Monday Inspiration by Beatrice: This is Me March
Have you checked out the new This Is Me Series by SnickerdoodleDesigns? I hope you have because it’s amazing. This is Me March is the latest release and it’s packed with papers and embellishments and even includes templates and glitter styles. You can mix and match all the kits in the series but each is chock-full enough to stand on its own. I hope these designs encourage you to scrap about yourself and as Karen says, leave a legacy for your family!
It wasn’t easy to choose from the many layouts posted using this kit so I’ll show you just a few that demonstrate the versatility of the kit.
I’ll begin with this layout by Rochelle because she scrapped about herself and her goals. I like the way she limited her palette to the pinks to really show off her photos. Combining the masked photo with the smaller square photos is a creative technique I admire. Her clusters are so pretty and adding them in the corners helps guide the eye across the page. I really enjoyed reading her journaling. Her goals are fantastic.
Here’s another personal page, though from some years ago, by msbrad. I like that she used one of the pocket templates in the kit and tied the page with the green ribbon. The clusters, word art and journal card (my favorite in the kit) fill the template spots perfectly. She applied the glitter style to the arrows in the kit and combined it with the scatter. The stitched border finishes off the page just right.
This page by Norma is amazing. I love the way the photo spills out of the double frame. I like the way she placed the clouds and sparkles on top of the photo. The single cluster spilling into the scribble is really the only embellishment needed for her page. The choice of a subtle paper for the background allows everything else to shine.
I’ll jump in here with another about me page, this time by Kythe. She also did one of her younger self and I really like both but chose this one to show you for no particular reason. The use of the mask is ideal for the photo which has touches of green to work with the kit colors. I like the split page design and the complementary papers she chose. She created the cascading, floral vine herself and the pink flowers really pop. The lace brush-work is so pretty and the ribbon ties everything together flawlessly.
The unique and textured background Glori used in her layout is actually included with the kit papers. I really like the masked photo and the way she combined the word art to create her title. The cluster at the bottom is beautifully shadowed and the vine traveling down the page, as well as the scattered word bits, guide the viewer across and down the page.
I’ve already used this kit twice myself and I think you will agree it is a stunner. I hope you have enjoyed these inspirational layouts. Come back to the blog on March 1st, when the This is Me March FREEBIE will be available!!!Thanks and have a great week.
