Finger Pointing – April 26th

Next weekend is National Scrapbook Day!  Are you as excited as I am?  It is time to be inspired and get your wish list ready!

Today I found great inspiration in the following layouts…

Early 1940 by kabrak1207

What a great way to start today’s post – a layout that captures the essence of scrapbooking and memory keeping.  The photo of her mother in law is priceless; and I adore the soft blended edges of the photo.

 

Soulful Serenity by Ginette

Next up is one of my favorite art styles – art journaling!  And this one is with pocket cards.  How marvelous is that!  This layout is full of positive Earth energy vibes! While many scrapbook to preserve memories of places and people, some simply like to make art.  I am often one of those people.  And digital scrapbooking supplies are a great tool that can help one express their inner self.

 

Eat Healthy! By Norma

I was pulled into this layout because my husband I and are making great efforts in eating heathier…and those dishes look delicious!  The clusters do too!  In addition to traditional scrapbooking to preserve memories of people and places, scrapbooks can be a great place to preserve recipes!

 

Darkness by CaroR

This layout is a great example of complementary colors in action.  The orange POPs from the blue.  This layout also has wonderful cascading – from the top with the ephemera bits all the way down to the paint splatters.  The beautiful artistry of scrapbooking is a fantastic form of self expression.  All the little elements and bits make me happy and get me excited – how about you?

 

Destination Yellowstone by Psawyer04

Scrapbooks are a wonderful place to relive moments in time and to revisit places that touch our hearts.  This traditional styled layout is endearing.  I love the sunflower with the Earth and vertical bits of paper.  There is such joy in preserving memories and reliving beautiful moments.  This layout exudes happiness.

 

A Beautiful Day by Romajo

I am always a sucker for rainbow colors and this layout is pure gorgeousness with its pastel rainbow.  I feel a scrap-lift coming on!  LOL!  I love making scrapbook pages – and I love being inspired by other’s artistry!  Our digital scrapbooking communities are full of awe-inspiring layouts!

 

My dear artisans and scrapbookers, I hope you found inspirations in today’s picks.  Keep visiting the galleries and remember to leave a comment or two on your favorites!  The love and light you spread can brighten someone’s day!

Till next time – happy scrapping (and NSD shopping!)

Finger Pointing – 13th April

Hey,

Happy Saturday to you all!

I hope you are having a great weekend so far? I’ve been having a quiet day, just hanging out with Hubby. It’s a beautiful day here in Tampa and my morning walk was especially pleasant today.

Huyentrang43 – Spring Vibes

This is such a pretty page. I feel the spring vibes! Super cute photo too. I love her amazing shadows and the pattern-mixed circles.

Tiffany Scraps – Noted

I love the soft colours here, especially with the black & white photo. The minimal elements really makes the journaling and the photo the hero.

Tativero – Love That

This is stunning. I love the elegant old-world feel of this page. The layers are wonderful and her shadows are perfection. The muted palette is lovely, with the brush work adding extra colour.

lencik_vredny – Hidden Places

Another pretty layout. I really love the composition here, the way she has arranged her photo cluster to align with the tear in the paper, is awesome and totally leads your eye into all the details. I love alpha beads and the way they have been used here is perfect. the amazing photo really shines in amongst all the fabulous details.

Leablahblah – Growing

Can we just take a moment and swoon at the most amazing cluster ever!! It is the most beautiful thing ever and must have taken ages to create. I feel like’s a flower crown for Lea in a key moment in her life. Gorgeous photos, she looks stunning.

Keepscrappin – Noted

I love everything about this. The soft colours are wonderful and make the black & white photo pop off of the page. I love the faded lines in the background, breaking up the background a bit.

Please go and show these talented scrappers some love. Hope you find some scrapping time this weekend.

Finger Pointing – April 9th

It is so much fun peeking through the galleries at the diverse array of scrapbooking layouts.  I am always amazed at the beauty, creativity, and memories preserved through photos and layouts.

BFFs by Robinoes66

Oh my goodness, those hats and this mother-daughter duo are too cute!  And this layout is all sorts of fabulousness with amazing colors and a great blend of pattern papers.

April24-Avatar-Challenge by Dunkie

Kayaking is so much fun!  And so is this lovely layout by Dunkie!  I enjoy the circular design and how the water trickles outside the circle and flows down the page.

Splendid by Demma_b13

This splendid layout pops from the gallery with its blend of red and magenta colors!  The tilt is a wonderful touch too!

Exploring by Scrapbookmama

The soft, earthy tones in this layout are soothing and the background photo is perfectly blended!

Pricesnow by PictureMom

I think we can all relate to this – sky high prices!  What an awesome example of a photo-less layout documenting life right now.

Mother Earth by Mary-11

There are touches of vintage and rustic vibes in this beautiful layout that I find endearing. I greatly enjoy the mix of 2D “brush” elements mixed with ephemera and the look of 3D flowers.

 

Thank you for stopping by to ooh-and-aah on today’s gallery standouts.  May you have a fabulous and blessed week!
