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

Jodie's Challenge - Circle


Hello 
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.

Challenge 2 - Jodie's Challenge - Mood Board

I would like to see you use the colour board for your inspiration and as we are celebrating our birthday, your page should reflect a big birthday....for example the Big 'O', First Birthday, 18th or 21st or maybe becoming a teen.

Here is my layout


SURPRISE!!!
On my 40th Birthday I got married. I had made a promise to my hubby that if we were still together by my 40th birthday, that I would marry him.
So we planned a 40th Birthday with a twist. We surprised the guests by getting married.
My wedding had a Bon Jovi theme (no surprises there!!)
So my wedding pages have Bon Jovi Song Titles.



For the background I have used Kaisercraft Paint.
Inked the edges in Charcoal.
The 'Our Wedding' Title is from Francheville.
The papers are from Simple Stories - Life in Colour.

I look forward to seeing your wonderful creations and remember to upload your challenges by midnight 29th October.

Thanks for playing along


Challenge 3 - Donna's Challenge - Use Numbers

As it's been 9 years since I made the decision to buy this little scrap shop, I would like to see you use numbers on your page... and if you use the number 9 anywhere you will win an extra prize!!  Everyone who uses a number 9 in any way, will receive a packet of bling... Only 1 condition, I must be able to see it, so let me know in your gallery post if it's a bit small or hidden :) 

Here's my example :)  



I've use some of the many many left over Thicker numbers that I have, painted them with Gesso and then used Kaisermists to add some colour.



I added some Cocoa Vanilla - Totally Rad,  Accessory Stickers and some glitter Nuvo Drops.

Gallery Pick- KathyLovesToScrap


KathyLovesToScrap is our Gallery pick this week and if you think you've seen the page above before you are almost right!! This page is from challenge one in our May CC and if you haven't seen the pages in the gallery I highly recommend it because they are all so different and all bring their own special touch to the design. Kathy was one of only two who chose to use a patterned paper for her page base and I think her choice and the papers she's matched with it are just perfect together and for the subject of her LO! I love all the little word art embellishments that compliment but not overwhelm the design. I like the pick paint dots which flow through the page and fact she chose to have her title just simple and co-ordinated. It's a great page Kathy- thanks for joining in on the challenge!
