Good morning and happy Monday. It’s Beatrice, and I’m here on the blog with some post-iNSD inspiration for you. I trust you had a fun weekend with all the activities throughout digi-land and I hope you find time to create with the gorgeous product you were able to buy at great sale prices.
Today’s post features Picture Perfect Collection .
Picture Perfect Collection is available now at:
As always Picture Perfect is packed with everything you need to create many gorgeous and varied pages. But now I’ll get right to the purpose of my post by showing you just a few layouts created from this “picture perfect” collection.
The photo blend in Get Lost in the Moment by Kay works really well with the faded, sketchy look she achieved by applying the Blendable Builders to the blue paper. I like the way she tucked the elements into the film strip. Keeping them small lends a dainty look to the cluster. Finally adding the card to substitute for the title and journaling completes the layout flawlessly.
Jenny created a dramatic page in Do What You Love. The stacked, cascade of photos is very eye catching. The small cluster placed horizontally contrasts to the vertical placement of the photos with the buttoned-down film strip reinforcing the vertical design. I love the crop on the blue paper and the way she stitched around it. Placing the title word art in the bottom corner draws the eye down across the rest of the page. Note the pleasing placement of the orange elements in the flower centers, the stapled ribbon and the bit of paint.
Kelley achieved a completely different look in her layout entitled Mariah. She also used a template by Twisted Pixels. She managed to include quite a few photos of her lovely daughter without the layout looking cluttered. Her clusters are so pretty and I like the placement of the doilies which add a sweet, feminine touch to the overall look of the page.
I like the way Norma used the film strip as a shelf to support her photo in Fish Catching. She also modified the look of the blue paper by adding some blendables found in the collection itself. The vertical, cascading vine creates a striking perpendicular design when combined with the film strip. The word art she added is an excellent title for her page and a virtual reminder of why we scrap as we do.
The extraction in Camera Shy by kakleidesigns is amazing and combined with the black and white frame creates a stunning focal point for her layout. She also used My Little Chickadee. The blue and brown ombre paper works so well with the brushwork at the top of the page. I like how she kept her elements large and grounded her cluster with a simple circle. The camera brush and title work are made for each other and complement her page exactly right.
Finally, I’d like to show you Camera Shy by Deanna. I really like the masking of the photo and the paper border down the side of the layout. The tucked-in leaves add a pop of contrasting color. The large cluster across the bottom is gorgeous and beautifully shadowed.
You may have noticed that the papers and elements in both kakleidesigns’ and Deanna’s layouts are similar though used in different ways. That’s because they both used the Use It All Mini by Snickerdoodle Designs for the May challenge at TDC. The mini matches perfectly to the Picture Perfect Collection and gives you the opportunity to try a sampling for yourself. I hope you will stop by, grab the mini and participate in the challenge. It’s easy to make a gorgeous layout from the mini alone but once you have, I think you will want to purchase the entire collection.
Thanks and have a great week.
