Good evening, my friends!  I hope this finds you all well and enjoying all the good things in your life.  It’s so good for the soul to remember what we are thankful for on a daily basis, and I’m continually thankful for our little creative community.  It’s inspiring and thoughtful and brings me so much joy… and spending time in the galleries makes me smile.  We can all use a little more of that in our lives… so let me show you what I’ve picked today!

Travel List by LynnZant

As we come upon the summer months here in the states, a lot of us start thinking about traveling and vacations.  This bright, fun, and beautiful layout is the perfect way to document this travel bucket list!  I love all the tabs cascading down the page that showcases the location and a description.  The coordinating tabs and photos adds so much interest… and those clusters!  I love all the things here!

sunkissed by Chigirl

This beauty is another fun summer themed layout… that background is so amazing!  I love the patterned sunburst cutout over the white background.  The shadowing is spot on!  I love the use of the journal cards, and the sweet little details like the sun.  Everything coordinates so beautifully with that sunkissed photo.  Fun in the sun!

us by Annemiekkok

LOVE!  The perspective of this photo is the very first thing I noticed… it’s the focal point, and it’s gorgeous.  The way she stacked the papers and elements with those realistic shadows make a very paper like feel.  The journaling and title complete the page in a grungy, yet super sweet way.  The whole vibe here is amazing… and the sentiment is perfect.  #choosejoy

Remember… All the Dreams by amyjcaz

This layout is grungy, art journaling GOLD.  All of the stacked paper strips and ephemera behind that super sweet photo come together to create such a cool affect.  Not only that, but the added stamps and paint splatters adds depth and interest.  Choosing to have the photo clipped to a circle, and then a coordinating circle element tucked into the layers, adds balance.  All in all, such a well put together art journaling page!

Pirate King by JoCee

Oh my goodness!  This is such a fantastic pirate page!  I absolutely love the fun layers… all of the elements that are clustered and layered are beautifully shadowed.  Those leaves are an amazing design choice and they add so much to the balance of the page.  There is nothing I don’t love about this page and the fantasy feel she’s created.

selfie fun by silent ranks

First things first… those selfies and super awesome!  I’m a big fan of selfies, and I love how she created this page using four different photos… these memories are so fun to document!  I love the design of the page.  The paper layers across the top are beautifully shadowed, and those flag buntings add such a wonderfully whimsical feel to the page.  The colors are gorgeous and the neutral wood background balances the bright colors.  Love it all!


As always, I hope these pages inspire you.  I hope they spark that creative feeling in you that makes you feel joy.  I hope they make you smile.  Don’t forget to go leave some love on these lovely pages… and have a wonderful evening, friends!
