Monday Inspiration by Beatrice – This is Me September Collection
Hello and happy Monday. If you (or more likely your workplace) celebrate Labor Day, I hope you are having a good holiday. I know I always enjoy extra time to browse the galleries for inspiration and I have some gorgeous pages to show you today using Snickerdoodle Designs’ latest collection: This is Me September. I’m showing you just the collection but as always separates are available too. I hope you have been collecting all the kits and collections from the This is Me Series but in case you haven’t you can check them out here: Snickerdoodle Designs .
This is Me September is available at a special price for a limited time so be sure to grab it while it’s on sale.
This layout by Chrissy uses the collection in a non-school themed layout, demonstrating the versatility of the collection. I really like the stacked papers, aligned straight in contrast to the tilted photo. I like her choice of the map background paper and circle scatters which look like bubbles and support her water theme. Her clusters are pretty and I like the way she combined the real flowers with the hand-drawn leaves.
I like the diagonal page design in Cathy’s layout featuring this cutie embarking on a year in third grade. The kit word art works perfectly as her title. Her clusters bridge the photos and the apple brush and the school bus support her theme.
Another clever page design can be found in Deanna’s layout. I like the way the papers are stacked on just two sides. The ruler frame is perfect for the subject and I like the way she placed the ribbon along the bottom of the frame. The cluster she created with the stacked books creates the perfect shelf for the owl. The corner clusters walk the eye down and across the page. I like the brushwork on both sides of the pretty photo.
I love the masked and framed photo in this page by Glori. Limiting the palette to the grays with just a pop of yellow is very effective. I like the way she hung the tag from the strap and pinned the journal card with the ribbon. Vertically orienting the title adds additional interest to the page. I like the stitched stars and the paint behind the hearts.
I really like the photo treatment in this layout by Jenni. I like the way she offset the frame and tacked the photo down with the star and the owl. The semicircle of pencils creates a very effective backdrop. I like the way she used the arrows to point to the subject and the torn papers add a lot of texture and dimension to the page.
Linda’s page is a perfect example of a back to school page for an older child. I really like the paint and brushwork she placed on top of the photo. I like the title-work placed at right angles. She also limited the palette for a more dramatic look to her page. The arrows and clock brush support her theme.
I hope I have inspired you by showing you these gorgeous and varied pages. Enjoy the rest of the holiday and have a creative week!
