Finger Pointing (March 28)

28 Mar

Hi everyone! This is Tracie Stroud, and I’m so excited to be pointing some fingers for the first time!  I had a blast going through layout galleries, but it was so difficult to narrow these down! There are some amazing layouts out there! If you haven’t surfed through any galleries lately, I encourage you to go do it and leave some love.

Summer by Patti

This layout popped right out at me. The soft blues and greens are such a soothing palette, and Patti’s depth and use of shadows is fantastic.


Ready for summer by MommaTrish

LOVE this layout! What a fantastic list layout. The frames are a perfect way to separate the various lists and draw your eye, and the little bugs are just too cute.


all i need by Anna.Paula

This layout says so much with just a few words. What a beautiful way to express the importance of our loved ones.


Beach by Crissy

This layout takes me straight to a peaceful, quiet, relaxing place. I love the soft colors and the use of the graphic stamps, and the title work is perfect.


A Beautiful Life by duniascrap

Isn’t this layout gorgeous? I love the bright pops of color, the strips of paper, the title, and that photo is just precious! I could go on and on!


No More Tube by tanyariley

This layout gives us both a fantastic read and a great challenge. I loved reading about her family giving up TV. It’s a rare thing these days, and she documented it beautifully.


Coelhinho da Páscoa by Gizele Petrelli

What a lovely layout! I love how the strips of paper bring your eye straight to the photo, making it the main focus of the layout.


{when?} by sascedar

This layout just blew me away when I saw it. I absolutely adore the photo blending effect and the use of halftone to create visual interest. The journaling touches my mother’s heart as well. It perfectly captures how quickly time goes by, growing our babies up before we’re ready for it.


Down and Derby by iJenny

The clever title and quirky use of elements and papers drew me to this layout right away. What a fun way to document a parent’s pride over a child’s accomplishments!


Finger Pointing (March 27)

27 Mar

Squeal!! It is me Anne of Alamo again! Did ya miss me? I had a mini vacation of fun with the family to the bay area here in California and it was a wet and crazy time.  I am relaxed and ready to scrap, especially after a few hours cruising through the galleries of Digi-Land!

Bodie by sucali

The gold bits and fun little elements repeated made this page stand out to me.  I really love the bright and crisp pictures!

Sunday Postcard Art – WH|ITE by Two Dresses Studio

You can stare and stare at this  beauty and keep seeing  something new.   I am awed by the white on white and the dazzling brown!

Men at Work by Jenny79

Okay,  I admit it, little boys and working with tools draw me every time! His cheeks and his intense focus in the photo just made me smile, and to see all the fun thematic elements all around so perfect makes this page just all around wonderful.

Spider trap – Pier by irishgull

The blend and the extraction are all done so magically and give such a superb balance to the grungy and rusty pieces.

Play Lego by Leandi

Definitions done so superbly! I love them scattered throughout the page along with the bits of Lego pieces!

Little Black Dress by susieq2u

That faded pink text in the date and the word art just bring  the whole page to compliment everything on the page.  I am mucho impressed with  all the alphas and fonts that went into this page.

Sometimes by dna13

I love layouts that are just of a precious moments and seeing these two all cuddled, and then stitched up so perfectly made this a grand page:

Goodbye Winter by pajhnubhlis

Simple and elegant. I  am constantly amazed by the artist who put these pages together.  I also wanted to join in to say a sweet good bye to Winter.

Our Scrapbook Stash by Dalis

This is what we do, make pages with all our little doodads and miscellaneous elements and papers.  Having never been a “paper” scrapper, I smiled at her stash and loved all the cut papers to accent her page!

I’m gonna be honest….I adore cupcakes. They are a huge weakness of mine and for some reason even though I don’t bake tons, I have made a few batches of cup cakes this winter! I just love them! And I love this page too!! I adore the design and how there is so much to look at without taking up the whole page! Very well done!
