Finger Pointing – December 11th

Happy Monday!

Snow Business by Elizabeth22 brings to mind 20 of my own Christmas seasons spent in the sun rather than the cooler temperatures of the country of my birth. Loving the pinks and lilacs here – an unusual colour combo for the topic but delightful nevertheless!

Hello Junior Year by nana_vg is a great design with really pretty detail and super texture and shadowing. Love how clean and bright this is… just glorious!

122023SLC-SucaliSMALL by AnotherAmanda is a terrific monochrome page with a single pop of tangerine. A wonderful page and I so love that scribble!

Sisters by Shannamay is so beautifully neat with all its vibrant layers. Love how all the detail pops against the rich backdrop. So pretty!

Us Together by AnaSantos has me wishing I could scrap like this. So much beautiful blending (I’m blending challenged) while the golden yellows and blacks make for a truly striking piece of art!

2023 December SSL Reel It In by grandmak makes for a perfect finish to this post. Love all the seasonal detail and those little slide reels are the best! Cute!

This will be my last post for a while and all that remains is for me to say is compliments of the season to you all, take care and happy scrapping!

Finger Pointing – November 27th

Life’s just a tad crazy for me right now so just a short post from me today!

Love the simple yet classic design and the subtle use of patterned paper that support the topic of Delish by carollee. Great selective colouring on the image too!

I always enjoy a mixed media age like Embrace by SanVHM. Love the Autumn tones!

Great blending and framing on Mammoth Hot Springs by Stacia… makes me wish blending would work for me!

Always admire those that can work with photo treatments like City Life by Roxana. Love the contrasting colours!

Such a terrific use of elements and great clustering on Everything about Me by sarkavka. Super muted tones with pops of colour too!

Mini Album – Grace by Larissa reminds me how much I used to enjoy my paper scrapping! Check out more images of this cute little number!

As much as I’m a “keep Christmas in December” kinda girl, I couldn’t resist sharing Thankful by adrianita. Loving those greens!

Hope you’ve enjoyed my picks… click on the links when you’ve got a spare moment and leave a comment or two! Till next time, take care and happy scrapping – whether that’s paper or digital!

Finger Pointing – October 22nd

Happy Sunday! Hope your weekend has been everything you’d hoped. I worked yesterday but I’ve enjoyed a leisurely day off today with a little scrapping and of course, a browse through the galleries so I can bring you this post… and here’s some of the fabulous pieces of art that I found.

First up is October Template Challenge by Domi092. An incredible splash of colour with it’s large word art and fun photo… love it!

Blending is the order of the day for Look Close and See by Shannamay. The layers, together with the photo frame that showcases the wonderful find of nature, add depth while the shadowing is perfect! So beautifully done!

To Be Alone by ViVre is such a stunning design with the majority of the detail to the right, balanced with the smaller detail to the left. Great clustering and a super colour palette… amazing!

Life is Good by nana_vg lives up to its title with its warm, vibrant colours and the large image. A real eye catcher if ever I saw one!

AnnaColorLiftOct23 by MDiane lets the image do the talking with the simplistic design. Love that the photo really steals the show… just stunning!

Elliot’s First Concert by bluedraft52 just makes me gasp! The atmosphere of the concert is well and truly captured in the page… simply outstanding in every way!

I hope you’ve enjoyed these amazing pieces of work. When you have a spare moment, please click on the links above and leave a comment or two for the artists, I know they will appreciate it. Till next time, take care and happy scrapping!

Finger Pointing – September 29th

Evening all. I hope you’ve all had a good week and that you’re heading into the weekend for some well deserved R&R. I’m working this weekend but then I just have a couple of shifts in the week and thereafter I’ve got a whole 10 days off and I simply can’t wait!

In the meantime, I’ve found some crackers in the galleries today… let’s take a look…

Time for T-Ball by Amy L is so cute. It’s a page full of passion and I love how she made the template her own with all the additional detail. Gorgeous soft tones also make this page a standout!

I always enjoy a page that sends a message to my soul and Peace & Calm by *sylvia* does just that. Beautifully done and so wall worthy!

I’m also a sucker for a page with a large photo. Bookworm by sucali is a delightful composition and I love how the centred detailed is nicely balanced by the clusters left and right. Gorgeous!

