Hello, everyone! Chantal here, with the Standouts of Saturday 18 October. The weather is really great here in the Netherlands. Normally it’s much colder! Today I was very busy with designing and with looking into the galleries. And again there were so many great layouts! It was sooooo hard to choose!

Here are my Standouts for today:

My first pick is A big champion from Timounette. I saw this one immediately! It’s a real Standout! I love the colors and that she clipped the photo at the wordart. The extinction is so beautifully done and the dispersion effect is stunning! She didn’t use extra or “useless” elements. Clean and (definitely not) simple 😉 This could be an advertisement on a billboard or in a magazine! Really, really an awesome standout!

My next one is Growth by LindyShay: I am sure that you all “know” Lindy. But do you now Lindy’s nickname? I do! She is called “the blending queen”! I agree! So, off course I love the blending of the photo in this layout. But I also like the placing of the elements and the brushes! This layout is so soft and so beautiful. And okay I have a weakness for blue LOL.

Celebrate by Mystampin (Beth): This is such a crazy layout! I know this weddingkit very well. It’s a beautiful, sweet and soft weddingkit. Beth is an artist and artists create! So she doesn’t make a layout, she creates a piece. How creative is it, that she gave that beautiful bride a creepy skeleton head? I love that surprise! So cool! This layout made me laugh, shiver and sigh!

Only those by Misslovescraps: I am Always looking forward to see Li Li’s layouts. I am a big fan her. In every layout she makes, you can feel the emotions. I like that very much. I love the colors of this layout. Look how she used that butterfly! It’s so beautiful that when the girl reaches the top of the stairs, she will find those words… I am sure that Li Li does the same. She goes up the stairs every layout. Because when you want to make art you shouldn’t be afraid. She is brave!

Laugh lots be crazy from Anneofalano: I love the black and white with the touch of orange and red. I adore the vertical design in combination with the horizontal wordart. This looks like a very simple layout. Well I think that the simple looking ones, are the most difficult to make!

The last one is I am many things I am a woman by Debby Todd. I HAVE to look at that layout. Debby only used a photo and an overlay. I love the vertical effect and that it looks like the leaves are a bit unfocussed. Or am I drinking too much? LOL. It’s magical!

Have a nice weekend!
