Simply Playful Accents

Several weeks ago I scrolled through all the materials in the old BPC self-paced class called Simply Playful Accents where Angie Gutshall shares tips for adding simple embellishments to enhance and change the look of layouts. There were some great tips for adding little elements to complete pages. I enjoyed the materials and ended up scraplifting two of the layout designs for stories that will go in our 2011 albums.

This first layout has several pieces of memorabilia along with miscellaneous embellishments and a funny story.

Wrapping twine around the journaling card was one of the ideas I really liked on the layout I was copying.

My favorite part of the layout I scraplifted next was the punched border underneath the photos.

I used a cardstock background and some really old papers for this layout and absolutely love the way it turned out with these cute photos of my great-nephew. Journaling reads: After many, many trys, Andrew finally connected foot with ball!

Have you reviewed any of the classes in your BPC account lately?


  1. Oh those photos of Andrew made me smile. I like the use of the edged mats and photo border.

    I'm planning on working through some of my classes over at BPC (and others) and deciding if I'll get rid of those I won't use again.

  2. I still have to review all of my BPC classes ... gulp!
    Lovely layouts.

  3. The twine is a great addition but I also like your broad arrows with the red accent too.

  4. Love the bright colors in these layouts! I still have classes I need to start at BPC, to say nothing of reviewing!

  5. These are two great layouts! I only have two classes at BPC and I am ashamed to say I haven't even started either of them!

  6. I love all the little touches including that yellow road sign and the negative piece from your punches. I'm going to jot down the baker's twine idea!

  7. I really should review my classes at BPC. Those little extra touches really add so much to a layout.

  8. I really do. We'd to review my classes, looks like you've got some great tips from your class

  9. Love both of those layouts! The one with the map for a background is great and I really love the purple one!
