Hello everyone! I am popping in early this week to help out one of the other finger pointers. :) I had a great time in the galleries this am and I have added some more kits to my wishlist..that always happens when I browse the galleries. lol I so hope you like my choices for today!!

Us! by juhh

This is simply amazing! I adore the design on the edges and seriously those shadows are totally awesome! That picture is beyond precious as well.

True Love by GeVisacri

The composition of this page is amazing! I love a page that uses fabulous papers and this is one of those pages! The layering is perfection here.

Those Neighbors by Cristina

This page totally cracked me up! You have to read the story and get a good giggle! The design was perfect for the telling of the story!

Special Sister by Windgefluester

This is so pretty and sweet! A perfect sister page I think! I of course adore all the pink and the clustering above the journaling is the perfect touch!

School Morning by joannebrisebois

I adore this! I love the use of space and I love the use of the elements in the story telling! Really well done!

halo by velomba

It’s no secret that pink and gray is one of my fave color combos! I just love the balance between them. That was what immediately drew me to this page but then I feel in love with the precious photos and the awesome paper blocking!

Family Delights by jenn33199

This page screams fall and warmth. It is so so pretty! The layering of the gorgeous flowers and leaves is just beautiful!

Dare to Dream by LelaFleet

Lela has amazing skill when it comes to using space. She is truly a master! I adore the scattering of the circles on this and the little piccie up in the corner. Just fantastic!

{india} by Kayleigh

I adore this page! The colors really pop and coordinate beautifully with the photo! The stitching holding everything down is perfectly Kayleigh and I love it!

Finger Pointing – September 28th

29 Sep

Happy Tuesday…and what a truly happy Tuesday it is for me. For anyone who has been following my little dead laptop drama (ok, yes…I realize that might only be me), I am so glad to report that my beloved computer has made it home from the repair depot and actually appears to be working this time. Third time is the charm, I guess! So, tonight all is well in my corner of the virtual world as I share these Standouts with you.

 

October Fun by cindy732003
This layout is a wonderful example of why Cindy is one of my favorite scrappers: masterful layering, beautiful photos and a great eye for composition. Superb work as always!

 

Drifting by maghenrey
I love the sense of drama in this piece. The cool metal elements, use of lyrics and fun cast shadows make for a very appealing page.

 

Crazy Dreams by yogovonne
There were so many fun pages in the galleries today with this kit, but this one was my particular favorite for the awesome freestyle feel. Great use of pattern and whimsy in this one!

 

Stories by christinas
I am drawn to centered composition with a strong focal photo, so this layout really grabbed me. The unique perspective in the pic along with the bright yellow and cute details make for a super page!

 

Sisters by Chance by groovyjellybean
Ah – a fantastic minimalist hand here along with a stellar photo! The lens flare and silhouettes really rock, as do the simple details of the elements. Love it!

 

Favorite Things by tania
I find this layout quite swoonworthy for the excellent composition and heartfelt sentiment. The bold title work is very eye-catching as well. Tania does a great job with capturing slices of life in all of her pages!

 

Anytime Fun by g6scrapped
This layout makes great use of the papers to creatively tuck in the BBQ elements. I love the daring use of patterned paper here as well- she totally pulls it off! This page is just so fun and interesting, quite the homage to the grill!

 

love by schneeflocke
This is so romantic and gorgeous!! The beautiful pic really pops against that black. This is a great example of some of the modern alternatives for wedding albums too.

 

Caramba by tigra
The use of the magnifying glass in this scene is so clever! I just adore how it frames the scene in such an unexpected way. Lovely use of color and blending here as well.

 

That’s all from me tonight! I’ll see you here next week. In the mean time, I have months of pent-up scrapping mojo. I’m off to create some layouts and I hope you are too!

That Moment by emmasmom

Fun design with the circles and word art. And it helps if the photo AND subject are too cute :-)

Alone by anubis1

Very emotive piece with the broken heart and the moody colorscheme, by distancing the subject from the background makes it even more powerful.

Loving the use elements instead of words in the journaling and the clustering around the photo. LOVE!

the birth of Apple computers by valeriapiemonte

Did I mention I’m a big sucker for bold and eye-catching pages? Hmmm this is no exception, awesome titlework here.

Finger Pointing (Sept 23)

23 Sep

Helloooo all!!  It is raining and dreary where I am today….  But I’ve decided to have the weather dictate, and made myself a cup of tea and decide on doing a little gallery surfing.   and wow…. I was so delighted with all of the creativity I found!  Check them out.

 

This is incredible!  It popped straight out of the gallery, screaming come and take a closer look.  And look I did, this looks like it came straight out of a magazine. What a perfect ‘ad’ for a baby or parenting magazine.  LOVE the crossing out of different ‘things’ and the focus on the most important one of all!

JMT 19 Sep Babies need … by sam ellis

 

This photography is amazing!  Great use of aperture, focusing be the cookie and let the photography ‘tell’ what the story.  And to continue telling the story is the “quote”  What a wonderful documentation of real life.

Love the things you see by AllisonWaken

 

I love the beautiful soft look to the graphic picture, and the use of a scroll type font and swirly brushwork.  It has such a beautiful romantic feel!!

INTROSPECTIVE by bkathitownz

 

I LOVE how ‘real’ this layout looks… like an actual paper scrapbook page.  The shadowing is incredible, and I LOVE all of the snipettes and strips of papers.

pieces of my life by sportay24

 

Even through all of the color, patterns and texture, the photos remain the focal point of this layout.  LOVE the mixture of bl n wh and color to draw your eye inward.

Sugarshock by luzaine

 

LOVE the the clean lines and feel to this page!  And the orange frame is an amazing centerpiece to make the photo shine.

words………..by Sokee

 

I can feel of the wind on the page… almost like a fall breeze.  The layout looks so incredible, split into different sections,  the journaling is perfect thing to tie them all together!

Falling Leaves by doti40

 

What incredible layout out design and use of pattern paper!! AND, I am TOTALLY lovin’ how the photos go off the edge a bit on each side.  Wonderful journaling too!

Change by Ebony

 

I am in the middle of a legacy project right now, (scrapbooking some older photos and letters), and this was a wonderful example of how to showcase something those items.  I LOVE the realism to the page, it’s almost as if I could reach out and ‘feel’ everything on the page!
