Finger Pointing – February 15th

15 Feb

Hey, hey, everyone!! I hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day and were spoiled in whatever way you love to be spoiled!! I knew I wouldn’t see most of my family until after Valentine’s Day, so I went shopping after work today and scored half price chocolate!! And I’ve just finished cruising the galleries and seeing all kinds of sweet pages and beautiful eye candy!! Hope you enjoy my picks for this evening!

First up is Shining Star by jaye. If you’ve read my posts before, you know that I am a sucker for a great boy page and a great older boy page really steals my heart! I love that she admits to stealing the photo from his FB page, because I do the exact same thing with my grown children! If it weren’t for social media, I’d have no pictures of them ha! I absolutely love the paints on the back ground and how the colors work so well with the b/w of the photo! The sequin touches and even the flowers are just fantastic! I adore that little bit of journaling towards the bottom. This is just an awesome page!


Next up is Tea 4 Two by frani_54. How gorgeous is that big photo!! Her blending work is absolutely perfect and the smaller photo split in to two sections is not only beautifully done but also just so stinking cute!! And I really love that fun title work!! Such a gorgeous page!!


My next choice is You Are A Gift To Me by tammielsmith. Another absolutely adorable photo and all those layers are so so pretty!! I love the soft feel to this page and those gorgeous flowers on the background. The pieces of lace and doily accents are such perfect additions to this beautiful page!


I was so excited to find another great boy page today! All Boy by KimGeling is so fun!! I adore all those hexagons and the awesome patterns she chose for them! The color combination is just perfect for that sweet photo and even with all those flowers, this page does not loose its masculine feel! The wire on the background is such a great touch! Fantastic page! He is a handsome guy!


I am also a sucker for a great wood background and I really love Sweet Sixteen by Chigirl! The border and paint on the wood is so beautifully done and I love the paper layers behind the photo! Her title work is super cool and the design does such a great job of leading your eye down and across the page! Absolutely gorgeous work!!


And last, but certainly not least is Color Me by 01lousmith. This one caught my eye immediately in the gallery. This is so incredibly creative with the paint and photo work! The photo edit is absolutely gorgeous and everything pops so beautifully on that neutral background. I adore that title work as well!! This one is just a stunner!!


And that will wrap things up for me tonight! I hope you enjoyed my picks and will take some time to leave some love for these talented artists! Until next time, see you around the galleries!!

I don’t know about you, but I am totally looking forward to the weekend and we are supposed to have some beautiful weather for this time of year! I’m just in from work today, but I’ve been sneaking in the galleries from time to time on lunch and breaks…shhhh don’t tell! I am always in awe of all the amazing creations I see. It is never easy to narrow down the choices! But here are my picks for today…

Can I just say, oh my gosh! Look at the beautiful colors and amazing design created by Lynnette on her layout Autumnal Face.

I am amazed at all  leaves, flowers, and elements she used! There is so much to see and it all works so wonderfully together. The sprinkles in the background and borders on the side add such a lovely feel! Beautifully scrapped!


And speaking of gorgeous layers…just check out Cute by yorkiemom! I absolutely adore that big photo and she is indeed just the cutest…such a curious look on her face! The wavy paper with the cutouts is just fantastic and her added clusters are beyond beautiful. I love how she added the paint on top of the photo and gave it such lovely texture!  This is just an amazing page!


Never Doubt Your Instinct by cinderella drew me in right away! I love the balance of color across the page and it’s such a gorgeous combination! The framing is so cool and so creative! The title work blended in to the background is so perfectly done and her element cluster is just beautiful! So much beauty and emotion in this page!


And my final pick for today is Think Outside the Box by *gina*. This is such an amazing page!! I was immediately drawn to it in the gallery and could stare at it for the longest time.

14 Jan

Hey, hey everyone!! Glad to be back posting after our little break. I hope you all are having a fantastic start to the new year! In my part of the world it is seriously cold, but that means lots of time staying inside which means more time to browse all the amazing galleries!!

My first pick this evening is BeYOUtiful by sheana. I think it was the gorgeous yellow that caught my eye first, but I am seriously in love with that cutout on the woodgrain background! The stacked photos with the cute clip is so fun! I adore that cat and all the other fun elements scattered about the page! This is beautifully done!!


Next up is Life Goes On by seniorgal. I absolutely love all the gorgeous colors in this page! The layers and textures in the background give such a great feel to this page! Those bright flowers and the ribbon are such beautiful touches and I love the added messy stitching! What a fun way to document something so everyday! Love this!


My next pick is Jan 2018 by MINIDEB. This is such a beautiful month in review page! I love the creative and unique design and lovely photos! The background is absolutely adorable and the little added bits of stitching and paper pieces are just perfectly done! Perfect way to document these daily moments!


Everlasting Love by Glori2 captured my attention immediately in the gallery. I love the big blended photo with more defined focal point in that lovely circle! The painty border is amazing and her cluster work is absolutely perfect! This is just such a stunning creative page!


