Hi everyone!

Wow! Where did the time go? While January took a long time to finish, February flew by so fast and March is just around the corner. Hope your first quarter of 2024 is treating you well so far.

This is Beth, a.k.a. kewl_jive, bringing you today’s amazing standouts. Here are my top 6 for today.

Yesterday, today and Tomorrow by Angela Toucan
This photo-less layout is just beautifully done. Love how everything is placed neatly. The brushworks really worked well. Simply amazing.

Simple Things by Veer
Also fell in love with this layout the moment I saw it. Love the depth of the page. The big flower lead my eyes to the adorable and fun photo. I appreciate the bits and pieces along with all the splats and glitz that add so much color to the page. Fantastic!

Wish by Leablahblah
The photo, especially the eyeshadow, is gorgeous and so is the beautiful bride. The kit is perfect for this layout. The clustering of flowers on both sides made the page more inviting. Overall outstanding use of template. Glad you got what you wished for.

Lost in Thoughts by Scribler
Another artsy photo-less art journal. Love the vibe it exudes and the stacking she made here. I guess we all have moments like this at some point. Well done!

Road to Vegas by Blackkathy
What a great perspective! Awesome big photo with all the blending works, it surely is an amazing layout.

T is for Together by Cath VP
Breathtaking! Wow! Love the composition, the blending work, and the overall feel of the page. Stunning!

Thank you for taking the time to cruise with me and my picks for today. Should you have time, please leave some well deserved love in the digi world.

Finger Pointing- December 2nd

Hi everyone!

Happy 2nd day of December. WOW! Only a few weeks more before 2024 kicks in. I hope you guys are enjoying the Christmas feel or just enjoying the last few weeks of December. I am contemplating on making some digital layouts when I get some free time from work. It’s been a busy couple of weeks but I am thankful for everything. This will be my last post for this year, I’ll see you all next year.

Wishing everyone a Happy Holiday Season and an awesome 2024! Sharing my top six for today.

Cozy Christmas by TrishB
I love this magical layout! So much to look at, love how she did the frames and how she blends everything. Gorgeously done. This could be on a cover page of a magazine or even a Christmas card. The wordings are also very Christmasy.

12Days-Day-1 by taxed4ever
Love the clean design, so beautifully done. I can relate with her routine. Love the little cluster.

Joyful by G. T.
Templates are a sure thing when you want to get your mojo back. I love using templates and would sometimes even create a new one for inspiration. I would then reverse or tweak the template according to my liking. Beautiful mix of everything here. Amazing use of elements, perfect way to use a white background to highlight the page. Awesome work!

Snowflakes dance by Brigette
Breathtaking page! Just amazingly done.

Go Look Back by lacy
Such wonderful memories of her parents. Beautifully designed with a mix photo treatment. Love the flow of the page, plus the blending and shadow works too. All the bits and splats are great additions to this page.

DYD_ Document your December by ajm
Great Hybrid job!

Thank you for taking the time to cruise with my picks for today. Should you have time, please leave some well deserved love in the digi world.

Captured by OKate
Wonderfully captured moment together. Although this is a scrap lift page, this is equally beautiful and the photo is worth scrapping for posterity. Love the clean and crisp design as well as the paper used with all the elements here. So simple yet stunning!

Us by mrsashbaugh
This looks like a traditional scrapbook page. Love the patterned paper strips and arrangements. Not to mention the wonderful photo treatment that goes well with the entire page. Great work on the shadows and cluster work.

While I breathe, I hope by lacy
Stunning! Great blending, the light coming from behind the cardinal creates a great effect. I’m speechless!

Love how she did her journaling around the whole page, it flows perfectly. The composition is amazing! Love the vibrant colors and overall creativity here.

Holiday Ornaments by Dawnmarch
Great hybrid work! It looks amazing with tassles and beads, simple yet elegant.

Finger Pointing – Oct 14th

Hi everyone!

Hope everyone is doing fine and enjoying the weekend. My favorite season in Japan is finally here! I love Autumn so much and I miss Tokyo now. This is Beth, a.k.a. kewl_jive, bringing you today’s amazing standouts.

Here are my top six for today.

