Finger Pointing – February 9th

Yes, I am spending my Friday night writing a blog post. I know y’all must be jealous now. 🙂 The good news is that the galleries today were filled with amazing pages. I wish I could show them all off. I definitely recommend  y’all find some time to peruse the galleries of digiscrapping land.

The World Awaits from Ana_Santos

As an avid digital art journaler, I love a great artsy page. Lots of paint and stamps just speaks to my heart. Needless to say I immediately fell in love with this page. I love the color combination. The page has great texture and of course I love all the paint and stamps.

Heart to Heart from shellylbi

First, I want to wish a big congrats to Shelly on 55 years of marriage. Quite an achievement. I love that so many photos were included on the page. I also love the great element cluster in the bottom right corner.

Be My Valentine from ScrapaholicSherry

I absolutely love the black and white heart and couple silhouette against that fabulous, colorful background. I love the feel like they are looking into a wonderful future together.

One of a Kind from stormchaser

I always love a great memory page and this is definitely one. I also love that so many great photos are included on the page. I also really like the great use of patterned paper.

Pez Dealer from ydpuckett7

When I saw the “Pez Dealer” headline, I knew that I had to include this awesome page. I love the newspaper feel of the top layer with all the layered patterned paper underneath. And the journaling here is so good.

Strength and courage from Norma

This page is gorgeous. Great textures and wonderful element clusters. I also really love the positive message of the page. I think it’s a message we all need to hear.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Don’t forget to take some pics and remember that today is a good day to scrap your memories.

Finger Pointing – February 3rd.

Hey everyone Claire here,

Happy weekend to you all! I am prepping for the arrival of my Dad next week and our annual cruise = WHOOP!

I took a moment to myself to browse through the galleries and it’s such a wonderful mix of love and winter. I really like the contrast.

Joansmor – Cabin in the Woods

The elegance of this layout just makes me so happy! I love that Joan has chosen to limit her embellishments and paint to the minimum to give a lot of lovely white space so that amazing photo just shines! I love it all!

IntenseMagic – Love Bug

We rarely feature each other here at GSO, for obvious reasons, but I could not resist this layout by Jan our amazing leader. I just love her oodles of pretty patterned layers, the clusters are gorgeous and the background is a bit of a jaw-dropper and all of that before I even get to the super cute photo!!

HeatherH – Love You

I was drawn in by the amazing border that Heather has created here. Bold, bright colours work so well with the b&w photo, making it really stand out. The mix of styles and the feel of crayon, just works so well. It’s such a eye-catching page.

Cinderella – Heart

 

I love art journal pages. They always feel like they came from deep within someone’s imagination and heart. I really love this one, it’s so pretty, and the simple but impactful journaling or quote really works for me. The cluster around the heart balloon is so beautiful and perfectly shadowed. This page just made me feel so peaceful.

Scrapchyck – Liz

White space, but pink?! Yes please! I love the almost monochrome feel to this page. The pops of yellow and the tightly clustered focal point are so perfect here. I love the little piece of paint, anchoring the whole thing perfectly.

annachris70 – Hello Winter!

I admit it, I am a sucker for patterned paper layers! The ones on this page are amazing! I love the stack with the minimal elements, so the photos are the focal point. The sketchy/drawn border is a lovely finishing touch. I just love the feel of white space here, even though the cluster/paper stack is large-ish. Very clever.

That’s all from me, I hope you enjoyed these layouts and will go and show these talented scrappers some love.

I’ll see you post my cruise! I hope you have a lovely rest of your weekend and get some scrapping time in.

2024 02 – Bellisae challenge by Thuria
What a wonderfully sweet photo and such a lovely page! I adore her layering of all the different kinds of elements and how she balanced the page perfectly with the smaller cluster! The sequin scatter is such a perfect touch!

 

Winter Wonder by Aimee Harrison
How lovely is this page!! That big photo is wonderful and I just adore her beautiful cluster work in the corers! The added snowflakes bring amazing dimension to the whole page! Wonderfully scrapped!

 

MOC12 Day 30: Online and IRL Friends by mary kate
This is such a fun and creative page! Love the connection to online friends. The computer with string and geotags is so cool and I adore the pattern on the map! The title is awesome and the banner is such a great addition!!

 

MOC12-31 Connect with Yourself by Monica Moriak
I absolutely adore a beautiful photoless page and this one is just so lovely!! I love her use of the papers and wonderful journaling in the middle! Such creative use of the frames and paper bits! Absolutely fabulous!

 

cyoa love 1 by Kiana
Ooooh this is just so lovely! I always adore Kiana’s work and could choose her over and over! Such a sweet photo and I adore the film strip and patterns! Such gorgeous cluster work and impeccable shadows!! Gorgeous!

 

And that will do it for me tonight! I hope you enjoyed my picks and will take some time to leave a little love for these amazing artists! Until next time, see you around the galleries!!

Finger Pointing – January 31st

It’s the last day of January y’all. Can’t say I am sad about it. I am happy to be here sharing layouts for my first post of 2024.

There was no way that these cat photos could not be included in today’s post. I am in love with them. I love the great patterned paper and choices and I really  like the element choices. This page brightened my day.

I always love a good fantasy page and this is my first great find of 2024. This is just a great scene. I feel like it takes me back in time.

Winter from Grace

I love the great color scheme used on this page. The flower clustering for the head piece is just fabulous. I also love the word art on the left side of the page.

Autumn Wood from Romajo

I absolutely love the gorgeous large photo on this page. The wonderful element clustering totally fits the page subject. And I really like the alpha choices for the title.

Love You from EllenT

This page immediately caught my eye when I saw it. I love the paper blocks. The alpha is just so fun and I think the colors fit the journaling and subject perfectly.
