Finger Pointing – July 28th

Well hello there!

Little bit later in the day than usual, as I swapped my days 🙂

I have had such a fun and creative month, I really hope you have too. I can’t believe August is nearly upon us. Make sure you enjoy what is left of the summer!

PMjames – Point of View

I loved the different way that the photos are laid out on this page – clustered around a central photo, but not a really large one. I also really love the mix of colour and b&w photography. The minimal and carefully chosen elements just compliment the page perfectly. When I was reading about this page, turns out it is page 20 of a travel album, so I am going to go back and look at all the other pages.

Cinna – Road Trip Fun

Loving the happy smiles in this photo, looks like the road trip was fun. I really like the layers and the clusters under, around and on top of the photo, really drawing your eye into the photo. It all really pops off of the grungy background and I love the subtle stamped ‘car selfies’ I am all about a car selfie!

CarlaW – Wanderlust

The title paired with the photo made me laugh! I wonder where Carla’s cute kitty is planning to go next? Love the soft blues for the background papers, with the wonderfully bright and full cluster just leaping off the page. I am a big fan of weaving string, twine, ribbon, banners through my pages, so I loved the little peeks of the red twine and the cute banner at the bottom.

Dalis – Where is my Super Suit?

I love love love this! The giant title is wonderful. So inspired to use this kit to document Dalis’ joy at her interview. I love the big ray paper and the b&w photo is perfect, with all the colour pops from the elements, giving the page even more energy.

Michele Hillam – More Please!

The colours and the amazing shadow work made this standout for me. When I read the journaling I couldn’t help but smile. Love that one of her first words was ‘more’ LOL. The grid paper background is really nice and helps the photos, journaling and minimal elements pop. So pretty.

Kiana – Free Yourself

Kiana’s layouts are always so fun and bright. I love the unusual page design here, with peeks of the papers at the edges. The flow across the page is perfect and I love the mix of ‘realistic’ and drawn flowers. The colour palette is so nice, I love the strong blues with the soft pinks and peaches. Again another wonderful example of how great a page can look when you weave a piece(s) of ribbon through your clusters.

Well that is all from me today, I hope you go and show these talented scrappers some love. I’ll see you in August! Keep scrapping and have a wonderful evening.

Hello all! It’s Addie (agoymerac) here with today’s shout outs! It is always such a pleasure to look through the galleries–so many amazing layouts out there!!

The first page that caught my eye was “Us and Them” by dawnfarias. What a gorgeous page with the layering, journaling, awesome photos, and overall fun vibe!

Next, “All About You” by jcaruth910 has such a clean design, wonderful family photo, and perfect splashes of color.

Next, “Jul22_Random_ParisianCafe” by bjthomas put a big smile on my face. What a fun, playful design that is just perfect!

Next, “Lullaby and Goodnight” by nana_vg is so soft and lovely. How precious is every detail!!

Next, “michelle-p18” by pmjames is so lovely with all its layers, different types of media, and that watery photo just called to me!

Finally, “July Multi Photo Challenge” by hkeith87 was a real show stopper! That layered photo collage is just gorgeous mixed with the lovely colors and title!

Finger Pointing – July 25th

Good day, friends!  Heidi Nicole coming at you this evening…  I don’t know about where you’re from, but it.is.hot.  Sitting here in the air conditioning and perusing the galleries is the perfect place to be!  Hope you are happy, healthy, and joyful!

Here’s my picks for today…

forest magic by andastra

This is such a gorgeous pocket page!  It’s whole vibe is magical, and the photos tell an amazing story.  I love that some of the photos and journal cards have frames and some don’t.  It adds interest and depth.  Beautifully created!

JULY by SweetChar

This TITLE!  What a fun way to use a big title/word.  I love the fun photos in the foreground… and that shadowing!  The frames are amazing and realistic, and the tucking and stacking is beautifully done.  Love it!

