G45's 6 Favorite Layouts of 2018


Sun Kissed Layout

By Maggi Harding


Sun Kissed is the perfect collection for memorializing your beachside memories.  The bright colors and playful images will pair perfectly with photos of your family enjoying a sunny day by the sea.” ~Maggi



Tip:  Use layers of different shapes, i.e. squares, rectangles circles, to give your layouts more interest.  Pop up some fussy cut images to give your layout some dimension.

 Happy and Fun Layout

Fairie Dust

by Elena Olinevich


“I like looking through the pictures taken with my kids, it’s so fun to create the scrapbooking pages with their photos. This time I found a fun picture when they were younger and decided to created something with Fairie Dust collection


I knew that I wanted to add some watercolors to my layout, so I kept the white space for it and placed the background paper mostly in the right and in the left, just tearing it into parts.” ~Elena

Tip: Add dimension to your projects by curving your fussy cuts, such as these bottles.  Not only does it add depth, but also makes the bottles more lifelike.

Love of a Family Layout
Penny’s Paper Doll Family

By Elena Olinevich


“When I was a child I used to play with paper dolls and created them the dresses and other clothes. My kids are not interested so much in this good idea. Anyway, I decided to create something that will remind me of the past.

Moreover, I decided to use the picture of my kids.

#G45Love Mixed Media Canvas

Master Detective

By Olga Heldwein


The theme was love I just had to frame a photo of my parents. They were perfect sweethearts for more than 35 years. Always crazy in love and it was this kind of perfect love that you see in movies - till my dad passed away a few years ago. But still when I think about Love in general my parents just appear in my head as a perfect example.


You liked my previous video so you might check out this one again as I'm not learning my mistakes and my project went south again. But I pulled it off and left all steps in my process video as I got so much good feedback after last one.

This time my mistake was putting all this emotional value on my project and I really wanted to make something super special and totally forgot everything I know about framing photos.  (Rule number one - do not attach emotionally to project until you’re done.)

I'm semi new to scrape booking, and joined the Clubg45. This may be a silly question, but after completing the page layouts, how do I put them into a book? or are they not ment to go into book? and help would be great! I so excited to make this months layout!!
