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!


Puppy Snuggles by Mrs_Deb_Reynolds
Digging the white space and clean design on this one. Love the focus on the right side and how the photo treatment goes perfectly well with the papers and elements she used. What a sweet quote too and I’m in awe of her precious photo. Amazing work! Love the scallop border and the paper patterns.

Merry Memories by Deekaa
Could this be any cuter? This is just fabulous, love the background paper, so festive and done intricately. Beautiful memories to remember and such a wonderful page.


Together we have it all by marijke
Great heritage page! Love the composition, blending, and how everything is done. The stitches add beauty to the page. Love the quad design, the drips, and splats brushes around the page.

Owl together by christellevandyk
Very striking! Love the big photo on the right side and all the strips of papers on the left side. I admire how she put everything together and how she group the different flowers together. Amazing how she opted to turn her photo into b&w to showcase both the photo and design. Fantastic work indeed!

Novemberrr by Anja_77
Love the softness of the page. Her title work is as kewl as the page. Great choices of paper and elements. Simply striking, not to mention the beautiful lil girl. Beautiful composition!

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

7 Nov

Hello everyone! November is here, can’t believe that we only have a few weeks before Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have a bittersweet 2017 and I can’t wait to welcome 2018 with lots of good vibes and positivity. Before I go further with this, let us first take a look at my picks for today, hope you like them. This is Beth, a.k.a. kewl_jive ;)

Merry Christmas by Dvhoward. Fell in love with the photo the moment I saw it in the gallery. Could this be any sweeter? So worthy to scrap and capture the moment for posterity. Love the big photo and how she played with the elements. The clustering work is amazing, so much eye candy to enjoy. Truly beautiful in every way.

We will remember by profolly. Such an amazing heritage page, another great work here. The pops of color stand out and the composition is superb. What a great way to remember the heroes. Love how she processed everything here including the masking and use of word art. The painted poppy makes the page stand out.

Leaving for TX by Heidi Nicole. Simply amazing! I still fancy a clean and simple design and I believe that it’s more worthy of praise. Love the white space and minimal use of embellishments. The lil flower adds a finishing touch. Love the subtle photo treatment that goes well with the background paper.

Wish you gr8t success by ~Justagirl~. Another awesome page! I don’t know where to begin. The extraction is as cool as the page, the use of wooden background paper with stitches all around adds awesomeness to the page. Love the vintage look of the page and the adorable photos of the cute lil boy and title work. I sure hope he’ll have fun years ahead in school.

Life is good by Amanda.C. Life is good indeed and this page just screams beautiful! So much to enjoy by looking at this page. I just love everything here, the composition is just amazing. The cluster work and the use of brushes along with the message. Very inspiring words indeed.

Our home by CMiles. I love the house template with the photos of her new abode. Congrats on the new home! Love how she played with the flowers and the gray bricks. Love the big photo as her background and the pops of red.

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

Hi everyone!

It’s been a busy day for me but before I go to sleep, I want to share my favorite layouts for today. Yes, you heard me right, while some of you are just starting your day, it’s time to doze off on my side of the globe. Hope you like and enjoy them as much as I do.

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.

Fall 2017 by Tronesia
Great clean design, look at those amazing shadows and circles. Wonderful autumn photo-op. The white background really made the page pop along with all the autumn colors. There’s so much about the page that I really adore.

Delicious Autumn by Janedee
The title itself is as delicious as the page. The blending is so gorgeous. Love how she brings the subject to life, I can almost smell the pungency of those chilis. Love the mix of papers and the title work too.

This is why I scrap by BarbaraUnzen
Beautifully done! Such a sweet journaling too. I have to agree with her, scrapbooking is about preserving memories. Love the sweet elements she used, the fonts, and how simple and elegant her layout looks.

Growing up in a farm by Kabrak1207
This is so inspiring. Beautiful words to live by. Another wonderful blending and beautiful arrangement of flowers.

Inside my head by dotcomkari

Last but definitely not the least, another fantastic layout! I can feel the outpouring emotions on her page. Great composition! Loving how she made the scribble head and all the blending done on the page.

Hi everyone!

I do hope you guys are having a nice day or night wherever you are. To wrap up your day or start your day, here are the beautiful pages that standout for me. Hope you’ll be able to enjoy the layouts I’ve picked. This is Beth, a.k.a. kewl_jive ;)

City Dream by Breeoxd
Another great page! Everything is done with perfection. I don’t even know where to begin. I am loving all the elements she chose here with all the brush works and stitches around the page. Love the pops plus the added splash of colors here and there. I didn’t get to visit NYC when I went to the US, but I am glad my husband was able to go there and went to WTC when it was still around. Hopefully, I’ll be able to go there and explore the city that never sleeps.

Family by Saarmf
Family will always be the best thing that we have in life. I fell in love with this page the moment I saw it. There is something about the autumn colors that I love so much. Amazing use of elements, shadows and a mix of flowers. The colors are so inviting, not to mention the wooden background and the wonderful photo in black & white. It really sets the mood and the contrast it created is lovely. Just pure beauty!

