Hello, and welcome to the last day of the four-day weekend in the United States. Thanksgiving is a time for reflection and gratitude, and that is just what I felt when looking through the galleries for today’s picks. It’s wonderful to be part of such a terrific community of talented, creative people! I just loved what I found for today’s post, and I hope you do too.
This is Liz J., and these are my picks.
I SO love a good hybrid project! This is a wonderful combination of an All About Me style-composition, and a fun real-life planner. The quirky combination of journal cards pasted (literally!) into the planner make a fun read. I like the idea of the monthly selfie page; that would be fun to look back on later as a reminder of your style that month. I also like the coloring she included to fill in some of the blank space on the pages. And, I appreciated the presentation, including the markers, scissors and glue in the photo. This made me happy.
This totally made me smile! That little face peeking out behind her self-made goggles, is just the cutest! I love this design, too. I am always amazing at how a little angle in a design can completely transform the look of a page. The pretty strips of accent papers in different sizes and combinations with the large journal tags all work nicely to mat that adorable photo. The stitched circle made a nice frame for the word bits. I love the sentiment and the feel of this one!
Being a card-maker myself, I am quickly drawn to beautifully crafted projects. I enjoyed reading the process in the description that it was die-cut and colored. This is so pretty! I love the pearl accented swirly bits. Just lovely! I know the recipient will really appreciate the love and work that went into creating this.
I thought it was rather clever of this artist to showcase all of the calendar pages she created in the form of a layout! This way she can preserve the entire calendar past its year, and look back at the entire set of calendar pages as one. I like that she used art and other layouts to create the backdrops for each calendar page too. That must have been fun to create!
There is nothing better than a good list to get memories preserved on a scrapbook page! That little turkey costume was a show-stopper for me, and I had to take a closer look then! Love the list, love the left-hand weight of the page, and that giant circular word art was just the perfect way to balance the page. Super cute. I had to include one Thanksgiving tribute in today’s post, and this was my favorite!
Uly is one of my favorite scrapbookers! She has lots of variety in her pages! There were actually a couple of other pages I could have easily chosen of her recent work. This one just tugged at my heart-strings, with the giant heart outlining the little team-mates working together to cross the sand towing their wagon. I love how the photo is blended with paper and the grid pattern, and the sea-fronds edging the page are a nice touch. Such a sweet feel to this one!
I loved each of today’s picks so much, and I hope you did too! Please click on the linked title to leave our creative friends some well-deserved love. Have a great week!
