BasicGrey Blueprint

I’m up on the BasicGrey blog today with my take on the most recent Blueprint inspiration piece. This was a really fun one! Check it out. Here is the inspiration piece I was given.


And here is my resulting page.


First of all, how cute is that typewriter! And I just love the shredded paper coming out of it. I knew right away that I would recreate that element on my page. But I also really loved the color scheme! I pulled out the Carte Postale collection and a few snapshots from our trip to Arches National Park a few years ago and got to work.

Carte Postale collection: Madison Avenue paper, Fremont Street paper5×7 Spiral Journal, Element Stickers,  Alphabet StickersDie Cuts & TransparenciesMetal Flair, Mixed Brads, Page Flags, Wood Veneer Die Cuts
Other: Date Stamp, “Away We Go” stamp from the Ali Edwards August 2013 Away We Go set.


I used my Silhouette Cameo to create the waves on my page. I used the waves from this cut file by Loni Leah from the Silhouette Online Store. I enlarged them and then used scissors to hand cut the little pieces, and then adhered everything in place using the inspiration photo as a guide.

I have mentioned my love for tearing apart the spiral journals before, and here I have done it again. I tore out a tabbed page to use behind my photo, and then used two more to house my journaling.


I love the look of the torn vintage postage stamps, too. They are like little mini postcards! Cute!

Enjoy your weekend!

  1. Nope, I am like you, have to focus on one thing at a time. Hate multi-tasking! Such a cute layout, she is growing into such a beautiful young lady.

    Just want to say thanks for the previous post about curly hair. I have fought mine my whole life. I am so getting that book!!
