Hello, and happy June 1st! My funny husband always calls the first of the month the “oneth”, cracks me up!
Today we get to see a beautiful inspirational layout from Laitha’s gallery. This layout uses her kit called Dreamy, and it was created by Miss Parker:
Oh my goodness, I LOVE this layout! The colors of the kit are absolutely perfect for the pictures, don’t you think? I like how she has layered the worn paper over the patterned background paper. Her cluster is just amazing, and she’s used my favorite element from this kit, which is the silver heart clasp – it really provides a great touch to this layout. I also like how the leaves from the cluster hang over the edge of the worn paper and onto the patterned background – that gives it so much dimension, and that really touchable feeling!

Good morning! Today I have an absolutely adorable layout to show you! It’s from MC Designs’ Fresh and Happy bundle, created by cjpark84, and the layout is called New Love:
This layout definitely gets my mommy juices flowing! I have such fond memories of the first moments of holding my precious babies, and I’m sure other moms do too – this one is blessed to have such a gorgeous layout to commemorate those moments. First off, the alpha that has been used for the title is fantastic, I really like this! The alpha can be purchased as an addition to the bundle. The placement of the pictures lends much more interest than 2 totally level pictures would have. Great skill has been used in the arrangement of the clustered elements. And don’t you just love mom’s smile in the picture on the right?

Hi! Today we get to look at an inspiring selection from Kathryn Estry’s gallery. This layout was created by sparky_mom with Kathryn’s Front Porch kit, and it’s called Little Curly Girly:
What an adorable face!!! I love the fact that she used the black and white photo, I think it gives it an ethereal look, and it really makes me want to get to know this child better. That frame is absolutely perfect – it goes so well with our subject’s luscious curly hair. Sparky_mom actually created that frame from a ribbon that Kathryn included in the kit – there are round versions of the frame in the kit as well. The darling heart buttons give it a wonderful girly touch.

Hello Digitals fans! Today we have the pleasure of being inspired by a layout from the gallery of Helena Montero. This layout was created using her darling kit called Felt Toys, and it’s by fran.gardim:
The bright primary colors of this kit are really appealing, I think. The way she’s anchored the pictures with paper strips and stitching is wonderful, and I especially like how she’s trailed the stitching off the paper. The rotated background paper on top of the patterned paper works really well – it is so hard sometimes to know how to use patterned papers without overwhelming your layout, so this example is a great one. Aren’t those felt toys cute? Fran has scattered them around in a way that puts a wonderful finishing touch to this adorable layout!

Hello! Browsing through Graziela’s gallery this morning was a treat – there are many pretty works of art there. I selected a layout using her latest kit, called I Love Sea, to be our featured layout. It’s called Love Beach and it’s by ccolaneri:
The color palette that Graziela used for I Love Sea is delicious! She used several colors you would expect to find in a sea-themed kit, but then there’s this bright coral color – definitely a sea color, and it makes everything pop, as you see from the starfish in the layout above. I like how she has used the fishing net as a mat for her photo and woven the corners into the net. The treatment she’s used with her photo is the perfect touch for this layout, it really blends in wonderfully. She’s chosen several of the great elements that Graziela gives us to work with in I Love Sea. There are also a number of whimsical-type elements in this kit, though none have been chosen in this layout. They definitely give you lots of choices for the tone of your layout. Ccolaneri’s layout is a wonderful inspiration for how to use Graziela’s kit, and I know you will come up with imaginative ideas of your own!

Hello Digitals friends! I’m sure you know that the May CAKE Event is going on now, the last day will be tomorrow, Tuesday, May 22nd. You want to be sure to grab these amazing mini kits that will all work together to increase your scrapping potential. We are going to look at a layout from Kristmess’s gallery that was created using her May CAKE products, which she has called Brad’s Paisley. I truly think I would buy this kit from the name alone, LOL! This layout is called Sweet, and it is by dogwood828:
This little girl is absolutely precious! Her smile’s so big, and those little teeth so cute – the pictures are definitely the impact point of the layout. The paper strips have been used so well, random in their arrangement and placement, but anchored down with perfectly precise stitching – the effect is terrific! With just a few more clustered elements to add the finishing touch, this layout is amazing, definitely one that will be treasured. I have to wonder if Ella has the same personality 7 years later that she shows in these photos?

Hi – welcome to your weekend – I’m so late getting this done that I’m sure everybody is home by now and has the bar-be-que going, right? Oh well, nonetheless, we have a big treat in store, today from Carena’s Designs gallery. Carena’s newest kit is called Pink Gerbra Kit, filled with, you guessed it, pink Gerbra daisies! Our layout is called Pink Gerbras and it’s by Jean Ann:
This layout does a wonderful job of highlighting the picture, yet showing off all the beauty of this kit at the same time – that’s pretty much what we strive for in our digiscrapping, right? The photo mask with the photo goes so well, and Jean Ann has placed that circle mask with picture inside the natural circle of color on the background paper which looks great too. Some of the flower clusters are provided as a part of this kit’s bundle (or purchased separately), and the kit is just packed with flowers, grass, leaves, plenty to cluster your heart out as has been done on this page.

Good morning! Today we are going to get some inspiration from a layout from Alessandra Designs’ Gallery. This layout is called Getting Dirty, and it’s by Yvonne55, using the kit Artistry:
I hope all children have pictures like this somewhere in their past. Look at the joy on this little girl’s face as she gets more and more paint on her – such freedom!
Artistry is the perfect kit for this layout, with its bright colors and its painterly elements that help tell the story here so well. The paint and brushes and palette are such wonderful details, and the paint strokes are just right. That tree actually comes on the background paper – there are a huge number of beautiful background papers contained in Artistry. Yvonne55′s cluster in the top left corner is a glorious finishing touch. Layout is linked if you’d like to leave her some love!

Hello Digitals fans! Today we are going to take a closer look at a wonderful layout from Vicky Day’s gallery. This is called On My Way by the51mom, and it uses Vicky’s kit called First Birthday:
Wow, somebody catch that boy before he crawls out of that page! That’s the first thing to catch the eye, this wonderful out-of-bounds extraction that the51mom has used here. I love how she framed the striped background paper and how it contrasts against the main background paper. What a color explosion this layout is! The bold and bright color palette that Vicky has chosen is the theme for one of the best birthday kits I’ve seen – and even though it’s titled First Birthday, you could use it for any fun birthday layouts. See how the51mom put that one candle on the cupcake? I had the idea of reducing the candles and putting more on there, maybe 18 for my daughter’s upcoming birthday. Every single element and paper in this kit work together to create wonderful birthday memories like On My Way. I vote you add this to your stash right away! The layout preview is linked if you want to leave some love in the gallery.

Good morning, hope it’s the start of a fabulous week for you! Today I found a really cute layout in Sarah Meyer’s gallery to share with you. It was created using Sarah’s kit called Me And My BFF by Yvonne55 and is called Let’s Play:
I really like this layout a lot! I like the main pink background paper, and especially when she’s used 3 cutout circles from other patterned paper to highlight. I like the elements and how they have been used – by the way Yvonne has created small clusters all around the pictures, they draw my eye right in to the photos. And those photos are absolutely adorable! I was looking at the one of the little guy and thinking that in a year’s time he will be all over those park animals! The layout is linked if you want to leave her some love! If you buy the page kit, you save money and there’s an alpha included with it too.
