Putting the Spotlight on Superior Layouts

Posted by ElsieB

Welcome to the CT Spotlight, a regular feature in which the CT will put the spotlight on superior layouts that have caught our eye in the gallery.  We'll show you the layouts, tell you who made them and why we love them.  The first CT member quoted is the one who chose the layout for the Spotlight.

Check out these amazing creations recently spotted in the gallery!

"Portraits of You"
by bee-charmers


MamaK321 says:
"I like this layout by bee-charmers.  Her photos are adorable and I like how they are side by side, much like a filmstrip.  The blocks of patterned paper at the bottom balance the photos nicely."

Janet says:
"Pink and red are always a great color combination.  I love the line of photos and the tags."

Lillpop says:
"Love the pink and black - two fantastic colors!"

LoveMyBella says:
"I really like the charms hanging from the jump rings and ribbon!   The pictures are adorable!  Who doesn’t love a girl dressed in Gymboree?"

Lindsay says:
"Good use of pattern paper and I really like the dangling embellishments."

n7zuq says:
"I love the photos, from the close-up to the almost full body shot. They pull you in and show many different sides of this beautiful girl."

"Rose's Face"
by claritee


Lillpop says:
"I love the circle and the flowers.  The pictures and the paper go perfectly together - just an overall fantastic layout!"

Janet says:
"Love the color combination and the circles that focus our attention of that cute little girl!"

LoveMyBella says:
"This is one amazing foray into scrapping layouts.  Just as stunning as every one of her cards.  Beautiful."

Lindsay says:
"I like how the circle makes your eye follow the line to take in both pictures. Great overall design!"

n7zuq says:
"I love the colors of the layout and how the circle draws you in to the darling photos. The ribbons and flowers add just the perfect touch to the design."

"3 Cousins @ Play"
by clairbug


Dianedi says:
"I love this one by Clairbug. I love the design and the flow of motion that she has created. All of the geometric elements (circles, stars, and even doodles) flow together perfectly! Just love it!"

Janet says:
"I love the colors, the corner embellishments (doodling) and the stars and circles.  It all comes together for a fabulous layout!"

ditzyscrap says:
"Shapes are hot right now, and this layout uses them perfectly, bringing the full focus in to the photo and title. Keeping the rest of it simple balances it all out, with perfect little touches."

Lillpop says:
"Such a fresh layout!  The geometric shapes are perfect with the picture!"

LoveMyBella says:
"I love the stars along the circular arrow!  And that photo is sure to be treasured by those 3 cousins in the years to come."

Lindsay says:
"I like how the circle frames the photo and goes along with the spinning picture of the kids on the tire."

n7zuq says:
"I love the photo and how the circle arrow draws you in on the children. The doodles and other shapes add to the playful feeling of this design."

"You Are My Sunshine"
by hwillard


wags says:
"I love this one by hwillard.  The colors and elements are darling.  I love the title placement right on the picture.  The composition is so eye-pleasing."

Janet says:
"I love the photo, the title on the photo and the border of flowers.  Exceptional!"

Lillpop says:
"Love the colors and the sun!  Makes me wish summer was here."

Lindsay says:
"So soft and light, like the border work at the bottom!"

n7zuq says:
"I love the black and white photo with the subdued colors. The border of flowers and brighter title add to sunny feel of the layout."

ditzyscrap says:
"I love the colors of this layout. The layering of papers behind the photos with the minimal embellishments is the perfect balance."

"See Where the Road Takes You…"
by bluejeans7


Janet says:
"I love this one by bluejeans7.....Love the pics, the simple arrangement of the pics and the title...kind of touching, actually!"

ditzyscrap says:
"I love the arrangement of the photos in different sizes, combined with the repetition of the one pattern and brads to accent it. The quote on the page is incredible, and is perfect for those photos!"

wags says:
"Those pictures are just amazing.  The arrangement is perfect!"

Lillpop says:
"The photos are amazing.  The layout really makes you focus on those."

LoveMyBella says:
"Just adorable!  The photo of Erik 'returning home' with that great smile on his face is one of the many things that make this layout outstanding."

Lindsay says:
"A simple and classic layout with heavy emphasis on the photos.  With pictures like that, you don’t need much more!"

n7zuq says:
"I love the arrangement of the photos that lead you away and then pull you back. The photos show perfectly the road to discovery and the happy return home."

"Meeting Yogi"
by TNscrappinmom


TRScrapper says:
"I love this because of that wonderful picture of Yogi's face right in the middle. It really pops off the page! I also love the colors. Great job!"

Janet says:
"Perfect color choices, love the diagonal lines!"

LoveMyBella says:
"Too cute!  Those papers look like they were made for a visit with Yogi.  I really like the flowers and the head shot of Yogi."

Lindsay says:
"What absolutely perfect papers for these pictures, a spot on match. Yogi really comes to life in these shots!"

n7zuq says:
"I love the colors of this page. The colors really make the photos pop and the close-up of Yogi catches you eye."

"Discover Nature"
by scrapsakes


TRScrapper says:
"I'm not even sure where to begin with this layout. I love so many things about it! I love the button frame around the larger photo. I love all the circles. I love the white print journaling. I love how the letters and 'discover' tag are stitched on. There is just so much to look at and so much to love here!"

Janet says:
"Wow!!  The photo of your 2 men really draws your eye to the bird!  Very cool page."

Lindsay says:
"Simply beautiful, freestyle is very popular right now and there’s just the right mix of elements. Stunning work!"

n7zuq says:
"I love the buttons around the large photo and how its placement makes you look at what they are looking at. I love the swirls and the carefree feel of the layout."

ditzyscrap says:
"This layout has so many eye catching details! I love the repetition of circles throughout the layout, it keeps your eye moving so you can see everything, and ties it all together at the same time."

"Peek"
by FurBaby_Mom


LoveMyBella says:
"The photo is darling! Each circle seems to bring your eyes right back to the amazing photo."

Lindsay says:
"Perfect design with all of the circles that follow the theme of the picture."

n7zuq says:
"This photo is incredible with the circles and vivid color that bring your focus in on this darling boy. The circles on the side help reinforce the feel of the giant tubes and make it seem like you are there playing with him."

ditzyscrap says:
"The large photo is definitely the focus on this layout, and she tied it together with the rest of the layout perfectly by continuing on with the circles. Great job of framing the subject using his surroundings, too!"

"Mummy's Boy"
by gemma clarke


Lindsay says:
"What I love: It just screams boy, good use of elements without going over the top, love all of the little pictures."

TRScrapper says:
"These colors are fantastic!  All boy and they really make the layout stand out.  I love the distressed looking hearts too."

"El Rosario"
by mayerkt


n7zuq says:
"The photos are incredible with their sharp focus and detail. I love the photo collage design around the larger photo and the matching colors of the layout."

TRScrapper says:
"Absolutely stunning!  The photos, particularly the main close-up of the butterfly, are fantastic.  I have always wanted to visit this place and now I am even more determined to go someday!"

Keep scrapping everyone!
