling spots." ~Andrew

Annette has the most beautiful dog that we all love here at Graphic 45 - the beautiful Suki! Annette shares her fur baby on this awesome Raining Cats & Dogs layout.

"I was beyond thrilled when I saw the Raining Cats & Dogs collection! A big dog-lover, it made me so happy and I couldn’t wait to get started on some projects. I often create layouts of our sweet Sheltie, Suki, so that’s exactly what I did first. I think of Suki as a member of the family, and I also happen to think she’s the most beautiful dog on the planet, so I love taking photos of her and sharing them. I also send thank-you cards to the staff where Suki stays when we go out of town with a photo of her included. They seem to enjoy getting the cards, so you can imagine how they’re going to LOVE future cards made with Raining Cats & Dogs!" ~Annette
