Inspired By: Pictures I Love

Hello everyone!  Kim here with you on the blog today.  You know those photos that you just love?  The ones that capture a very special moment or a very special look or a very special emotion?  Well… sometimes those are the photos I struggle to scrap.  After thinking about this, I believe it’s because the pictures are so special, I feel like the layout has to be “worthy” of the pictures.  Do you know what I mean?  Anyone else have this struggle sometimes?

I’m intentional about taking birthday pictures of my kids each year, and this year we just had fun with the “photo shoots”.  The kids are getting a little older and easier to photograph, and if I approach it in the right way, they don’t complain about having to be photographed.  I try to take a few “posed” but mix in a lot of letting them just be themselves. Keep in mind that I am not a professional photographer.  Just a photo-lover who is teaching myself the art of photography.  My daughter is the one that loves to be photographed right now, and I am so happy with the photos we got this year.  So much that I hadn’t scrapped them yet.  As I was getting ready to write this post, I told myself I needed to get those photos off the computer and into a layout!  And I knew that Zoe’s collab kit with Amber Shaw “Perfectly Beautiful” was going to be perfect for this one!  So I did it… I scrapped the special photos and I am glad I did.  Here’s the result…

Project Life Tuesday: October 21

Hi Zoe fans! I’m here to show you a single photo layout I did using a fun Zoe kit. I love doing single photo layouts because it really leaves me a lot of room to be creative with patterns and elements to make a layout feel complete.

I used Zoe’s Family Man kit for this layout and I just love the way it all came together. I stuck with a couple of main colors for the patterns and used the solid orange as a contrast. This is one of my favorite photos of my husband and it makes me happy to see him taking center stage on a layout.

Free Spirit – NEW from Zoe Pearn

Oh hey!

Are you tired of Fall kits? Fall is lovely and all, but between you and me… I’m a bit tired of seeing everything Fall, Fall, Autumn, Halloween, Fall. Rinse and repeat. So, I decided to buck the trend this week and make a gorgeously girly kit that’s good for any time of the year (including Fall :P)

Free Spirit is full of gorgeous, rich, girly colours, wood tones and sparkly splashes of gold!

October 2014 Super Scrappers

Hello, all!
How are you doing? I hope you’re getting bundled up as the colder weather arrives, or, if you are on the Southern hemisphere, your clothes are getting lighter because Summer is approaching!
Here we are again for another edition of Super Scrappers, with me, Sherly aka nietis! Let’s get rolling!

The first page I chose was Learning #383 by nachtmol. This page caught my eyes by the big photo in black and white as well as the paint ‘works’ that she did! I love how the contrast makes it stands out amongst the other pages!






Next isLearn to Love Again by dotcomkari. The composition, the heartfelt journal, the cluster beneath the photos are all amazing! I am in awe as to how much she put into this page!






Those cute photos, those awesome papers and the awesome use of the word strips on this page, Best Friend by carolinalima, make it so sweet, pretty and gorgeous!






Did you know that Zoe’s kits are also amazing for Project Life type of pages?! Look at this page, My Diary by Nixenkind! I love every little bit and piece in her page! Every detail is beautiful!






Last, but not least, Grand Sunset Princess by cmkb396. The pretty pictures, the clusterings and the Summery feel of her page make me want to rewind Summer back! Such a pretty page (and you can’t go wrong with those hexagon shapes!).






Well, that’s all for now! I hope you enjoy looking through these fabulous pages using Zoe’s goodies. For your chance to be featured, don’t forget to upload the pages you scrapped with Zoe’s kits in her SSD’s gallery!
Until next month, keep scrapping! :)
