June's Winter Cyber Crop

Welcome to our June Cyber Crop, this time we are taking our inspiration from winter... it's getting chilly here, but we are lucky to still be enjoying some lovely sunny days her in Perth..... so far anyway!

Please join us over at our Facebook chat page. we love to welcome new friends!  It's  private page, so just message me and I can add you.

Challenge 1 - Mood Board





Challenge 2 - Layer - Layer - Layer! 

Just like we do in winter!  Show me a page with lots of layers :) 

Here's is my take. I have layered papers, embellishments, the stars, and I have kinda layered media! My back ground is watercolour pencils (so much fun), then I've inked with a couple of stencils and topped it off with some splatters with a Kaiser-mist.




Challenge 3 - Use Winter Colours or use the word Winter on your page.

And here's Gypsy take...

I'm loving the most recent Cocoa Vanilla line- You Rock! in  the store and the blues and greys in this line are perfect not just for boys but also capture that wintery feeling. Seeing as this gorgeous dude turns six on Saturday I thought he better be the star of my page. Your challenge it to use blues, greys, or any other cooler tones to make your page or use the word 'Winter' as whole or part of your title. 

You have a week plus to upload your creations into the gallery - Here

Due date Sunday, 2nd July - Midnight

**All layouts entered must be created for this CC.

We will be giving away 1 shopping voucher valued at $20.00, and each entry receives 1 ticket into the draw.....each challenge you do gives you a chance to win!

We will also have a surprise prize!!  Our DT members will chose their favourite over-all layout and I will send that lucky person a surprise in the mail.


Have fun and invite your scrappy friends to join us!

June challenges

HI there, and welcome to our June challenges.  

Challenge 1 - Sketch Challenge
by Gypsy

This months sketch is super flexible with options for as many as six smaller portrait style photos on the page. You can flip it around if you have landscape photos to scrapbook. I'd encourage you to use some Project Life style cards and word art on this page- especially for your title. Here's my page...


I decided to go with three photos which I trimmed down to 8x11cm- ideally I would have liked them a bit smaller so I could have more space and more bits and pieces of patterned paper. This page is great for using up scraps! I've used the newest Cocoa Vanilla Range in the store- You Rock!


Challenge 2 -  Technique Challenge
by Donna

Hello, the technique I would like to see you use is Stitching.  It can be by hand or machine, little or lots, it's up to you.

Here is my take.


I've machine stitched a border and hand stitched the heart. I've used a mix lot of goodies from Mystical.
 Jillibean Soup Papers - Green Tara Flowers - Cocoa Vanilla Wood Veneer - WOW Chipboard word - Zing Embossing Powder - Kaisercraft Card and rhinestones


I hope you have fun with these challenges!

Gallery Pick


Love this page Kristy (kikyee) in the Mystical gallery. I think she's done a great job with the patterned papers she's chosen to go with her photos. The stamping and misting are a lovely subtle way to break up that solid background paper. Love the journalling strips and fun title. Plus a really good idea to keep the embellishments to a minimum with so many photos on the page. This layout was for week 6 in our competition. Thanks so much for joining in Kristy and sharing your talent with us.

DT Quick Share Share: 14



Another quick share from me today- a double page LO with the rich and colourful Cocoa Vanilla ~ Wild at Heart. I've used the Vellum, frames and the enamel dots on this page. My title is the Kal Barteski Thickers.


Happy Scrapping!

Gallery Pick


I really could choose just one of these amazing layouts from Tracy A in our gallery. This stunner above was made for our March Cyber Crop Challenges. And the page below was from week 6 of out competition. Both pages feature excellent design sense, great embellishing and colour schemes and best of all they showcase Tracy's awesome mixed media skills. Thank-you Tracy for sharing these in our gallery and playing along with our challenges!
