September Cyber Crop - Flowers for All!

Welcome to our September Cybercrop!

Inspired by the start of spring and in hopes of some lovely weather- this month we're all about flowers!


Challenge one - Mood Board
Take the inspiration for a scrapbook page or card from this month's inspiration board. Look at the shapes, numbers, patterns, colours and ideas in the board and find one or more ideas that you can use as a springboard for your project.



Challenge Two - Sketch  Use this months sketch as the basis for a scrapbook layout. Remember that you can flip it and or change it as much as you like- add on elements or move things round- the sketch is just a starter for your ideas!



Here's my take on the sketch:




Supplies used: Cardstock Core'dinations Sugar n'spice,Cocoa Vanilla Love Always: Papers: Bouquet and Lovely Things, Accessory Stickers, Puffy Stickers, and Diecut Ephemera.


Challenge 3 - Scrap-Lift Inspiration
Scrap-lifting is a great way to try a new technique, rev up your mojo, or just because you love someone's style!

And it's perfectly acceptable as long as you follow the 2 golden rules:

1- All ways give credit to the person your scrap-lifting
2- Never submit Scrap-lifted work for publishing, you can only scrap-lift for personal use

I adore Louise Nelson's style, maybe because it's so different from mine.  I meet her at a private weekend retreat in SA some years ago, and her pages still make me whooo & aahhh !

A page of her popped up in my FB feed the other day and I knew I was going to have to SL it- find it HERE

And here is my take in it :)   Ive used very different colours, but kept the over all design.  And to tie it into out theme, make sure you add a flower!!

I've used KaiserMist Turquoise for my background, and then got to use lots of left over bits!

I got out my Cuttlebug and cut the tags from left over bits from Fancy Pants - Happy Place range, the little banners are from October Afternoon, Cogs from Twiddleybiz and the arrow from Memory Maze the speech bubble is from Cocoa Vanilla Totally Rad  , wood veneer pack, I just turned it and painted the back!

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 2nd October- Midnight

And don't forget to stop by our Facebook chat group over the weekend - there just may be a game or two happening with the odd prize being thrown your way ;)
