Finger Pointing – December 22nd

22 Dec

Hello everyone! This will be probably our last post for our holiday break, so I hope to bring you some beautiful pages before we will be away for a while. Maybe if one of the contributing girls feels like blogging, she will pop in and surprise you with an extra post during our absence. You never know…so peep in now and then and see if something happened…if not, we will be back of course! January the 5th will be our first post in 2015!

Tis the season by Margje As a lot of Margjes pages this one grabbed me right away when I entered the gallery! It gave me an instant winter feel, the colors breathe cold, snow and ice and as grown up in Holland, I looove iceskating!! So this one belongs here I think, bringing the winter a little closer! Great page!

Christmas card {back} by KimR+ I love this Christmascard idea with highlights of the family listed! And I totally love the grey marked list on the right side! Where did Kim find the time to read 128 books, that’s more than 2 each week!!! I didn’t finish one last year I think…was tooo busy!!

Anna color challenge by Dady Owwww….aren’t these little Robins adorable!! And isn’t the whole page a gorgeous one? Love the golden touches here, love the texture and the blending, a wonderful serene page!

Live for today by Louso The pieces of torn paper, the brushes, the scribbles, and all the elements in combination with the beautiful innocent face of the girl has resulted in an interesting page I wanted to take a closer look to. I love the messyness and I love the colors used here. A beauty!!

Finger Pointing – December 17

17 Dec

Hello everyone! Are you all ready for Xmas? I am not… as usual!! lol I did find a gift for my husband. I found a good deal + some fidelity points to redeem ;) on the thing he wanted to have but didn’t tell him. He actually gave up on having one because of the price so it should be a surprise for him. I love it when I can find the thing he wants and still get surprised. For my family as they live far away it has to be parcel friendly lol and I found some cute tin can teas, but I still need to find something for my father and bother… Oh men! I never know what to buy them lol Anyway, I hope you all get what you wished for, that you find nice ideas for you loved ones and that you have a wonderful Christmas!! I don’t think we’ll see each other until the new year so talk to you again in 2015!!

December Memories by earlofoxford  – Gorgeous use of the template! Love the diamond design. Love also how everything pops against the bright green background. The realistic look is amazing! The accent of the dark frame showcase wonderfully the beautiful picture and make it stand out. Truly beautiful!

So Ready by jode2771 – I love how the accent is put on the star of this photo. With so many people on the photo it’s pretty hard to make something/someone stand out but here with the brushes, the frame over the big photo and the colored spot with the circle text brush makes all the difference. The eyes go naturally toward the most important person in this crowd. Love how the title and journal are in the corners like this too. Very creative and clever page!


Cagnes sur Mer by Daddy – One more wonderful template use here! I love how the photo takes the whole page and the paper spots are used with a different opacity to put accents on the photo. The delicate brushes here and there are beautiful too. I say it again but, as a template addict myself, I think this is a very clever use of the template!

Memories by Meibritt – Love the somehow clean look of this but still a tiny bit of mess with the brushes, bits and pieces here and there. Beautiful photo of course and the eyes are drawn to it thank to the arrows. Love the stitches too! Doesn’t this page look real too?


From behind the camera by Justagirl – What a cool design!!! I love how the yellow paper is used in vellum style and overlap the big blended photo. The balance, the flow with the fun stitches and the framing is just perfect!!


Frozen by alinalove – And finally this one… LOOK AT THIS GORGEOUS PAGE!!! I just can’t decide if it’s a digi page or a real paper scrap!!! IT IS AMAZING!!! The framing/clusters are gorgeous! The shadowing is just stunning!!! Oh I hope this lady will come here and tell me if this is digi or paper cause it will bug me not to know!! lol I love the silver glitter and the paper layering too. SIMPLY GORGEOUS design!!!

Hello everyone! Paula here with my choices from the galleries on this Tuesday!
This will be my last post this year, because I’m going to Italy (YAY) with my family for the Holidays! I have some absolutely wonderful layouts to share with you tonight, so let’s get to it!

 Course landaise by pitiscrap

This first one immediately caught my eye with the the design and the lines, geometric shapes. What an amazing monochromatic page!


repos by timounette

This next one made me want to take a closer look right away. Love the simple almost monochromatic design and how she repeated the same photo with different sizes and colors. Such a sweet, cool page!


frozen bydawn inskip

I love to see her pages! This one is a very beautiful and delicate winter page.  I love the colors that go perfectly with the photo. Gorgeous work!


