PRETTY PAGES FROM THE PINK REPTILE GALLERY | by BARBARA

Hello and welcome to the February edition of Pretty Pages where we scour the Pink Reptile Designs Gallery for amazing pages to share with you.

Superstition by silent ranks
I just love this first layout, it has wonderful journaling letting us know how she feels about Superstition. And even using a '13' playing card instead of a photograph. Then has placed just the correct elements, a four leaf clover and the horseshoe! I love how she added strips of paper to her border to make your eye roam around her page.

Art Inspiration by elitka
This layout is so sweet! I love the pops of color here, they are not ones I would think of for a baby page, but it totally works! And then she adds the clouds on the top of the design and the floating yarn at the bottom, and that is just the correct touch she needed to complete her page.

True to yourself by Shivani
I know this one won a challenge here on the blog. BUT I just could not let February go by without adding it to the Pretty Pages also. I just love the way this page flows. She has all the stars on the first side of the 2 page layout that pulls your eyes across to the second page. Then, WOW, you have the extracted photograph but what is exceptional is the way part of the far right side of the photograph is pulling away and floating off towards the border!

Beautiful pages ladies! And thank you so much for the inspiration!

Remember to keep posting your layouts to the Pink Gallery, and keep an eye here as your page could be in the spotlight next month :)

Happy Scrappin'!

ROCKING YEAR IN REVIEW ALBUM

Hello fellow scrappers! In this edition of hybrid scrapping I want to show you this album that I recently made. It's a year in review album in which I documented the highlights of 2014.

I decided to give the album a pocket page design, like a Project Life album.
I made a layout per month in Photoshop. Each page is a mix of photos, papers and journaling cards. To give my pages that extra little oomph I added a few embellishments here and there and to create a cohesive look I used the same name of the month stickers from Year In Year Out on every page.

Here are some of the pages I made, still in their digital [jpg] format.

Once I finished my 12 pages, one for every month,  I printed all of them plus the front and back covers [grey paper] and 2 orange papers for the inside of the cover.


I cut each square page and glued them to cardstock paper to strengthen my  album and give it a bit more body. Of course there's many more ways to join your pages and put your album together. Have a peek at this Pinterest board for some awesome inspiration!

Now let me show you my final result.
