In December I had the chance to shop the Memories Trend Store and I filled my cart with some favourites, including several Teresa Collins cut-apart sheets. They were the inspiration for this layout which features several journal cards in both vertical and horizontal formats. Quintessentially me is the repeated working of a geometric form (the rectangle),the pattern paper layering, the use of text as embellishment and accenting the neutral colour palette with pops of scarlet and gold.
Per Anna's request I'm also providing a sketch based on this layout. In creating this sketch I wanted to cater for all types of scrapbookers. Thus I incorporated a pocket where one can tuck in an accordion mini-book filled with photos and provided ample space on the right for a series of journaling labels which will hopefully appeal to memory keepers who wish to scrap multiple photos and tell their stories. Of course the creative scrapper can interpret the sketch differently and go for a more artistic look with lots of layering behind the photo and replace the journal block with a series of fun embellishments. If you like this sketch and make a layout based on it, I'd love for you to share it on the Memories Trend Facebook page.