Tracy Arm Glacier by amyjcaz

This beautiful white space layout is so lovely…  the sweet blue ink in the background pairs beautifully with the white.  I love the vertical design and the perfectly placed elements.  The shadowing is done realistically and it all comes together flawlessly!

Hugs and Kisses by Pachimac

This is a total standout!  I adore the big XOXO and the black and white vibes going on here.  The pops of mustard yellow are tasteful and lovely.  This page gives me all the feels!

Magic by ajm

What a grungy treasure this is!  The background paper and the ink stamps are spot on.  I LOVE the circle framed photo and all of the lovelies tucked in behind it… this is truly a magical layout and it makes me happy!  The pops of blue are the icing on the cake here, and I love every little thing about it!

2022 July by Thuria

Loving these beach vibes!  This page exudes joy and summer… and I kinda can’t get enough of it!  I love the diagonal design, which really goes well with the background paper and scattered elements.  And that smile!!!!

That’s all I have for this evening!  Remember, leave some love on these beauties!  Stay cool, friends!

Finger Pointing – July 24th

Hello my friends!   Some of us are wrapping up our weekend and other’s their Monday is well under way! So just sliding right into your inbox and bringing you some fabulous inspiration to either finish your weekend on a high or make your Monday more bearable!

You and Me by louso

Not only is this color palette gorgeous, I love the elegant look that was achieved, which isn’t always easy to do when using paints and messy threads.  I love the use of the black and white photo that looks like it has a soft color overlay to make it better match the color palette.   It’s just the right balance of the blood er olive green, the gold and black to make the photo really standout.

The Silence of Nature by jiserv

I love the background paper choice and how it matches the photo so well.  That cluster is perfection and the use of the paints/overlays under the cluster is perfect to complete this look.

Summer Vibes by Anja_77

LOVE the bright colors.  It really does feel like summer.  The treatment of the photo is perfect to give that underwater feel.  The layering and the clusters are gorgeous and I love the word art going up the side of the whole cluster.

1948-Lookin-Back-davenport-redone by Iowan

Love this gorgeous grungy background and the mixing of the kits used in this layout is fantastic.  I really am partial to black and white photos and this  one definitely tells its own story.  Love all the layers as it’s the layers that really make this layout come to life.  I think what I love most about this layout is that there are no flowers.  I’m so used to using at least one flower in my layout and to see a layout without any…. well I love it and I’m going to challenge myself to attempt this as well!

Best Dog by GonewiththeWind

I’m always in awe of Cheryl’s layouts.  She is absolutely the best at mixing all the patterned papers together and it always works.  I love all the use of the bold colors mixed in with the paints .  The little tag/word art cluster is pretty fab and then rounded out completely with the gorgeous black and white photos!

 

Seashells by Adryane

I LOVE all this white space.  The subtle blending of the photo just pops right off this page.  How about that bottle with the scatters in it?  How amazing is that.  My absolutely favorite, is all the journaling.  You really should swing by the gallery and read all the journaling.

Hope you enjoyed my picks for today.  If you get a moment, swing by and leave these amazing artists some love!

Until next time!

Hugs-

Esther (mywisecrafts)

Finger Pointing – July 21st

Hello Scrappers!  I hope you’re staying cool if you’re in this heat wave like the one we’re in.  Trying to stay cool?  Check out the amazing galleries around Digi Land.  Here are the Gallery Standouts that I’ve selected for you today.

Who Put The Bomp by taxed4ever

This layout had me singing for the longest time after I saw it.  How much fun is this page with the couple dancing and all of the Rock and Roll elements?  Really brings back memories to this “rock n roller”.  I love how the lyrics are also printed out on the page.  A real blast from the past!

BBD July Challenge by Scrapmevrouw

I love the photographs and the lovely florals that are surrounding them.  It’s such a lovely, happy page and the word art is the perfect, finishing touch.  The photo in the back of the page is the perfect anchor for this delightful layout.

