September Cybercrop

Do you remember finding a box of photos at your grandparents or parents home, only to wonder who everyone is or when it the photo was taken?

I do, and I remember asking my Mum about the photos, only to get answers like...
" I think that is uncle ------ "

This month we are thinking about Journalling.  For a lot of us, journalling seems to be one of the most difficult parts of scrapbooking, We spend ages thinking of designs and colour combinations and how to use our many wonderful embellishments, but journalling is one of the most important details often forgotten or crammed in at the end.

We have 3 challenges for you using different types of journalling techniques, let's get back into the habit of adding some extra details on our pages :) 

Challenge 1 - Sketch with Journal Tags


For my page I've used Basic Grey Serenade papers, flowers from Green Tara, and my title is from our new range of chipboard from 2Crafty


I've left my journalling tags blank for the bride to write her own journalling.


Challenge 2: Journalling first
For this challenge I want you to write the journalling first- so you can make it a feature of your page rather than an add-on that you slip in there. This is a great chance to tell a longer story (though you don't have to make it as big as mine).

Supplies used: Simple Stories: Heart and Life in Colour, Thickers Foam and Chipboard.

Challenge 3: Document a person
Make a page about a person, rather than an event or location. 
This page describes my niece at 2 years old. I talks about what she currently loves, where she spends her days, there are some word to describe her character, and some important facts like that she still has an afternoon nap and enjoys helping with the cooking.



Supplies used: Fancy Pants Happy Place, Simple Stories Life in Colour, Amy Tangerine Foam Thickers, Basic Grey Alpha, Ribbon, Jillibean Word stickers.

Due date Sunday, 30th Sept.  Upload in to the correct photo album by midnight to the in the draw.

You can find our Facebook gallery and our chat page here - Chat

We have a private chat page over on Facebook, if you new to our challenges just send me a email with your name and I can send you an invite to our little group.

We will be giving away 1 shopping voucher valued at $20.00, and each entry receives 1 ticket into the draw.....each challenge you do gives you a chance to win!

We will also have a surprise prize!!  Our DT members will chose their favourite over-all layout and I will send that lucky person a surprise in the mail.
Happy Scrapping.

September Monthly Challenges

Welcome to our Monthly Challenges for September!

The trial of Facebook albums for the challenges has gone really well and it's been great to see so many pages shared in the chat group. (Please remember to pop your pages into the correct album so you can be included into the prize draw.)

Gypsy's Challenge:
This month our Cybercrop theme will be all about Journalling- I've already been thinking about my challenges for the crop and have a journalling challenge for my monthly challenge.
Your challenge is to either: make your journalling hidden- mine is slipped under the black and white paper on the left.
Or: use the same sentence starter for your journalling... I've used 'I love..." for my LO below, but you can use any starter that you want.
(You can do both if you want. :-) )

This page is made with a combination of the Fancy Pants - Happy Place and Simple Stories- Life in Colour lines.

Donna's Challenge:
For my challenge, I would like you to use some journaling strips to tell a little story behind the photo.  For my page I've used the computer to write out the journalling, then cut it into strips.


I've used Echo Parks For the Record papers, with Kaisercraft Script Words  and Mists.  Embellishments from Cocoa Vanilla, Fancy Pants.

August Kit Layout Shares




I've really enjoyed working with the Kaisercraft Memory Lane Line this month.  This line teams up really well with the Cork Thickers, Crate Paper Fourteen and the Kaisercraft Open Road Line as well. If you're looking to team it up with the Nuvo Drops then the Neptune Turquoise  and Copper Penny are a great match.




Cocoa Vanilla Boys Rule Clear Stickers.


  

  
Happy Scrapping. :-)

August Cybercrop - Hello Little One


This month one of our Mystical team became an aunty for the first time! Congratulations Donna! :-) So we're celebrating new life, new starts and all things baby (fur babies included) with our Cybercrop this month.

Challenge One: Mood Board

Take your inspiration from this baby inspired mood board.


And here my take.  The colours inspired me and hearts. I've used Fancy Pants Memories Captured range on white card, with bits from Green Tara, Cocoa Vanilla, Kaisercraft.... just to name a few!



Challenge Two: Scraplift
This challenge asks you to pull inspiration from this page to use in your own LO. Here's some ideas to get you started: Pink & Mint Colour Scheme, Single small photo, Single centred column design, gatherings of flowers, hand written journalling, a layout about a Visit, a layout about a baby or a good friend... as many or a few of these or others that you want... You could scraplift the whole page or just a small part of it.


I've teamed Crate Paper Fourteen - Crush with the Kaisercraft Memory Lane collectibles and the Cocoa Vanilla Bohemian Dream Vellum Accents. I've finished it off with some Foam Thickers: Alyx Pink.

Challenge Three - Tic Tac Toe




On my page: A whole bunch of Cocoa Vanilla; Endless Summer and Wild at Heart. And some Kaiser Mist.

We welcome all!! No matter what style, or level of experience you have.

Gypsy's Sketch Challenge:


Here's my take:

I've been mixing up some old and new supplies this month. This page has some of the new Kaisercraft line: Memory Lane, Fancy Pants Family & Co. and Cocoa Vanilla Endless summer among others. My title is from this great sticker set and the Washi Tape is mostly We R Memory Keepers. I'm loving the Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart Rubber Charms!


Donna's Challenge:

Hello everyone.. My challenge is a 1-2-3 requirement one.

You must include;

1 type of bling
2 die cuts
3 pieces of patterned paper only.

You may add whatever else you like as well.

Here's my take:



This a great way to use up lots of left over bits of patterned paper, I've used a Kaiser Christmas sheet, and 2 different left overs bits of Cocoa Vanilla papers.

My 2 die cuts are small die cut stickers from Cocoa Vanilla ranges, and my bling is the pearl flourish.

Flowers are Green Tara 1cm Roses and Cocoa Vanilla Love Always - Bitty Blooms
