Finger Pointing- February 11th

11 Feb

Happy Sunday everyone!

I know some of you are just starting your day, it’s night time already in my side of the world and my kids are now in bed. It was an awesome weekend for us as I made a little surprise birthday party for my second daughter last Friday. She was so happy and she had fun with her friends from school. Nothing beats the joy of seeing how happy your kid is, she kept on saying that we are the best parents.

I want to share some gorgeous layouts to get you going in case you want to make a page or just be inspired by the featured pages for today. Let’s get started.

Favorite photo by Earlofoxford
Could this be any sweeter? Amazing photos in black ad white that really goes perfectly with the white textured paper. Love the shadows on the strips and the butterfly cut out with filled colors. This is so appealing with all the stitches, splats and everything else. You have to look closer to fully enjoy how beautiful this is.
This screams spring time for me.


Smile by Katell
Simply beautiful. Love the monochromatic design and how she cropped the photos. That small heart on the left side really adds beauty on the page.

The Little Things A-Z by Londoncuppa
This is spectacular and very catchy! I love her A to Z and now I am inspired to make one of my own. The lists are awesome and I can relate to some. I LOLed on the letter E. The gray background and the yellow hearts always go perfect together. The bubbles and the graphic alphas made the page standout. Love the photo so much and how she added the heart and wordings.

Laugh by Ellasspace
Adorable photos melt my heart. Love the energy she has and the sweet smiles. I also like the mix of flowers with all the snippets. Love the quote “Life is better when you’re laughing,” it is so true. The patterned papers balance the page and the photos, it doesn’t look busy for me.

you are my person by Biancka
Just wow! The page is so interesting and gorgeous. I just don’t know where to start. Just LOVE the vintage feel of the page, all the embellishments including the alphas she used are placed and tucked perfectly. Love the shadow works too and the deep rich color of the photo treatment.

This is Mary by Adryane
So artistic! Love the use of stitches to focus on the subject and adds drama to the page. I adore how she inverted the photo and the blending and brush works she made. The chosen embellishments are amazingly placed along with the calendar stamp and crumpled paper. Amazing!

Thanks for taking a look at the layouts I’ve chosen. If you have time, it would be awesome to stop by and give them some well deserved pats in the back in the galleries.

The transition by christellevandyk

This is beautiful in every way. The page just reminds me of the promises my husband and I made to each other. I love the font so much and the vintage feel of the page.

Another gem in the gallery. Love the simple yet amazing, clean, and crisp design. Love the layout size and the minimal amount of elements she used. The photos are priceless and the different kinds of alphas are great additions to the page.

Me and you by Shawnbear

Could this be any sweeter? Love the splash of colors, it just screams happiness. Amazing mixture of flowers and different elements plus the overall clustering work. Love the title too, glad she used black paper to make the page standout. The splats are a good addition to the page too.

My kids loved to play in the snow especially in the early days of the snow fall. Beautiful composition, love the crispness of the photo and the blending she made here.

Fell in love with this page the moment I saw it. Loving all the Christmas trees in different forms – brush works, acrylics, paper, and felt papers with stitches. Everything works perfectly. The lace added a soft touch and the use of embellishments too, not to mention the adorable photo in b&w, the postage frame is an amazing addition to. Did I just say I love everything about this page? And the brush border in black is just awesome!

The lil flower adds a finishing touch. Love the subtle photo treatment that goes well with the background paper.

A Pretty June Wedding, 1924 by mary kate
Such a wonderful photo to scrap. Although this is a scrap lift, I believe this deserves a standout. Beautiful vintage layout starting with the photo. I love the elements she picked, a beautiful arrangement indeed. Love the shabby look of the page too. The scallops on top of the photo adds perfection to the page.
