Finger Pointing – February 27th

Hi everyone!  Deborrah (a/k/a DivaMom96) here today with some absolutely GAWGOUS layouts from the galleries.  I’ve been doing a lot of art journaling lately, playing with colors, inks and doodling.  I haven’t done any paper scrapping or card making in YEARS and I’m enjoying myself immensely.  It really makes me appreciate the amazing things we can do on a computer even more.  So, sit back and let’s go on a layout journey.

Fly Away by AmandaJ

First up, feast your eyes on this beautiful page!  I love the paints and stenciling behind the photo.  The yellows she scattered around the page really pick up the color of the butterfly in the photo.  Great stamped title, too!   Fabulous layout!!

Lucky by myssp

I love the lattice work on this layout!!!  It grabbed my attention immediately.  I really like how the artist used the diamond shape around the page, from using the shape as paper frames, to the little child leaning on a diamond-shaped mirror in the photo!  Her cluster work is breathtaking!  Gorgeous layout!!

Inspiration by Mother Bear

This layout is simply amazing!  I love how she created her journal book, showing us the photos on three pages at once!  Her shadowing is fabulous and I love the paint bottle cluster at the bottom of the book.  So inspiring!!

Teenagers by iScrap

I laughed and laughed when I saw this page!  So, so true – the teenage years are a challenge to any parent, let alone the teenager herself! I love the photos she used and the faces the girls are making!  Her clustering is so perfect for this pocket page – my eye travels around the page so that I don’t miss anything.  LOVE!

Love YOU by RJMJ

I. LOVE. THIS. PAGE.  What an amazing job this artist did here.  I love the photo repetition, the flower clusters on the hat and how she mimicked them at various other spots on the page, the wonderful vines and branches giving even more movement, etc.  And, of course, the fabulous color palette, too!  It screams elegance and style!  Wonderful layout!

With Play Comes Joy by pmjames

Finally, I bring you this amazing page.  Everything about the page is perfectly placed! I love the blended photo, the wonderful elements and the important journaling under the photo.  The artist even gives you some tips on how to create the page in her credits.  Fabulous!

That’s it for today – have fun browsing the galleries, and don’t forget to leave some loving on the wonderful layouts.  Happy scrapping!

Finger Pointing – February 13th

Woohooo!! It’s Super Bowl Sunday!  Hi everyone, it’s Deborrah (a/k/a DivaMom96), and I’m getting my picks in early so that I can sit back and enjoy the game later tonight.  So, let’s go!

I love the mystery of this layout!  The diagonal flow is a wonderful design; it leads the eye from mystery to mystery.  Beautiful!

45 by Roxana

The big numbers and balloons first grabbed my attention on this page, but then the stuffed pocket really drew me in.  Love the sentiment!

NBK-Feb-Challenge by Cherylndesigns

I love all the artsy goodies around this page!  Every place my eye rests there is a beautiful reminder of love!  Just gorgeous!

Finger Pointing – December 7th

Happy December!  DivaMom96 here today bringing you some wonderful layouts from around the web.  I love this month so much.  No only is it the Holiday Month supreme, but it’s my birthday month and I feel like the whole world is celebrating.  I had so much fun browsing the galleries today.  Gorgeousness everywhere!!  I hope you enjoy my picks; I certainly had fun picking them for you!

Cozy Christmas by Olivia24

This layout looks like it should be the cover of a Christmas book!  All the old fashioned elements and goodies caught my eye, but I was drawn to the beautifully extracted photo inside the wreath.  Perfectly done!  Love everything about this one!

Deck the Halls by Ernie88

Look how GORGEOUS!!  I love all the beautiful gold paper, the frame and that wonderful word art!  And what an adorable little boy!!  No question that he believes in the magic!  So beautifully scrapped; this is a memory to treasure forever!

Walking in a Winter Wonderland by sandra-9663

I love when layouts are inspired by Holiday songs.  I saw a lot of them in the galleries today, but this one stood out because of the fantastic image blending!  I love the couple walking hand-in-hand through the snowman, with snowflakes and music drifting around them.  So perfect!

Christmas Memories by mywisecrafts

I fell in the love with this layout the moment I saw it!  Such gorgeous artwork all around the page – whimsical and dreamy all at the same time.  And that little face!  I love  how she put a fun Santa hat on the little one’s head and added the elf feet at the corner.  So many cute things all throughout this layout.  Just fantabulous!!

Get Your Merry On by shunnstergirl

I’ve seen a lot of gorgeous pocket pages, but this one is exceptional!  Where to start the accolades!  The wonderful wood/cork background paper; the different directions of the WordArt and elements; the adorable photo; the amazing clustering; ROTATING THE WHOLE THING ON AN ANGLE!  Really, this is perfection!  BRAVA!!!

December Christmas Doll Challenge by DeLoris

I love snow globes, and when I saw this layout in the gallery, I couldn’t resist taking a closer look.  The more I looked the more I fell in love with all of the beautiful artwork, elements and Christmas cheer.  The blending is just fabulous!  And I love her hanging greenery in the upper corner.  And that train heading into the photo is wonderful!  Just beautifully done!

Merry Holiday by Dalis

Finally, I leave you with this beautiful layout containing all the wishes and joys of the season!  I love how she decorated her simple wreath with poinsettias, greenery and berries.  Adding the beautiful word art (especially the clipped stack at the bottom) took it to a whole new level.  Great background paper and paint spats, too.  Gorgeous!

That’s it for today!  I’ll see you around next year – have a joyous, healthy and safe holiday season!!  Happy scrapping!

santa by weaselwatchr

Look at all these adorable photos!  I love what the color and fun business of this layout.  The adorable wooden word art is perfect for the photos, and I love all the greenery and snowflakes.  (How on earth did she get her cat to agree to the costume?  I think my cats would have scratched my eyes out and then peed on my bed for spite if I tried this!)  Beautiful!

Merry & Bright by tammybean04

What a gorgeous Christmas layout!  I love all the wonderful Christmas elements, clustering and beautiful word art!  So warm and inviting.  Beautiful job!

Happy New Year by JenEm

I was drawn to the wonderful photo in this layout.  I love how she blended it into the paper and then used a frame to emphasize a portion of the photo.  Her minimal use of elements is just perfect for the photo and her journaling. Wonderful!

It’s a Wonderful Life by anke

I love the design of this layout!  The stitched circle under the horizonal paper and frame is so interesting, and the photos are beautiful as well.  Great color choice, too!

Merriest by Kayleigh

I LOVE THIS LAYOUT! Look at all the delicious elements and fantastic layering!  I love how she framed black and white papers to match her black and white photo.  It’s the perfect resting point for this layout full of Christmas colors.  Just Fantastic!!

That’s it for tonight!  Happy scrapping!