Love what you remember by Pamp
Gorgeous Heritage page, love the flow of the page and the beautiful photo treatment which goes perfectly with everything here. Special mention as well to the colors and elements used here and there. The splats and brushworks are done beautifully.

If you can dream it by Cath VP
Another page that deserves to be mentioned here. Amazing linear composition, love the inking and doodling around the page and how it bonds together with the elements used. Fantastic use of black and white photo.

5 Fall Faves by mrsashbaugh
Agreed with everything she said. Love Autumn so much especially the cooler weather, scents, and changing colors of leaves. The month of October is very dear to me since it’s my birth month. This is a fabulous photo-less layout. Well done on the page, the stitches around it and the layers of different flowers make this page absolutely rock!

Party Time by nollipap
Such a whimsical layout! The brushworks and composition are superb, nicely done with the masking too. Love all the splats around the page. Just by looking at this, I know you’ll love it too.

Pumpkin Spice by Kayleigh
I always love her layouts and this one is no exception. From the stitches around, sequins and just about everything on her page is done beautifully. Love the use of background since everything pops. Also, love the nitty gritty elements she added.

Turn It Up (SSL#1) by mosbaskets
This turned out awesome. The big textured photo and masking add beauty to the page. Great photo as well.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my picks for today. Should you have time, please leave some love in the digiland. Enjoy your weekend! 😉

Xo,

Finger Pointing- August 5th

Hi everyone!

Happy Saturday! Technically it’s already Sunday in my side of the world and we’ve been busy enjoying the summertime in Tokyo. I hope those in the southern hemisphere are snuggling up with their fave winter blanket. My eldest daughter just arrived late tonight from Manila and we are finally complete.

This is Beth, a.k.a. kewl_jive, bringing you today’s gorgeous layouts. Enjoy and have a fabulous weekend.

These Days by AmyL
I just couldn’t resist this sweet photo that was captured perfectly. Love the simple but really beautiful composition and how she stacked the background with papers and all the nitty gritty embellishments. I will definitely treasure this for her to see the page when she’s all grown up.

Happy Go Lucky by Imaggs
Another simple yet amazingly done layout. The photo treatment goes really well with the background paper. And the simple cluster of elements on the left side, this page truly deserves to be here. Those hearts really made us focus on the beautiful child. Great photo and page!

Hiking by IntenseMagic
The grungy background sets up the page for another fabulous composition. Love the vertical design and the shadow works. The mixed flowers and brushworks are placed perfectly. This really caught my eyes in the gallery. Wow!

Together by *Gina*
Can this be any sweeter? Just breathtaking. Love the monochromatic design. The photos are so sweet and beautiful. The black and white treatment and feel of the page screams happy together.

Exploring Rome by Jeanette
What a great blending! I can’t think of a better word to describe how amazing the page is. I love how everything works together here.

High Rock Lake by Vickyday
Despite the hot weather, the page turns out to be beautifully scrapped. Love the color combinations and the orange accents and the whole composition. I hope you’ve recovered to an almost heat stroke scenario. Glad that you’re okay.

I hope you enjoyed the pages I picked for today. If you have time, please leave some well deserved love for our top six for today.

Cheers,
Beth ^-^

A New Chapter by Claire Grantham

Dress details by shannonrolle
This is completely beautiful! So soft and perfectly done. Love the way she used the frames, it makes the page more appealing with the doilies and other elements. And the vintage background paper is just breathtaking as well as the blue paper.

What a night by Connecting Keeper
Beautifully done! Love how she arranged everything and documented the moment. The mix of flowers add beauty to the page. How fun to watch your country win the game.

Thrive by Ana Santos
Great extraction! Love the creation she made on the layout and the brushworks. The flashes of color, the scribbles really set the page. Those little flowers are nice additions to the page.

Not all things by Sucali
Wonderful panoramic view! Just wow! Love all the bits and pieces she added, all the brushworks and the cluster work done. The paper used with all the stamps and brushes are intricately done.  Awesome work!

Insta addict by Keepscrappin
Fabulous freestyle page and photo! I adore how things are spread perfectly and the splats here and there. Great page and composition. Beautiful balance on the page.
