Finger Pointing ~ September 20, 2023

Hello out there in Digi-scrap land!! I hope this post finds you well and enjoying the change of seasons from Summer to Fall! I know I am. Living in the desert, I have grown to appreciate that first breeze of Autumn that brings the cooler weather!

Without further ado – the picks for the day!!

Priceless – by myssp

Is this not the most fun picture??? I love the color scheme, and that fabulous photo just shines!! The paint and ghosted text and cute little elements complement the pictures so well!! I especially love the butterflies flitting around the page! Oh – and that adorable Lady Bug!

Me Dreaming in Technicolor by mirjam

This “About Me” page is fantastic! I love all the interesting textures and the title of the page is so wonderful! I love the photo treatment that made her face melt into the background – and OH what a great way to use the lace as a collar!!! The butterfly in the corner is a great touch too!

Hiding by Anita

Here, kitty kitty!!!! What a sweet little face this kitty has! I really like the way she used the dark background to accentuate the light colored kitty and paint. Wonderful use of textures and shapes!

by new2this

I’m noticing a pattern with the pages I have chosen today – neutral beigy colors!!!  I was entranced by this picture of the two stuffed bears and had to click in to see what they were all about!! I love the meandering text and the sweet butterflies. And the layout artist made those bears!! I’m so impressed!!!

Walk by Miki

I am so impressed with this page!!!! First of all – that deliciously crackly background is a perfect plate to add the wonderfully blended photo and the swoosh where the text goes is perfectly used. I love how she punched up the contrast on the clock and left the band of red from the McDonald’s sign!

Love by Dady

I really enjoyed the photo treatment she used to blend the photo of the lady and the horse into the background paper, which is deliciously crackly!! The stitching is a perfect choice to set the flower cluster apart from the rest of the page.

Well, here we are at the end again! These trips go by so fast!!! I hope you have enjoyed this trip with me, and as always, leave some love for these fantastic pages! Both the title and the photo are linked to the galleries they reside in!!

Until next time!

Finger Pointing – September 18th

I considered myself more of an art journalist rather than traditional scrapbooker.  I love using digital scrapbooking kits to explore art, to express myself, and for the simple pleasure of creating.  As I look over my picks for today, I realize I ventured more on the side of digital artistry rather than traditional scrapbooking.  So, here is to having fun and making art just for the fun of it!

LAD-Fusion-11 by JanisT

This is creepy good!  I enjoy the mix of an almost photorealistic background with the illustrative art pieces.  The greens and teals pop on the grey tones.  The feel is a bit haunted mixed with whimsical.

Seafoam by Mary-11

Great use of circles here!  The repeated circular patterns starting with the photo frame and moving out to the porthole window frame on through the circles in the shell combined with the super soft shadows in the cluster make this an exceptionally pretty layout.

September Lucky Dip by Lidia

I am such a big fan of digital art – and here I could not pass up on the adorable whimsy mixed with fall colors and the nod to Halloween.

Finish the Sentence Challenge by Norma

Okay this made me giggle!  And let’s admit it – there is wonderful digital artistry here with the blending, soft colors, use of a black and white photo and once again, soft shadows on clusters.  The pops of purple are a wonderful finishing touch.

Fearless by Angels

I’m such a sucker for dark backgrounds.  Colors pop from them, like they do here.  The quote is fantastic and I like the way the paint splatters remind me of stars.

Here and Now by Mother Bear

Wow!  All those layers!  This is such a phenomenal art journal page.  The message about time is well received and artfully executed.

Till next time!  Happy crafting and scrapping!

Finger Pointing – September 13th

I cannot believe that we are to the middle of September. I feel like I’m going to blink and it will be 2024. I don’ t need life to pass by this fast. That’s why it is always nice to take a moment and peruse the digiscrapping galleries and look at all the amazing pages.

Autumn from JANIK

I was in love with this page the moment I saw it. Such great element clustering across the page. And I love the use of patterned paper. Plus that owl element is just so very cute.

You Me Love from smileark

I love the large black & white photo used on this page. I love the word art created for the title. The alpha choices are just so good. The small element clusters are really great too.

Punpkin Patch from EllenT

The great use of white space on this page was what first caught my eye. I love the element clustering. Plus the layering under the photos is so great. This is a wonderful autumn page.

Autumn Sunrise from cinderella

This is one of those pages that just grabbed me from the moment I saw it in the gallery. The element placement on this page is fantastic and I really like the element clusters. Plus the sunrise is just gorgeous.

Little Sparkles from Ria

This page really does sparkle in the gallery and I absolutely love it. The element cluster under the photo is so pretty. And the photo work, including the blending on the page, is fantastic.

Nebraska 1887 from Susan – s3js

Last up is this great family history page. I love that it looks like a real traveler’s notebook. Great use of stamps under the photos. And I love that so many photos were included on the page.

Thank y’all for taking a moment to stop by and check out these amazing pages. Hopefully you’ll find some inspiration for your next page. And don’t forget that today is a great day to document your memories.


Gallery Standouts for Sept 12th, 2023

And then suddenly in a blink of an eye it was September! Just last week it was in the high 90’s and even the 100’s here in Wisconsin! and now it seems that fall is here as we are experincing 60 degree days this week. So odd how that works! Yet I am welcoming the fall weather. I am looking forward to pulling out my jeans, boots and comfy sweaters.. and not to mention hoodies! Can’t wait to snuggle the dog on the couch under a warm blanket and sip on apple cider! I love the colors of fall here in my state. The bluffs are so beautiful! And my dog, Neelix, can’t get enough of the falling leaf buffet that mother nature provides for him!

My first find of the night comes from the Lilypad

I can by Roxana

I Can

I have been a long time stalker of Roxana’s work! everything she does is eye catching and down right amazing! (if you haven’t seen her gallery you should!). This one is no exception! I love her extraction here and how it sits upon the pencil so nicely and the colors used here! It is just so nicely done! And the stamp work… and stitching…There isn’t anything about this page that I don’t love!


For my next page I was searching the gallery at the Sweet Shoppe for inspriation when I stumbled upon this layout and just gasped!

Love This by Txcorey

Love This left

First of all that face! Can it be any cuter? I think not! and second of all the rich colors! I have to say the colors in a kit is what makes me buy it about 75% of the time. (the rest is the theme) And this kit is screaming buy me .. buy me ! to me! but than again I love a lot of Kristin Cronin Barrow’s kits.. she always has the most beautiful patterns and colors in all her kits! Anyways! I love the clusters the scrapper did on this page around the adorable cutie pie!

Next I made a little trip over to Pickle Berry Pop. Here I found this beauty

Tropicana by tizote59


I loved the photo of the sweet little girl making a goofy face! Life is too short not to be silly sometimes right? And I just love sunglasses photos! I loved the scrapper’s sweet clusters and how she scrapped in circle shapes! such a well done layout!


Last I traveled to Ginger Scraps. This is where I found my last layout for the night

Down Memory Lane by zanthia

Down Memory Lane

I loved the deep fall colors of this layout and the layering of patterned papers on top! The beautiful floral clusters framing the photo were a nice touch as well! and such a romantic beautiful photo! Just screams fall!

Well I hope everyone has a  great rest of their weeks! Keep filling those galleries with beautiful pages! I will see you later on this month! Kari signing out for now! Tata!!


Finger Pointing – September 10th
