Looking Back by Beatrice – Bucket List Collection
Do you have a favorite Collection, one that you use over and over? If not, it’s time to look through your supplies and find one. Today’s post Layout Inspiration Post features one of my favorites, “Bucket List.” This is also the Look-Back Collection for the month of February, so you can enjoy special pricing at Snickerdoodle Designs, savings 40-57% on the kit, extras, and collection!
I think all of SnickerdoodleDesigns’ Collections are among my favorites. Although they have a general theme, they are versatile for multiple subjects, which allows me to use them over and over.
Today I am featuring some of my favorite “Bucket List” layouts. As always, I hope they serve to spark your creativity.
The page design of this layout by Cathy allowed her to add a number of photos without her page appearing cluttered. Tilting and stitching a few of the photos adds interest. I like the palette she chose, mainly purple with a few pops of yellow and blue. The elements she chose, the bug, butterfly, and arrow complement her theme perfectly.
This layout by Chrissy grabbed my attention immediately. I can honestly say that stroking a tiger would probably not be on my bucket list; but it is, I am certain, an extraordinary experience. Keeping the photo large and masking it with the torn paper makes it the focal point of the layout. I like the way Chrissy used the filmstrip frame to back one of her vertical clusters. The saying on the journal card is perfect for her topic, and the fonts she chose for her title work so well together.
The split, elongated framing in this layout by Kythe is very creative and emphasizes the size of the ship. The tilted lace and paper piece lead the eye across the page. I like the way she added the sketchy elements like the black stems and yellow flowers and stapled them to the page. The bow and globe complete her layout flawlessly. August is almost upon us!
Apparently visiting Australia is a repeat item and found on many bucket lists, as in this layout by Norma. The two photos she featured represent the country perfectly; and the whimsical font she chose for her title works very well on the page. The blended background paper with a subtle text overlay is included in the collection and works to highlight the photos and elements. Weaving the cluster in and out helps us to take in the entire page.
I think this Collection is also well suited to a photoless layout as demonstrated in this page by Joanna. I like the way she kept most of the elements to the left of the page. The background reminds me of water and is the perfect foundation for the map paper. The cluster cascades vertically down the page and supports both the journal card and impressive bucket list.
The masking of the large photo in this layout by Yobeth, really emphasizes the perspective of the image. Combining it with the strip of smaller photos at the bottom of the page is very appealing to the eye. Adding the edge to blended paper gives it a unique look. I like the way she journaled on the tag and added the sketchy border at the bottom edge of the page.
I’ve really enjoyed this look back at the Bucket List Collection. While we all love to shop, it’s good (and thrifty) to use what we have too. Of course, if this is a “new to you” Collection, I know you will want to check it out. Thanks for reading along and have a creative week!
