I have to confess that I still have to pinch myself sometimes to be sure I'm not dreaming when I come across a page in the gallery that was created using one of my templates. It's really SO neat. Seeing them in action documenting *your* stories, used in *your* own unique way is a serious warm fuzzy. And it's remarkably inspiring and uplifting for me because holy cow (!!!!!) this community is full to the brim with fabulous creativity and amazing talents who care about sharing their art and stories with their loved ones. I'm so grateful to get to be a part of that in some small way.
I show you inspiration from my team with every fresh release, but I wanted to shine the spotlight on a few pages from YOU that have caught my eye in the galleries because they are every bit as inspiring. These pages WOWed me completely and I have a feeling they will you too too. Be prepared for a parade of fantasticness. Woot!
Just Perfect by LibbysMommy — I looove the graphic and fun feel Laurie brought to this template and page. The font, the colors, the element details..it's all brilliant and lets the beautiful photo take center stage. In short, I thought the title of this page was fitting indeed. Just perfect.
Luna by Tine — *sigh* I'm a total softy for beautifully scrapped pet pages and Tine's gallery is full of them. They make me happy just looking at them. She always has such fabulous and expressive photos. I love how she scrapped her sweet Luna in this page and complemented the photo by echoing the detail of the apple in her element work. It's beautiful simplicity and the kind of page that just makes me smile.
Play by Lizzy257 — So. I've become a big fan of Lizzy. She's a fabulous "moments" scrapper, as I like to say. She a has a beautiful way of capturing the everyday moments, the little moments, the milestone moments…the *life* moments. And each page has such fantastic detail that really enhances her personal storytelling style. You can see it come alive with this page. She didn't just scrap this template, she rocked it and completely transformed it to showcase the story of her photos. It's brills and I love it.
sisters423 by jencushing — I have to confess I was going to share another (fabulously adorable) page from Jen here, but then at the last moment I saw this one that she created and I couldn't help myself…I just HAD to share it because I adore the subtle details here and most of all this photo!! This is the kind of memory I think we all treasure..those little stolen interactions that we capture. The kind of things that melt our hearts. And this page melted mine.
Little Artist by blanulak — is a fabulous example of how a template can be used to really fit the story captured in photos. From her use of color to the subtle paint splats to how she used the paint brushes to create the frame, I love how she coordinated this page design in such a fabulously cohesive and artistic way…with just the perfect splash of playfulness!
Owen by Pretty Peaches — Melissa has a couple of pages that I felt wooed by because she makes my templates look so good. Ultimately I chose to share this one because who can resist an adorable little face like this?! I love the sense of "boy" and personality she has conveyed here in a subtle but striking way through her use of paper and color.
18 months by nikkiARNGwife — I love the papery and storytelling goodness in Nikki's gallery. She has a beautiful way with color and with element choice and composition and she creates the kinds of pages where you can just feel the love exuding from them. And this page is no exception. She tailored this template to beautifully suit her style and I just adore these photos and her fantastic element and paper work. It's an incredible scrap.
Thank you for the inspiration and thank you for letting me be a part of your beautiful art and stories! It's really such an honor!
I do love seeing your work so if ever you feel like sharing, please feel free to do just that. You can shoot me an email or PM or share your pages with me on Facebook.
