Best Day Ever by Tami Taylor | Supplies: JBS Mercantile Kit – November 2013

Tami said, “When scrapbooking this event, I wanted to share the sense of confusion I had in trying to figure out who left this gift for me as well as the happiness I felt in knowing I had so many kind and dear friends. It honestly could have been any number of people (no one ever fessed up to doing it). I wanted the viewer to start by looking at the layout as a whole, unsure of what the most important thing was. Is it the Coca-cola? The journaling? Feathers? That it was the best day ever? In order to create a little confusion, I used a design without an obvious focal point. Each of the blocks in this grid have roughly equal visual weight.”

Katie Scott said, “When I looked at this sketch, the layout looked easy to execute with 6″ x 6″ patterned papers so I used it with those paperes to document the dates, places and faces of my McElroy family tree. They arrived in the US in 1875. I flipped the sketch because it worked better for my photo.”

Audrey Tan says, “I was attracted to the sketch’s four-block grid. I’ve never done a page like that before so I used it for my layout about a meet-up with my best friends in Singapore. I always try to see them when I’m in the country.”

“In creating the four blocks, I used digital transfer overlays. Different overlays provide foundations for each block, and the effect is an artsy style that varies from the inspiration piece.”

Devra Hunt says, “I used this sketch to tell the story about a time my son took our pillows and foot rests to create a creative nook in his room.”

“I reduced the size of the squares to create a mat for my photo. I purposely crossed over the grid borders with photo and embellishments to create interest and add whimsy.”

Stefanie Semple says, “I loved the four compartments in the sketch with their broken boundaries. For this story of my daughter and the pressure of grade 10, I only had one photo: of her, taken from behind. Since the story is told from her viewpoint, I wanted to document  it as it really was for her, without my usual sugar coating.”

“I added a pocket with a journal card to encourage her and pretty dandelion flowers to represent the temporary nature of these school pressures and struggles. Her school days are divided into home, school, homework and recreation. So the 4 blocks were perfect for that too.”
