Challenge 3 - Jodie's Challenge


Welcome to another CC Challenge

For my challenge this month I was inspired by an old layout that I had done some years ago.
So I would love for you to scraplift one of your old layouts (not from the gallery)  and change it but still representing Years Gone By.




Years Gone By


These beautiful photo's were found recently while I have been caring for my mother in law.
They are her wedding pics that were just lying in a box.
So I have taken them home and I am going to make copies of all the photo's that are just in boxes and then put them into an album for safe keeping.



The music paper is from the Kaisercraft Open Road collection which is available in the store.
The flowers were from a market stall find.
The chipboard scrolls are Dusty Attic.
To colour the music paper I used the Vintage Photo Oxide Distress Ink and then sprayed with water.

I hope this inspires you to create some family heirlooms.

Til next time

February Travel inspired Cyber Crop


Welcome to our February CC... inspired by Travel!

Whether it's a week-end trip out of town, or a around the wold tour, most of us love to travel!  We are so lucky here in Western Australia as we have some beautiful spots to visit just a few hours down the road.

My family loves to visit the south-west of WA, what's your favourite holiday place?

Challenge 1  Incorporate 3 tags, string and journalling


I've scrapped some photos from a girls holiday to Melbourne for my birthday a couple of years ago.  My birthday wish was to visit the Melbourne Garden show,  we stayed about a week, and had a wonderful time.
On this day my friend Yvonne and I visited the Fitzroy Gardens... I just loved the conservatory!




I've used Cocoa Vanilla  Love Always  papers  and Vellum Accents, as these photos are so colourful, the soft grey and pink work beautiful with them,  and Kaisercraft Script Words for my title.  Some die cut accents and Green Tara flowers, with some bits from my stash make-up my cluster, and die-cut tags, with our pale pink twine .

Have fun with this challenge, and I look forward to seeing your pages in our gallery
Cheers
Donna

Challenge 2 - Colours of Nature.



Like Donna, I love to visit this beautiful state and would have to say that going down South is always a favourite.

A few years ago my hubby, son and I went on a road trip down South and I rented us a place called "The Yurt" just outside of Walpole. It was one of the best holidays I have been on. The place was on a property surrounded by cows and kangaroos and just trees for miles.
Along the way we stopped at a few places, one of them being a bird park where I took this photo.

So the challenge is a layout/card or OTP project featuring colours inspired by NATURE.

Here is my layout using the gorgeous OPEN ROAD papers from Kaisercraft.
These are available in the store.




I have inked the papers and cardstock with Bark ink from Kaisercraft.
The quote is from a barcode strip.







I look forward to seeing your challenges and please stop by the gallery and leave us some love.

February 2018 Challenges

Hi Everyone, and welcome to our February challenges, our DT has 2 great challenges to help inspire you!

Challenge 1 -  Karen's

Create a double layout  would love to see 4 photos and die cut embellishments.   Your choice in how and what you use to create some dimension on the layout,  for my page I used liquid pearls with a die cut stencil I made with my Cricut Expression machine 
                                      
I used 4 summer photos and the following supplies;                                
Swimmingly Stripe 
Aquatic Fun
Sea Explorers 
Frames and Tags 
                                            
Card Stock  Bazzill - Swiss Dots -Rip Tide 
                                                   

Photos have been matted with Echo Paper Under the Sea Collection 



Seaweed has been done by a Die Cut from my 

Cricut Cartridge then filled in with liquid pearls.
 .
 Die cut seaweed used over the top of my pearl seaweed 
then I added a couple fussy cut fish to the seaweed cluster on 
each page
                              
Sea Explorers Frames and Tags

I loved this range it was beautiful to work with 
and fitted my Summer photos photos perfectly!

Challenge 2 - Sketch Challenge

Hello and Welcome to my challenge for February.

Donna has created this wonderful sketch for you to use and interpret how you like. Flip it, turn it or simply follow the design as you see it but use it as your inspiration. 


Here is my take on the sketch


I have used the gorgeous Echo Park papers from their Under the Sea Collection
which can be found in the Mystical Scrapbooks Store


 To add some texture I have used some stone pebbles.
Anchor charm is from my stash.


 I have handwritten my journalling with a black liner pen.
To create the bubbles, I used a stencil from Dusty Attic and transparent texture paste from Ranger.
While they were still wet, I sprinkled some of the stone pebbles over them.
To finish the page off I outlined the edge of the page with black liner pen and used Dylusional Spray "Squeezed Orange" and the same bubble stencil. 


Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your challenges.

Remember to always
