Hello everyone! I hope you don’t think it is too late to wish you all a happy, healthy and creative New Year filled with lots of laughter!
I am here to show you the first round of gems I found in the galleries for 2014.

Oh wow-ee-wow-wow. What a fantastic explosion of brushes and colours and they totally make that black and white photo jump of the page! I just love the energy this layout radiates and the great shadowing adds a wonderful sense of depth!

How sweet and cute is this? I just want to frame this and hang it on the wall! I love the sweet colours in combination with the dramatic black and all the little knick-knacks in here like the scatters, doodles thread and stitches are so pretty!

Bekah by Cornelia

I always love the look of a wooden background but the way the paper and the wood in this stunning photo look together is simply amazing! Very clever how the 2 are almost unnoticeably seperated by a small border of patterned paper to get a smooth transition. I am also thrilled that the embellishing was kept subtle so the photo really, really takes center stage. Love the country feel!

How Sweet by Nettie B

What a fun, happy page! It immediately caught my eye in the gallery, partly because of that awesome aquarel paper but also because of the playfully placed elements, cute photos and I just love how she stuck that journal card in the page border at the bottom corner on the right! Such a cool detail.

My Cup of Tea by Scrapsandsass

I am smitten with the combination of shapes and colours in this page. I think the horizontal lines look gorgeous opposite the diagonal ones in the background paper. They brilliantly lead your eye to the square cluster [which is fabulously embellished with doodles and stamps] and that nice cup of tea. The confetti breaks all the rules and adds such great interest. Also love the little cluster with the ampersand.

Love, love, love the graphic design of this layout with the bold red dots, rectangular strips and big title. The photo treatment is also very eye catching on this great action pic of guitar legend Eddie van Halen. I can only conclude that this page rocks in more ways then one!

And with that one we’re already at the end of my picks. I hope you liked my choices and that they will inspire you in one way or another. Please leave some love in the artist’s galleries if they do okay? Everyone SO deserves it! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
