Gallery Pick

Check out these two companion pages were shared in our gallery by Mystical Scrapbooks owner Donna. I'm loving this combination of colours- they really give the feel of a warm spring day. The background she had made reflects the patterns and the flow of the water. I also love the minimal way she's added patterned paper to her pages- adding interest but keeping the focus on her lovely pages. It's a great idea too when you have two pages you want to make from the same occasion to carry the colour palette and some supplies across both pages. It's always good to see your pages Donna!

Gallery Pick

This very cool pocket page was shared in our gallery by Jazikt. I love the colour pallet she has used with muted blues and some greys. Choosing to make her main photo black and white really adds to the mood- giving the photo some age, that it doesn't have! Simple embellishing is absolutely all that's needed and is part of what makes a pocket page so fun and fast to put together. Thanks for sharing this pages with us Jazikt!

December 'Ad Nauseum' Cyber Crop

Welcome to our last CC for 2016!

This month we are looking at the advertising that we see everyday and drawing some scrapping inspiration from it.

If you look, you can inspiration anywhere 😊

Challenge 1

For my challenge I've chosen an ad for my favourite perfume, Modern Muse.

I can't wait to see what inspiration you can pull from this ad 😍

For my page, I've used soft pinks and grays, feathers and ribbon.  I will be uploading my challenge page over the weekend :)

Challenge 2

I will quite often spot inspiration when I am out and about and like to grab a quick photo with my phone if I see something I want to remember for later. This advert for instant scratchys caught my eye because I love the way they've treated the text... the colours, overlap and informal layout is lovely and playful. It would work well on a kids page and also on a page about a family member's favourite saying- making the saying the central feature. Even if you don't have time to scrap a page inspired by this image this weekend I'd love to hear the inspiration you get from this one in the chat on facebook.

Here's my page about my son's speech issues...

Challenge 3

The last inspiration piece is a window dressing in a make-up store.... I really liked the partial circle splash and the two additional circle elements... there's also a nice muted colour palette which would work for a formal occasion or winter page. But I imagine a page with a large photo and a bold title when I see this... what does it have you thinking of? Looking forward to seeing everyone's pages in the gallery.

Here's my page...
