January Cyber Crop

Welcome to our first CC for the 2019!

I'm looking forward to sharing another year of fun challenges with you all!

First up...

Tick Tac Toe Challenge


And here's my take :)  I've used the first row,  top to bottom.  

I've used the lovely paper range Le Petit Jardin as my base.
Kaisermists
Chipboard - Embossed

Mixed flowers and bobs from my stash - Green Tara , Cocoa Vanilla

Sketch Challenge

Here's my take on the sketch...


I've used supplies from The Cocoa Vanilla Endless Summer range and WRMK Washi and Nuvo drops.

I've  picked up on the pinks, yellows, and greens of the board. As well as  some fruit and a bird of my own. I've used some of my scraps as well as papers and stickers from the Simple Stories Hello Summer Range and some Kaiser Mist for my back ground and Nuvo drops.

December Monthly Challenges



Season's greetings, Merry December and happy holidays! Hopefully you're still relaxed and haven't been swamped by the idea that it's the most busy time of the year! We have two challenges for you for December I hope you can make time for yourself to relax and have a play!

From Donna and I we wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and all the best things for the coming year and look forward to seeing what you create in 2019!

Chalenge 1: Colour Swatch


Using a base of either black or white use all four of the colours from the swatch- as little or as much as you want.


Here's my page I've used three of my favourite products from the store; Ranger Distress inks: Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed, Mermaid Lagoon and Pickled Raspberry, Kaisermist: Aqua, Pink, Lime and Yellow and Nuvo Gloss drops: Dandelion, Apple Bubble Gum and Caribbean Ocean. My 'Happy' title and word and heart stickers are from the new Cocoa Vanilla Midnight range. The little banner flags are Jillibean soup

Challenge 2: Big, Small or Both. 

The photo on my page below was printed at an 8x12 and I trimmed it down to 12 x 5 3/4inches. The smaller photos are two 2x2's and a 2x3- there's just enough information to tell the story.  So my challenge to you is to use one big photo, or a series of small photos, or a combination of both for your layout.


I've created my page with papers from Couture Creations Le Petit Jardin and title and embellishments from Cocoa Vanilla Midnight.  With just a splash of Kaisermist

November Cyber Crop


This month we're giving you the opportunity to get some of your Christmas cards made during the Cybercrop. It's all about mail: cards, letters, postmarks, envelopes, stamps, postcards and pretty packages tied up in string.... these are a few of my favourite things! :-) 

Of course all our challenges are suitable for layouts as well, you don't have to do just cards.

This is our last Cyber Crop for the year, so I hope you can all join in and make it our best one!

Challenge 1 - Sketch 

I have a sketch for you, I've designed this with either a card or a layout in mind.  If you're using this sketch for cards, please make a set of 3.... and if your doing a layout, you can add 2 embellishment clusters, and adjust the balance and measurements to suit your page size... as long as the over all sketch can be seen in your work.


Here's my examples.  I've used the lovely Kaisercraft Christmas Edition range for both my card and my layout.
I love this range as it doesn't compete with my photos.  I've done both, cards and a layout... which I've turned into a double.  See my blog for more details.



And I've decorated the envelops with some left over PP.


Challenge 2 - Use an envelope, stamp and a tag.

Again this challenge can be used for either card or layouts.
If you are making cards (set of 3 please) , I would love to see a decorated envelope to match your card.
If you are doing a layout, please add a envelope, a stamp and tag to your page.

Here's my page, another Christmas page from last year, my stamp is a real postage stamp, I've made a little envelope to pop some journalling in.

Again I've used the Kaisercraft Christmas Edition range found in store here - Christmas Edition  with Bazzill Bling cardstock - Blank Check, which I think goes so lovely with Christmas photos, it's soft golden shimmer is perfect!
Green Tara Poinsettias and Dusty Attic chipboard title.





Challenge 3: Inspiration Board


Pick and choose parts and ideas from the inspiration board above to inspire your layout. 
Need some ideas: Tags, Postage Stamps, Pink, Kraft, Twine, Flowers, Blue, Letter writing, Australiana, Postcard, Birds, Red, Leaves, Envelopes, Layers, Handwriting, Collage, Maps, Typing, Book Pages.

Here's my page...


I was inspired by the blues, flowers, the twine and the word beautiful. I'm working this month with the Couture Creations Range Le Petit Jardin and Cocoa Vanilla Midnight

Due date Sunday, 2nd December - Midnight
