Pinterest Inspiration | Doctor Who Poster

My kids are totally obsessed with the BBC television series “Doctor Who.” So I was searching through Pinterest for some Doctor Who t-shirts for them and came across a gorgeous, but very simple, Doctor Who poster. And guess what I thought of instead of t-shirts?! Yep – I thought scrapbooking inspiration!

This image is a poster, and also the cover of the DVD. You can find it here. I love the impact of the very simple photo with the title along the bottom. What a great intro page to an album this would make or an insert for Project Life or even as a layout. And to be perfectly honest about my inspiration, the poster also immediately brought to mind some of Ali Edwards’ layouts, especially the enlarged photos she uses on layouts and in her Project Life album. Ali is the master of adding just a few elements to an enlarged photo and the photo is instantly transformed into a layout. She has far too many beautiful layouts for me to link to, but you can see them on her blog at Ali Edwards/blog. Continue Reading →

Isn’t She Lovely by cindys732003

Cindy did such a fantastic job combining bright colors, different patterns, and a bunch of embellishments, along with four photos. She kept all of her papers within the same collection and same color families, used coordinating embellishments, and layered all of these elements perfectly.

There is a new color trending right now in the digi world – one that I didn’t see coming. Black is the new HOT color.

I’m going to keep my eye on the stores and see how far this trend goes but right now, let’s go take a look at some of the newest ones I’ve found!

For the Birthday Boy by clouds85

I love this card so much that I don’t even know where to start! The background is three different pieces of patterned paper upon which the designer layered and matted multiple tags. She used dimensional adhesive on more than one layer so that the sentiment literally pops off the card. It’s absolutely gorgeous!
