BasicGrey Konnichiwa Layouts

I adore the Konnichiwa collection because it is perfect for scrapbooking my daughter's photos since she has this tiny cute eyes. The colors from this collection is also very girlie with all the pinks and reds.

For this layout, I did a simple layout by maximizing the 12x12 collection pack. I always make sure to keep the sample page that came with all BasicGrey collection pack. I find them perfect for making banners, adding small square or rectangular shapes and adding grid design to my layouts without the need to cutout from a whole sheet of 12x12 patterned paper.


 I also had so much fun cutting out the flower patterns from this collection. They are colorful, perfect for making them as an embellishment on my page.


My 2nd layout was for BasicGrey's Basic Sketch blogpost. Every Monday, the BG blog provides sketches with DT examples to help others jumpstart a project. Participants also has the chance to win BG's collection packs by simply making a project inspired by the sketches posted. Check it out here!



Every Chinese New Year I dress up my daughter in different Chinese inspired outfits. I have scrapped her previous photos but waited for Konnichiwa collection because I know it will go well with her photo this year. Even though the Konnichiwa line is Japanese inspired, the Asian theme and the cute Japanese girl sticker that came with the element sticker sheet made everything perfect.
