Happy New Year everyone! I love fresh beginnings with all kinds of hopes, dreams and possibilities. I also love starting with fresh new ideas and inspiration for “digiscrapping” our lives and memories. I’m delighted to be back in the galleries and to share with you my first picks of 2017. Enjoy!

What a great way to Ring in the New Year by DivaMom96! These 2 sisters are definitely having a great time celebrating together! Those 2017 glasses are so festive and fun.  Everything on this page screams sparkles, shimmers and glitz and I just love it all! The background is a beautifully blended and all of the glows bring it to life. Great title too. Glamorous standout!

I love the message in this title and journaling-Exits and Entrances by musicmom3. Seems very fitting for the new year. The blended photo in the background is a wonderful compliment to the framed focal photo. The colors are gorgeous and the layers are chalk full of textures, brushes and even a wise, little owl. Fabulous standout!

Who doesn’t love children’s art work? I adore this layout, Little Artist by mrivas, highlighting her son’s darling drawings! I’m pretty sure this will be added into his baby album. The white brick background provides a nice canvas and the black and white accents are perfect here. It makes the photos really pop. The little string and series of 3 buttons all work together to help draw the eye in. Great title word art too! Artsy standout!

Take a look at this fabulous page, Dress-up by zwyck. Any photo taken from behind creates a wonderful visual interest. I think the edits and textures on this one is super! The use of white space is brilliant along with the text path that connects the focal point to the cute element across the page. I adore the little red tag, balloons and hearts that complete this page. Beautiful standout!

Here’s another beautiful new beginnings page. Anew by alannabanana is a gorgeous, non-traditional wedding page! Lots of paint layers and brush work adorn this photo and I love the pastel colors. The little frame and clustered elements surround the new couple and they completely draw attention to this focal point. Fresh and lovely standout!

I leave you today with one of my favorite artists and fellow GSO blogger. Take a look at her page and you’ll know why. Spark something really good by Margie is a beautiful example of artistic creativity. She always knows just how to edit a photo with PS filters for special effects. I admire all of the layers, textures and brush work and how she cropped and framed this photo. The title adds to the artsy look and the overlay ties it all in. Exemplary standout!

It’s a brand new year full of possibilities! What will your dreams prove to be? Let these layouts give you a jumpstart into your own scrapping and I hope to see you in the galleries soon. Don’t forget to leave some love for these artists when you click on the links for more details. Thank you and have a fantabulous rest of the week!
