Monday Inspiration by Beatrice: This Is Me part 2

January 22, 2018

It’s Monday, and I’m back on the blog hoping to inspire you with layouts using SnickerdoodleDesigns’ latest Collection: This is Me.  There were too many gorgeous layouts to limit the inspiration to a single post. I’m constantly amazed at the variety and number of papers, embellishments and extras included in this collection, all designed to help you scrap your everyday moments.

 The Collection is available now at SnickerdoodleDesigns and The Digichick, at a 30-61% Introductory Savings!

I really like the way franlk masked her sweet photo and added the stacked frames on top. Her placement of the word strips walks the eye throughout the layout. The torn paper edge adds dimension as does the burlap piece. Her cluster is beautifully shadowed, and tucking the journal card in the middle is very creative.

I love the blocked design in Kathryn’s layout, which uses one of the templates in the Collection. She used an artsy style while keeping her page clean. The sketched photo is amazing and I like the way the subject is looking at the butterfly. Keeping the photo as part of the background instead of adding it to a block is a great touch.  Her clusters are so dainty and pretty and work perfectly with the style of the layout. I like the way she kept the book small so it fits into one of the blocks. 

I’m always attracted to heritage layouts and this one by kabra is so pretty. Of course, the photo is a treasure. I like the way she stacked so many of the papers to create a unique background. I love the bit of stamping on the wood paper. The framing is perfect for the vintage photo, and the clusters are large and perfectly shadowed. The bit of lace at the top adds a delicate touch. I like the way the journal card is angled and tucked behind the photo supporting the theme of her layout.

I love the happy photos Deanna used in her layout. She also used a template by Aimee Harrison.  Placing the open books behind the photos creates a unique frame. I like the way she placed all the word strips describing her grandchild in a block below the framed photos. She created her own background using one of the blended papers, an overlay and the accents found in the Collection. I also like the way she placed the tape at the top and the torn paper at the side. The orange in her cluster and the blue bow really pop.

This isn’t me but it could be. The page design in Glori’s layout is so creative. The paper circle supports the blocks which show off the gorgeous cards she has created with her newly purchased toy. The center photo highlights the important purchase along with the creator herself. The neutral background is perfect to show off the cards and the bits of paint add color and texture. Her journaling is an interesting read and shaped to fit perfectly in an empty spot on the page. Her split title also helps move the eye down the page and her shadowing is very realistic.

If you like what you see here you can actually have just a small taste of the Collection by participating in the Use It All Challenge at The Digichick. Check out the mini that you can grab for free.  Once you download it you will want to come back to the shop for more! 

I’ve come to the end of my post as always. I hope you will take some time this week to create something for yourself. Thanks and hoping to see your pages in the galleries!
