Time Creates Wonderful Memories to Fill Layouts

Time Creates Wonderful Memories 1

Today, we have just wonderful layouts and even a tag from two layout masters. G45 Ambassador Jane Tregenza and DT member Robin Shakoor will wow you with their projects. Robin even has a tutorial with hers! What a fun day this will be!

We always love Jane's thoughtful descriptions of her gorgeous projects. Take it away, Jane:

"This new  'Artisan Style' collection from Graphic 45 is just beautiful. I really love the Art Deco feel to it. The colours are vibrant and strong, with a wide range of colours to work with.

Each time I get a new collection from Graphic 45, I spend time just looking at all the elements on each page. Then I turn them over and check out the backs. It’s the backs of the papers that I really love working with.

 

For this layout I have chosen to keep it simple. The layout doesn’t need a lot of stuff on it as the papers are so beautiful. I wanted them to be the feature, along with a special photo. So I only chose 3 print papers + the back of one of them. I had to use one of my favourite papers from another Graphic 45 collection to give me a plainer background to show off the more vibrant colours of the 'Artisan' Collection. In keeping it simple, I used the back of “Decorative Flourish” for the background. I really love those Art Deco Dragonflies and as soon as I saw them, I knew I had the perfect metal charm to really set the print paper off. Next I used my favourite print paper from this collection.  “Attention to Detail” is stunning and I love both sides of this paper. I love it so much; I used it two times on this layout with the lovely floral side showing, and a third time on the other side with the blue pattern.

 

Imaginarium Designs Chipboard- flower and fern, along with a title and some charms all help to make it a quick layout.

With a perfect photo of three of my girls – this layout is already a favourite. This layout is perfect for anyone wanting a simple but lovely Graphic 45 Artisan Style layout." ~Jane

"I simply adore the “Raining Cats and Dogs” collection.  I decided to create a tag and layout this month to showcase these fabulous designs.  I created a tutorial for the tag to show how to create a fast and easy background using washi tape.   I added a photo of my dog Chance to my tag and created a bow to resemble a bow tie for his photo.  I created a flower for the top of my tag using the “Raining Cats and Dogs” Flowers sheet.  To finish my design I added a chipboard sentiment from the “Raining Cats and Dogs” Decorative Chipboard sheet." ~Robin

Tip:  You can create custom embellishments for your pages using a variety of dies.  This saves time when trying to find coordinating accents for your page." ~Robin
