Basic Grey Challenges

I love the Basic Grey Challenges. I love that they help me use up my old stash and I love that they get my creative juices flowing.

Over the weekend I did one of their recent challenges. The challenge was to use your punches to create a background. What a great idea - not something I do very often. You can see the challenge here.

This actually inpsired me to complete two layouts.

The first was using my circle punches to create bubbles of water behind a photo of Matthew and Simon swimming. I used some of the Basic Grey Lauderdale collection - mainly picking out the blues and greens.

The second layout uses the Ambrosia collection and my square stamp punch. This photo was taken at Chessington Zoo in January and I must say Im very proud of the photo. These papers show off the colours of the tiger perfectly.

Im really pleased with how this challenge made me do something a bit different with my scrapbooking. Thanks Basic Grey


  1. They're both lovely layouts Lorna and you're right that photo is amazing.

  2. Both of these are fabulous Lorna. I think the papers you've chosen on both these layouts are just perfect for your photos
