November Cyber Crop

Hello scrappy friends!   Welcome to our November Cyber Crop.

This month we are all about shapes, and I have the pleasure of welcoming a Guest DT member Rosemary Hanson.  

This is also our last CC for the year!  So I hope you have fun with it and I look forward to seeing our gallery full of new layouts :)


Rosemary Challenge -  Squares                                                                                          
I was really excite to work with the Australian Cocoa Vanilla Studios "You rock" Collection which is available at Mystical Scrapbooks. It is ideal for boys, but hey girls wear blue too!!
My beautiful happy darling boy is now a handsome young man and I am so proud of him!

The papers I used were Cocoa Vanilla You Rock.

Faber- Castell deep blue gelato stick, shaved into Golden Light Moulding paste.
I also added Finnabair Glass Beads to add texture to the moulding paste, but I wouldn't do that again as it made the texture paste really hard to spread!!
Prima Finnabair stencil - Grungy Grid
Rainbow Splendour Embellishments and Corbett Creations Wood Veneers
Kaisercraft Rhinestones
Prima Sequins
KJKareen Accent Scrapbooking Flair
and of course Black bazzil (available from Mystical Scrapbooks too)

Looking forward to seeing how others interpret the challenge,  so upload to the blog and good luck!!


Karen 's Challenge - Stars 

Use as many stars as you like made from Pattern Paper mystical scrapbooks

Basic Grey Bow Ties for the die cut stars.  Forever is die cut from same paper 
writing is done by a thin black marker

I have created this in a very simple form because the photos are beautiful and I 
wanted them to catch your eye.  Stars seemed perfect to frame the photos of true love. 
Hand writing round the Stars and down both sides of my layout finish it off 

Layout of my son and his wife

Jodie's Challenge - Circle


Hello 
I can't believe its Cyber Crop for November...Wow where has this year gone?

My challenge is circles.

Use chipboard, stamps, stencils, enamel dots, dies, metal embellishments or maybe you would like to do an off the page project in the shape of or to represent circles. 

Think outside the CIRCLE!!!

Here is my take on the challenge

Mystical Scrapbooks

For this layout I have used the Bohemian Dreams range of papers and embellishments from Cocoa Vanilla.

The base is watercolour paper. I have a bit of an obsession with it at the moment.
To create the background I sprayed the paper with water and then used Distress Oxide Ink - Wilted Violet and Worn Lipstick.

mystical scrapbooks

The circle stamp is from Scrapbook Diaries - Gabrielle Pollacco
The chipboard circles are actually bubbles from Dusty Attic.


The die cut is from Kaisercraft.
Flowers are from my stash.
Enamel Dots are from the Bohemian Dreams collection, as are the buttons/flairs, tag, chipboard stickers and word stickers.


As you can see here I have used the dream catcher chipboard sticker to represent a circle shape. 



Thanks for stopping by and looking at the amazing work from the Design Team.
I hope you can join us too and I look forward to seeing your wonderful creations.
Until next time.

Challenge 2 - Jodie's Challenge - Mood Board

I would like to see you use the colour board for your inspiration and as we are celebrating our birthday, your page should reflect a big birthday....for example the Big 'O', First Birthday, 18th or 21st or maybe becoming a teen.

Here is my layout


SURPRISE!!!
On my 40th Birthday I got married. I had made a promise to my hubby that if we were still together by my 40th birthday, that I would marry him.
So we planned a 40th Birthday with a twist. We surprised the guests by getting married.
My wedding had a Bon Jovi theme (no surprises there!!)
So my wedding pages have Bon Jovi Song Titles.



For the background I have used Kaisercraft Paint.
Inked the edges in Charcoal.
The 'Our Wedding' Title is from Francheville.
The papers are from Simple Stories - Life in Colour.

I look forward to seeing your wonderful creations and remember to upload your challenges by midnight 29th October.

Thanks for playing along


Challenge 3 - Donna's Challenge - Use Numbers

As it's been 9 years since I made the decision to buy this little scrap shop, I would like to see you use numbers on your page... and if you use the number 9 anywhere you will win an extra prize!!  Everyone who uses a number 9 in any way, will receive a packet of bling... Only 1 condition, I must be able to see it, so let me know in your gallery post if it's a bit small or hidden :) 

Here's my example :)  



I've use some of the many many left over Thicker numbers that I have, painted them with Gesso and then used Kaisermists to add some colour.



I added some Cocoa Vanilla - Totally Rad,  Accessory Stickers and some glitter Nuvo Drops.

Gallery Pick- KathyLovesToScrap


KathyLovesToScrap is our Gallery pick this week and if you think you've seen the page above before you are almost right!! This page is from challenge one in our May CC and if you haven't seen the pages in the gallery I highly recommend it because they are all so different and all bring their own special touch to the design. Kathy was one of only two who chose to use a patterned paper for her page base and I think her choice and the papers she's matched with it are just perfect together and for the subject of her LO! I love all the little word art embellishments that compliment but not overwhelm the design. I like the pick paint dots which flow through the page and fact she chose to have her title just simple and co-ordinated. It's a great page Kathy- thanks for joining in on the challenge!

September Cyber Crop All About You! Challenges

Hi scrappy friends

For this month Cyber Crop we thought we would have some fun with our names, so in order to introduce our new DT members a little more,  our challenges this month are All about you. Each challenge has two parts and you can choose to do one or both parts: You get a bonus entry in the draw if your page is about YOU!

Challenge 1 

D is for Donna and/or distressing. To meet this challenge your page needs to be about something that starts with the letter D AND/OR incorporate Distressing.

For this challenge I've scrapped about the Driving!  I just love a county driving, partly because we are going on holidays, but mostly I just adore getting out of the city.

I've used Kaisercraft Time Machine range, I've distressed the edges of my paper and added a Die Cut heart border with some mini blooms in Honey




Challenge 2 

J is for Jodie and/or use the word JUST in your title.  To meet this challenge your page needs to be about something that starts with J AND/OR incorporate the word JUST in your title.
For example : JUST US, JUST ME, JUST YOU, JUST ONE, JUST THEM.

For this Challenge I have scrapped a picture of my daughter and I with the title JUST US. 
My daughter and I are very close and from the moment she was born, through a divorce, being a single mum and then remarrying, she has always been there. So it's always been JUST US!!!


 The layout was completed using Carta Bella Papers, Rustic Elegance - Wood Floral for the background.
The frame is from Memory Maze
Thickers letters in Cucumber from American Crafts
The other papers used are from the Cocoa Vanilla Totally Rad Collection
Doily is from my stash


 These fragipani's are from an old headband. Perfect for the pic, as it was taken in Bali. 
Flowers from Green Tara

I have left the chipboard frame raw, as I wanted the layout to have a natural look.
I added some lace under the frame for some texture.


The tag is from Kmart in the Scrapbook section.
The heart embellishment is made using the Epifany Tool. 
I have stamped the background with a script stamp using Pinecone Ink
To finish I have flicked Kaisercraft Antique Gold Mist on the background 
with Nuvo Crystal Drops - Duck Egg
Collectables used are from the Blue Bay Kaisercraft Collection

You can find all these wonderful products in the store here

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your creations.
Happy Scrapping!!


Challenge 3

K is for Kookaburra , would love to see animal /bird photo incorporated starting with K like Kookaburra , Kangaroo etc or a family pet with a name starting with K
