We all have our favorites - food, shows, book, all-things-scrapbook-related, Dr Pepper and Bon Jovi. And that's what today's post is about. All my current favorite scrapbook goodness. Here we go!
I'm sure you all have your go-to scrapbookers when looking for inspiration. You know the ones, whose layouts are like eye candy. Two of mine are Susan Weinroth and Stephanie Howell.
I love how Susan designs her pages: the colors, the pattern paper, the embellishments. She makes me want to scrapbook 12x12. Which I totally would do if my pages would look like this:
Added bonus - she quilts. Fantastic quilts. And not only are the front of the quilts beautiful, the backs super fun, too. I need to learn to quilt. A couple other favorites are this ruffle card and this pillow. I also really need to sew more. For more of Susan's work, check out her blog.
Two things Stephanie does on her pages I love? Her handwriting and the way she can just sprinkle embellishments (love the butterflies) over her page and it just flows and looks so good. I tried it once. It didn't turn out nearly as cute.
You can see more of Stephanie's projects on her blog.
For Mother's Day, I upgraded from Photoshop Elements 4, to Photoshop Elements 8. Which means I can now use Actions, and that is very exciting. Well, at least to me, it is. I immediately downloaded Pioneer Woman's Actions for Elements. And I immediately had a favorite - the Seventies action. Which I used on this photo of Mackenzie.
Seriously fun, and it makes me want to make every photo look like it came from the seventies.
Have you seen the new Jillibean Soup line, Summer Squash Soup? Oh how I want it. Love the colors and patterns - I already have pictures in mind to scrap with it.
I tend to use the same colors when I scrap - bright shades of blue, green, yellow and pink. Kind of like these dresses I found at Target for Emma and Mackenzie.
I love border punches. I use them on almost ever page I create. Two of my favorite punches are these:
Layouts in our Flickr group
I am loving these pages recently posted in the WCS Flickr group:
I love how the colors just pop off the page, and the stacked Polaroids are so fun.
Because who doesn't love Target? I love that Sherry turned the tape that gives toilet paper a handle in to a scrapbook accent. Hee hee.
Layout 24 by A.N.D.R.E.A. (Just a link, couldn't get the photo to post - sorry!)
Beautiful page. Love how the photos are linked together.
And with that, my week is over. Thanks so much for stopping by this week. I've got one last question for you before I go - What are your favorites? Share some blogs, tools, Actions, layouts, products and more - let us know what you are currently loving in this oh-so-addicting hobby of ours.
