Gallery Pick

 Some more pages from our January Cyber Crop this time from Sharnook. 
This top page is  a scraplift from Member Toni M. I love the excitement and movement conveyed by the page... and it would be pretty exciting meeting some super heroes! There's lots of colours in the photos so it was a great choice to only have hints of colour on the page and the little touches of patterned paper are doing a perfect job. The stars are a great extra touch too- always cool to have some stars when you're meeting the stars of the show!

This page is Sharnooks take on the sketch challenge from January- I'm loving the pretty pastel colour scheme she has pulled together- works perfectly with the girly photo and ties in with their clothes as well. I love that she has made the sketch design feel more relaxed and informal and fun! Bonus points for the fussy cutting too!! Beautiful page Sharnook- thanks for sharing!!

What I didn't notice at first is that both these pages use almost the same design... a central block with a diagonal flow from top right to bottom left... and yes they look very different- this is a fantastic example of making use of great design to make awesome pages- it's something that makes life so much easier too... especially when we're tired and scrapping to relax!

March Monochrome Plus CC

Hello everyone and welcome to our March "Monochrome Plus" Cyber Crop!

We have 3 challenges for you, each based on a single colour, and with an additional requirement.

A monochrome layout is based on a single colour, you can use any shade of that colour with a small amount of a neutral colour if needed, (neutral being white, black or kraft.) 

Challenge 1 - Pink plus a Sketch

Here's Gypsy's take on this...

I'm loving the new Cocoa Vanilla Line Wild at Heart in the store- so really enjoyed putting this page together. I've combined it with some bits and pieces from the Love Always line as well.

Challenge 2 - Blue plus Mixed Media

This is my take on this, I have used up lots of scraps of blue and my matte transparent texture paste.... which doesn't show up that great in photo's 😡 ...  but in real life it looks great!! ❤

They look like different colours... above was taken outside, below was taken at my scrap desk, and I've edited it a little to show off the texture paste a bit more 

Challenge 3  - YOUR choice of colour plus Chipboard

I have always wanted to try an all while layout!!  I've not put a title on this page yet, as I'm still trying to decide on one... I think I might find a quote to use :) 

I've embossed and die cut to add texture to the page...

We hope you have fun with these chalenges, you have a full week plus, to scrap these challenges, upload them to our gallery  and be in the winning for a store voucher or a pack of lovely goodies for being the DT pick.

Due date Sunday 26th March - Midnight

And don't forget to stop by our Facebook chat group over the weekend and say Hello to everyone and join in with our Bingo game.  If you are new please just send me a message and I will add you.

How delightful is this LO by Tracy A in week two of our competition?! 
I'm loving the bright colours and the combination of papers and mixed media- they work so well with this super cute photo! I also love that she has kept the rest of the page really clean to balance out all the action in the centre! Thanks for playing along Tracy!

Have you had a go at the competition challenges? There's still time to get in there and complete the pages we'd love you to join in!

DT Share: My Kind of day: Today

I love making double pages LO's to get a whole bunch of photos to help tell the stories of our adventures- you've probably seen enough of my pages by now to know I love Linear design and straight lines... this page is no exception. I have used a combination of 6x4 and 3x4 photos on my page.

DT Share: Be-You-tiful

 This baby girl, my sweet little cousin is 18 months old now and I miss her like crazy- so it was very nice to scrap these photos. The boys loved her to bits as well and absolutely doted on her!

I've really mixed up my supplies on these pages and pulled together a bit of everything- it's fun sometimes to do that... finish off a few last bits and pieces from a sheet or packet and it makes for some economical and interesting pages!

Supplies Used: Bazzill Basics French Vanilla, Jillibean Soup Chit Chat Chowder: Bite sized Bits and Grandma's Lima Bean: Dry Lima Beans and Small Onion and the Soup Labels. Washi Tape: Hambly. Stickers and Embellishments: Simple Stories Life In Colour, Cocoa Vanilla Love Always Puffys, Fancy Pants Happy Place Puffys and What a wonderful day Buttons.