December Daily 2014 03 by AnnaDrozd

Another winter page! My eyes were drawn immediately to this page because of that retro feel on this page. What a beauty!!! I love the winter, the cold, lots of snow  and everything related with it.  There’s a lovely mix of information yet nothing feels like it’s too much.


A beautiful fall flower by TiffanyFisher

Isn’t this beautiful? I love that the flowers look like they were painted on the wood and this girls look like a model! Excellent composition combined with perfect shadowing make this stunning page a standout for me!


Lost in There by Hollie

Love when I found some designer’s pages at the galleries. And this is from an amazing scrapper and designer! In this page everything works great together! I love all the wonderful lines, shapes and squiggles and that she put the quote inside the men’s body! A truly remarkable photo-less layout!


And that was the last one for today! I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, lovely Holidays and a Happy and creative 2015! See you next year!!!


Finger Pointing – December 14th

Hello everyone! Jeanine here from a rainy and cold Holland. I’m working nightshifts right now and all the children are asleep so plenty of time to post! Can you believe it is Christmas in only one and a half week? I hope we will have a little snow by then, I love winters with lots of snow!!! But I fear my hope won’t come true…:( Let’s see what I’ve found, the galleries are filled with Christmas pages already, but I still try to pick non Christmaspages pages also!

My heart by Ashleywb At first I fell for the colors here, I love warm vibrant colors!! When I took a closer look, I first saw the beautiful hearts scattered all over and then I noticed the journaling and it is really heartwarming what Ashley writes to her hubby! How she build up the page is great, heavy at the bottom, lighter at the top and of course I love the messy stitches and the scribbles!

Magical memories by Laceybittner What a lovely page! Love the B&W pictures against the christmascolors, love all the fonts used and I think the banners connect the pictures in a  very creative way!

Beautiful souls by Lime Ohhhhh, this is a beauty!!!! Look at the depth in this page, look at the beautiful fragile colors!! By blending, Lime managed to get an almost underwater scenery I totally love!!! Great quote also!!

Winter…I love this time by Anne PC Yesss, I love winter also!! I love the C&S approach here and the lines giving direction to the viewers eye. Great pictures, great snowflakes, great use of colors!

Christmas Photoshoot by Madigirl The B&W pictures together with the colors used give a lovely vintage feel to this page! Also love it that the page looks like an very traditional page with lots of elements, but it isn’t a traditional one…I think Maja stamped, brushed and blended a lot here and I love it!!

Christmas present by Ren Last but not least is this beautiful page by Ren. Ren is a master in brushworks I think and this page is an example of it! Love all the soft browns, whites and creames here, but I fell for the little snowmen at the bottom, athough I like the reindeer also Ren!! :)

These were my choices for tonight! I hope you like them and please leave the artists some love if you visit the galleries!

Hello everyone! Here Chantal from the Netherlands. It’s almost Christmas! I love this time of the year. Next week my twin boys are turning 4, so this week is a very busy one! But first my fave’s for today!

The first one is Anastasia by Danesa. This is absolutely not my style but WOW I love how she made this. Such a sweet and romantic layout! Gorgeous!

Anastasia by Danesa

Our Life by Tronesia: The photos , she used, are so sweet! I love the journaling and the layering! But that’s not all! Look at the shadows, they are perfect! A very beautiful and precious layout!

Our Life by Tronesia

Day 11 december 2014 by Veer. I could pick all of her “Documenting December” pages! You have to take a look in her gallery. But I picked this one because I think it’s such a delicate page. I love how she placed the elements and the brushes.

Day11 December by Veer

Another great “Documenting December” page is Day 12, December 2014 from Madi. This one has to be printed!. I love the composition. It’s so creative. This would be beautiful, printed on a canvas.

Day 12 by Madi

The last two picks are journaling cards. They can be a great inspiration if you want to make your own Christmas Cards.

AJ 12 days 2 by Bellbird: I love the colors, the bokeh and the brushwork. And that quote is perfect!

AJ 12 Days 2 by Bellbird

Art Journal Cards for Twelve Days of Christmas by Lindzee: All 5 cards are so cute! They are all different but related. Love the colors and the illustrations. Great inspiration!

Art journal cards by Lindzee

I hope you like my picks. Congratulations if you are featured, and, if you love the pages, leaving a bit of love to these awesome artists only takes a minute. Each layout is linked to the gallery. Thanks for stopping by!

Have a nice (scrap)weekend!

Hugs Chantal
