Inspire Me

A fine Saturday to you all! I'm back with some lovely layouts to help inspire your scrapping this week, head over to last week's thread to see all the wonderful layouts that I just didn't have room for. All the layouts are linked to the gallery so you can leave some love.

Love Grows Here | Sidsymarie
This is a great layout showing how you can place a picture running across the whole page. Karen done some great clustering at the bottom of the picture & I love how she's put the date on the tab & stitched it down. That title is super cute with the elements in place of letters! Karen used Down on the Farm by Scraps by Andrea for this stunner.

Moonlight | Kristal_Kreations
Kristal has shown off how you can use a themed kit for just about any layout with some creativity. She used the new kit Ordinary Wizardry by Scrappin' Serenity which is actually a Harry Potter themed kit (& it's on sale for 25% off!). But as you can see, there are no magical elements on Kristal's page, rather she has used some of the generic elements to complete the page. And how adorable is that picture of the little one looking through the telescope?

Logan Pass | Queen.wild
Lovin' how bright & happy this layout is with all the fun elements. Lahni's actually made that heart border herself & as you can see the heart theme runs throughout the layout, from the heart border to the cutout hearts used for both papers & pictures. For this layout, Lahni used Shine Down on Me by B2N2 Scraps which I believe is still available at 30% off!

Cookies for Santa | Kimberly27
I'm always impressed with 2-page layouts, mostly 'cause I'm not so good at them. This one by Kimberly is just adorable & I love how she's used the big picture in the middle of the layout. The kit used, Cookies for Santa by Flower Scraps, is perfect for this with all the cookie cutter & cookie elements. Don't forget that Christmas is coming up soon so you might want to stock up on the Christmas kits!

Travel | Wtunison
For many of us, doing a layout without any pictures can be very daunting, that's why I love this layout by Wendy. She's done an amazing job of journaling but also in bringing your eye away from the journaling with the elements. Such a great idea to put buttons over the states that she's already visited & the road sign cluster is fabulous. Wendy used the huge kit Are We There Yet? by Digital Harmony Design Studio & Meagan's Creations; this is great for all your travel pictures.

Greatest of Great Grandpas | Tamlia
Finally, we're going to end with this adorable layout by Tammy. She's shown off a great way to use one picture but show multiple angles. You see the full picture in the bottom left & then Tammy has focused on parts of each face for the rest of the pictures; I especially love the close up of the eyes. Such a neat idea! Tammy used Spring Breeze by IvoryKeys Digital Dreams

'Tis all for this week! Head on over to the STS Gallery to see what else our forum members have been up to & leave some love on your favorites. If you happen to see a layout that you would like to see featured on the blog, post it in this week's thread; I want to know what inspires you!
