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

"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

Life is the Flower Layout

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/

Picture Perfect - Double Layout

By Magda Cortez

"Hi All. Today I’m going to show you this double layout I made for this month's assignment. My daughter got married 4 years ago and I think this is the time to use those beautiful pictures. OH MY! Time flies! It was so fun to make the double layout because it is something I don’t get to do and, believe me, it was a challenge!! I decided to use the mixed media technique combined with the beauty of fussy cutting. I love it and I think it is perfect for this project. Did you notice I didn’t use black? ...I hope you like it!

XOXO" ~Magda Cortez

Cityscapes Double Layout

By Alexandra Morein

 

"In scrapbooking, as in any other field of arts and crafts, there are things that we each don’t feel quite comfortable doing, since they seem just “not our cup of tea”. Sometimes something leads us away from the comfort zone to which all of us are so used to.

During the DT term on the Graphic 45 team, I have already been challenged a few times to leave that comfort zone and create something new.

Today I am sharing one of those projects, which taught me a new side of scrapbooking. I have never created layouts, and for this month our assignment was to create not a single, but a double layout!

For my project I’ve used the ever-beautiful Cityscapes collection, since the theme of the layout is dedicated to London.

I hope you like what I came up with." ~Alexandra Morein

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.
