You Inspire Me


It’s  been a while since I spent some time cruising through the galleries. I really need to do it more often!  I see so much talent, so many amazing layouts, so many memories preserved.  It gets me so excited to do some of my own scrapping.  The digi community truly inspires me!  And isn’t that the point of sharing our layouts?  To inspire others? Sure, I know for some it about advertising or meeting creative team requirements.  But for me, I love to be inspired!  And as I spent some time looking at the latest layouts, my mission did not fail!  Here are some of the amazing layouts I came across (all images are clickable for full gallery credits).

silly-boy9SILLY BOY by Crystalbella77

I love the use of neutral colors and the fun alpha that emphasize the theme of her “silly boy.”

choco_caramel_crack_ers_CRACKERS by geek_girl

The title work of this layout is fabulous and I LOVE layouts with recipes.  What a great thing to preserve for future generations!

egg_decorating_041009EGGS by kayleigh

What’s not to love?  The colors, the design, the fabulous stitching…it is all so amazing!  I could spend a LONG time in Kayleigh’s gallery!

roadtrip-webROAD TRIP by Eve

This layout is just too cute!  I love the great use of elements, the adorable photo, and the fun journaling!

sweet_sticky_riceSWEET STICKY RICE by Lizzyfizzy

Other than the fact that I ADORE Thai sticky rice, I also love this layout because of the fun bright colors against a neutral background. So sweet!

04-03-holding-youHOLDING YOU by Shaui

Isn’t this layout incredible? I love the bold simplicity of it.  The splash of red paint perfectly pulls in the red of the photo and the tied twine over the photo is the perfect accent for a photo about “holding.”

eat_play_kitchen_EAT by Star74

What a bright and happy layout!  I love how her title work, too!

febfavesFEBRUARY FAVES by Lynette

The black and white photo is just perfect with this colorful page all about her favorite things in February!  I love how the title extends beyond the borders of her photo/patterned paper box and also the multi-colored journaling.

2009-dd-happyeggsHAPPY EGGS by anke

Are those not the cutest eggs you have ever seen? I love their funny faces and the bright colors of this multi-photo layout are just perfect to show them off!

luckyLUCKY by PhoebeJo

This layout by PhoebeJo is perfect!  I love the closeup shot of the game pieces being moved. I also love the pencil border and the desk of cards underneath. The right-justified journaling is also very striking!

My day lightMY DAY LIGHT by lialotito

I can just FEEL the warmth of the sun and the cool of a dip in the pool when I look at this layout! It is a perfect example of using color and designs to help tell the story.  I may not have been there that day at the pool, but I can image what it felt like!


Thank you, everyone, for inspiring me.  For making me want to keep scrapping.  For making me love what I do and for making me want to share it with others.  Your talent and your inspiration keeps me going!


P.S.  THE DAILY DIGI STORE is now open…it’s really just a small little thing…a place for Steph, the “other” Steph,  and me to put our things.  We will be adding products over the coming days and weeks.  Take a peek!
