Hey y’all! Heidi Nicole here again, bringing you some inspiration from Digital Scrapbook Day. I don’t know about you, but I want to thank ALL the stores, galleries, artists, designers, moderators, and creative teams for making DSD such a fun event for all of us. I don’t think we all realize how much it takes to coordinate all the sales, challenges, and games in each forum. It’s such a fun time to come together as a creative community and enjoy all the stuff… and I know each one of us appreciates it!
Let’s get to it!
September Home Projects by Laura ODonnell
Okay, so if you know me at all, you know I’m an absolute fangirl of white space layouts… and I’m totally fangirling over this one! All the clean lines, minimal elements, and oh the symmetry! I especially adore the worn edges, just a little detail like that can add so much to a layout… and she just plain rocks it out in this one!
I know, I know… two white spaces in a row… but, look how different the same style can be! The first thing that grabbed my attention with this piece was the title. It’s big and bold and beautiful. The sweet little floral clusters book end the title, which adds even more interest and depth. I love that the journaling is in two different blocks. The sweet butterfly and ribbon and key soften the clean lines of the papers. Just a lovely layout!
Amber totally rocked this autumn piece out! First of all, as autumn is my favorite season, I’m partial to all the goodies featured in her photos. The beautiful crowning glory of this layout are those amazing flowers and leaves and clusters! I mean, look at them all. They are not only clustered perfectly, but they are also shadowed perfectly. She does autumn justice in this beauty!
Can you guess what caught my eye in this one? LOOK at that FACE! What an absolute cutey! I love the joy this conveys… can you feel it? Now, the extraction is out of this world, it adds so much interest and awe. The sweet circle stamps balance out the layout, and all the fun ink and paint lend to it’s joy. This literally makes me warm and fuzzy!
This is a piece of art that evokes a considerable amount of emotion. So many of us have been affected in one way or another by breast cancer. I am breathing a sigh of relief for her that all her tests are coming back negative. But, a piece like this can really touch our lives. This is the kind of art that just breathes emotion, and I am just loving it. Of course, the layout itself is stunning, but the subject is really what means so much here. I appreciate all the artistic touches, the plastic sleeves that hold all of those beautiful layers, and the lovely balance of the layout. Thank you so much for sharing such a personal layout, SweetChar.

Last but obviously not least… my girl Heather hit it out of the park with this cheery and fun layout! I absolutely adore all those bright colors with the bright white background. The mix of paper-like elements and those sweet clusters brings the entire layout together…. and of course, the shadowing is spot on! She brings it every time, folks!
That’s it for tonight… but I urge you to go look through the galleries. They are absolutely brimming with beauty and inspiration. Don’t forget to go to each of these layouts and leave some love! Happy October, y’all!
