Gallery Highlights | 10.26.2012

Welcome to Gallery Highlights for this week!

This week’s finds include some very cute layouts that are sure to inspire you. I was very inspired by the adorable photos these designers used and  how well they incorporated multiple photos and fun embellishments onto their pages. Let’s go take a look at them and I hope you like them all as much as I do. Don’t forget – 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.

Loved This by RobynRW

Robyn did a beautiful job of making this first layout both clean and simple yet bright and active. She placed all of her photos, papers, and washi tape in a grid pattern – making it one cohesive unit. This design allowed her to use a lot of fun product yet also keep the design sleek. Her gorgeous mixed-font title with the large arrow is the perfect finishing touch.

Go Fish by tdavenport

Terri’s layout struck me immediately. I adore the enlarged photo across the top and her blending technique for her son’s photo is just cool. And I also love that she included four more photos under the large photo. It allows the large photo to set the scene and the smaller photos to tell the story. And who doesn’t love those banners and papers? This is just stunning.

Along with using absolutely adorable photos, Erin came up with a great design for this layout. She layered her photos on top of a strip of distressed patterned paper and then used paper strips, an arrow and the title to highlight the photos even more. The paper and embellishments along the top and bottom balance the whole design beautifully.

In a Jeep by Leslie Ashe

Leslie’s layout is so full of detail and fun products that I almost don’t even know where to start. Her base is a piece of kraft paper and she layered neutral patterned paper on top of that. Then she added in 12 small photos and filled in the gaps with a banner, the title, word stickers, brads, flair and so many fun embellishments.

I adore this next project! Corri used paper, a sticker, buttons and ribbon to create such a cute card! My favorite part of the entire thing is the navy and white ribbon. The crisp, clean ribbon makes the colors in the papers just pop. I love everything about this!

Dude! by hockeygirl

And another set of adorable photos! Erica’s photos and title are just the perfect combination. The photos are hilarious and the title captures the theme so beautifully. I love the embellishments she chose, as well as the soft colors combined with the black-and-white photos. Great layout!

Icons of San Francisco by whosthisgirl

And finally, we have this wonderful two-page layout to finish it off for the week. The designer spread 10 photos across the pages and used fun and colorful tags and stickers to identify the iconic locations in the photos. Such a fun layout and a great two-page design.

And there you have them – our gallery highlights for the week! As I say every week, I really 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.

    Stephanie, what is your criteria for selecting the layout to highlight? Are the layouts from designers you know or blogs you frequent?

    • Steph October 28, 2012 at 9:26 am #

      Kathy – I spend time looking through various online store galleries throughout the week – the layouts are all from those galleries – thus, the name of the article “Gallery Highlights.” I select layouts that catch my eye based on several factors or on a theme that I am thinking about presenting – I may be looking for well-balanced two-page layouts one week and great ways to use patterned paper another.

Let us know your thoughts!
