Finger Pointing – December 7th

Hi, all!! I hope you are having an amazing week and headed into a wonderful weekend ahead! I have been blessed this week with grandbaby #5 and we are all over the moon.

I hope you enjoy the ones I am sharing tonight!

Finger Pointing ~ December 6, 2022

Hello Digi Friends!!! It’s the first week of December, and boy am I seeing the most beautiful layouts and memories in the galleries!! It’s going to be hard to settle on just 6 of them!! This is my most favorite time of the year, and I love all the happy Christmas layouts I see around!  I know everyone’s busy, so I’ll keep my intro short!! Let’s dive in!

 

Alex Along the Shore by Iowan

This page most certainly glows along with Alex, the beautiful subject of the layout! I love the inventive way Carol uses the palette strips, and the wonderfully eclectic pieces of paper all around! The photo is perfect and the color choices are superb!

Annie, by Adryane

I was pulled into this page because of the vintage photo, and I was so happy to see that the story of Annie was in the credits! The blending on this page is amazing, and I think that the touches of gold just accent this beautiful page so wonderfully!

Christmas Magic by Outdoorry

The light in this photo reminds me of a Thomas Kincade painting!  The sparse elements allow the photo to shine, and the quote is so true about Christmas! I love the brush work and splashes of paint, and the ghosted bells and foliage are perfectly placed!

Frosty Morning, by bcgal00

You caught me – again entranced by the birds! You’d think I was an ornithologist or something!!! I just love the way Rae framed the birds in the wooden frames, but then the brushwork and paint behind them are just top-notch and perfectly placed!  The clusters are perfectly shadowed as well!

Christmas Blues, by eve11n3

I know not everyone enjoys the holidays, so this page was perfect for those times when you don’t feel so jolly. I know those feelings as my Mom died on Christmas Day. Sometimes it’s hard to be happy. She did a great job of making this sad fact beautiful though! I love the juxtaposition of the large and small fonts for the title, and her cluster is so beautiful. Her font choice for journaling makes it feel like an artsy part of the page! Hugs to all who find the season hard!

Twas the Night, by BlackKathy

Have you ever seen a more beautiful Christmas layout? The ghosted Santa looks like he’s hugging the sweet little child. Using the bell as a photo mask is brilliant! I love the tree and the reindeer coming out of it, and the way she varied the font size, spacing, and leading to make a wonderfully artsy page!

Well, that’s it for me today! I hope you enjoyed your stay with me and please do leave these ladies some wonderful comments on their pages. It means a lot.

Have a safe and wonderful holiday season!

Finger Pointing – December 2nd

The temperatures are cold, and the wind carries a bite.  Days are getting ever shorter and nights ever longer.  But the magic of the season is blossoming with ice crystals, snowflakes, ever green trees, and things that make us feel comfortable and warm, like a nice hug, a sweater, or a cup of hot chocolate.  Magic is in the air and this season seems to draw out a special kind of creativity.

Hugs by Keepscrapping

Yes, the cuddle is real when its super cold outside.  But the rosy cheeks and crisp, blue sky are delightful.  So are the wreath design and ginger snap cookies.

 

Hot Chocolate by dotcomkari

Mmmm…our very own blogger Kari crafted the yummiest of layouts!  The layers are so delightful and the warm colors are comforting and rich. I adore the sprigs of pine poking out here and there, adding to the feel of seasonal magic.

 

By Your Side by Roxana

What a lovely layout with exquisite shadows.  There is such a dimensional look here, it seems as if one could reach in and pluck out a flower.

 

Bricolage December by Jcaruth910

That icy blue color pops from the gallery!  I am ever the fan of collage art and mixed media and this layout ticks so many boxes – great design, great colors, interesting focal point.  Bravo on this magnificent piece of art.

Crafty And I Know It by Skinospot

Ha, ha!  I could not pass up this layout.  Sometimes my craft room gets so messy with supplies I can no longer craft!  Much love for this whimsical and fun layout.  I am such an admirer of “full” creations (not something I excel at).

