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

"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

Tip:

  1. Save pamphlets and other items to include in you scrapbooks.
  2. If you have lots of photos; create a small mini tag book to tuck behind the photo that has been placed on pop dots.
  3. Using a bit of crackle paste with stencil to give extra dimension to your projects.

Love these pages! So cute!

Beautiful projects - I can see I will be using all my hoarded papers at this rate !! Thank you.

As I have said in the pass you are amazing paper designers and this collection is so beautiful too. This is one I'd enjoy working with too. And if I get my hands on the Safari paper I'd love to do an album and send it to Adventure Park in New York since they just had a baby boy giraffe. It would be a special gift for them to add pictures too. Beautiful work all around.

Beautiful and fun layouts. I love it when you guys share your layouts.

Your prize package for this week is ever so generous! These 2 collections, both featuring beautiful ladies, are favorites of many, including me!!
