Monday Inspiration (& Freebie) by Beatrice: Rise and Shine

September 25, 2017

Good morning. I hope you had a great weekend and are ready for the week ahead, rested and refreshed. It’s Monday so I’m back on the blog to bring you a new round of inspiration featuring layouts using the Rise and Shine Collection. This collection was previously retired but now it’s out of retirement and available only at The Digichick at an incredible price. Just click the image to be taken to the shop to see for yourself and I think you will agree. If you are familiar with SnickerdoodleDesigns’ collections you know that they are classic, timeless and mix very well together. 

Here are just a few layouts using the collection that I’m certain will help you make the decision to add this collection to your stash.

I love how Kabra mixed and stacked the brown toned papers, especially the dots and gingham. Placing a stack at an angle adds interest to the page. The cluster across the bottom of the lovely wood frame is so pretty. I like the way she tucked in the clock and the rooster. Her simple corner cluster backed by the colorful flourish finishes off the layout just right.

I really like the large photo Norma selected as the background for her layout. The perspective is intriguing, as if the photo were taken from below. The strip of illustrated paper from the kit is the perfect foundation for her large cluster running horizontally across the bottom. The addition of the light ray in the top corner looks like sun flare through the trees. I like the way she tucked in the chalkboard to serve as her title. 

What a pretty, nearly white space layout Renee created using the collection. I really like the pops of gold in the words and flourishes placed across the page. I like the way she placed her photo behind the window and curtain elements found in the collection. The vertical cluster is so pretty and delicate and the verse placed opposite balances with the cluster perfectly.

The masked photo in this layout is gorgeous. It really stands out against the neutral paper the artist selected for the background. The cluster below the photo is outstanding and the leaves appear to be coming directly from the branches in the photo. I like the bits of blue paint in opposite corners and the font she chose is just right for the word “Beauty” found in the collection.

The out-of-bounds photo in this layout definitely sets a celebratory tone and the title work reflects it perfectly. I like the way the artist added clusters in opposing corners and bordered the layout with the gingham paper on just two sides. I also like the way the stars lead the eye across the page. Rotating the tag for her title and tucking it under the raffia is a creative touch. 


I love this freebie cluster that Karen offered a while back, so I’ve made it available for you to download again, in case you don’t have it!  Click on the image below to download!

    This is one of my favorite kits ever, especially the chicken papers. I use this kit for a lot of my fall layouts. So glad you brought it back. This is an A kit guys and gals.
