Finger Pointing- April 2nd

Konnichiwa from Tokyo. Hope you are having a nice weekend as I am. I had fun with friends today and then went straight to Odaiba with my family. I always love Sakura in Japan. It got colder again so we all had ramen for dinner. Yum! Anyway, have a great weekend everyone! This is Beth, a.k.a kewl_jive, bringing you today’s gorgeous pages.

Here are my top pages for today.

Can’t Forget this Day by marijke
This is a masterpiece as always! Love her work and the effect she made on the page. I will definitely give this a try one of these days. Couldn’t stop my admiration for this page. She could hang this on her wall as a painting. The elements she added blends perfectly. Great job and truly deserving to be mentioned here.

The Great Outdoorr by Dady
Fabulous composition/page. I adore how everything is placed beautifully, from the sepia photo down to all the details and elements she put on the page. The background paper is fantastic, not sure if this was mixed with other papers but the result is gorgeous and so is the photo. Well deserved to be included here.

Creative life by Shannamay
This page makes me happy, makes me remember all the Play Doh days with my kids. Beautiful ripped vintage photo that goes nicely with the paints and torn element. So little elements but says it all with the extracted photo that looks so nice. Another pat on the back.

New Beginning by carolwenxin
So pure of energy! Adorable lil one and beautiful clustering. Love all the details and the kit is just perfect. Love the saying here and it goes like “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Love is about creating yourself. Beginnings are always exciting and scary at the same time but it gives us hope to always be a better person everyday. Another amazing job.

Some Days are… by RJMJ
Couldn’t stop looking at this gorgeous page. I’m in awe with all the details she created, so vibrant, so unique and how she expressed her feelings artistically. Great blending and composition in every way! Truly deserving to be here.

Set yourself free by chigirl

Fabulous freestyle design. Love all the circles, mix of papers and all the flairs she added which made the page shine. The quote is very inspiring and love the color of her hair that matches the background paper. The scribbles and brushworks really set the page and truly deserved to be here.

Thank you for taking the time to browse my top six for today. It would be amazing to give them some well deserved love in the digiland/galleries.

Finger Pointing- March 26th

HI everyone!

Greetings from Tokyo, Japan. Yep! Finally, we are back here. Glad to be back for spring and the weather is unpredictable. There are times when it gets so cold and then suddenly warm. Anyway, tomorrow will be the last day to view the cherry blossoms so we will go out to experience Sakura again. I just love spring time in Japan. This is Beth, a.k.a kewl_jive, bringing you today’s gorgeous layouts.

Here are my top 6 for today.

and they lived happily ever after … by Adryane
This is just beautiful as well as the journaling. Love the story behind the photo and the page is done masterfully overall. Beautiful artsy paper and the mix of everything here is nice. The stitching seals everything as it looks like two pages connected to each other.

Tree of life by cfile
Love the page the first time I saw it. Such a freestyle design! An artsy design from top to bottom. Love everything about the page including the layering and the right amount of elements. It really deserves to be included in the standouts for today. The splats and scribbles are just pretty additions to the page.

Serendipity by amyjcaz
Such a wonderful and amazing page. Love the composition and how she arranged the layout with background papers overlapping each other. The shadows on the ribbon are superb. Love the font she used as well, I wonder what it is. The laces really set the page and create an overall amazing design.

Snapshots by EHStudios
So sweet and super adorable. Love photos like this. My kids weren’t able to pet a dog due to allergies though they were able to experience to pet a dog for an hour. Yep! We rented a dog for an hour here in Tokyo. Beautiful dollies in different colors and sizes. A nice way to show them off with the slated design. Love the flowers, brushworks, and minimal use of elements. Adorable photo and a fantastic page.

Chasing Sunshine – Anna Maria Island, Florida by grantlaurensmom
I just love pages celebrating love. Eight days of togetherness of just the two of them is amazing! Can’t wait to do this but even a day or two would be nice and will be very much appreciated. The island is so beautiful and relaxing. Gorgeous photo and page too. Love how everything is well coordinated and the color combination is so refreshing and the sticker like foliage of flowers and the arrangement is done beautifully.

Untitled by Poppy
Love the vintage feel of the page. The texture she created is just as wonderful as the page. Great blending technique and the scallops with stitches on the side. Great job on the page!

Here are my top six for today.

I’m ready by AJM
The design on this layout really caught my eye. Gorgeous work, looks like I can touch and feel the page with my fingers. The layering/stacking is superb. I just adore the elements used and the shadow works here. Love the splats and blings too.

Inspiration Can Come From Anywhere by Dorci
The galleries are full of amazing pages and this one is no exception. Love the blending and texture she made. I just adore her methods in coming up with this amazing page.

GreyHairDontCare by Amygrl
Very well said. Love the unique use of background paper and the pops of blue along with how she cropped the photo. Everything is done beautifully here. The placement of elements is just perfect. Love her mantra: “Gray Hair, Don’t Care”.

