Amber – Week 2 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo? Get started here!

The Basic Grey PB & J is such a bright, fun collection, with colors and patterns perfect for any boy or girl. It’s fun chipboard elements, stickers and metal flowers really make you look forward to Spring! I had so much fun with this collection – here is the sketch:

And here is my layout. I loved the blues and reds in this collection, and knew they would work perfectly for my photos!

Scrapbooking layout using Basic Grey PB & J

I used the navy chipboard alphas for my title, and the small spots are actually the centers of the letters that I would normally throw away. They just landed on my page as I was doing the title – and I quite liked them! Again I hand stitched around the circle, just to add a little more interest to the page, and used a star punch to break up the line of the circle.

Adding dimension and texture to scrapbooking layouts

I mirrored the element cluster on the bottom of the circle, and added these fun chipboard rectangles to the bottom corner as it looked a little bare.