Circle of Life by Lynne Anzelc

How moving is this layout?  I love seeing designer’s pages in the galleries and this one doesn’t disappoint.  The final picture really brings into perspective “the circle of life”.  Well done and beautifully executed.

Heads Up by grandma lynnie

Is this not the sweetest little face???  I absolutely fell in love with this baby and the lovely, minimalist layout really brings total focus to the image.  I adore the cute, bright border paper that really sets off this adorable page.

I Am by mom2jackaia

These photographs just scream “Summer” to me!  The multiple photos are so sweet, and I love all of the perfect elements and the journaling card!  This is just a wonderful, summery layout and just makes me happy.

Life is A Gift by keligirl!

One of my scrapping loves is Art Journaling and this page really fits the AJ bill for me.  SO much to look at and the layering – wonderful!!  You- can look deep into this page and I agree – Life REALLY IS a gift!

That does it for me today.  I hope you’ve enjoyed my choices.  If you get time, please click on the name of the page and leave these artists some love.

Til next time,

Cheryl

Finger Pointing | July 18th and 19th

Oh boy!  You are in for a treat today – a double feature!!!  The galleries are popping with such delightful works of art and memory keeping layouts.  There are plenty of beach vibes and summer nights!

12_09_20 by Lauriezyskind

The beach is delightful place to be, especially in winter months with empty sandy shores.  It is lovely to observe the grasses and miles and miles of beach front.  Laurie has such a wonderful shot of Myrtle Beach and its SkyWheel. The layout is beautifully crafted with the small cluster at the top and the addition of the palm tree photo and tag.


Sunshine & Laughter… by ClaireG

The title that keeps going on and on…and on made me giggle!  Yellow is such a wonderful color for the pictures – bright and merry!  Paired with the black text and outline on friendship, there is a bit of a NYC Taxi Cab vibe – perfect for this NYC reunion!.


Studio – Zoo by JanisT

What a delightful nighttime scene created by Janis!  She captured the magic of summer nights filled with fireflies and fragrant flowers.  Let’s have a moon dance!


Mum & Dad by Jaydubbya

This layout is beautiful in every way…from the picture to the flowers.  The illusion of depth is quite delightful too with the soft shadows and angled key and text.


Living the Good Life by Faerywings

Ooooo – this looks like delicate collage work! So lovely and ethereal. The green and blue stamps are wonderful compliments breathing life into the piece.


Noted by Sylvia

Speaking of collage work – Noted by Sylvia pops from the gallery will all those bits and pieces of brightly colored papers, stamps, and ribbons.  The little details drawn one in, like the star and paper bits in the lower right corner.  This is a festival for the eyes.


Travelers by Helenedubois

Helen’s blending is superb! The neutral tones of the paper provide the perfect backdrop for the photo.  And the framing of the subject draws the eyes in.  The camera and travel days word art are perfect embellishments, too!


Reflection by 3BluEyedBabi

Wow!  This is pretty!  The little clusters are perfect compliments to the photo – which looks like a perfect summer day!


You Make my Heart Sing by HeatherB

The lack of background papers make the flower embellishments and photo stand out.  I adore the color matching between the photo and flowers.  The Heart stamp adds the perfect amount of artiness too!


Birthday Shopping by Honeyandcheese

Oh my gosh – the little man with the little cart doing his birthday shopping is too cute!  There is great storytelling by Rebekah and the page design is fantastic!  The arrows are perfectly placed, and I love how “walked carefully” was highlighted in yellow.  This layout is truly delightful in every way!


The Beach by Zakirahzakaria

This layout is breathtaking!  The photo is atmospheric and moody.  The elements are perfectly placed at the bottom, representing beach flora.  Zakirah crafted a masterpiece!


CampFire by WVSandy

Wow!  This layout captured a bit of summer magic!  The big cutout title is fun and eye catching. The blue papers are perfect with the yellow flames in the background!    I want to go and make S’mores now – ha!


Keep making magic my dear friends!

Have a great week!

Lisa (aka Armygrl)
