Hello :o) SP here with you guys today…for the JULY edition of the project SCRAP 2012 check-ins! Guess what?! If you have scrapped your July pages – you are OVER HALFWAY through with scrapping 2012!!!! WOW, doesn’t that feel GREAT?! All that we have left is August through December…and then the cover pages! So…KEEP UP THE AWESOME WORK and before you know it…you’ll have another year up-to-date, without that icky feeling of always being behind! And, as I always say – it is NEVER too late to start now! As long as you have been taking photos – you can easily go and download all of our 2012 templates…and be up-to-speed in NO TIME :o) I promise – you’ll be SOOOOOO happy that you did :o)
So, for today – we’ll be highlighting the JULY templates and some of the gorgeous layouts from the project SCRAP 2012 inspiration gallery (which you must check out)! If you missed the July templates – no worries, you can still download them HERE! For us…July was off-the-charts busy…but filled with all kinds of fun and travel, too :) Of course…there was the 4th of July holiday…hot days…Vacation Bible School and SO much more! I opted to modify my pages just a teensy bit…not much really! I just added photos in a couple of the paper blocks, as well as the multi-photo page journaling. I was able to fit lots of text on my ‘main’ page, so it worked out great! As I’ve probably said too many times (lol)…that’s my fave part of layered templates…you can totally customize them and make them your own (as you will see with many of the examples below)! So, we’ll start with my pages…Goodness…this will be another month where I need to add extra pages as we did so much, and took lots of photos, too (YAY)! Here goes…
Now, let’s move on to the amazingly sweet and talented Amber! Her pages are gorgeous…and most of all, so personal and heartfelt and special! Truly love EVERY single thing about them! Thanks so much for the inspiration, Amber!
I think it’s so funny – somehow Kim and I scrap with like minds or something, lol! We often have common papers or items on our pages…and this month is no exception! We both worked with the same dot paper from the Barefoot collection…love it! I also had that green polka dot paper as my background for some time, too – then ultimately, switched it out! Anyhoo, lol…LOVE these as per usual! Especially that big and HAPPY pic of little Samuel (who is growing up sooooo fast)!
I really like what Rosy did with the templates…she re-worked them a bit and the result is perfect! The color combo here is fantastic (love orange and blue/turquoise together)…as well as the mix of patterns to highlight all of the adorable pics!
Now, JoyontheJourney’s pages totally jumped out of the gallery to me! Her mix of bright, happy colors…and the added embellishments – AWESOME! Of course, all of the cute pics certainly hold their own against the beautiful design :o) LOVELY job…thank you for sharing!
I always gravitate to Lu’s pages in the gallery…even before I know they are hers, lol! Her layouts are always so full of life and family and love…not to mention, fantabulous design details! I love the contrast of the simple main page…and the ‘busy’ and ‘full’ multi page! They balance each other very well and leave you wanting to turn the page to see more :o) Thanks for inspiring us…again!
Next, we have these super duper GORGEOUS pages from pqtn! I love the entire ‘feel’ of the layouts…and all of the little details…from the adorable banner, to the circle photo (great idea), large title and more! I find myself looking at these over and over again, to see what I might have missed the first time, lol! Just perfect – THANK YOU for sharing!
And, oh how Kylie’s pages make me SMILE and long for winter, lol! I love seeing her family pages…especially the rare treat of mum and dad…and the girls are precious as always! These layouts are full of winter fun and special time spent together – these really are treasures :o)
So, I think that will do it for inspiration today! Of course, there are MORE layouts to enjoy in the project SCRAP 2012 gallery – so be sure to take a peek…I promise that you will find yourself INSPIRED :o)
Before I go…here is a quick little peek at August’s templates – love ‘em! Kylie will be sharing them with you next Thursday :o)
I hope you all have a BEAUTIFUL day/night…and that you enjoy scrapping 2012 along with us! Be sure to stop back by tomorrow as we share info about our next FAST & FABULOUS speed scrap (yay!)! Until next time…XOXO — SP :o)
