Welcome to Monday and another inspirational post featuring SnickerdoodleDesigns’ new release collection, Christmas Memories. This collection is currently available only at The Digichick but watch for it soon at SnickerdoodleDesigns’ personal store. Christmas Memories is part of the Hatchery where each pack can be mixed and matched with packs from other designers built around the same palette. Each pack is only $2, or you can pick up the Bundle at even greater savings. The collection, of course, is the best value.
I really love all the vintage-themed elements and brushes found in the collection. As with every collection of Karen’s, you can achieve a variety of pages from this single resource. Just take a look at the samples I have to show you today.
The black background in this layout by Glori really makes the elements pop. Glori uses one of the enlarged elements within the kit to create a snow globe effect, framing her photo. I really like the way she repeated the starry circle by using the journal card in the collection. Blending the Santa into the background is a very creative technique. The scattering of gold flowers draws the eye down the layout to the gorgeous horizontal cluster she created with the flowers, greenery and berries.
I love this heritage page by msbrad. I like the way the background paper she chose almost looks like tile. The deckle-edge frame works just right for the theme of her layout. I like the painted border and the stamped house blended into the background. Her clusters are delicate and pretty and the silhouette of Santa driving his sleigh over the rooftop is the perfect finishing touch.
I love the stitched background in JennyG’s layout. (This paper comes just like this in the kit! ) Once again the black makes everything pop. I like the way she added the non-geometric paper pieces to show off the many papers in the collection. The red stitching down the side is another creative touch. The journal card is perfect for her photo. Her clusters are placed in an appealing triangular formation.
I like this white space page by Rochelle86. The pink, plaid paper she chose is the perfect choice for her layout. I like the way she was able to incorporate the vintage stamp of the children playing in the snow. Her horizontal cluster works perfectly as a shelf to support her photo and I like the way she added the stitches in the corner.
One of my favorite papers in this kit is the gold dot paper which Linda chose for her background. I like the way she created the rolled paper to place on top using the quote from the Bible to embellish the white solid cardstock. She also added some of the word art from the kit (“A Merry Christmas.) The roughly cut, brown paper frame works so well as a frame for the manger scene and the star placed atop the frame is significant. I like the cluster she created down the side of the page and across the bottom, as well as the small scatter in the opposite corner.
I’m hoping Karen lets me show you are few more inspirational pages in a future post because I found so many gorgeous projects using this collection it was difficult to choose just these. I hope you have enjoyed today’s post and that you find your own creative inspiration this week. Thanks and have a great week!