 

Good Times by Oldenmeade

And we are back to winter magic!  There is something about this layout that makes me look closer and closer for Peter Pan…. seems like he should be flying about!  Gosh, this layout has dreamlike qualities.

 

J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan, “The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.”

Here is to making magical and flying!  Happy December.

Till next time,

Finger Pointing – December 1st

Hi all, and happy first day of December! Are we ready for all the festivities of the holiday season? I am not! I guess I better start thinking about it anyway.

I hope you enjoy the fabulous layouts I chose to share this evening!

Finger Pointing: Nov 30th, 2022

Good evening everyone, Kari here. Wow! Can you believe it is the last day in November already? Where has this month gone? Winter has decided to show its face here in Wisconsin we have seen some snow the last few days, and oh golly gosh the cold that has come with it! Today’s high was a whole 22 degrees! (brrrrr!!) talk about brutal! Perfect hot chocolate and snuggle weather!  Has made me consider buying the kids new gloves and hats as gifts for the Holidays. How is the weather around where you are? has the brutal cold hit you yet? have you seen snow flurries?

My first selection of the night has a wintery vibe. I found this beauty over at the Lilypad.

oh so quiet winter by LoveItScrapIt

I love her little cluster with the photo of her all bundled up nice and snug and warm! and than the pretty tree cluster on the bottom! And how she did the title on a tilt to line up with the lines of the background! perfectly brilliant!

My second beauty of the night I found over at Pickle Berry Pop. I went again with the wintery theme!

Comfort-Warmth by Renée

I love how she used the photo mask to include the photo of the sweetest little girl! and the scatter of snowflakes all around on the pretty background of greens and blues! With the cluster it just makes for the perfect page!

For my next selection I made my way over to the Sweet Shoppe where I found this amazing stunner!

Christmas Time by mrsashbaugh

OMG the cluster work on this is breathtaking! and I love all the photos she used! and the different shades of blue with whites and ivorys just pop! Such a stunner of a page! Amazing work!

My last and final entry of the night comes from Oscraps. Again I followed with the winter theme and found this fun layout showing off some snowy fun!

Snowboards by *sylvia*

    I been a long time admirer of Sylvia’s work! I adore her out of bounds work here on the photo! and how she repeated the snowboarder in color and than again in black and white! Really draws a punch! And how the snowy ground seems to go across the page! simply fantastic work!

    Thank you all for joining me tonight! I hope you all stay warm! See you all in Dec! Take care!

    Finger Pointing – November 28th

    Hello all, I hope your week has started off well. It’s a little chilly my side of the world and I was struggling to get warm tonight but as you may have guessed, a stroll through the galleries has warmed my heart. Here’s a handful of eye candy for you!

    I love the watercolour look of NBK_IMAGINE_AB_LO1 by Ann060606. It’s such a pretty page with dreamy blending, brushwork and delicate tones. And what’s not to love about a bag full of blooms and grasses?! Just gorgeous!

    This Year by biancka is so eye-catching with its plentiful layers. The subdued backdrop and cluster of black and white images allow the great mix of elements to pop, adding great contrast and depth. A really unusual ‘year in review’ page… I absolutely love it!

    PBP_November-Mystery-Box by LidiaG is a page with terrific vertical design with subtle change of colour horizontally. Such a pretty floral cluster to the left and I love the use of the multiple frames over the photo! So creative!

    A big photo and big word art always make for a striking page and You Are My Everything by bbe is a fine example. Love the blended backdrop and sweet photo… this page needs nothing more and is so magazine worthy!

    I love the message provided by the paper strips on Dream Big by EvelynD2 and the pink/blue/brown colour palette works so well with the sweet trio of images. Great brushwork, blending and framing bring this page together perfectly. Wonderful!

    Lucky Girl by Meibritt is a page full of energy and life and colour! Love the repetitive word art that’s broken up by the chunks of patterned paper, embellishments and title work, and how the ribbon twist draws the eye to the photo which is in complete contrast to the word art, apart from the title work. A delightful, carefree page!

    I hope you’ve enjoyed the artwork I’ve brought to you today. You know what you need to do… click on the links and leave a comment or two! Till next time, take care and happy scrapping!

    Finger Pointing – November 27th
