My first layout is based on the first video, where the mat is very explicit. A great choice for two or more photos. The basic design can be worked over and over again, with variations.
The prominent diagonal stripe was a bold choice, but I like the energy it brings to the page. I think it keeps the block from being, well, too block-y.
With a small space for my title, I had to keep it short and sweet. I like the way the diagonal line is repeated in the black letters and I was fortunate to find Thickers that matched the cardstock framing my block. I normally would not use two uppercase fonts, but with space at a premium sometimes you just have to give a little. At least I varied the color and size.
I love the way this tag breaks out of the block, just a little. Enough to add interest and variety. That's all I need.
This layout is based on the fourth video, where the block is a pieced arrangement of various patterned papers. So many ways you could do this!

Scrapping right along with the video is so relaxing. What can I say? Sometimes I'm happy to be a follower. The page comes together quickly, and I'm learning not only what to do, but why to do it. Such great ideas.
I'm also greatly enjoying Basic Grey's Persimmon collection. This is the second or third layout I've made with this line, and I have yet to make a page about fall! That really speaks to its versatility.
I hope you'll check out the Scrapbook Coach series. With six very affordable classes to choose from and more on the way, it's a real treasure!
