PRETTY PAGES FROM THE PINK REPTILE GALLERY | by KAREN


Hi everyone!
Here we are at the end of May – I don’t know about you, but it has been a very busy month – we had a wedding, short trips, many school functions and a small car accident that was more painful in dealing with insurance companies than the actual crash itself (no one was injured at all – car was a write off…) And finally, this weekend a workshop for teaching literacy to adults. So plenty of scrapbooking subjects but no time to actually sit down and scrap!
Luckily for me, I can indulge by admiring the works of others and pass on the gems I have found – so many talented people!

Firstly, such a fun page using one of my favourite kits. Girls Day by @Heidi Nicole has the perfect photos for the ‘Silly’ kit. Love the floral background with the painted border so much! Having the black and white photos as well as the colour photos adds so much pop! A subtle design feature the colourful number stamp running vertically besides the photos and the yellow sprinkles in the centre that ties all the photos together so well.



Next we have a sweet page from@Love it Scrap it, Birthday 2015 for Dakota. I would never have thought to use Tales of Spring for a birthday page but it works so well for a darling girl. The floral theme is picked up on the birthday cake (looks sooo yummy) and the central bunny is so cute and funky, a perfect touch. If you look carefully, the 3 beautiful white butterflies are used to bring the classic triangle design feature to a square template and along with the foliage softens the page. Gorgeous!



Lastly we have a page with such clever title work. Sewing Mends the Soul by @Cinderella is a photoless page that any craft enthusiast will appreciate! Please check out the title work, no alphas there, just clever use of elements, stitches and the tag used in this month’s challenge to make a tile that suits the pages theme perfectly. I could see a real life framed version of this working in a sewing room. Time for a bit of scraplifting of that idea I think! The more I study this page, the more I find to love – the needle and thread along the split between the two different papers, the subtle stamp on the left, the stitching, scissors and tape along the top – all makes up a very cool page.



Thanks everyone for making such wonderful pages to inspire us all. Don’t forget to play along with this months challenge and I look forward to seeing more of your creations ext month – love and hugs, Karen x