It’s okay if you don’t like me by Poppy
ROFL. Love what is written on the page. Such a fun page but really it means something and I agree with it. Awesome composition, love the lady sticker with bow and all the brushworks here and there. You go girl!

I’m a rebel by TrishD
How awesome! Love the feel of the page and how it looks like the extracted photo is just about to come off the frame. I totally agree with what she said, to be the Authentic You! So much to look at and I love it. The décor on the right side is lovely with a full photo that blends away. Great work!

Go Places by CoriK
What a great scenery! Just looking at it, made my smile and remember the beautiful beaches in Hawaii, been a long time since I was there. I haven’t been to Cancun but I’ve heard a lot of beautiful reviews. Love the goodies below the beautiful page, the brushes and stamps are just amazing. The ready made layers are divine!

Finger Pointing- January 29th

Hi everyone,

How’s everybody? Hope you are all having a nice time wherever you are right now. It’s a mixed emo for us as my husband went back to Tokyo after a great and memorable vacation here. We can’t wait to join him there soon. Have a great weekend! This is Beth, a.k.a. kewl_jive, bringing you today’s amazing standouts.

Love by Shutterbug5
The quotation is true and sweet, so is the page. I can totally relate with it. Love the photo-less layout and composition. The flow is just perfectly done with splats here and there and splashes of colors.

Hey There by sylvia
Could this be any cuter? I always love her use of white space, very simple yet sooo amazingly done. Love her choice of elements, it goes beautifully with everything here.

Drowning by RJMJ
At some point in our lives, we feel overwhelmed thus the feeling of drowning. Scrapbooking is such a nice way to release some stress and still be able to document our thoughts. Great way to reflect on her feelings. She did justice to the page. Very powerful!

Miss You by zakirahzakaria
This is a beautiful letter to her dad and I was sobbing as I was reading it. There were important milestones in my life that my dad wasn’t able to witness because he died when I was in college. My kids only knew him from photos and stories. Beautiful composition and layering. The choices of embellishments are just enough.

Discarded Lovers by Rikki
Fabulous freestyle design. Love what is written here. I couldn’t agree more. Awesome blending and the minimal elements were placed perfectly. The red stitches are awesome additions to the page.

Making Memories by Kayleigh
Great photo treatment. Love that she used white background to make the page more appealing. All the things she mixed and matched were placed intricately. Beautiful composition too.

Thank you for taking the time to browse my top six for today. It would be awesome to give them some well deserved love in the galleries.

The photo is so adorable! Beautiful clustering, love all the flowers and how she laid everything perfectly. The sides add beauty to the page. Feels like I can touch the page.

WOW! The photo treatment is just divine it totally caught my attention. Beautifully cropped/grained big photo. I’m enjoying all the brush works on the right side including all the splats.

Christmas Eve 2020 by Annsofie
I just love how this is done. Beautiful Christmas page, the composition and simplicity makes the page more appealing in my opinion. The green background paper really stands out.

Joyful by mediterranka
Another stunning page in white space. Super love her composition here, I’m a sucker for white spaces, love all the circles and the template she used. I totally agree with what she said. Amazingly sweet photos.

The reflection and blending is breathtaking! WOW! I so enjoy looking at her page, this is so relaxing. Great job! Beautiful quote to remind everyone to “take a break, pause for a moment and reflect”.

Finger Pointing- October 16th

Hi everyone!

Hope you are having a great weekend. Wow! Time flies real fast and before we know it, it’s 2022 already. So much has been going on in my side of the world but I do hope you guys are having a fabulous Fall and Spring whichever hemisphere you reside in. This is Beth, a.k.a kewl_jive, bringing you today’s amazing standouts.

Fall Magic by France
I just fell in love with this the moment I saw it in the gallery. So clean and crisp and the shadows on the vine are so beautiful. Anything about fall is just gorgeous and pure magic.

Color me Happy by VictoriaMarie
Another topnotch layout. Feels like I can touch the page. This screams happiness with all the colorful patterned papers. The layout is gorgeous as is the photo. Amazing shadows as always, her background goes perfectly well with the page.

Life is better with you by FL-karen
Breath taking page! Great work with all the brush works and random splats. The photo is so romantic, sunsets have that magical power with a nostalgic feel to it. Love the elements on the sides too, overall beautifully done!

Sad by chigirl
I can relate. This is very close to my heart as I also lost my dad too when I was 19. I wasn’t ready and that tragedy changed everything for me. Love the composition and the designs on all sides. The flowers peeking on the right side add beauty to the page. So much to look at and I love it to pieces.

Mr DIY by christellevandyk
What a great way to showcase the photos. The papers and elements used here are just perfect, love the cluster work too. I love watching my husband doing DIY work around the house especially for items bought from Ikea. He won’t stop until it’s done and he’s very meticulous, I guess all Engineers are like that. Great work on this page.

Crazy Busy by Amyjaz
Wow! What a busy schedule. Hope she finds time to relax and unwind. The alphas used here are perfect against the black chalkboard paper. Love the dollies on the left side and how she adjusted the opacity to really blend with the background paper. I also adore the typography here and how she did her title work.
