It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere I go! Are you singing with me yet? Can you believe Christmas is two weeks from today? Wow! I have finished my shopping, wrapped all the gifts and have been trying to keep up with my Days of December album. I made Christmas cards today and then took a nice, long break and treated myself to the gorgeous galleries. Here are my picks for today. I hope you like them and feel inspired to create your own standouts.
This layout is absolutely stunning! I love the wintry feel of the snowy background and the fence, which must be calling “me” home. Ana’s blending is always fabulous and this is no exception! The ornaments are gorgeous and I love the bokeh effects behind them.
This layout has so much charm to it! I love that big snowman and the stitched Christmas tree with the star on top! The vintage black and white photo, repeated across the page, tells the story of a snowman built many years ago. It was fun to read who all was in the photo and where it was taken. The gray background is perfect and compliments the photo and the snowman.
This is such a lovely Christmas page! The muted patterned papers and the sepia toned photos give it such a warm and cozy vintage feel. I love the flower clusters with the ice skates…so cute! The curved title, paper strips and banner really add interest to the page and I love how she framed every inch with the dotted background paper. Looks like a wonderful country Christmas!
This layout is gorgeous! Brenda is a master of layering and just take a look and you’ll see what I mean. Frosty is just adorable and the Christmas plaid papers in the filmstrips are beautiful. There are clusters around the focal point and there are edgers at both the top and the bottom of this page. Really outstanding!
Doesn’t this layout just make you smile? This little girl and all of these photos are adorable! I bet we’ve all seen little kids put on sunglasses in just this fashion-upside down-and it’s always good for a laugh or two. I love the bright colors and all of the tropical elements scattered around! Darling page!
My final pick tonight is this gem: Just Dance by CindyB
This layout is full of energy and movement! I love the stitched photos at the top and the adorning music notes! That alone could have been a layout in its own right. But take a look at the bottom half of this page. The photo of all the dancers in this competition is amazing and the blending is fabulous! The title work and the glitter, along with everything else here, truly makes this a dynamic piece!
Well, that’s a wrap for tonight. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and that you might take a moment to leave some love for these artists! The links make it ezpz!
