Welcome to a Special Edition Post-iNSD Gallery Standouts! If you are like me, you had loads of fun playing forum games and challenges! And now the wait is on, “Did I win something?” LOL! ‘Cause let’s be honest, it is fun to win! If you are also like me, you took advantage of the shop sales and all the goodies the designers crafted for National Scrapbooking Day! And now you may be wondering, what do I do with all these kits? Ha, ha! So here is a pop of inspiration that may help you craft your next work of scrapbooking art!
Best Mom by LoveItScrapIt
WOW! This page design is spectacular with the hint of rainbow from the half-circle shapes. And the soft, warm color palette is oh-so-beautiful!!
Disneyland Cover by Keepscrappin
This clean and simply layout is all sorts of exciting with the bold color palette and vertical alignment of papers and elements. The photo stands out with its diamond shape and contrasting horizontal alignment.
This Crazy Life by Hillary
Spectacular blending! The yellow and green pop from the monochromatic background. But the photo takes center stage with the cleverly crafted framing and positioning of elements.
Wild & Carefree by Christellevandyk
This layout is so fun with the wild and carefree photo! The wreath of flowers and elements is exquisite and beautiful!
African Safari by Texaschey
I adore the word art and titling in this one! The photo is perfectly framed, and the map background is perfection!
Full of Life by LisaMT
I want to scrap-lift this page! The split paper design adds such wonderful visual interest, and that center cluster is well crafted. I also like the mix of muted, yet rich tones that match the photos splendidly.
Kicker by Clucaswvu04
There is great use of “white space” in this layout. But it does not have a white space feel because of the bold blue! That white space helps us see the arty stamps and ink splatters which help tell the visual story a football game in action!
Blue Butterfly by Nia
Simplicity at its finest. This work of art is a breath of fresh air.
Not My Circus by *silvia*
I simply could not overlook this marvel by Silvia. There is all sorts of WOW-POWER here from the shadowing to the extracted sky-diver. And the word art “Not my circus, not my monkeys” is the icing on the cake!
Born To Be Wild 02 by Tinke
What a wonderful work of art. I can see this framed and hanging in a child’s room. The animals are cute and whimsical, and the partially out-of-bounds tiger is spot on!
Now We Are Four by AZK
This layout has it all. The clusters in the corners are excellently crafted and get the eyes bouncing from one corner to the next. The photos are lovely, especially the last family photo of the five sisters together blended into the background. This layout is incredibly heartfelt and a bit sad, but the use of yellow (a happy color) and the smiling faces present a layout that is at first merry – until the full story unwinds. This is truly spectacular visual storytelling.
P52 Week 19 Eyes by Grace
I end today’s picks with a positive message and incredibly lovely work of art. The earth tones make my heart sing and I love the little brushes in the corners too – the leaves and the circles. The galleries are popping with all sorts of beautiful layouts, and this one is no exception.
So here is to a fabulous post-iNSD week! I look forward to seeing how you use all your scrapbooking goodies!
Till next time,
