Each week, five layouts that caught our eye will be chosen to feature as our "Most Wanted." With so many amazing layouts in the gallery, it was incredibly hard to narrow the "lineup" down to five, but here they are, in no particular order. (Please click on the title beneath the layout to take you to the layout in the gallery where you can leave the creators some comments.)
We were enchanted by the precious photo on Adrienne's page and captivated by her beautiful design. The lovely flowers are such a pretty juxtaposition with the rustic woodgrain background, and we were admired the patience and skill Adrienne's script baker's twine title must've taken. The design of Adrienne's page is just beautiful. We love the white space and the addition of those pretty birds and the little envelope tucked behind the flowers for her handwritten journaling.
Helena's photo is so sweet and so romantic. We love the artsy background with all the stamping and distressing and stitching. The wire heart is a perfect and unique accent for her page, and we love the symbolism she explained in the way she used the stitching on her page.
We are enamored by Jacynthe's sweet photos and story and how she connected her sweet childhood memory to her life today. We love the eclectic mix of patterns on Jacynthe's page and the vintage car accent and her clean design that puts the focus right on her story and photos.
Gayle's layout is so interesting to look at with all the contrasts she has included to convey her story of struggle. We love the contrasting photos and how she's included soft, lovely elements like lace and flowers and a birdcage on one side and the rougher elements like gears and cogs and a wire whisk on the other. And we love how the eye is drawn to that bold corrugated heart that conveys the love Gayle has for her daughter.
Debbi's photographs are just beautiful, and she has displayed them so beautifully! The papers she chose seem made just for them, and how striking they look against the dark background! Mostly we love Debbi's journaling which combines a mix of facts and feelings about the destination, making us all want to travel to Annecy!
And just because there were too many fantastic layouts in the gallery, here are a few more that caught our eye.
We think Felicity's photo is absolutely adorable, and how cute and funny is the caption to go with it! We love Felicity's design and how all the beautiful elements cascade down the page, and her distressing is simply superb!
Hilda has such an interesting concept here! We love the grid design and how she's embellished each part of the grid with sweet symbols showing the love of her soon-to-be three children. So many delightful embellishments, like the button-filled embossed flower frame, the trio of hearts, the ledger tag with the birthdates of her children, and the lovely stamped tags that hold her journaling. This is a perfect example that you don't need photos to tell a beautiful story!
Helen's story of her parents captivated us. What a story! She chose the perfect photograph to tell this amazing story. What a beautiful testament to her parents she has created. We love the mix of simplicity and homespun elegance Helen has created with her design.
We love Jennifer's photos! There's a cozy warmth that perfectly conveys the sweet story she so brilliantly wrote through the five senses. We adore Jennifer's layering and all the repetitionof the circles that moves your eye around the page, and the tape measure border is a perfect accent for this page.
What a dreamy and magical layout by Angelica! We love the story she told and how she sybolically nestled her sweet niece in the soft gauze and surrounded her with a fairy and lovely flowers and vines. The journaling and pen wrapped up with a pretty silk ribbon is a brilliant addition to Angelica's magical page!
