Good afternoon, friends! As always, I hope this finds all of you safe and healthy… and if you’re in the states, you find yourself enjoying the excitement and joy leading up to Christmas. This year has presented us with so many challenges, yet we are finding new and positive ways to enjoy the season we are in. I am here wishing you the best season ever… and to bring a little creativity to your day with some Gallery Standouts!
This is a stunning page that almost sparkles when you look at it. The pine leaves coming in from the sides is absolute genius. That technique used on the large photo is absolutely gorgeous, as is the photo. The sweet poinsettia on her hat is shadowed beautifully and adds the perfect amount of depth and dimension to the piece. Just gorgeous!
This is a sweet and grungy layout, that makes me feel warm and fuzzy. That monochromatic heart in the background paper is beyond perfect. Centering her lovely photo and elements on the heart, just adds to the sweetness of the page. The photo itself is such a fun perspective of her adorable doggo. The minimalistic feel of the elements lends to the white space feel, yet the grunginess and paint splatter adds so much fun and interest. The slightly angled title is the proverbial icing on the cake! All in all, such a lovely piece!
I was really pulled to this layout because of the overall feel of the page… the dark background, slightly splattered with paint, and the perfect photo to add to the feel. It just speaks such dreamy peace to me… I hope that’s how she intended it, but I just love the feelings that surface when I look at it. The quote really is quite spot on, and I love the title above the photo. Simply gorgeous.
This Document Your December page is so awesome! The clean lines, the clear and crisp photos, and the story makes up the perfect DYD page. The mix of black and white and color photos adds so much creativity to the page. I just love everything about this and it makes me want to try to finish a DYD project! So inspirational… and those cookies look absolutely delicious, even without the sprinkles!
If you guys know me and my picks by now… I’m a sucker for white space and cats. Look what I found! A perfect white space page, featuring a super adorbs kitty cat! The vertical feel to the stacked papers and photo go so well with the horizontal monochromatic stripes in the background paper. The fun fringe and the stitching gives the page a softer feel, and the lovely touch of the sequins at the bottom complete the page. I just love it all!
This page caught my eye right away. The red background paper is bold and full of joy… but what I love the most… she made her page resemble one of the Starbucks Red Cups! Red Cup Season is a thing, and she nailed it with this page. The stripes of paper and the Christmas tree stamps look so awesome with her photo. I adore that little tassel and that fun ink stamp in the background. If you like #redcupseason – you will LOVE this page!
That’s it for today… but, don’t forget to give some love to these layouts! Stay safe and scatter joy, my friends <3
