GSO Time!


Happy July y’all.  CTM Robin here.  Do you realize that one half the year is done?  Usually I’d be sad by now since July means school is right around the corner.  But this year? I think we can all agree we want 2020 to be done and gone!! 

Where I live it’s super hot and sticky so I’m spending a good bit of time inside with the air conditioning running.  This gives me plenty of time to browse through the gallery and get some inspiration.  I usually save the layouts that catch my eye for those days that my mojo has left me and as usual, I found quite a bit of eye candy this month. I’m excited to show you!

First we have this one by sucali.  I love her paper choices and how she repeated the yellow in three different spots to keep the page balanced.  And isn’t the way she filled in one of the dots with her Summer tag ingenious?

 Next I wanted to show off Claire Grantham’s page.  This is such a fun layout!  I love her title work and the way she overlaps her frames while leaving the photos tucked behind the main, center photo.  This is such a vibrant page!

You know by now that I’m a sucker for QR codes.  It’s crazy to me that we can see video whenever we want without having to pull out a huge recorder or find the tape converter to hook to the TV (I know, I’m showing my age here!)  IntenseMagic has an amazing talent for incorporating them into her layouts in an eye catching way and this layout is no exception.  The white space really makes it easy to view the videos and makes her photos pop too.

With this virus going on in the world, a lot of us are having staycations and jesskab documents hers so well!  I love the shadowing of her title work and the way she taped her journaling card to the paper.  What a sweet page!

And last, but definitely not least, take a peek at AngelaToucan’s layout.  Her blending is fantastic and I love that she captured the action shots of the kids assembling their tent.  What a great way to take up some time on a long summer day and an even better way of preserving that moment.  I’m definitely scraplifting this page (and idea too!!)

Well that’s it for me this month.  I hope you love these GSO’s as much as I do.  Y’all stay safe, scrap plenty, and come back next month for another batch of goodies!

Monthly Blog Challenge - July 2020



Welcome to the July 2020 MBC! 

As we continue navigating through the COVID pandemic, I hope you are all safe and healthy.  If you've got extra time on your hands, I've got another great template from Liz for you. 

Before we jump into this month's template, I want to announce our winner for the June MBC.  We had 36 gorgeous layouts in June and it was so hard to choose only one.  Thank you to everyone who submitted a layout - they were all lovely!  Our winner for the June 2020 MBC coupon is...Rhonda H.  Congratulations, Rhonda!  

Now for this month's template!  Historically, I struggle with templates with circular photo spots or specialized shapes as a design feature.  I'm good with the geometric shapes we typically learn in school, but shapes like heats and stars usually challenge me.  I'm thrilled to say that this particular template was super easy for me.  I LOVE all the stars and they fit so very well with my chosen photo that I had it scrapped in no time at all.  I truly hope you enjoy this template as much as I have!

And I finished another page of my daughter's graduation album. Maybe I'll get it done before she officially starts college. Either way I'm having a lot of fun making it and looking at these older pics.
