Finger Pointing- 25th of November

25 Nov

Hi everyone!

We are nearing towards the end of the month, which means thanksgiving is coming. Happy Thanksgiving in advance to all our US citizen scrappers. I know you guys are busy preparing so I won’t take most of your time but I hope you are inspired with all the pages that I picked for today. This is Beth aka kewl_jive bringing you today’s fabulous standouts.

magic by Sokee
This looks simple but really amazing! Love the use of white space and how she used the frame stitches and also the little elements here. The photo treatment is perfect for the page and the font she used. Everything works fabulously.

Happiness by Laura Wilson
This is so quirky, so creatively done! I love everything about this page including the Kraft alpha. Awesome shadow works on the flowers and string. Tree of happiness indeed. Such a fun, happy and amazing page.

Beautiful by Jenn H.
Feels like I can touch the page, love the big flowers and the lace underneath and all the elements she used here are placed beautifully. I totally agree on what she said, this is just a wonderful reminder. So many amazing details here including the banners, laces and stitches, it really adds beauty to the page. Love the balance she created on the layout and all the papers she used.

The Tree! by mimisgirl
I love family tradition and this really caught my eyes in the gallery. The gold and red accents really stood up. I love the journaling too, every tree has a story. We also have our own way of putting up the tree and we make sure that the whole family is around. Awesome clustering work and the bokeh on the photo. Such a festive event. Great job!

I Am Enough by Scrapaholic09
Awesome altered page, amazing use of elements, the wings, pony like creature and the written words are perfect.

It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas by Lizziet5
Gorgeous ornaments! Awesome crisp photo, I just love the flow of the page, and all the dotted swirls, dollies, and everything here. The brushworks are placed perfectly. Love the off frame and the vintage stuff underneath the photo and yes it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Thanks for taking a peek at the layouts I’ve chosen for today. Should you have time, please stop by and give them some well deserved love in the galleries.

Have a nice day/night!

Finger Pointing – November 24

24 Nov

In the US, Thanksgiving is this week…a time to reflect on our lives and really focus on the things we are thankful for.  Here in Denver, it’s COLD…but thankfully, not as miserable as Upstate New York.  So, to honor those buried under piles of SNOW, I thought I’d showcase some layouts featuring great wintery photos.

1.  Rawr: Pull out the sweaters by scrapsandsass – Let’s just start us off today with this AMAZING shot.  I’m hoping it was taken at the zoo or with an extremely long lens…not sure I want to know how close you’d have to get to capture that guy.  Gorgeous shot and I love the colors used in the LO.

2. Christaly-Snowflake Christmas by Corelle- Awwww…I love babies all wrapped up for playing out in the snow.  Kinda reminds me of my favorite holiday movie – A Christmas story…you know, the part where the mom bundles up Randy and he can’t put his arms down?  Anyways…slight side tangent, so back to the LO.  I love the pop of red of the hat.

3. Snowy Holidays Bundle by Palvinka- WOW…gorgeous photo…gorgeous girl and I especially love the clustering work.

4. Winter Wonderland by jetje- What a great day documented.  I know that shooting in the winter can be tough, but not only are the photos great, I can just imagine how fun the day was.

5. Let it Snow by Kim21673 – first of all, I LOVE the photo…love it in Black and white…and I especially love the non traditional colors used.  The title is awesome, as is the cluster of elements.

6. Sweet Joy by Ann06- I’m a HUGE fan of the use of water coloring  techniques in digital scrapbooks.  It’s so cozy, so nostalgic…I’m picturing myself now on a blustery day with cookies and hot cocoa in front of the fire.

Finger Pointing – November 23 th

23 Nov

Hi everyone, Margje here to bring some gallery beauties I found today! And because of that we had no posts past days,  I decided to bring you some pages extra! So let’s get to them right away!

I’m starting with this cute little kitty page  Too Cute! By tansy  What a sweetie! Love the circle and the splashes in the background (that matches the color of the photo perfectly) and the loop behind the frame! Not to forget to mention the beautiful watercolor flower, that gives it that fragile look! Also the title in the loop is awesome! I love indeed!

Oh my Vivi! By tiffanyfisher10  Love how everything pops against the chalkboard background here! The glitter-y gold title is awesome and that photo is so sweet! The fun doodled border on the edge makes it all complete! What a lovely page to look at!

Apple pie by Monique1971 Love the creativity of that sticker of herself! That looks totally awesome! The background and the colors are pretty wonderful too! A true standout for me! I think that apple pie was awesome too!

