Hello one and ALL!!! :o) Kylie here…and although it’s a lil’ tough to follow SP’s big announcement yesterday, it’s SOOOooo LOVELY to be back with you after our little blog vacation. And it’s even lovelier to announce not one but FOUR Layout of the Week winners from our inspiration gallery! YES that’s right - one for each week that we were on our break, as well as today’s LOTW. I think everyone has waited long enough (and ever-so patiently!)…so I won’t keep you in suspense any longer! LOL!
Soooo much FUN, yes indeedy!! How cool is this page?! Love the movement created by the awesome design and all those big snowflakes…and of course, the action-packed and super-cute photos. The perfect shade of icy aqua and the pops of bright red are fantastic. And the clever title work really rounds off the FUN!! Another amazing page from kris_t!!
In contrast to kris_t‘s brilliantly-busy multi photo-multi layered page, Sahndra has inspired us with a strikingly ‘simple’ design. What an impact this very special page makes! I’m loving the richly-embossed neutral paper with the bright nutcracker patterns clipped over a mass of hexagons and gorgeously outlined in white. Delicate stamping and a few well-placed elements enhance the page perfectly. And best of all…the sweet, sweet photo that just draws you in and makes your heart smile!
Interview layouts are always FUN! And this one is an absolute winner!! Using a combination of different handwriting fonts, alphas and elements for each question, as well as the sweet little bookplates for every precious answer, shows awesome creativity and it’s a joy to read through – a feast for the eyes really!!! I love the balance of this page and how it’s divided into three so perfectly. LOVE the title – again the different fonts work perfectly together! LOVE the cute photo – so cheeky!
Oh my!! How wonderful is this page?!! The dusty & rosy pinks with the natural papers and elements showcase this cutie-patootie photograph brilliantly! Loving that shimmering background paper – just perfect for any winter page! The pretty ribbons, bows and snowflakes add a delicate girly touch and the swirlie stitching ties the layout together with extra sweetness. Beautiful work!
A huge and heartfelt CONGRATULATIONS to all FOUR ‘winners’ – enjoy your $10 gift cards to the Shabby Shoppe! Your emails are on their way – just be sure to check SPAM folders if you don’t see it :o) Enjoy your Shoppe-ing ladies!
And, as always – THANKS SO MUCH to each and every one of you that posted a layout in the gallery over the holiday break :o) Thank you for sharing your creations with us…we enjoy and appreciate every single AMAZING upload!
Thanks for joining me today! Casharina will be here tomorrow with a WONDER-ful product spotlight you’re gonna seriously luv!
