More Simple Scrapping (with Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry)

For those of you who have "seen" me around this blog and the PDSS forum by now you've probably discerned that I am a pretty simple scrapper. Don't get me wrong, I love embellishments and layers as much as the next person, but I tend to like clean straight lines and keeping the visual interest directed at the photo.

I also happen to be a big fan of Basic Grey, but I often read comments in blog land that a lot of people struggle with using BG because of their pattern heavy lines. I think this is where there is some benefit to being a simple scrapper. I made this layout using Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry line.

The doily papers are a very busy pattern so I used that as my background, mounted the photo on a "B" side green paper, cut a strip of the yellow floral paper and scallop punched both edges, then cut out some circles from the pink pattern. I popped up the pink circles on pop dots and placed the dimensional stickers on top.

To create that straight line I love so much I placed these on top of a brown (grounding) border sticker. This runs a nice horizontal line which the horizontal photo can sit on. I repeated the green doily background with the chipboard to make a circular title from the letter stickers included in the collection pack (which helps to break up all the angles you end up with when using straight lines).

The felt strawberry plays off the word "sweet" in the title. The tiny felt flowers run down the side of the photo and to really draw the eye right where I want it, I made a green bow with the ends "cornering" my photo. Once the ribbon was placed, I felt I needed something to balance out the right side, so I drew faux brown stitching (since everything was glued and it was too late to run it through the machine lol!).

So there you have it, a simple (but pattern heavy layout)!
