National Scrapbook Day Giveaway – Win Graphic 45 Little Women!

Welcome to National Scrapbook Day on Craft Critique! I’ve got a great giveaway to celebrate with thanks to Graphic 45 – and a simple layout that I hope will get you inspired to scrapbook today!

Graphic 45 Little Women large

This new Graphic 45 collection celebrates the classic book “Little Women” by Louisa May Alcott. Every young girl who reads the story sees herself in one of the four sisters whose lives share the book’s pages. (Of course, I’m a Jo!) This gorgeous celebration of reading and storytelling is perfect for scrapbooking any number of childhood moments.

I chose a photo of my daughter reading with her daddy to share with this collection. This is an old photo, over ten years old, part of a stash of forgotten enlargements I recently rediscovered while cleaning my mess, I mean studio.

Graphic 45 Little Women layout

Supplies Needed:

The diagonal color blocking is a dramatic look. But it worked great – the photo of my daughter stood out brilliantly against the blue background and then the darker side of the photo stands out on the yellow print. The yellow paper balances the yellow on the layout by sitting opposite the yellow on my daughter’s pajamas.

I did the same color balancing with the pink & green, pairing the two pink elements on opposing sides of the diagonal divide and giving them green accents. The flower die is a Graphic 45 Staple and the layers work together beautifully! I used three graduated shades of cardstock (lighter on the bottom) to create the flower and give the illusion of shading.

The quote card was the perfect choice because it included the word “storybook) and it pulled the blue background print over to the other side of the diagonal.

So, are you ready for the giveaway? One lucky reader is going to win a Graphic 45 Little Women collection pack!

  47. Marianne B in AZ May 6, 2018 at 4:14 pm #

    This had to be my favorite of the three collections that you and G-45 are giving away for NSD (or tied with Floral Shoppe – only 2 and the choice is a hard one!). I really like the diagonal lines of this LO. You did agreat job with the color choices. Thank you for the chance to win.

    I am not sure how you had this blog and I didn’t know about it! I have followed you on Scrapbook Udate for quite some time and have read posts from Chasing Dust Bunnies. This blog? I have completely missed it somehow! I just saw a reference to it in an older post on CDB and came to have a look. I’m in!

  48. marybeth i May 6, 2018 at 10:07 pm #

    Little Women is my absolute favorite book. I read it at least once a year, probably more than 100 times so far in my life. My son is even named Laurence. If I ever have a daughter she’ll be Josephine. What a beautiful product line and beautiful page! Thanks for a chance to win.

    Nancy, this really is a cute layout! I appreciate that you explained why you chose the pattern, colors, etc. I’m not a scrapbook page type of gal…cards are more my speed. Your reasons were helpful for me to understand layouts better. Thank you!
