National Day Parade 2011



NDP2011

My country recently celebrated her 46th year of independence and we got tickets to attend the National Day Parade...all decked out in red! :)

I enjoyed making this layout...using bits and pieces from various brands. The way I like to scrapbook. Recently I've been sticking to about 80% of a single brand on my projects so that I can share on manufacturers' gallery/facebook pages. I do mix lines within a brand though...just so I can exercise a little more creativity. Do you like mixing brands or just sticking to one brand at a time?

NDP2011 supplies list

Supplies: Patterned papers from Echo Park Paper, Scenic Route Paper, Studio Calico, My Mind's Eye and My Little Shoebox, 7 Gypsies tab, Making Memories brads and photo turn, The Twinery twine, American Crafts thickers, Sam and Lucy stickers, SRM stickers, Martha Stewart edge punch, metal bookplate, wrinkle ribbon.

P/s: Have a fabulous weekend friends! Come play along with my guest Erum's ribbon flower challenge! :)

I love mixing brands - I think sometimes I do that to challenge myself because when I'm in a hurry or just want to make a card / l.o. for the sake of making a card, I use the same items on a line.

Amazing page. Love all the details! Happy independence day, Singapore!!

Lea said...

What a great multi-photo layout! I love how you framed it out with the twine.

sherryann (aka Sherry Eckblad) said...

another great layout! I tend to use all the same papers. Don't think I am brave enough to mix them yet.

Audrey Pettit said...

Wow! This is SO awesome, Yvonne! What amazing detail! Love the photo arrangement, too. And that road with the cars just makes me smile. :)

I love parades. This is so fun! I like mixing brands since I like variety on a page. I'm trying to learn to scrap using the same manufacturer. It gets hard for me sometimes. :)

sandi said...

Wow! What an awesome lo! Love how you were able to put together so many little things to come up with one fantastic page. And all those pics...they look wonderful...that is not easy to pull off! Fab!

Casey Wright said...

What a great layout! I love all of the details!

Spardha said...

WOW!.. awesome LO!.. love all the RED!.. and the twine border looks just too awesome! :D

Sue Althouse said...

That is an amazing mix! I go back and forth, something sticking with one line, sometimes pulling stash from all over the place. I like the variety!

Julie E said...

Amazing!!! I usually stick to one brand since it makes all the matching easier :>)

Amy said...

I always love your layouts!! This one has a whole store on it! LOL :) Love the way you mixed so many brands!

lynn said...

fabulous page, yvonne! i love to mix and match--it no fun with just one:)

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Awesome layout, I miss those red + white!!!
I do love to mix and match, just to push myself out of the comfort zone a little.

Helen Tilbury said...

Wow Yvonne this is a stunner! You need to sub this somewhere...like CK - they love multi-photo!! If I were scrapbooking just for me it would be a total mix but like you I scrap mainly a brand at a time so that if there's a contest or call I have what I need to sub...

Alice Wertz said...

such a fun layout and love the details as always! hope you have a lovely weekend!

Chantal Vandenberg said...

Love your multi-photo layout! I'm definately a mixer too!

Sparkle said...

Such a lovely layout!

Jocelyn Olson said...

Love this LO, Yvonne! I really like how you mixed the papers and yet they all work so well together. I prefer to mix my papers/brands--like the eclectic look.

Theresa said...

fabulous mixing of lines. such a fun layout.

I like to do a little of both. I really love mixing it, but sometimes I really enjoy sticking to one line and using all the matching items. the beauty of scrapbooking. anything goes, right???
=)
