Hello everyone! It’s Jenelle here today with our latest Product Spotlight. As the majority of our Shabby Shoppe Blog readers are in the midst of their summer, I thought it would be a great idea to highlight one of our beachy kits today. Mind you, Kylie and I are still shivering through winter down here in Australia, so scrapping with this kit has really warmed us up and has us dreaming of the summer sunshine being back again here really soon!
Splash is such a fun kit to scrap with – a real mix of shabby/ornate/casual – helping you create wonderful beach or pool layouts from your lazy summer days. The textures in the papers are brilliant and they lend themselves really well to blending. And I love all the little chrome beach elements – they really stand out against the blues and greens. Oh and the labels – how cute are the labels?! I reach for them a lot in my summery pages.
So, enough talk already! On to the inspiration!! First up is my layout using Splash (and a couple of other Shoppe goodies – I will outline them in my Shabby Artist gallery post). I had lots of fun creating this and really loved the effect of the textured background paper.
Kim has wowed us yet again with her scrapping mastery. Splash is showcased beautifully here in this layout of her youngest little man – what a cutie! I love this photo!
I love how Casharina has ‘sprinkled’ some pink throughout her layout, perfectly complementing the blues and greens of Splash. A gorgeous summertime page!
Rosy has highlighted perfectly how Splash can be used for non-beachy layouts. What a beautiful baby boy page she has created here! I also can’t help but notice that Rosy has used her trademark blending techniques here with the background paper. You can check out Rosy’s blog post on soft light blending modes here if you missed it last week.
And to finish off, a delightful fun-in-the-pool layout from Kylie. I just love that title!
I hope these layouts from the team have helped inspire you to get creative with your latest scrapping projects. You can check out layout credits and more details in our Shabby Artist gallery as we upload them throughout the day/night.
Well, that’s all for today folks! Thanks so much for dropping by today. Please check back again on Thursday, when Kylie will be sharing another of her gorgeous (and free) desktops! We’ll see you all then!
