Family by Ros Aggett-Madley

Hellooooo, welcome to my cybercrop challenge 💙
This month i present too you, Tiny Photos!!
You can join in at The Scrap Suite.

As soon as i saw this Kinder Kreations Aerobar chipboard, I knew what i had to do.   

My page started with some geli printing.  My "tiny photos" are actually one photo.   I coloured the chipboard piece in with a black marker.  I chose the circles I wanted to use for each person and drew an outline around the shape to cut each one out.   Once i adhered these to the chipboard and the glue had dried, i used a craft knife too trim the photos more closely to the edges of each shape.

I adorned this little strip with some resin flowersenamel dots and a sequin bow.

My page had been finished with a couple of banners from the Everyday Words stamp set.

Looking forward to seeing what you create ♥

'Slice of Citrus' by Malinda Gardner

Hi all, 
Have you seen the latest cybercrop challenges over in the Scrap Suite???

Here's my challenge...can you guess what my challenge is???

My challenge is SLICE OF CITRUS, think lemon, lime and orange.

I love all the citrus colours at the moment, so decided to create a page that show cases these gorgeous colours.

After I did my background, I collected lots of D-lish stuff in yellow and lime green and white of course.

Have you seen the new CREATIVE CUTS at D-lish?
I don't normally like die cuts; I find they can be a bit big for my page. But I love these Linked Squares. They're small enough to fit on my page but big enough to make a statement.
Normally I would spray this kind of embellishment to suit my page but I love the stark white of the die cut so decided to keep it as is. I layered it over some yellow punchinella and then proceeded to place all my little embellishments and flowers.

 How great are these green epoxy stars??? They've got little patterns on them...I love them.

I pulled out a past Just Add Paper kit, the Summer in Tuscany kit and found this gorgeous Summer tag and placed it under my flower and then a flair button on top.

Finally some stamping all around the page. I love doing some stamping after I've finished my page as I really like stamping over some of the embellishments. It creates more dimension and depth.

So would love to see you enter my challenge...please leave a comment here telling me what you think of my page and if you've used any of the D-lish stuff like I have...see you over in The Scrap Suite

Happy scrapping...Mal xxx

Together - Sandra Brimelow

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing with you the layout I have created for the May cybercrop. Go to the The Scrap Suite to see the challenges, and upload your entries.

So the challenge I set is to use the word together and tags. 

This very recent family photo taken at my father's 80th birthday seemed perfect to use for this layout. 
I started with 2 different papers, tearing one in half. I layered some co-ordinating tags behind the photo. A touch of texture paste added a bit more interest to the layout. 

So to embellish, I added a lace doily behind the photo. In my cluster I have used a wild rosecarnationsrosebudscabbage rose, as well as some leaves.

There is plenty of time for you to have a go at the challenge, so I would love to see what you create. 
Until then, happy scrapping.

‘Together’ by Amy

Hi All! I am here to share my take on this month’s Cybercrop Rainbow challenge. You can make either a tag, card, or OTP project. Basically, anything, really, as long as it has a rainbow theme to it. I have previously scrapped this photo, but am doing it again, as I thought it would be a very good match for the rainbow theme.

As you can see, I began the process of using the colours for the rainbow by ink-spraying a sheet of white cardstock completely.


Once dried, using dies from my stash, and using my trusty Cuttlebug, I cut the hearts out. This process did take a while, mind you. However, once adhered down onto a sheet of white paper cardstock, I think it was all worth it!
After this I randomly added some coloured splatters over the page. 

I used strips of tissue paper, hand torn, that were left over from various JAP kits: you know, the ones that Amanda neatly folds into a tidy paper square! Anyway, this is what I used as the backing for my photo of my boys with their cousins.

I raided my D-Lish Scraps stash and have used the following goodies carefully selected to compliment the rainbow theme: a flair, sequins, resin flowers, and a pink bow from the ‘Love Like This’ JAP kit, and a resin polka dot button.

For the title shown here, I heat-embossed the wood veneer words (again, from February’s ‘Love Like This’ JAP kit. To be honest, it is not quite how I thought it would turn out, but that is art for you!

