Christmas in July Cyber Crop

Hello scrappy friends, and welcome to our July Cyber Crop

We have 3 challenges for you, using Christmas as our inspiration.
You do not have to scrap Christmas photos, we are just taking our inspiration from Christmas ☺  However, if like me you haven't finished scrapping last Christmas then feel free to do so!!

Please join us over at our Facebook chat page.  We love to welcome new friends, it's a private page, so just message me and I can add you.


Challenge 1 - All that glitters and sparkles! 

I love the decorations silver and gold, I love the lights all sparkling and bold. This challenges is to bring some Christmas sparkle to your page. Make gold or silver or a metallic sparkle a feature of your page... think bling, crystals, metallic mists, metallic cardstock, glitter or glitter paper... make it shimmer and shine!
Here's my take...

I love the way these Copper Glitter Thickers match Will's hair! This was a favourite photo of my very thoughtful boy so I am glad to get it scrapped. I used Basic Grey Serenade Peacock Paper and Element stickers. I was busting some of my stash so I've used wood veneers and word stickers from Cocoa Vanilla lines: Love always, Endless Summer and You Rock! Finished off my page with some gold mist from my own stash and a Gold pen.



Challenge 2 - Colour Challenge - Red White & Green


This challenge is to use the traditional colours of Christmas... you can make a Christmas page or co with something completely different so long as you page is predominantly Red, White and Green. 



I love the Bazzill Dotted Swiss cardstock for adding texture and interest to my page in a subtle way. I've used the Irish Eyes and Phoenix on this page as well as the regular Bazzill White for my background. Added in a bit of playful spotted patterned paper from Cocoa Vanilla- Love Always - Class Act, My title is from the CV You Rock Cut apart sheet- Random and Glitter Thickers- Sprinkles Cucumber. I have added some playful features in the form of bows from my stash, RicRac, Cocoa Vanilla Enamel Dots and Enamel Shapes. Lastly I added dots of the Nuvo Crystal Drops: White, Red Berry, Apple Green and Black

I'm really enjoying the flexibility of the Nuvo Crystal drops... I know I am not going to run out of the size and colour of the dots I want for my project. Plus I can create other shapes as well. I have done these dots direct to page- but I have also made some premade dots on a non stick sheet which I can glue on my page. I got the primary colours and black and white in the gloss drops to start but will definitely look at adding some more of my most used colours to my collection- they are a much more economical way to go as well.


Challenge 3 - Use ribbon on your page

Such fun going though my ribbon box!  

It's so easy creating when your using everything from a 1 range!  I've used Cocoa Vanilla 'You Rock' papers and embellishments, I honestly don't thing there is anything in the range I don't love!!  I've sprayed and dropped with KaiserMist -White, and I've use two thin bits of ribbon to help to "frame" my photo.

Hope you enjoy this challenges, we will be chatting over on our FB page, with a odd game or two over the weekend ☺
