Hi everyone and happy Sunday to you all!
I hope you have had a great weekend and if the weather is good where you are have managed to get some vitamin d alongside your scrapping time!
Txcorey – Flower Girl (right)
I have never done this before – featured a double page layout – but this is so unbelievably gorgeous I had to! I love absolutely everything about it. The stunning photographs, the beautiful colour palette that suits Hallie’s outfit, the clusters are gorgeous and so full and perfectly shadowed. If you look carefully, there are layered papers all throughout the pages, just amazing work and I love it.
Marnel – By The Seashore
I love Marnel’s pages, they are always amazing and this one is no exception. I love the sea-themed kit that she has used, with that fabulous cutout/template and the happy photo of her just completes it. The ring of words is inspired and I need to remember that! I can’t stop looking at the amazing cluster, full of seashore-related items, just perfect and makes me want to hit the beach!
I love the title, such a creative way of honoring someone special in your life. The photo is super cute and because it is b&w it makes the wonderful butterflies pop! I love the butterflies, they are so unexpected here and work so well. Gorgeous page.
Amien1 – Nap all day
I LOL at the journaling here. Cooper really is a cutie pie when he is sleeping. I love the composition of this page, the wonderful paper strips down the side, and the stacked, layered elements creating loose clusters. The photo is gorgeous and the colour palette works really well with all the elements, I love big photo pages especially when they are so beautifully adorned like this one.
Nia – Kolloseum
Sometimes clean white space is what you need to make the subject shine. This is a really wonderful example of that. The thing for me that makes this so wonderful, is the shadow work on the photo, the little bit of texture at the bottom of the page and the fold/tear in the middle. All great details, that enhance the image and don’t detract from it. CAS at it’s finest.
Rachel Jefferies – Carreg Cennen Castle
As most of you know Rachel is a designer of some of the most beautiful kits out there. And here at GSO we try not to ‘promote kits’ etc, but every now and then when a designer scraps I can’t resist featuring them! And let’s face it, they are scrappers too! I love the flow of this page by Rachel, it is stunning, it is leading the eye to the pretty photo at the end of that trail and I love it. I am a big fan of threads and twine and they are used so well here. I really love the colour palette Rachel has chosen here, the orange really pops and anchors the start of that wonderful trail.
I really hope you will go and show these talented scrappers some love and that their pages inspire you to create your own beautiful pages.
Happy Scrapping until next time.
