Finger Pointing – February 25th

Is it just me or does the weekend always seem to pass way too fast. Before the clock strikes midnight and Monday is here, I want to share with y’all just a few of the amazing layouts in the digital scrapbooking galleries.

Urban Oasis from Zanthia

This page from Zanthia just gives off such a peaceful feeling. I really love the scene that she has created here. She did a great job with the extraction and I love that kitty element she included. This is a beautiful page.

Kingdom of Frost from Grace

I can just feel the cold coming off this page. And I’m in South Florida. 🙂 The page contains beautiful element clustering  and the head piece is just gorgeous. I think this page is just fabulous.

abd from Marnel

This is such a pretty page. I love the springy color scheme. I love the paper layering behind the photo and the great element clustering.

Dinosaurs from mnjenlittle

I love a great memory page and this is definitely one. I love that so many photos have been included. I really like the  use of patterned paper and great element clusters. This is a page that will be appreciated for years to come.

Enjoy It All from Scrappie Irene

This is another great page with a wonderful springy feeling to it. Great photo masking and I really like the element clustering. I also really like the word art choices.

Emerge from svanderhaegen

I love both the use of traveler’s notebooks in layouts and I love art journal pages. This combines both so I had to include it. I love the layered notebooks and all of the gorgeous paint. This is just a wonderful page.

I hope everyone has a great week ahead of them and that it includes plenty of scrapping time. Remember, today is always a good day to document your memories.

Finger Pointing – February 24th

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.

Happy Scrapping!

Finger Pointing – 23rd February 2024

Hey there everyone,

Sorry I am so late, but its my Dad’s last day with us before he returns to London, so after work I spent some QT with him.

As the Winter starts to ebb away, you can feel the change in the galleries.

Anja_77 – Simple Things

Love the elegance of this and the beautiful clusters that Anja has created. The soft colour palette tones really well with the photos.

Jheri – Sunshine

The composition of this page is fantastic, all the layers and the painty mess behind the photos are perfect. I love the duplicated photo, I need to remember this! I am always a fan of a big ribbon tail! Her journaling made me smile, you can see in her photos that she loves working from home.

crazycat1126 – Winter Sunshine

I love everything about this page, the colours are just amazing and the big cluster really draws your eye into the blended / masked photo. The hill paper just works so very well. The bird stamp is a really nice finishing touch.

*sylvia* – This Doesn’t Come Easy

I am such a big fan of Sylvia’s and this page is just gorgeous. I love the simple wide striped background. The small amount of elements and papers used creates such a big impact. And the muted colour palette works perfectly with the photo.

kristalund – You Are Enough

The super adorable photos lured me in here! I love the b&w photos paired with the wonderful colour palette. The hearts all over this page are a great detail and I love how many different kinds there are.

cinderella2009 – In Life’s Big Parade

This is just such a perfect example of a digital mixed-media page. It is fabulous. The image/sketch really brings to life the quote and Cindy’s shadows are just to die for!

That’s all for me, I will see you at some point in March. I hope you will go and show these talented scrappers some love. Have a fabulous weekend and get some scrapping time in.

Finger Pointing ~ February 22, 2024

Hello Friends!!! I hope today finds you well and happy and scrapping to your heart’s content!!! I love scouring the galleries for goodies to show you, so let’s get right to it!! And a reminder that if you have a few moments, give these ladies a comment on their pages! The page and their name are linked to the galleries they reside in!

Aiken-Rett by Anke

This is such a beautiful page done in wonderful neutrals so that you can really see these photos! I adore the blending of the building in the background and the imposed map as well. The title is perfect, and the stitched down polaroid camera photos are perfection! I want to go there!!!

February Quote Challenge by Cath Voisin

I’m a sucker for art journal type pages, and I found this beauty over at Just Art Scrapbooking. I love the way all the elements are blended so perfectly and there is so much to see! My eye keeps wandering all around the page to make sure I drink in all the artsy goodness!! I especially love the pile of books and the blended King. The wonderful touch is the bird cage with the birds flying out on top of her head. It makes me think that the birds are thoughts escaping!

Life is Beautiful by 01lousmith

Oh, isn’t this just so soft and romantic?? I adore that photo of the happy bride peeking over her groom’s shoulder and turning the photo sepia is perfect to blend into the fun ephemera on the bottom of the page. The blossoms are in gorgeous clusters, and the text blending into the background and the red paint tie it all together.

Small Victories by HeatherH

I was reeled in by the fat little bee, and kept looking with all the fantastic elements blending together so seemingly effortless!! The word quotes were great, and the butterfly papers all around are a perfect choice!!  I loved getting surprised seeing your photo tucked in with the rest of the fabulous items!!

Imagine That by PINCEMIN

I was pulled in by that wonderful photo treatment, and then I saw the cluster! WOW!!! So beautiful, and the entire page is just dreamy! Love the “Dream” in the corner – tells me that the page is about the older woman dreaming of either her as a child or a child of her own. Am I right?  LOVE THIS!

Simply Sparkle by pmjames

Sparkle is right!!! These photos just sparkle with life and fun! I love the way everything just explodes out of the background and having the two smaller photos just add to the fun! The title work is wonderful and I love the cluster of the 2 photos based on top of the textural background and cute elements.

SO there you have it – another peek into the galleries of digi scrapping! I hope you enjoyed this trip and I’ll see you in March!

Finger Pointing – February 20th

Is it springtime yet in the northern hemisphere?  No?  Oh, darn.  I’m ready for Old Man Winter to go away!

1. Santorini by Conniemiles

First up is a lovely piece with summery vibes!  Santorini is a place I’d love to visit.  For now, I’ll settle for dreaming while gazing at this gorgeous layout!

2. Wild About Books by Robinsismai

I adore the use of journal cards in this layout.  They serve as a great focal point and title!

3. Home Sweet Home by Chigirl

There’s no place like home!  And for a second, I though the “home” was a digital element. What a great photo and perfect kit to showcase it.

4. Warm Hearts by Scrapbookmama

For such an icy layout, this one is warming my heart!   I adore the scale of the elements and the overall arty vibe.

5. Right Up My Alley by Pizazzstar

The dark edges are fantastic! My eyes go right to the center to take in the cityscape.

6. Winter Warmth by Sylvia

Well, since winter is not over, let’s celebrate it with this winter inspired layout.  There is lots of “wow power” here with the collage look.

Till next time – have a great week and happy scrapping!
