I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and got to relax, eat a lot and spend time with your loved ones. Hubby and I were lucky enough to spend it with friends and it was amazing. Did you do some Black Friday damage yet? I know I did and my wallet will need a little lie-down LOL.
Sokee – G58
I love Barbara’s work and this is just such a beautiful page. I love everything about it, the circle framing of the photograph using elements mainly and not a frame is just so very creative. I love the flow across the page, anchoring all the elements with the banner, the stitching, and the paint.
Cinna – Merry and Bright
This is such a lovely Christmas / Holiday page. I love that the background feels like Christmas jammies! Cinna’s clusters are wonderful, packed with gorgeous elements, I love the little Santa and the Reindeer poking out and the scattered baubles and stars throughout the page. I am a big fan of offset framing, it really can make a page so interesting and gives you a great place to tuck little extra details in. A really wonderful happy page, the photos are so perfect in the rounded shape, matching the baubles added throughout.
AlinaLove – Merry Moments
I am just in love with the colour palette here, so non-traditional and I am a big fan of that. The word art made me smile, a perfect match for the fun photo. Her shadow work is amazing, really making all the elements come alive on the page and as I am a sucker for a bow, I love that big bow front and centre. The little bit of blended paint is lovely and anchors everything… I like an anchored page!
Laura O Donnell – 2022 Scrap goals
I am so happy that Laura came back to scrapbooking just as I am getting bedded in. I find her clean crisp style very inspiring. I love this monochrome page with just two teeny tiny pops of colour. Her use of a textured background paper makes it feel like there is more colour in the page than there actually is. The frame and Laura’s use of it are a thing of beauty and why haven’t I ever thought of doing this before? Now I am itching to try it out! I also really love her journaling – we all need to remember to have fun when scrapping.
Christellevandyk – Sunday School Crafts
How cute is she in her Peppa Pig mask!! Love the photos of her proudly holding her crafts. I love the colour palette here and the way that Christelle has used the template, all the scattered hearts and that wonderful cluster, with so many little flowers and elements in it! The subtle paint/texture on the panel really helps lift it off of the background paper and is that a rainbow tucked in?! So creative, I love unexpected hidden treasures in layouts.
Vrielinkie – Capture The Journey
I really love seeing pocket pages or at least pages like this one that use multiple photos and journal cards so well. I love the colour palette here – perfect for the photos, adding a subtle amount of colour. The photos make me so happy, bundled up walking on a beach is one of my fave places to be and their Dog looks so happy racing around. I especially love the way that she has blended ‘Life’ into the sand, so very very clever.
That’s all for me today, I do hope you will go and show these talented scrappers some love and spend some time browsing through the galleries. I haven’t done enough of that recently, work has been kicking my behind a bit! I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and I will see you in December!! How did that get here so fast?
