Finger Pointing (August 26)

26 Aug

Another day…another series of amazing layouts…

Krystal Hartley’s camera bff

This layout is so unbelievably cute! I love how she wrote about her camera’s being BFFs, like a tag-team capturing her life. Add in the amazing layering and all the little details and you have one awesome layout.

supertwinkle’s Window Into My Heart

I love this page! Blocking, shapes and fun papers, what more could a girl ask for? What a fun idea to create a “window” into her heart, it really captures everyone who is important in her life.

star74’s The sweet files

This page is just so pretty. The combination of the teal against the brown just pops and the collection of elements here is just perfect. An amazing example of a simple yet interesting design.

Aggie’s Sacrifice

This page is just amazing. Great colors, clean design and perfect placement of all the elements. Love it!

karla gardini’s JP

The layering on this page is just amazing. All the little details and layering here are perfect. Great use of white space too, love the edged design and the way the journaling flows around the elements.

marnel’s prtcd

This page is simply stunning. The colors and photo just pop off the kraft background. Amazing!

Stephanie’s Some Days

The design of this page is gorgeous but what really shines here is the journaling. It’s so open and honest and I think we can ALL relate to having days like that.

Dani’s pink

I’m not normally a pink girl, but this page is just SO much fun. Love the scattering of elements and the way the design flows through the page.

Cristina’s Creative

Everything here is just so creative – the doodles, the design and the heartfelt journaling. Love that it looks like it could have really been handmade, it really adds to the message she’s trying to tell.

It’s me again, cruisin’ the galleries for some inspiration today….

Mommademedothis’ Seeds

This is made by a young scrapper and yes, you read it correctly, her mom made her do this LOL. I bet she will be the star of the class with her botany project. Can’t wait to see more of this awesome talent, cause this is the very first layout in her gallery and I hope there will be more to come!

Carolee’s All I Need

Such a dreamy and lovely page, love how the focus is on the title. The little scattered elements just add to that soft look.

anni89’s Taufe

My eye fell immediately on the right side, very creative border with the circled word art and elements framing the photo!

BrendaJ’s You’re CaAa-Ute!

One word. CaAa-ute!

jarkab1’s Love after Rain

Here, the extraction is just perfect, the kids are adorable under the umbrella, and the rays just make this page shine!

Maria W’s Footsteps on the moon

Look at those eyes!! Sweet, simple and stunning page!

Just Jess’ Vision Trip

I love photoless layouts, here the elements do all the ‘talking’. Neat composition, brushwork and title!

Rubia Padilha’s Free!

Expressive page with the colorful circles and the pose on the photo! And don’t you just love the titlework?

theSassyScrapper’s “These Four Men”

I love the rock and grunge mood here!! It is a very strong and bold page, and the treatment and framing of the photos is awesome. Kickin’ page!


Finger Pointing (24 August)

24 Aug

Here in the States we are gearing up or have started our first days of school. Can someone please tell me where this year has gone?


Paula Francovig’s School?

My first pick on school theme. I love every little bit of this. Check how the photo’s tone is the same as the kit. Many other great details here.


Kel’s [friends forever]

Completely attracted to the center flow.

friends forever

Jacq’s Learning is Fun!

Another great school layout. What I love most about this is a child’s joy of learning. Now that my two are in college I can tell you that they grow up and don’t always love learning.  Capture these moments and cherish them as Jacq has done!

learning is fun

Divian’s Like 2 Peas

This took my breath away. I LOVE those chandeliers – they look so touchable. Fabulous mix of elements and as always kickin shadows.

like 2 peas

ezane’s road trip

Great balance and composition. Completely captures the memories.

Kristen’s it begins

Another school layout – the black paper with spray paint – love it.

it begins

twentytinytoes Jayden & Kyra

Just sweetness and awwww factor. Orange and pink are a great combo in my book.


Babelek’s Hop

I seem to be on a center flow kick.


MariRomualdo’s Little Boat

Black is such a powerful background color to scrap with. It’s also extra hard to get shadows on black. Love the nuetral photo and bold primaries. Well done.

23 Aug

Kate here with my picks from today’s uploads. I’ve had a lovely day out in the fresh air with the family today, and now I’m chilling out surfing the galleries :) Hope you are all enjoying your weekend too!

his’s Valenica Oceanographico

This is such a fabulous page! I really like the full width photo and the smaller circular images, the element use is just perfect.

Mara Brunetta’s Us

Such a strong graphic design here, great composition with the photos on the edge of the page and I love the contrast between the black and white photos and the primary coloured elements. Zingy!

Laurakaye’s Summer Vacation 2009

An utterly beautiful summer page, the blue and yellow colour scheme is ideal and I love the candid feel to the photo. Just lovely.

mirjam’s Do You See What I See

Everything about this page is just so well executed – the strong simple design, the huge title, the perfect placement of that great photo that illustrates the story so well, and the journalling – oh, the journalling! Wonderful stuff.


karla gardini’s Passeio no rancho

So soft, so pretty, so magical, wonderfully balanced composition too.

Tracyfish’s Your Mom

The zingy lime green coupled with the black and white and that wonderfully happy photo all help to create the infectious sense of fun that this page has! I love the sentiment here too.

mimsmom’s this is me

I really like the tape frames and the repeating photo, along with the wonderfully simple “all about me” theme. A nice reminder that AAM pages needn’t be complicated!

lizzyfizzy’s my little 6th grader

There are lots of back to school pages in the galleries today, but this was the one that stood out to me. I love the fun eclectic mix of elements, the colours and the great shadowing. Great journalling too.

star74’s You

Just LOOK at the shadowing! Wow. Love the simple composition and that lovely photo. Oh and did I mention the shadowing?! Glorious!


Finger Pointing (August 22)

22 Aug

Just a couple of days until school starts here – and what fun to spend some time, going through the galleries picking out some beauties to get those creative juices flowing!  Enjoy


A boy: happiness  by OneHappyMama

I love the photo treatment on this, and the beautiful photo of her little boy with his binkie and blankie.  An everyday moment captured.

party by creme-brulee-marina

Isn’t this a darling birthday scene, with a cute photo!

Wild Flower by my3hens

This looks like you could reach right out an touch it – like a little wall nook, with all the beautiful touches.

Lise by salamandre

Wowsa – look at the photo!  Beautiful accented and displayed.  What else can I say!

Love by scrapenherbe

love how the stitching separates the photos, with the little red hearts scattered throughout.

back to school gift purse by karen bowers

What a great hybrid gift purse – just perfect!

pre-k craft by Rebecca H

This layout caught my eye right away – great patterned paper and angled photo and elements.  Love her titlework too!

siblings by Denise Umlauf

Beautiful bright background to accent the darling photo.  Just the right touch of elements too – to bring the focus where it should be – the photo

You Make Me Happy by thatyborges

Great minimalist page with focus drawn to the photo.  Just the right shadows, and the little dots look like paper piercing.
