Jazikt shared both of these LO's in the mystical Gallery in August. The one above was for our Pink and Blue Cyber Crop and the second one was for Scraplift Challenge where members were challenged to scraplift a layout of their own. I really love both of these layout in their own right. But what I think is super cool is that they show just how well scraplifting works for taking an idea or design that has worked and reusing it to create another LO- which works just as well and looks quite different. In both layouts Jazikt has got the same solid design base but has mixed up her embellishments and element placement for a fresh look. I love: the colours she has put together on both LO's, the titles quite different but both cool, the frames, and the embellishments- similar shapes but with very different effects. Thanks so much for sharing both these pages Jazikt.

Hello! Welcome to the second challenge for October. This month I'm challenging you to use four photos (or more) on a single page. You don't have to use 4x6 photos as I have, any size is fine. But you do have to have at least four photo on a single 12 x 12.
My page above is about the finger prints that used be on my mirror all the time... we don't get that any more... sigh. :-) I've mixed together the Cocoa Vanilla lives for this page... they all seem to work really well with each other.
Supplies used: Cocoa Vanilla Totally Rad Stellar, Love Always Bouquet and Lovely things. Embellishments Cocoa Vanilla Free Spirit Puffy Stickers, Accessory Stickers.

I really enjoy working with square photos on a square LO! I also will quite often put everything in the middle of the page and work out from there! Today I have gone with a Patterned paper base from the Simple Stories Heart Line and matted all the rest on a square of white Bazzill cardstock which I've inked the edges of to co-ordinate with the yellow flowers in the patterned paper.
Supplies used: Cardstock Bazzil: White, Patterned Papers: Simple Stories Heart: Treasured Memories, Forever in my Heart, Elements 2, Extras: Simple Stories Heart Cardstock Stickers,

DebiJ shared this beautiful trio of cards she made in the Mystical Gallery. September's Cybercrop was all about Flowers and Debi's cards were inspired by the Mood Board Challenge. There's so much to see here! I love the colour ways Deb has chosen for her cards... beautiful pinks and wines, with hints of yellow, apricot, purple and cream, just lovely. The diecut pieces have been used to great effect and Debi's flower arranging is just perfect. Thanks for this sharing this delightful inspiration Debi.

A stack of photos in a vertical column is a super quick and easy way to get a page done! I like to add my details and embellishments in three spots with one generally much bigger than the other two. Today I have handcut three big banners, that central one would have been a good home for a smaller title. I'm working with the Simple Stories Heart line with is design for memorial type pages but is also very versatile and super lovely.