Santa Hat by hillareyd  The color palette here is great! All those silvery bits stand out on it, making the cute photo’s pop! Love the filmstrips and the heading! It had to be on my list for today!

Finger Pointing – November 20

20 Nov

Hello, everyone! Katherine here on this SUPER cold Thursday with my round of picks from the galleries! I really hope that you enjoy my choices!

While I LOVE the STELLAR design in geek_girl’s  ”Moment,” as well as the blues, pinks, and greens against the neutral background, the layering and clustering, and the ink splatters and brushwork, it was the super ADORABLE photo that caused me to choose this one as a Standout! I really LOVE how much happiness that shines through in that image, seriously … so stinking CUTE!

Moment

I really love the color palette in this next Standout titled Fierce & Determined by scrapsandsass. Her struggle and will to overcome is so wonderfully documented here. So terribly sorry for your trouble and I am wishing you bunches and BUNCHES of success in your ability to overcome it!

Fierce & Determined

Up next is this super lovely Project Life like three page spread by Tanderson titled Week in the Life | Sunday | Page 1, 2, and 3 (only page 1 is linked). All three pages are nothing short of breathtaking. LOVE all of the images here, such wonderful captures, every single one of them. And I really LOVE all of the text, adds a TON of visual interest to the overall design of the spread.

Such a super cute design in bjc’s some of the things i am grateful. LOVE the title work … “These 10 Things” … and the use of all the journal cards is brilliant! A truly wonderful way to document those things that she is grateful for!

Up next is another Project Life like three page spread titled Silly Pictures 1, 2, and 3 (only page 1 is linked) by Tinkelbel. Truly, those are the some of the cutest images (and yes, I am “stealing” the idea for my next family get together!)! Really, really LOVE the design and how many images she was able to fit across the three pages. The color palette is perfect too!

Rounding out my choices this evening is this beauty by JenEm titled Reflect. Really love the pairing of the triangles and the hexagons. I also love how the reds and greens pop against that neutral background. Beautiful, just beautiful!

Reflect

That’s all for me. I’ll see you all in the galleries again real soon. Blessings to all of you! XO

Finger Pointing – November 19

19 Nov

Hello everyone!! It’s getting pretty chilly here in my part of Northern-East Japan. How about your part of the world? I heard some places are covered in thick snow?! Be safe and be warm!!! No better way to spend a cold day in than to browse for beautiful pages in galleries. Time for some scrap inspiration! Hope you enjoy those pages like I do!

Orlando Sunset by CindyB  - Gorgeous display for this wonderful sunset photo! Look at those colors! I love the big photo mask and the framing/cluster over it. I like that it doesn’t actually frame the photo but add a beautiful accent to it and the flow of it all is simple delightful.

Autumn Sonata by thimbleberrie  - Here too I love the fall colors. And what especially caught my eyes is the roughness of the background that goes so well with the photos, the theme. Love the chevron paper and those cute little leaves here and there that match so nicely the photos. Great design!

My 3> (heart) by jaye - What a beautiful masculine page! Loooove that background with those colorful paper bits and elements! I can find all that I love on this page and that’s why I was drawn to it: brushes, stitches, messy thread, sequins spread. Great shadowing too!

Fall Puppy Fun by mungerre - A-DO-RA-BLE!!! Doesn’t this puppy looks like he’s been doing some kind of mischief and got caught? lol So cute!! But back to the design, I love how the photo is displayed and the difference in opacity of some of the parts/papers. Love the crafty look of the background and the messy doodle border. Very sweet cluster/titling too. I really love how the photo pops so nicely. I want that puppy!!!! Oh sorry, got carried away! lol

Right Here by lcpereyra - What a beautiful and stylish layout we have here! I love the vintage feel to it and the use of the patterned paper. Also love how she blended the photo to the post card element. Great flow in the small bits too. The shadows are wonderful: can you see how the shadow under the lace goes? It’s not flat. It goes up and down as the lace was making waves like it would probably be on a real scrap page. Awesome!

Trierer Dom by Adrianka - And finally this wonderful double page (if you click on the image you will be able to go to her gallery and see the 2 pages too in bigger size ;) ). I like to see scenery pages a lot cause, well, I don’t have kids so my photos are a lot of scenery, sightseeing photos and I like to get inspired in how I can display them. I love the perfect color match here and the lovely pink color touch. The lace border in 2 colors are also a great accent. The flower clusters are present but yet not invading the page and I like that. Very inspiring.
