Layout Inspiration by Beatrice: This is Me April

April 9, 2018

Good morning. Monday is here which means I’m bringing you inspirational layouts using This Is Me April, the newest chapter in SnickerdoodleDesigns’ continuing This Is Me series.

I really like that all the kits in the series coordinate and are easy to mix and match even if you typically scrap with a single kit. It’s simple to create beautiful layouts using the gorgeous papers and embellishments in this month’s kit. As a result, I had a very difficult time choosing just five layouts this week to show you here. 

I’ll begin with this layout by Glori. Her pages always have such attention to detail and this one is no exception. She used the mask found in the kit so effectively on the adorable photo of the chick. I really like the way she combined the sketchy leaves with the realistic flowers. The kit paper she chose with the cracked egg is perfect for her newly hatched chick. Her recolor and blend on the floral stamp is lovely and merges seamlessly with the paper. I like the tied border across the top and the pop of the yellow butterflies cascading down the page. I love the peeking chick and the bunny at the bottom of the page gazing up at the scene.

You may have had a peek at this layout in the blog post showing Rochelle’s progress in her quest for healthy habits here. I’m so impressed by her story and her willingness to share it openly. I really like the way she masked the paper and added the photo on top. Her cluster is so pretty and her shadows realistic. By right justifying her journaling, it fits perfectly at the edge of the page. The word bit she chose is just right for her theme. Congratulations to Rochelle. You must be so proud.

I admit I’m making an effort to show you some layouts featuring the creator herself like this one from Norma. I like the masked photo and the way she placed the lace at an angle down the side. The two framed photos combined with the masked photo add up to an outstanding design. Her clusters are gorgeous and I like the way she repeated them in triangular formation to guide the eye down the page. Her word art and journaling are placed just right in an empty spot on the layout.

I wanted to show you at least one layout using the out of bounds frame found in the kit. Kathryn makes this technique look so easy by masking her photo and combining it with the frame. I like the way she tied the bouquet with the swirly string bow. She effectively recolored the stamp using several different colors. The swirling ribbons behind the photo and elements add interest and the bible verse she chose fits her theme perfectly.

I’d look for every opportunity to show off the papers in this kit and Joanna does it effortlessly by repeating the paper-filled diamonds in her layout. She used a sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy and made those papers shine. They are an excellent backdrop for her photo and the journal card she chose is ideal for her photo. I like the horizontal cluster she created with the flowers and string and the barely visible hearts she stamped on her background paper are a skilled final touch.

I’ve come to the end of my post today. I hope I have inspired you to find the time to create some pages for yourself. Thanks and have a great week.
