Default Share your 2018 favorite page you created

So as the year comes to a close.... I thought it would be fun to share your favorite page (or two) that you created in 2018.

If you could share a few thoughts on why it is your fav that would be great too. Maybe it is the color, the composition, the stunning kit, a difficult page you conquered, a new technique, something outside the box or maybe just a photo that makes you smile... whatever the reason, please tell us.

I look forward to seeing your pages and reading why they made your favs list.

Oh Melinda, I had NO idea how much I scrapped this year!! Too many pages in the gallery of layouts!!

First, this one is currently my Facebook Header and has been for quite some time. No other layout has topped it, so maybe this is my favorite--or it makes an amazing Facebook Header! The photo I took of a hummingbird at Helen Hunt Falls. It was the most perfect photo at the right time! I had this photo as my screensaver for months! When I saw this kit, Great Outdoors: Earth Friendly Bundle by Kristin Cronin-Barrow I knew it would be perfect to scrap this photo. What I had no idea is how it would complete the photo so perfectly!


But I'd have to say IN my gallery, this might be my favorite layout because (1) it's my favorite place to live - Washington, DC especially during the Cherry Blossom season (2) I love the colors of this layout. It's bright, cheerful and happy! (3) There are not a lot of Cherry Blossom layouts and this layout using Hanami: Bundle by Grace Lee made me so excited the day she released it that I had to buy it!!

Of the layouts that I posted, this layout is probably my favorite. I had scrapped these photos before but was never happy with the layout. I bought the BIM Neverland kit quite a while back with these photos in mind and finally scrapped them with it. I've had a bit of a scrapping slump this year, so at least I got this one checked off the list!

Both are my top favorite kits. The first was a scraplift and I have never been so proud of a layout. It was even featured on the SSD Pinterest board ( it completely boosted my confidence) and the second I love the picture and the cluster came together so easy .. My last few layouts have been quite an improvement over where I started Jan 2018.

Thank you! I have to show y'all. This was my first layout; Feb of this year. I am always so unsure of myself and it is a good mojo boost to hear the positive feedback

I have two I made early in 2018

The first one I love because I'm a sucker for big clusters and they're so fun to make when the flowers are so gorgeous.




And this one is a journaling page, and I just love to challenge myself. Normally I hate journaling.

That is difficult! Even for me, considering I only did a few pages this year...





The fact I usually don't add text to my pages and choose between two pages that I made 'big' texts is funny.

It's soooo hard to pick just one, but if I must, it's this one:


I love our photos and the kit is perfectly matching the template!

I also love all the double pages I have made, mostly with Cindy's templates, this one in particular:

This is a hard one as I have several favorites just for different reasons so I guess I'll share a few?! Lol..

I love this one b/c I created it without a template and that's something very challenging for me, although practice makes perfect and I'm getting better at it all the time!



This one b/c I love how pink it is and my sweet sweet baby. Oh how I wish I could go back and revisit those baby days one in awhile! (but not all the time b/c poopy diapers and sleepless nights... nah)



and this one b/c I so rarely scrap photos from my own childhood, mainly b/c they're not scanned in and I have a hard time matching vintage photos with kits I like but THIS kit from Ru and Melissa is just perfect!

This one since I'm not really a journaler but love how this one came out:


And this one because I love the kit colors and the use of the cut file:

This is mine! It just feels "like me" because it's layered and messy colorful and it's a note to my daughter for her 14th birthday and the journaling has meaning to me.

Oh, that's a tough one!! I have several favorites.

I love this one because I've wanted to start working on my boys' scrapbooks for a while now, and was so happy to get this title page done


This one because it was so fun to do - mimicking the mosaic on the stairs


This one because I just think it came out beautifully

2018 was a low volume year for scrapping, but this is my favorite

I've had computer troubles, but think I am back up and running. I am going back and catching up on posts that I missed. I am loving this thread and all the wonderful pages! So much inspiration! I can't wait to see your pages in 2019!

Thanks for sharing your favs with me. I love reading your thoughts on your pages too.

I love this. Here are a few of my favorites...

I love the composition of this one. And that big heart is one of my all time favorite elements - I love any reason I can find to use it (it's from an old paper cut file by Lauren Grier and Penny Springmann)


I love the kit in this one and it is one of my fav photos of my nephew and me.


I just love everything about this one.

I didn't scrap as much during 2018 as during previous years (mostly due to exhaustion, I've had some health-related problems). I wish that my creative mojo was like it used to be, and hopefully with time it will improve again.

My favourite layout of the year was this one. I love metallic accents, and the finished layout was pretty close to how I envisioned it in my mind. I created most of this layout at a cafe one afternoon, sipping tea and relaxing - I like the feelings it conjures up.

This one. The photo is of my then 5 week old leaving the hospital after having meningitis so it's a page close to my heart