Be awesome by Ga_L
Just as the title says, this is awesome! Love how my eyes lead to the handsome lil guy. The photo in both big and small size add a kick of awesomeness on the page. The cardboard scallop, photo stitched, and the nitty gritty elements are so nicely done. Love the journaling on the bottom page. I still fancy the size of layout that she used. The light black & white photos compliment well with the wavy paper she used.

Creepy by Janedee

The lighting is amazing and so is the page. Halloween is just around the corner and it’s something that we also look forward too. Beautiful blending, framing, and choices of brushes and stamps.

This girl by AmaneseFe
Such a beautiful page! Love the simplicity of the page, the masking with minimal elements, the brushworks are just amazing. Love how she surrounded the photo with a stitched frame. The kraft paper adds a nice job on the colors she used on the page. The little bubble hearts give great balance to the page. Beautiful in every way!

Christmas be merry by cutiejo1

Christmas is just around the corner especially if you live where I am now. Here in the Philippines, Christmas songs play in the malls from the very start of the BER months. This is just gorgeous! I love the kit she used and how she used it. The tassels in red, green, and white are just perfect with all the flowers and how she clustered everything on the right side – not too heavy. Amazing shadow works too. Love the circular photo design and the beautiful lady on the photo with her beanie.

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


Finger Pointing-October 3rd

3 Oct

Where did the time go? I still couldn’t believe it’s October already, my birth month and my favorite season Fall kicks in. A lot of things are happening everywhere in the world and I wish I could just sprinkle love and omit the word “hate” in the dictionary. Anyways, this is my first post again after a long hiatus in digiland. Hope you guys are inspired by these layouts as much as I am. Happy viewing! This is Beth, a.k.a. kewl_jive ;)

Life doesn’t stop by AJM easily caught my attention in the gallery. I just adore how she made the page – the blending, composition and title works perfectly together. I honestly think this could be hanged in the living room among other art works. Please take a closer look on the people crossing the street.

Hope 4 2017  by Deekaa is simply beautiful. I love pages with substance and although I tried almost all digital styles, I still fancy the clean, and simple layouts. I reckon what she has said on her page and was smiling while reading her journaling. Somehow, I see myself in her. I want things fast and want to move on, I want this year to be over. Anyways, the bits and pieces of this page really shine and the centered design is so nice. I love the font too, I wish she would share which font she used.

Sunrise by Conny screams awesomeness. Great pictures, love the combination and use of the template. I love the burst of happiness, joy, and total love. The colors just go perfectly with the photos. I am in awe of the clustered flowers here. Great job!

Crazy kids by tracermajig is just awesome in every way! Love how she scrap lifted the page. I know she was on the GSO last week, but I couldn’t help but include this beauty for this week. I know you guys will all agree with this gem. Great composition, just wow! Love how she did her journaling with all the nitty gritty embellishments and not to mention the cuteness of the photos in color and black & white.

last breakfast by Hclappy. There is something about the pictures and the choices of papers that I really enjoy looking at. I have to check where the beach is located and I hope my guess is right, the beach is in Spain? Such wonderful memories to scrap. Another place to be added in my bucket list. I love the pastel flowers and the papers she used plus how serene the page looks like.

Outdoor Fun by Gina makes me miss Japan and Korea more. Fall is one of my favorite seasons and this is another beautiful gem that reminds me of it. The page makes me want to scrap my fall pictures with my kiddos. Great shadow works, feels like I can touch it, along with a beautiful fall photo. Well done!

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

A hybrid page that deserves a shout out. Great composition! Love the brushworks, the fonts and that folded look on the right side.

Welcome to my garden by beaute
One of the amazing scrappers with beautiful pages. Love the scene she created and how she decorated this lil garden. The extraction is nicely done, looks like she’s trying to balance. Beautifully done, love the shadow works too and how she plays with the opacity of some embellishments here.

Push through by Profolly
This is soo creative! I can relate with her, sometimes I couldn’t find my mojo and would check the GSO blog for creative ideas or just look at my kids’ memorabilias. Love the artdoll and how she manipulated the page, the play with overlays was awesome. There is so much beauty to look at on this page. Great art work!

Spring forward by wtwred
Spring break is finally here. That’s one of the few things that my kids miss in Japan and Korea. I adore pages with journaling about everyday life, that’s what scrapbook is all about. This screams happy spring layout for me. Fantastic work with the elements and background paper. Such[ fun memories to remember.

Collect moments by Janedee
Another breathtaking photos and page combination, makes me think about my mom and grandma. I love collecting memories with my camera and eventually documenting the said event. I always try to take photos of my kids with their grandmas. Love the background paper, making it look like it was done with crayons, the blending and the scribbles. Beautiful composition focusing on what’s really important.
