Biker Chick Robbie Herring has a Makin' the Grade project and tips to share with us today.
I have really enjoyed working with the Makin' the Grade Collection. This is my second layout with it and I've been getting some of my daughter's senior memories down on paper. I love that Makin' the Grade, although at first glance might look like it's only for little ones, works perfectly for teens, too!
I chose to use the Alpha Block Paper for the background border on this layout. I really like choosing a paper with lots of colors to go with pictures that have several people in them. Seldom do the clothes in group pictures fit just perfectly with any paper and playing up the multiple colors works well even if not every color is a match. I then topped that multi-colored paper with a more neutral paper to allow my photo to take center stage.
If you have seen much of my work, you know that I love lots of demension in my layouts. Don't be afraid to add foam dots to your stickers, too! Foam dots makes clustering embellishments so easy and gives you more options for layering.
