Good Morning and happy Monday. I’m scratching my head and saying how can it already be August? Despite of staying home (mostly) the summer is racing by. I hope you are all well and can enjoy some inspiration. It’s Beatrice on the blog and here are my picks for today.

Running at the Cabin by digigrandma

The horizontal flow of this page is just lovely. I like the way the title and journaling are placed perpendicular to the photo and paper stacking. The way the artist used the frames to highlight the embellishments is very creative. The bits of tied string are a great added touch.

Call me just another blogger that loves a pet page. The large photo and sweet journaling are what made this layout jump out for me. The themed embellishments and big title letters are the ideal size for the page design. The circle pieces of patterned paper are the perfect foundation for the embellishments.

I’m not certain if this photo has been edited or if it’s straight out of the camera but regardless it’s amazing. I love the silhouettes and the bits of color I assume are reflections of the water. The split page design and use of the black paper make the photo pop even more. The title is very clever and supported by the story told by the artist.

This is such a beautiful white space page. The photo is adorable and converting it to black and white makes it fit with the colors and style of the page. The shadowing on the papers and photo is very realistic and adding the paper strips at the bottom edge of the page to create a border is unique.

Nautical Memories by lencik_vredniy

My goodness- you can feel the joy in this photo series. The style of the layout keeps the focus there. I like the bits of paint at the edges of the page and rotating the title is highly effective. The bits of netting and shells are the only embellishments needed to finish off the page exactly right.


August Passport Challenge #13 by JillW

This photo-less page is dramatic in both design and sentiment. I like the combination of neutrals with the bits of blue and the hand-drawn with the realistic embellishments. Everything about this page meshes flawlessly. The journaling was a great read and I think it’s important to capture things about this time in order to look back and remember. The combination of fonts is perfect for the title-work.


I notice that while I never really follow a theme, I was attracted to neutrals today. I hope you have a chance to click through the links and leave these well deserving artists some love. Thanks for reading along and I hope you have a safe and creative week.
