Hello and happy Sunday! Today we have six wonderful, thought-provoking, feel-good, feel-contemplative, feel-scrappy great pages for you to admire. I think you will really like today’s picks. Let’s take a look!

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

Date Night by spcoggs

What a great design! I love the way she incorporated the text around the word art. This is a terrific use of white space. The narrow word strip running along the bottom, and the cross-stitches across the top give it nice boundaries. Love that pop of light aqua in the heart flair to break up the monotone. The XOXO element is a great background behind the nice date-night photo. Plus, it’s a great story of love and marriage and a supportive family! Love that.

I admit I’m a little biased about all things grandmother. Isn’t this the cutest?! I love the placement of the photo, and how all of the elements flow from that not-in-the-center spot. The whimsical drawn hearts and stitching combine in a fun way with the torn paper and pretty florals. I like that script text paper as background. All around a lovely design. And, of course, the best part is the love radiating off this page. Go Grammy!

2017 First day of school in Alaska by easyeyes4you

The thing I like best about this page is that the way she incorporated the inset photos with the large, similar background photo, gave an initial optical illusion of the inset photos being part of the background, as if they were repeated in the main photo. I love the artist touches with the paint brush, dripped paint and painted kid on the scooter. Great title work too. This is a fun way to celebrate the first day of school.

The title of this one caught my attention, along with the gold background. It’s a great, simple design with a simple statement. I’m thinking this was just something she had to say out loud, to help keep her on track while she finishes the year and decides what’s coming next in life. I really like this about scrapbooking, that we share with one another our goals and aspirations, our frustrations and joys, and it’s a safe way to vent sometimes, too. Love the off-kilter framing on top of the three different colored paper strips.

I love this one SO much! Of course, that color scheme of red, white and black is quite striking, so it got my attention right away. I really love AAM pages like this one: quick, to the point, no nonsense, no fluff, just the facts, ma’am. Love those cute little whimsical journal cards that she used to tell us what she’s up to right now. The little bracket with the oops-I-missed-let-me-stamp-it-again date stamp(s) on the left is a super cute touch. The torn paper made a nice variation in an otherwise graphic-look page, and completely changed up the look. The folded heart is a fun detail. Love the quilted background paper. Great page.

Remembering Foxy by Christine Irion

And, to round out the wonderful feel-good pages of the day, naturally, we have a terrific dog page! Christine is an amazingly talented scrapper, so I was not surprised to find this wonderful doggie-tribute page in the gallery. I love the big word art brush she used on the white space in the photo! Great border work to ground the page, wonderful repeat word art, and the sentiment made me catch my breath. The whimsical dog elements are a fun touch.

That’s it for me for this Sunday! I hope you all love today’s picks too. If so, please click on the linked title and leave the scrapbook artist some well-earned praise! Have a great week!

  1. Thanks for featuring my Date Night layout! Your words were so sweet. I’m not sure I’ve ever used that template before and it really was perfect for our quick selfie. 🙂 Loving your other pics too – such stunning work by all!

  2. Thanks for the shout out! And yes it was something I had to say out loud! Sometimes I’m just fed up with life and scrapping about it is cathartic!
    Thanks again!
