Welcome 2018!

Welcome to our first set of challenges for the new year!  

Challenge 1

Karen's Layer Challenge.   Use pattern paper for your base and then use another 3 layers of pattern paper, and use 3 photos.

Supplies used Fancy Pants - Family & Co and Happy Place

Stickers     Happy shape puff , Happy Place Dicton and thickners glitter for title 

Paper         Happy Place - Good Day , Family & Co - Our house,  Here with you 

Image may contain: closeup
layered my paper and used the paper saving technique to get the most from one piece of paper as it was double sided

No automatic alt text available.

I tore the 3rd layer so it gave a distress look,  also separates the pattern papers a little and gives some texture to your page.

Challenge 2

Here is my page.
5 elements : Inking, Mixed Media, Embellishments, Word Title and Patterned papers for my photo mat.

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!

mystical scrapbooks

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 

Die cut stars from Basic Grey

Jodie's Challenge - Circle

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.

Cocoa Vanilla Bohemian Dream Layout

Hey all, Gypsy here- just popping back in to share this LO I  made with the new Cocoa Vanilla Line Bohemian Dream... I've used the ♥ Gypsy Heart ♥ Paper on this LO... it's just perfect! :-) I think this line is just perfect for your baby, girl, and love pages... and there's enough in there to do some Ladies, boys and garden type layouts as well.
