Monday Inspiration by Beatrice – Strawberry Lemonade
As summer winds down in this part of the world I’m prepared to hold on to the memories for as long as I can. If you are like me you have lots of photos to scrap, so it’s time to get down to business and preserve and share the memories. Karen is ready to help you achieve your goal by placing Strawberry Lemonade, both the kit and the Collection, on sale at a special price. This is a limited time offer so don’t miss out. I’m showing you the bundle because it’s definitely the best value but remember the kit is on sale too.
Of course, since it’s Monday, I’m writing on the blog to bring you some inspiration using this gorgeous collection. I like the clever play on words in this layout by Jenni featuring her family members, who just happen to be redheads. I like her page design using both circles and squares. The dotted circle and ribbons draw the eye down and across the photo and elements. I like the way she placed the bowl of strawberries at the end, reinforcing her theme perfectly.
Joanna had the ideal photo for this kit. I like the way she used the dots, clipped paper to them and repeated the circle with the stitched plaid. I like the blended wood paper she chose for her background. Her cluster is so pretty. It wraps the photo and keeps it the focus of the page. The stapled journal card completes her page flawlessly.
Cathy limited the palette by creating her layout with the greens and yellows available in the Collection. She also used a template by Heartstrings Scrap Art. I like the large photo combined with the two smaller photos. The way she incorporated one of the photos into the banner is very creative. Framing the top photo on one side with the bracket draws the eye to both top photos. Her clusters are so small and pretty and her title work and accompanying journaling are the perfect final additions.
Kythe used so much texture in her page I just want to reach out and touch it. The curled paper revealing the cluster and patterned paper underneath is amazing. I like the lace she used at the top of her page and below both her clusters where it serves as a shelf. The pitcher of lemonade is so realistic. Keeping it large and adding it behind the photo adds to the freshness of her page. Her title is fitting and placing it partly on top of the photo completes the page just right.
Norma’s page is entirely different in tone using mostly reds and pinks which proves, as always, the adaptability of the Collection. The way she used the frames is very creative, placing one of them partially off the page. Adding the paint and splat is a great touch. Her clusters are natural and pretty. I like the way she added the single strawberry in keeping with her title-work.
The torn paper framing in Linda’s layout is just stunning. I like the way she revealed only part of her adorable photo. Her cluster is large and perfectly shadowed. It frames just two sides of the photo balancing the inked edge of the paper she chose. She kept the bubbles large to match her cluster.
I’ve shown you just a handful of demonstrating the versatility of the kit and Collection. I hope you are inspired to finish your summer scrapping as autumn and cooler days draw near. Thanks for reading along and have a great week.