I am such a fan of beautiful white space pages and ad_almanac_katell_copie by katell is an amazing example. I adore those triangles and the gorgeous patterns she chose for them. The black and white photo and small element touches are just perfect! I adore her title work and the splashes of paint! This is such a beautiful page!


And my final pick for this evening is Snow by Jill. I am not so much a fan of snow out my window, but I am definitely a fan in gorgeous pages like this one! Her photos are stunning and I love the layered paint and snowflakes behind them. The little pops of color in the flowers is a perfect touch and I absolutely adore the small dangling letters. This is just a lovely winter page!


And that will do it for me this evening! I hope you’ll take some time to leave a little love for these amazing artists! Until next time, see you around the galleries!!


Finger Pointing – December 12th

12 Dec

Hey, hey everyone!! Happy Tuesday! It’s certainly been an interesting one for me. This post is taking me a bit longer than usual because I am stuck in a hotel room with my 12 year old. We had a snow storm come up while I was at work and after spending an hour climbing a mountain, passing jackknifed tractor trailers, I had enough and stopped. I’m posting on my work Chromebook with pretty sketchy internet, so I hope this goes ok haha. The one thing it has been is a fairly quiet evening for strolling through the galleries. Hope you enjoy my picks for tonight.

Real Life by bjc

I am such a sucker for a beautiful monochromatic page, and also pages showing everyday real life! This layout got me both ways. I absolutely love the real moment captured and the gorgeous way that it’s scrapped. The sweet cluster is just perfect and the solids with the pattern behind the photo is lovely!! I am totally in love with this page!


Fire and Ice by jlholden15

How gorgeous is the gold in this layout with that beautiful red and blue! I absolutely love that gorgeous clustering with the amazing Christmas balls and ribbon!

Snow Copy by Elizabeth

Maybe my situation today is why I was drawn to this page this evening. But my view wasn’t nearly as beautiful. Maybe I just wish this is how I was seeing the snow instead of on the road in front of me! This is such a gorgeous layout! I am in absolute awe of the blending and fabulous texture, I feel like I could touch it! The big snowflakes falling are so perfect and that snowman is adorable!! I am totally in love with this page!

I’m running a little late, but before I get to my picks I want to say that one of the things I am so thankful for is our amazing community of scrappers and designers from all corners of the world who share their passion and creativity with all of us!

First up is Whole Again by caapmun. That gorgeous half face drew me to this layout right away! I love the contrast between the color on her and the black doodles and stamps.

Finger Pointing – November 5th

Happy Sunday, everyone! And happy end of Daylight Saving Time, if you’re saying goodbye to it like I am. I can’t say as I’m particularly happy about it, but the extra hour is pretty nice. I’ve been able to get some scrappy things done and spend some awesome time in the galleries! All the creativity out there is so fun and so inspiring! Here are my standout choices for today.

Speaking of the time change, check out this amazing page – Fall Back by HeyJude! The clock in the center is such an amazing focal point. I love all the paint and strips of color behind it. The girl with the beautiful flower crown is so perfect and I adore the torn strips at the top! Her shadow work and element placement is absolutely fantastic! I am in love with this page and it does make me feel a bit better about the time change.


Autumn in the Garden by Scrapmemories is such a beautiful fall page! I love the photos of the decorations, I bet they are even more amazing in person! The grid stamps and torn paper edges on the paper give such great texture and I love the feeling of motion in the paints and dragonflies. Beautiful use of the two flowers in the center and the cluster on the side. This is absolutely beautiful and so creative!


The great title work on We Did It by Glori2 caught my eye right away and I had to take a closer look. How fun that she used that big photo and put the title right on that rock. the blending is so gorgeous and I love the transparent text! The close up photo and sweet cluster are just awesome and her shadow work is gorgeous! This is such a lovely page and congrats to them on 25 years!!


I love that Observe Right Now by Kayleigh has such a lovely fall feel, but such a soft feel at the same time. The paint and beautiful doily make such a great base for that creative photo. I always enjoy photos with a unique perspective. I love the worn paper layers and the color in the row of leaves. Absolutely beautiful shadow work and attention to detail.


The background of Sunggery Timmy by deasue caught my eye right away! I am such a fan of a bold paper background and this one is so awesome!! I love that adorable word path behind the amazingly done photo and small cards. I adore how this looks beautifully simple and full. Just an all around charming page!


And my final pick for today is A New Chapter Begins by Conny. I’m not even sure where to begin on all that I love about this one! All of the amazing patterned pieces and clusters lead your eye all over this stunning page! I love the background with the great blended stamp work. Those photos are too fun and I love how the blues in the layout bring out the blue in her sunglasses. The word strip and word art are so perfect! All of the details in this one make it a standout for sure!!


And that will do it for me today! Hope you enjoyed my choices and will take some time to leave love for these wonderful artists. Until next time, see you around the galleries!!
