Branching out - Think outside the theme with Trees Remix.

Branching out - Think outside the theme with Trees Remix.

Karen Wyngaard Karen Wyngaard

Have you picked up the Trees Remix collection yet? The color palette and artwork are a no-brainer for photos of any outdoor location or occasion - but I challenged myself to really "branch out" this time. Instead, I chose to concentrate on color when selecting my photos - after all, I should really practice what I preach, don't you think?

Trees Remix Page Kit

Six of the eight layouts feature photos taken during the Great Lakes Mega Meet in Novi, Michigan, early this month. Four amazing friends chose to spend the week with me and Tricia working the show. Everyone worked really hard, but this group of ladies also knows how to have fun, too!

Layout 1 & 2

Trees Remix Layout 1 & 2

See how well the colors in the photos coordinate with the Trees color palette? Amazing!

Have more photos than mats? Crop a photo to fit the open space in the lower right corner of the page. The 8x8 grid ruler is perfect for this task. Not sure what I mean? Watch Tricia's Rulers 101 tutorial on Club Scrap's YouTube Channel to learn more.

Layout 3 & 4

The green draping used on the expo show floor at Mega Meet was a nearly-perfect match for the light green included in the kit. I customized the layout by skipping the cutapart sentiment on the left page...

...and repurposing the cutapart on the right as a photo mat.

Layout 5 & 6

One 1.75x2 Brown from Layout 4 is relocated to Layout 5, creating a home for a small photo left of the two vertical mats.

Repurpose the tree cutapart in the lower right corner as a mat for yet another photo.

Layout 7 & 8

The final two pages are perfect "as is" for Dad's photographs of the Great Horned Owl family in our local park. The owlets are getting so big! If you love amateur nature photography, you might want to check out Dad's Facebook page, Michael's Walkabout.

In lieu of two smaller photos, trim a vertical photo to span the two mats on the right page.


And there you have it - eight more pages ready for the scrapbook. Not bad considering all of the above photos were taken during the first week of May!

I look forward to seeing your pages and projects featuring the Trees Remix collection. Be sure to share your work on the Club Scrap Chat Facebook group. Hope to "see" you there!
