With cold weather and hurricanes, I needed something to cheer me up so I designed this week’s Make & Take, “Sweet Memories of 2012,” with Basic Grey’s Plumeria line. Flowers with lavender, creams and greens were so cheery to work with. The embellishments come from the Plumeria chipboard or stickers. One thing I love about this line is that the letters are chipboard, rather than stickers, and there are lots of them so you have plenty to spell whatever you want. You can make Sweet Memories of almost anything. A few I thought of were of Love, My Daughter, Spring, Weddings, Vacation. Really anything that you have pictures of. Of course, you’re not limited to “Sweet” you could substitute another word or just start with “Memories.” The layered “Memories” is the free element for this week’s Make & Take. Add a few self-sticking pearls of cream and lavender and you are done!
For those of you not familiar with how Make & Takes work, every Wednesday one of Scrapbook Plus’s designers creates a two-page layout specially for you to copy. It is displayed at the cash register, the items you need to make the page are displayed together so it is easy for you to get just what you need, written instructions are provided, and we give you a free element. It’s your choice whether you make the page at the store so you can use the actual sample or take the items home and make using the instructions, which include a picture. Either way this is a great way to make a page a week and get that stash of pictures on pages.
There are limited supplies this week so be sure to get to Scrapbooks Plus as soon as you can. And you’ll have lots of extra chipboard so pick up a few extra pieces of paper and you’ll be able to make another layout or two. The variety is great so you’re layouts won’t look the same.
