Time for another round of real life scrapbooking inspiration! Check out these great peeks into everyday life found around the Web this week …
How cute it that photo? “Curlers” by Tricky Nag just jumped out at me in the gallery, thanks to the interesting angle and great play of this adorable pic. I also like the fact this mom is documenting the events leading up to the performance, whereas so often we tend to get focused on just the event itself.
I found several things to love about “The Things You Say” by pne123. First, the quote is simply precious and I love that it is now documented for this little girl to enjoy later on. I also really like the soft palette, the delicate choice of embellishments, the combination of layered elements with the text on the background, the cute little birdie stamp, and of course, that adorable photo.
It’s that time of year again! I think it was my love of office & school supplies that first attracted me to “Bus Stop” by rebecca h. I really like how the photos are tucked into the library pockets, the fun and perfectly placed combination of elements, and just the overall balance and realistic feel of the page.
Another great school-related page, “Silly School Photo” by lacidock takes a more humorous look at that special first day. I love the way the yellow striping really draws you into the center of the page and all the fun embellishments.
If you’re in the mood to read some very insightful and heartfelt journaling, take a closer look at “Interchangeable” by nevache. I love the simplicity of this photo-less page and the way the title work and overall design really help tell the story of how this gal feels about this role in her life.
“Century Gothic” by terese shares a piece of this scrapper’s life I think many of us can relate to … a love of fonts. But how many of us have documented this particular love? Even better is how the fonts themselves help tell the story on this page …
You can’t go wrong documenting a simple list of the everyday behaviors, preferences, activities and funny traits that make up a child’s everyday life at a particular age. Add a set of cute photos and a handful of great embellishments and you’ll see why “Favourites” by SkrappyKathy is one of my, well… favorites!
“Fall Day” by liljatr is one of those layouts you can really just sit and stare at for a while. I was first drawn to the collection of photos and the interesting framing of the kids on the bikes. But then the more I looked, the more I noticed all of the great details on this spread … the subtle brushwork, the whimsical embellishments, the various collections of words and phrases. I can’t think of a better way to welcome fall and wrap up this week’s Story Board …