The glow of Beach Days are the Best by G T grabbed my attention – I love the mood that the photo’s bring to this page. Seriously love this!

Extractions always make a page super unique and Sweetest Cousins by Shannamay is the perfect example. Coupled with perfect layering and clustering, this page is pure eye candy!

Happy by zotova has been created using a fabulous selection of mixed media and I love the contrast of dark and light. I long to create pages like this!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my picks for today. When you have a spare moment, please leave a comment or two for the artists by clicking on the links above. Till next time, take care and happy scrapping!

Finger Pointing – September 10th

Incredibly sorry to be running terribly late today. I’ve been a little scatty all week and I had a diary reminder for my post today which alerted me mid afternoon but yeah. It’s now midnight. Life! So… keeping it short and sweet today by simply showcasing my picks.

Big City Life by Ana Santos

One in a Million Child by dotcomkari

Birthday Girl by Jam-on-toast

Priceless by myssp

Bookworm by marijke

Your Father’s Daughter by bbe

I hope you find all these pages as inspiring as I do! Till next time, take care and happy scrapping!

Finger Pointing – August 28th

It’s been a lazy day around here today, the last public holiday until December. How is that even possible… but it is! Our weather is changing and I’m probably in the minority but I can’t wait for Autumn. The rich, golden tones, pumpkin spice latte’s and sweater weather! In the meantime, I’m about to show you some cracking summer pages before the turn of the season, together with a few showcasing some darker tones like those I’m waiting for!

First up is By the Shore by adrianita. Love the vertical display of beachy elements, the torn frames and the obvious fun that the children are having! Such a delightful, feel-good page!

Best Fun by tracermajig is also a terrific vertical design. Love the watery backdrop, the circular cut out and all the little tropical details that adorn the super cute photo. Simply amazing!

Love the linear design of Het Zomerhuis by Myammeke. Traditionally a Project Life format, the grid works so well in documenting the fun of splashing about in a fountain! Love that the minimal elements allow the photo’s to completely tell the story. Wonderful!

Using patterned paper as a backdrop is a skill in itself because it’s so easy to lose the finer detail of a page. Not so with Sunny Days by scrapapicture! Super neat layers form the base for the gorgeous image, ensuring that the backdrop doesn’t detract the eye from all the glorious details. A beautiful page that makes me smile!

Despite all my years of scrapping, I’ve still to master the blending aspect. Whether it’s my own images that just aren’t suited to blending or that it’s just not a style that comes naturally to me, I don’t know, but I look at pages like Loch Lomond by Applechick with awe… a stunning page that’s just so wall-worthy!

My post wouldn’t be complete today without sharing Early Autumn by veer. Love the backdrop, those beautiful, muted tones and the choice of elements that make up that terrific cluster. So, so beautiful!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my picks for today. When you have a moment to spare, please click on a link or two above and leave a comment for the artists. Till next time, take care and happy scrapping!

Finger Pointing – August 8th

Happy Tuesday! I hope your week has got off to a good start and that you’re going to find some scrapping time by the time the weekend arrives!

Kicking off my post today is The Golden Hour by Shannamay. What a page design! Love how the curves take my eye through all the detail and the textures and blending throughout the page are incredible… simply amazing!

Curious by Rochelle86 is another terrific page design. I love the title work and the strips making up the main image on the page. The circle frames bottom right balance the layout perfectly and the use of colour is wonderful. Lovely page!

Outfit of the Day by akizo simply shouts fashionista! Great background to set off the super cute images while the splatters add a little glitz to the glamour of this page. Simply adorable and so magazine worthy!

Dogs Make Life Better by grandma lynnie is so heartwarming! The blended elements create the perfect backdrop for the sweet photo that simply steals the show and those little paw prints finish the page of perfectly. A beautiful page full of warmth and love!

The Temple Bar Hotel by Jill is so full of glorious energy with its striking colour palette. Love the large photo, the use of patterned paper and the pretty floral cluster that draws the eye to the journaling. Fabulous!

Rounding up my post today is Sunny Days by scrapmevrouw. Again, great use of patterned paper, great layering, and I love the photo grid that’s nicely embellished. A gorgeous feel-good Summer page!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my picks for today. When you get a moment, please click on the links above and leave a comment or two for the artists. Till next time, take care and happy scrapping!
