Curious about Memory Keeping? Here are two Olde Curiosity Shoppe Layout Tutorials to Help

Hello, G45ers!

It is time to jump into another craft filled week with a trip to the Olde Curiosity Shoppe, featuring two stunning layouts by design team members, Marina Blaukitchen and Lena Astafeva. Marina will put your creative gears in motion with a thoughtfully designed double page layout that also features Typography and Communique pages. Check out the included Snapguide tutorial for more! If that has not satisfied your curiosity, Lena then introduces her first ever canvas layout, an ornately designed piece that features an abundance of fussy cut oddities from this quirky collection. You can view her YouTube video for a full tutorial. We love how these two projects contrast to show how versatile a single collection can be when used by talented artists with distinct aesthetics, even while using similar techniques such as embossing. As if these projects were not enough, this week we are giving you a chance to win your very own Olde Curiosity Shoppe DCE prize pack. To enter, comment on the blog and/or Facebook today and all week. A winner will be chosen randomly and announced right here on the blog this Friday.

Double Layout Olde Curiosity Shoppe Tutorial

by Marina Blaukitchen 

 

"I love how double layout looks because they create an effect that reflects unity and continuity in the scene when you need some cohesion between the photos that you are going to use.

The main element that links these pages is the papers. The fact that the pages coordinate with each other does not mean that their design may be identical or the decorations must be the same. It is much more attractive to combine different elements because he pages will gain visual appeal. I used the same background and I've tried playing with the ornaments to unify and merge the images.

Thinking of giving importance to the essence of what I wanted to convey with my daughters photos, their creativity and their imagination, I let the butterflies fly from the left page to the one on the right where they come into contact with the gears that start the creative processes symbolized in a small key." ~Marina Blaukitchen

Tips:

 

  • Select the same paper for the background of both pages.
  • Add other papers to break the uniformity and serve as the basis for each of the photos.
  • Include other techniques such as embossing or mixed media notes. I used embossing on this occasion.

Olde Curiosity Shoppe Canvas

by Lena Astafeva

"I’ve tried to make the layout out of canvas for the first time. I used spray, paints, glitter, and , of course, Graphic 45 paper. I’ve taken a photo, where there are my friends and me. And now this unusual layout is on my desk." ~Lena Astafeva

Gorgeous projects and an incredible prize!

I lvoe seeing layouts! These are fabulous!

Fabulous and creative layouts ladies!

Super ideas, have to try. Awesome giveaway.

Great layouts. I have been a little afraid of using Graphic 45 on 12x12 album pages. Seeing these layouts has encouraged me to try.

Such beautiful projects!

Great layouts, the papers are just perfect.
Thank you.

I love the gear/butterfly combo with black and white faces....I so need to do this!

Just beautiful. So inspiring.

What an amazing prize this week, and some I would love to win, as we haven´t been able to get it here anywhere, and I´ve seen so many stunning projects with this one, and todays projects is no different, but absolut stunning

Hi from across the pond - Two great projects today from two very talented people. Thank you for the chance to win this fabulous paper collection.

Love this collection. I am so glad you have released it again. The papers are so diverse, Halloween, fairy tales and so many more for whatever comes to mind.

All the little details of both projects are amazing. I love the Olde Curiosity Shoppe collection, so much fun to play with!

Preciosos proyectos, me gustan mucho los papeles

Imaginative and beautiful projects. Love them both. I'm really excited for the chance to win one of my all time favorite collections!

Awesome layout and prize package! Thank you Graphic 45!

Really cute layouts, a lot of new with vintage classic. plus I love the touch of steampunk mixed in with both of these layouts as well.

I love this collection! I've always been a fan of the unusual. And the ladies both did the collection justice with their lovely layouts.

What a great prize pack. Thanks for the every day inspiration.

Such gorgeous and unique layouts by Marina and Lena. What wouldn't you make with this week's prize pack?! You get incredible "mileage" out of every single sheet of G45 paper, not to mention all the other goodies included! I can envision some cards and Halloween projects (at least!) with this prize. Thanks for the chance to win.

Beautiful scrapbook and canvas projects! Thanks for the inspiration and the chance to win such an awesome prize package!

Beautiful layouts today, thanks for the inspiration. I would do my usual - cards, cards and more cards!! And maybe a family heritage album layout or two. Judy D.

Love Old Curiosity Shoppe - so quirky! And these two projects show two sides to the collection - one soft and dreamy and the other bold and complicated!

Adorable layouts..Lovely Butterflies and hardware...Thanks for this wonderful chance..

Lovely projects just love this paper so adorable

Love the hinges
on the gorgeous
layout. The canvas
is beautiful.

This is the kind of paper that really gets the imagination stirring, I've never had this collection before. I've seen some amazing configuration boxes using this one. I'd like to try something 3D with the media box, a keepsake box for my souvenirs. Or a miniature dolls house. Or a pop up book of some kind.

Gads I forgot about the butterflies in the Old Curiosity Shop. Now I will have to get this Collectors Edition PRONTO! Both projects are amazing as always 💞❤️💕

Ole Curiosity Shoppe is the collection that first got me interested in paper arts :) I will always LOVE this collection. This was when I fell in love with paper. G45 is the only paper I buy. So thankful i found yall.

Love both layouts. What a good idea with the hinges! I would like to know the colors of the sprays you used Lena . They look like they would coordinate with most of the G45 papers.

Awesome giveaway! I want to make an album in a box with this one, or even better: in a suitcase!

Shanti

This is my favourite G45 collection! I just adore the colours and love that it suits masculine and feminine projects!

WOW fabulous inspiration today!!

Thanks for the chance

Love anything Graphic 45. The best designer paper around!💜🤗

These are absolutely incredible! Beautiful work! Of course you would feature a giveaway with one of my favorite collections! Thank you!

Thank You G45 For The Opportunity To Win Such An Amazing Prize!

Love the prize package! Love the projects!

I kid you not! Olde Curiosity Shoppe was my first scrappy love, my introduction into true scrapping. Idaho Amy had a little store and she adored Graphic. Pick Me!!!! And if you don't, it's all good, I'm still your biggest fan.

Beautiful! The projects are always so inspiring.
