Happy Sunday all! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and got to spend some time expressing your creativity during National Scrapbooking Day yesterday. (From the looks of the galleries you certainly did!) I have not been on my computer all weekend so haven’t been able to scrap one little bit. Sad! Seeing all the beautiful layouts in the galleries now is motivating me to simply find the time so we’re all good. So, on to the important stuff … a few highlights from the galleries!
Elliot in a Tree by bluedraft52 | Whoa! That photo is absolutely stunning. It’s a perfect photo to be front and center on the page and it really doesn’t need anything else. I love the way the title is blended onto the tree trunk. The falling little leaf elements are simply genius. I also like the simple journaling on the trunk and the beautiful color of the journaling to match the colors in the leaves. Simply put … this is a STUNNING page!
You Deserve It by Jenn McCabe | I’m always a fan of Jenn’s pages when I come across them in the galleries. The first thing that caught my eye was that sketchy girl element and her title work. The “You owe it to yourself” tag completely pulled me in and made me want to read her story and hopefully get pulled into her motivation. (Pre-Covid I was super motivated … since Covid … lets just say Covid 15 is sadly a real thing. Ugh!!!) I love the way she highlighted the important words in her journaling and her AMAZING shadow work. I also like the grungy brushwork in the background. Great page … and very motivational too! 🙂
Be Inspired11_04_Dunia by Dunia | What a clean, simple and beautiful page! I love the scattering of photos and the acrylic title … and her photos are awesome! I also really like the black border around the page pulling your eyes into the story.
Doors by Hclappy | I simply HAD to highlight this page. I LOVE doors so much. I always include door pages in my vacation albums and European doors are the best. There’s always so much history and beauty. I really like the berries and leaves and and plants framing the page; they’re like vines on a house and are the perfect touch and I love that adorable bike on the text paper road. What a lovely page!
2006 Joy on the Beach by Stacia | I love pages with full page photos and this photo is absolutely adorable and completely NEEDS to be front, center and HUGE! What a little cutie! I love the clusters of elements and stickers and beach themed doo dads along the left side and the way she used the messy stitched borders. The sand and the sky were perfect for the titling and journaling. What a happy happy page!
Make Today Amazing by Tiffany Scraps | What a beautiful photo. It’s just a lovely, peaceful scene. I love her inspirational title and the beautiful flower and clock element cluster and the sun cluster peaking onto the page. This page is really quite lovely!
I hope you enjoyed the layouts I chose for you today. Always remember that there are so very many amazing layouts in the galleries to feast your eyes on. If you’re ever looking for some inspiration, visit us here at GSO or any of the galleries. Just beware … it’s easy to get lost in the creativity and before you know it hours have passed and you’ll feel you simply HAVE to scrap! 🙂 If you’ve got a moment, if you see a layout that really speaks to you, leave the artist some love in the comments. Speaking from experience … it is always a day brightener!
