Monday Inspiration by Beatrice – This Is Me August
It’s Monday and I’m here on the blog ready to bring you the newest collection from the This Is Me Series. Just like all the other collections in the series, This Is Me August is filled with papers and elements that coordinate with the rest of the series. I love all the brilliant colors which really speak of summer to me. Check out the brush stroke alpha ready for you to re-color to match any of your projects. I know the layouts below will inspire you to add this collection to your digi-stash.
What an adorable subject in Jenni’s layout. His blue eyes are just amazing. I really like the page design with the stacked photos of varying sizes. Tilting one of them adds interest to the page. I like the way she added the frames behind the photos and placed the journaling inside one of them. Her clusters are so pretty and the stack of pencils behind the largest adds a vertical note to the page.
The floral clusters in Cathy’s layout are just gorgeous. I like the way she placed them in the corners. Adding the stack of photos and title-work between the clusters adds to the diagonal design. Her flourished title, included in the collection, looks like letter-press to me. The bits of paint and glitter and the butterfly complete the page just right.
I love all the details in Kythe’s layout. The large photo of the sunflower is outstanding and I like the way she clipped small pieces of it to two of the puzzle pieces. The mask behind the photo really makes it stand out. The smaller cluster in the corner, complete with sunflower, mimics the large photo. The page border is so pretty and delicate. I like the way she created her title with the strip of words on top of the larger main title. The black scribble ties it all together.
Renee really capitalized on the colors in the collection for her colorful layout. I like the way she added the edger to the pink, blended paper found in the kit. The framed photo and word strips create a stair step design which helps move the eye down the page. Her small clusters and journaling on the word strips finish the page perfectly.
I love the tribute page created by Chrissy. The torn paper framing is so creative and unique. I like the way she placed her clusters in the corner and across the bottom of framing. Tucking in the journal card works really well. The kit word-art is ideal for her title since August has so many special memories for her.
This layout by Glori is so serene. I love following along with her photos of the three legged deer and her babies year after year. The masked photo is very pretty and combines so well with the smaller framed photo. I like the classic page border she created and repeating the same flowers in both clusters is a great design technique. I like the action she applied to the kit word-art that serves as her title. The right- justified journaling fits the page flawlessly.
I know, after viewing these projects, you will agree that you can achieve so many different looks from a single SnickerDoodle collection. Thanks for reading along and I hope I have inspired you to have a creative week!
