Welcome to the last post of July! Sit back and enjoy, we’ve got some fun for you today!

This is Liz J., and these are my picks.

Saving Memories by shunnstergirl

We should all do a page like this one once in a while! Fabulous idea to put some of your favorite scrapbook pages on a page to showcase them! I love how the little layouts and favorite photos circle the focal photo. Great word art and embellishments scattered throughout. And the wood background made the perfect neutral backdrop. This is so adorable.

Play Soccer: Got Game? by SonjaC

I am always on the lookout for paper pages that could be made digitally, and this one just jumped out at me. This took some work to make by hand, clearly! I love that explanation Sonja provided about how her son learned his skills, and also about the process for creating this page. That’s a cool chalk look on the grass and for the signals on the grid background. Great elements tie this together in a very all-boy sports page. Loved it.

Drama-in-5 by alannabanana

If a page makes me laugh out loud I’m pretty likely to consider it a standout, and this one totally cracked me up. Love that monster background, great slanted word art, pouty photo and the general theme to this one. Who hasn’t experienced the small child time-out-provoking tantrum?! That border around the background paper is awesome, very vibrant and energetic. Very fun page that will probably make the subject laugh (later, much later!).

Young Love by JaneD

Oh my, this is so romantic, isn’t it? That textured photo printing had an amazing impact. This is another wonderful real-life paper project, and it just sang to me from the gallery. I love the combination of materials, tags and frames Jane used to house the journaling, accented with the sweet hearts. The embossed copper circle tucked in above the photos is a great touch, with that sprinkling of stars. This is just lovely.

That’s way cool! I love the combination of the waves she created behind the photo, and the bracketed framing of the horizontal photo. That subtle sky coloring adds a lovely dimension too. The patterned paper peeking through the waves is a subtle and effective use of the paper. Love the placement of the journaling. Really wonderful page!

Pardalote by esther_a

This is just delightful! I love the border work Esther incorporated top and bottom, and the shadowed banner is a great touch. Wonderful framing, and terrific extraction. The vertical design worked beautifully against the wood background. So pretty! The word art is the perfect final touch.

I hope you enjoyed today’s picks! If so, please click on the linked titles and leave the artist some well-deserved praise! Have a great week as we head into August!
