Top Ten Layouts 2012

Duh, it's that time of year again.
I admit it - it's dead hard to pick ten favourites - each and every layout means something for me!
But I have made my choice, and will give you my personal favourites. OK, I give you twelve - I couldn't narrow further down *lol*

---------------

But first - some news regarding this blog: from January 1th 2013 it will not be updated anymore. But fear not - I'll have a brand new one: 

From January 1th 2013 my blog will be Hilde - The Paper Addict.

I'm still working on the details, but the blog is open for you to have a sneek peek and to sign in as a follower. From mid January I will close the old Scoobie-blog for new comments, but the blog will still be there.

OK, back to business. Here are my ten twelve personal favourites. They all have one thing in common, I really enjoy the design, so there are more to them  for me, which I'll explain under each image. And I don't list manufactorers this round. The layouts are presented  chronological:



You really don't need much to create a layout: a dog, some snow, a black cardstock, two pieces of scrap papers and two embellies. I love the orange on black! A just for fun layout, inspired by "use two papers only" at the Basic Grey blog.


The inspiration to the title work came from an image of a cuuuuute kitten with the same caption. Love how it turned out with this photo of my brother making a silly face. This is also how I want to remember my brother who died in June - a fun dude. A just for fun layout, published in ScrapStreetMagazine


I admit it - I'm attracted to simple designs. I wanted to keep focus on DS10 admiring a glass he had blown himself, and the embillshements used here was just what I needed. DT work for MyScrapbookNook


Over the years I have learned to know a lot of great scrappers, and one of them is Petra.
I hardly use mist or paint on my creations, but in this layout it turned out great, together with hand cut flowers and another few embellishments. Cool colors, too. This layout was made for a recipe challenge.

I'm not a girl who likes mess, and I surely do not have the patiente to let wet mediums dry. But on occations I do, and I love the structure modelling paste adds. This is my first try with it. DT work for OUAS



I often grab neutral papers for backgrounds, but some times it's fun to do the oposite: use busy papers as background and neutral ones for the rest. In my oponion, the green letters are what really makes this layout pop!

In August I was forced to work with color challenges as part of the OUAS DT, when they teamed up with the color Challenge blog CSI. And I was immidiately hooked :-) I had always been afraid of never having the perfect shades of the colors, but I always have close ones, at least in some accents as ribbons etc. My entry for an CSI challenge


Soft colors and a hairy husband - the perfect combo! But one of the CSI challenges gave me the guts to try it out :-)

A happy kid need happy colors. My entry for a sketch challenge at Skissedilla


Black background makes bright colors pop. And I stamped on a layout! Yeah, me!

I love how light this layout is, despite the dark purple and green. Made for a CSI challenge.
 


Shabby chick, white space layout with a twist of artsy - it's possible :-)

  Don't ask me if I can pick one fav, because I can't. Can you? And why did you pick that particular one?
Have you picked your own favs yet?


Tomorrow I'll give you my top ten fav cards/AI for 2012, so please come back!

Patricia Roebuck sa...

Wow! You really stretched your creativity! Love that. Okay I love them all but I have to pick the one of your brother. That one just touched me. Hoping you are having a wonderful holiday. Can't wait to see what you are up to in 2013!

Sherri sa...

So much diversity in your layout style Hilde. I think my Top 10 will look similar with no real distinct repeating designs from one to the next. I love that black background one the best I think followed closely by You and Me. I think I love you and me so much because it reminds me of the Nook and all the sweet friendships that were made there. I am so very grateful to have met you through them. I really look forward to "growing up in scrappyness" with you my dear friend. Your surprise Xmas card really, really touched me. My favourite gift of the season by far.

Kate Vickers sa...

I love your layouts, Hilde! I really like the one of your son (?) parasailing. Looks like he had a lot of fun doing that and your layout captured his joy really well.

Cassandra aka Scrap Savvy sa...

Hilde these are all wonderful! I could not just pick one either. I love your sense of design, humour and the diversity of your layouts. Best wishes for 2013!)

Ali sa...

I always enjoy your LOs Hilde. I particularly love your 'simple' style. You have a great eye for balance and colour! My fav of your favs is DIY. Simply perfect :)

Chloe :-) sa...

Absolutely beautiful!! Your style is so versatile! I can't pick a favourite either .. but I do love the big bow on the last one! Gorgeous! I've just done a post of my favs for 2012 too :D :D

Chantal Vandenberg sa...

Oh these are all brilliant! I can't possibly pick a fave! They are amazing.

LindaSS sa...

Helt herlig nydelig Hilde.. så kult... :D Å velge en favoritt her blir vanskelig... Men den 18 ting å gjøre topper nok listen.. :D

Camilla Ekman sa...

Gott Nytt År, Hilde! Vilka underbara kreationer du gjort!

Anna Sigga sa...

WOW! You sure know how to create layouts using so many different styles!
My fave is the Sletteröyene - it is so flippin cool and totally you!

Bente Fagerberg sa...

Åh så mange fine og spesielle öyeblikk du har fanget her Hilde. Jeg blir ofte så glad av dine lo's for mange av dem har en egensinnig humor bakom. Og etter å ha hatt gleden å få treffe deg i virkeligheten vet jeg att du har en god porsjon ekte norsk humor!! Du har en litt spretten stil og kan lage veldig forskjellige verk. Jeg liker veldig godt '18 ting' og 'Scoobie 8', men skulle kunne velge mange flere favoritter her!
Godt Nytt-Års klem till deg Hilde!

Carol sa...

Kerryn sa...

Love the projects you have chosen!! My favourite would have to be the first one. I'm a sucker for cute dogs :).
