LOTD April 21st

Hi everyone!  I almost didn’t make it today.  But better late than never right?  Have you browsed A+ Designs’ galleries lately?  My oh my there are a lot of inspirational layouts in there!  Today I picked this one by CTM Deej called Giddy Up.


What caught my attention was the layering of the paper strips and ribbons as well as the colorful splats behind the photo. 

The second inspirational layout is one by catgoddess at Scrapbook Bytes.  I love how her element and photo placement draw your eye across the page!


Both layouts were made using Mels’ new collab with Armina Designs called Retro Spring  available at her Gotta Pixel Store and her Scrapbook Bytes Store.

Both layouts are linked to their place in the galleries.  Swing by and give these ladies some well deserved love!  I hope everyone has a fantastic week and we’ll see you back here soon!

LOTD Wednesday April 14th

Here are two more wonderful layouts using Mel's newest collaboration kit, with Armina designs, called Retro Spring. Available at both Gotta Pixel and Scrapbook Bytes.

The first layout is by jen33199. I like how she used the different elements in the kit to create her own page border...very creative. I also like how she used the bench element. Those type of elements usually stump me, so it is inspiring me to see them used creatively.

The second layout for today is by Laura Marie. She also used Sunshine Template by Armina designs. I really like how that first picture seamlessly moves across both circles. I also like how she framed the second picture.

Nice job ladies. Be sure to go leave them some love in the galleries. Both images are linked.

LOTD Wednesday April 7th

Here are a couple pretty layouts from the gallery at SBB and Gotta Pixel.

This first layout by kakleidesigns used the kit Romance Me. I particularly like the rolled paper, and the curtain draping over the frame.

The second layout is by y baros, and I enjoy the humerous journaling to go with the kit It's a Girl Thing. I like the picture cluster in the corner and how despite not being girly, she effectively used the girly elemnts to make a wonderful cluster in the bottom right corner.

Both images are linked so head over to the galleries to leave them some love and browse around to get more inspiration.