In the little cluster behind the title, from the D-Lish Scraps store, I have used a resin flower and yellow blossom branches from the same kit.
And finally, a shaped wooden button with a star on it: with an enamel D-Lish Dots in orange popped on top.

I’m really looking forward to see your wonderful projects in this month’s CC Challenge!

Please join us on the Scrap Suite and play along!

Thanks, Amy 😊

"Cool" by Jasmine

Wow, time flies hey?
Are the days going quicker or are we just busier?
I think I need to create a page about Balance next.
Something I try and get right but most days, it just doesn't happen.
So this had to be a quicky but hopefully a goody. 
I tried to keep it simple and effective as the photo was my highlight so I didn't add a big long title or lots of journaling.  
It is a photo that makes me smile every time I come across it.

I have mostly used the embellishments from the Mini Kit - Boldly Black.
These kits have been amazing.  So easy to just keep adding when everything is already there and co-ordinated.  I loved the black on white.
 I have also used a star stencil and just used a pen to trace the stars and then colour some in.  
There is a creative cut Star as stars seemed to be the theme.
A paper doily, polka dot bow (from a past JAP kit) and a paper flower.

Hopefully you have that right Balance in your day today. 
I have far :)

"You are loved - always" by Anthea

Hi all.
In honour of Mother's Day yesterday - I am sharing a recent LO of my Mum and I. 
The base of this LO was created a while back when one day I just wanted to play with paint and texture paste and have fun. I loved it but  didn't have any plans for it at all, so I sat it aside for a rainy day.
The other day I decided I wanted to do a LO of my Mum and I and I pulled out this photo of her and I and I thought I would use my premade base with it. I simply backed the photo with a D-lish doily and attached that to my LO.  I then found some flowers that I liked with the LO and worked my cluster around them.  (Note - The flowers HAD to be pink as that is my Mum's favourite colour.)
Whilst I was digging around I found my UNOPENED  *gasp, splutter, cough, cough * "Love Like This" JAP kit. I am not sure how this one got by me unopened but I can tell you I let out a squeal when I found it because the colours in it were perfect for this LO!  That gorgeous black and white bow comes from the kit, as well as the flair button and that gorgeous kiss/hug washi tape. You can get a variety of bows and flair buttons  individually in the shop if you want too - so be sure to check them out.

I then decided to use the tag from the kit that comes pegged to it (seriously - the packaging of these kits is scrapable too) and used it to balance out the LO a bit.
I am pretty happy with how this LO turned out.  So bright and fun and I think it suits my Mum and I to a tea.  I know my Mum will like my LO - the fact that she is totally biased in her opinion of my work does not worry me in the least ;)
I hope all you Mum's had a great day yesterday and for those of you who are not Mum's, I hope you got to spend it with your Mum. 
Til next time.
Take care

Seeing Spots | Amanda Lawrence

Hello all!
I have a very bright and colourful share today. During the January school holidays we were lucky enough to visit the Yayoi Kusama installation at GOMA (Gallery of Modern Art) here in Brisbane. 

These photos were taken in the Obliteration Room. It starts out as an all white room, furniture and all. Each person who visits is given a sheet of coloured dot stickers which you are invited to stick anywhere you like. We went closer to the end of the exhibit and as you can see, there was pretty much no white spaces left!

I found a scrap of spotty paper in my stash which was perfect as a mat for my photo. I then dug through my scraps looking for plain coordinating colours that I could use to back the Bubbles Creative Cuts from the store. They were perfect for my spotty layout!

Once all those were in place, it was time to embellish!

For my main cluster I used one of the Swan Roses in white as my feature. I then added a selection of paper flowers, some resin pieces, a flair from the 'Which Way Words' set and finally a 3D heart cabochon.

My second cluster was a repeat of the same elements, less the larger flower. This time I used a flair from the 'Defining Words' set in white. To anchor everything down I added a frame of handstitching around the photo area and also some random 'x' stitches on the edges of the bubble cut files.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can grab some inspiration from my share today.

Till next time, 
Amanda x
