Hi there everyone! It’s Juli Fish here with some absolutely fabulous layouts that I can’t wait to feature today. I don’t know if it’s the weather or what, but the layouts in the galleries today were so amazing and offered such a wide variety of styles and looks. Let’s jump right in!!
My first pick is Coffee by xboxmom. I have to admit that I’m a huge fan of the city of Seattle and this layout totally takes me back to one of my favorite places – Pike’s Market. I really love how Kim uses the grid style to create little pieces of art to tell her story. The colors here are just perfect for a coffee layout and the photos are just gorgeous too! This is one of the things I really like about the pocket scrapbook style – it let’s you feature little masterpieces all over your page and Kim did an amazing job with this layout in doing just that!
Next up is this artsy and whimsical layout titled Decorate Your Soul by Hey Jude. The flower crown that Judy put on this illustration looks nothing short of amazing! I love how she layered it all on there. The whispy word art is so interestingly placed and really draws your attention to read the message. I love the addition of the moths and how the shadowing gives them such dimension as if they are flying above the page. This page is a piece of art I’d love to have hanging in my office!
My third choice for today is the colorful and fun layout by joelsgirl titled February Faves. The bright colors and the fun flowered paper is what caught my eye in the gallery. I really love how Kelly has used so many colors on this page. All these photos show what a fun time her family has had in February. The flowers tucked in behind the photos give a great dimension. I just adore pages like this and think they are so fun to look back at over time.
My next layout choice is On the Edge by connieg. I swear this is a vacation on a scrapbook page. What an incredible photo! I just love all the strips over the left side of the photo and what a cool effect this gives to the layout. I also love the simplicity here. The little bit of frame and words are the perfect additions to make this feel like a professional ad. I think I’m going to have to try this technique on travel photos myself!
Up next is this lovely layout titled Cherish by LorieM. At first glance this layout might seem simple, but actually it’s not. The way the elements and flowers are layered under and over the photo is so unique! I really love the mix of shadowed and painted images. The black and white photo pops off the soft colors on the page and the contrast in the photo itself is just fabulous! Finally the little bit of edging around the page gives this all the perfect finished look. Such a gorgeous page!!
My last choice today is Currently Reading by ErinShannon. Can I just start with Wow? I mean seriously! This page is so fun and I just love what she’s done here. Not may people would be so bold to put that background paper on the whole page, but it totally sets the page for the story. Then the addition of the hexagons and all the little elements just makes this whole thing fabulous. I keep finding more to look at each time I look at the page – there are so many fun details. What a bold and fun and amazing page!
I hope you enjoyed the variety in the layouts I chose today. If you have some time go surf the galleries yourself because there are some mega amazing pages out there right now!! Happy scrapping everyone!!
