Scrapbooking Layout Templates: The Weekly Challenge

Many scrapbooking sites have tutorials and weekly tips and challenges with included scrapbooking layout templates for you to try your hand at. That’s pretty much the bulk of how I learned my current arsenal of techniques. Many scrapbookers also share techniques with each other at events like a local ‘crop’.

One such blog that offers a weekly challenge is over at BasicGrey and this week’s is quite a nice design you can try. She also gives a helpful list of materials used. Add this to your arsenal….

Scrapbooking Layout Templates


Too Cute 4 Words | Els Brige

Happy Monday, BasicGrey fans!  We hope you had a great weekend and found a few minutes to create.  We’re kicking off the week with a sketch based on this layout from BasicGrey design team member Els Brige.  I love that horizontal strip of photos paired with the large embellishment in the upper left corner.

Els notes, “I created a layout with a pretty easy sketch for this weeks challenge. There’s a row of three smaller pictures with a mat and some additional layers added to it on the lower part of the layout. And on the other hand there’s this simple butterfly focal point in the top left corner to balance out the layout.”

She continues, “I had a lot of fun creating this layout. While I had a monochromatic layout in mind using the Little Black Dress collection, it is amazing to see how just a little pop of color can make this page really interesting. I chose to repeat the colors of the small floral paper and added a dash of pink (and even some orange) here and there. Eventually I used elements from three different collections for this layout. They mix and match perfectly together.”

I had a lot of fun with this scrapbooking layout template challenge and appreciated the simple line drawing outline plus the materials list. As easy as following a recipe, really.
