Beach Layout

By Katelyn Grosart


Hey G45 Fans! This is a bittersweet post as this is my last project for Graphic 45. There are no words to express how much I enjoyed these last two years designing for Graphic 45. Thank you to Diane, Charee, Aimee and Jeff for this amazing opportunity.

Spring has sprung here on the west coast of Canada and that means the weather is perfect for heading to the beach and enjoying the ocean breeze.   With just coming back from the beach, I had the perfect photo just waiting to be scrapbooked. So with the photo in one hand and the Sun Kissed collection in the other hand, I set off to create my Sun Kissed Scrapbook Layout. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite springtime beverage and enjoy the photos and tutorial of my Sun Kissed Scrapbook Layout”.



Tip: I love to mix paper flowers in amongst the fussy cut images.



Tip: For extra dimension, layer in netting in behind a few of the patterned paper layers.



Tip: Adhere the banners from the collection onto a piece of twine and then they can be adhered where ever on your layout.

Katelyn, I have so enjoyed being your teammate these past two years. Your fresh and fun designs have really made the G45 papers shine! Meeting you at CHA this past January was so much fun. You are a sweetheart...and so very talented! I can't wait to see what doors open for you next. Thanks for everything! Big Hugs!

This layout should be framed; it's so beautiful! Love all the elements that go into making this a trip to the beach on paper. Lovely job Katelyn and thanks for all the inspiration during your time as a Graphic45 Ambassador.
