Copy Cat Challenge #52

As soon as i spotted this page at gallery standouts i knew i had to lift it. Finally today i had a chance to get this page going. There are so many things that i love about this page. I love the white space & the impact that it adds to the grouping. I love the interest the dot paper adds to the page. The simple journaling. The wash behind the photo injects a touch of softness into the hard lines of the main design. The simple date. All adds up to a masterpiece to me.

Thanks so much for the inspiration this week dlhoffer!

Here is my lift:

Hope you are feeling inspired & get a chance to join in this week!

Wee Ones Quick Pages

Hello everyone! It has been awhile since i have posted something. The nice weather is keeping us busy like Tara as well. Today I wanted to share with you all my latest project. I am totally in love with these new quick pages that i created using Katie's wonderful products. I love the whimsy, colourfulness & design of these pages.

The main kit that the pages are created from is this adorable one called Little Layette. This kit is hands down my new fave!

Here are a couple pages that have been created using these pages:

Thank you!

Hi everyone! Sorry we haven't posted in a while, life has been a little busy and my creative mojo has been on the low side. I hate when that happens :( We've been keeping busy going for walks, hanging out with friends and I have been working on a special gift for Addison for her first birthday. Man can you believe in the next month or so she is going to be 1! WOW! I really don't know where the time has gone. I'm going to miss her terribly when I go back to work. Oh if I could win the lotto :) Today I just wanted to share some of the fabulous pages from our last two challenges. Check back next week for an all NEW Copy Cat. Enjoy your week. - Tara

Colour Inspiration No. 03

Hello everyone, I'm a little under the weather today, but on the weekend I fell in love with a colour combo and I just had to do a layout using these colours. I was searching the Gap Clothing website looking for clothes for Addison, when I came across this collection. The collection also was calling me because it is the same name as the city I live in! Too funny :) I hope these colours inspire you as much as they have inspired me. Don't forget to link us to your pages in the comments field. We would love to see what you guys come up with :)-Happy Scrapping! - Tara

My New Fave Page ...

Ever finish a page & sit back to look at it, then think "I am an awesome scrapbooker, i love this page!" (I hope you do!) I think i like this page so much because it feels different than my pages lately. I remembered that so many of you have asked to know how Tara & I scrapbook, so i thought i would say a few words about this page.

I added lots of dimension with shadows to add a nice interest. Notice how the photos really look like they are popping off the page. I like a page that has a tight grouping & allows for lots of negative space. The frame holds the grouping all together. The cool shadow on the white frame came right with it, Katie did all the work on that one. An idea to try is layering the different colours of stitching like i did with the brown & white ones. Notice the visual triangle with the turquoise flossy stitches, also the red elements. The grouping set to right side takes dominance over the other ones. If all the groupings were really busy then your eye wouldn't know what to focus on.

Thanks for reading through my ramblings ... I will stop now.

Gallery Inspiration

Happy Easter weekend to all, hope you are having some nice warm weather like we are here in Ontario & get to enjoy some time with family. It is so nice outside i actually wore shorts & flip flops yesterday ... it's April!! Wow! Today i bring you some inspiration from the galleries to get your mojo going. Looking at all these talented artists pages makes me want to scrapbook.

I couldn't resist sharing this stunning page by canadianmommy. The bright colours against the craft paper work so well & i love how the stitched circles add a nice movement to reinforce the theme here.

I just love what Bailey (Starlite9711) created for her daughter, talk about stunning & so so inspiring. I might try this, it looks like fun to create.

Love this tight design by emmasmom & the shadows are so great here!

This page Nath created for my last Creative Challenge here on the blog & i think her result is pretty stinkin' awesome. Love the title that fits into the grouping partially, the mix of papers & elements ... beautiful.

I love this page by dawnsouthard. The template that she used is perfect for adding paper or photos mixed with the journaling. Love the refreshing colour scheme too! Join in Stephs All About Me challenge this week like this artist did to create a page based on what you are good at.

I love this design by JenniferBarrette with that large long flower & the cool striped paper for the background. Looks great!

This page is cute!! Love the black & white photos with the bright colours & layers of ribbons, word strips & buttons. I love the title too, h is for... Wonderful page GemmaC!

I have fallen in love with this adorable face & page. Seriously, how adorable is that photo!? What sweet eyes, love the black & white conversion. Love the simple design with layers of papers. Great page misfitinmn!

Have a good day! - kayleigh
