Welcome to Gallery Highlights for this week!  This week’s projects include an amazing two-page layout, a bunch of multi-photo layouts and a gorgeous card. I hope you like them all as much as I do. Let’s go take a look! You can click on the links to visit the layouts in their galleries and view supply lists, leave a comment for the designer, or view the designer’s other work.

Celebrate Independence by hogansmom

Cathy’s card is simply gorgeous! I love the vintage feel of it, as well as all of the details including twine, stamps, layered papers, and the tiny pearls. It’s a beautiful card – perfect to celebrate this week’s American holiday.

Canoeing Down the River by debduty

Deb’s layout has such a wonderful, fresh summer feel! She used the perfect colors to accent the colors found in these canoeing photos. The light blue and green are cool and calm and inviting, and she chose just enough red to move the eye through the layout and warm it up. It’s a great use of color as well as a beautiful overall layout design.

Time to Travel by esther_a

Esther’s travel layout is deceptively simple and really caught my eye. Using the map paper as her background, she placed photos along the top under a banner and added journaling under the map. But the best part of the design is her use of the star embellishments to showcase the places she’s traveled to. What a brilliant use of accents, and so effective!

Meeting Merida by A2Kate

The first thing I noticed about Katie’s layout was the columns of photos. By placing an enlarged photo in the center and then surrounding it with smaller photos in columns on each side, it makes it easy to include a lot of photos on a one-page layout while still showcasing a large photo. This is a great design and her color choices, as well as embellishment choices, are beautifully matched to the photos.

Buck by scrapally

Allison Landy designed this as a design team member for Simple Stories. It’s such a wonderful traditional layout design. I love the large title with the two tilted photos. Her embellishments are beautifully matched to the theme of the layout and the photo corners create the perfect frame.

LA Galaxy vs. Vancouver Whitecaps by beehive50

Debi’s two-page layout is just stunning! It has a very graphic feel to it and utilizes white space to perfection. What’s really amazing, though, is that she included 7 photos on this layout, along with a lot of journaling, and it still feels clean and graphic. It’s a wonderful example of the phrase “sometimes less is more.”

And there you have them - our gallery highlights for the week! I just wish we had time and space to feature more of the amazing designs out there.  Thanks so much to all of the designers who shared their work with us this week.

    http://purplepumpkincrafts.blogspot.gr/2011/10/october-sketch-challenge.html Melinda’s LO really grabbed my attention. I love the rolled paper & how the photos look like they’re drawing the torn paper together, just like the knot in a bow does.
