D-lish Cyber Crop

Last weekend was this months Cyber Crop over at D-lish Scraps and I was lucky enough to set one of the challenges for the weekend.

And a full scale copy of the sample:

I just love the look of an oversized photo on a page, it really makes a spectacular page!

That is all to share for today, although I must say that I feel like I have been scrapping up a storm lately, but I just can't share most of it yet! But I can say I have some cool news to share soon that I can't wait to share with you!

Thanks for stopping by, until next time.

Second Post for Imaginarium Designs

So, half way through November already. Just crazy really! It is always like this at this time of the year so I shouldn't be surprised but it always is exhausting.

Thought I would just pop in and share my next post that is up over at Imaginarium Designs, you can see the whole post here. Also they are having a Design Team call if you love working with all kinds of cool chipboard. It closes on 30th November and details are on their blog.

I think this is one of my favourite pages that I have created so far.

I added little seed beads to the chipboard to give the feeling of the foam and bubbles on the waves, love how it turned out!

And I had a ball creating the title with the drawing and cutting features on my Silhouette. So much fun!

Thanks for stopping by,

White with Freesia

This month at White With 1 the colour is Freesia, a gorgeous happy yellow!

Here is the sample page that I created:

Can you spy the gorgeous flairs that we were given by Funky Flair Studio?! I love flair and these coordinated beautifully with the Freesia.

And make sure you go and check out Molossi who we have partnered with this month.

Fun with Embossing

Over at the Scrap Suite Facebook group (run by D-lish Scraps) we have just finished up our October Cyber crop. One of the challenges was to include embossing wet or dry on your page, this was set by the lovely Cindy and her page was amazing!

Now, I always like a good challenge, and I have been seeing some embossing techniques that I have been wanting to give a go. So I thought no time like the present!

Here is the page that I came up with:

What I have done is a faux letter-press technique whereby I inked with a brayer one side of my embossing folder and then ran it through the machine. In this case I used one of the Tim Holtz card embossing folders and I used the Red Royal Hero Arts ink. Looks great doesn't it?! I also ran some plain vellum through to make the second card. 

The other embossing, which is a little harder to see as it is hidden behind stuff (in the close up below it is the bigger dot behind the black with white dotty paper), is metallic embossing powder on vellum with a dots background stamp. I love this look! I used Pewter Metallic Zing from American Crafts. I also love the look of the Copper Zing.

And lastly, I decided to have a play with some of the D-lish coloured tulle, I think this one is silver. I just pinched it in and stapled with the Tim Holtz tiny attacher (love that thing!)  and created a border.

All in all a fun page to create!And I encourage you to go and ask to join the Scrap Suite and join in on the next cyber crop!

Thanks for stopping by.

Cyber Crop over at The Scrap Suite

So, if you haven't checked it out already, I think you really need to go and ask to join The Scrap Suite Facebook Group. It is a closed group and it is a community of D-lish Scraps people who love to create with D-lish goodies! Once a month there is a fab cyber crop with some inspiring challenges to get you our of your comfort zone.

This month the sketch challenge was set by Ros and looked something like this:

Isn't the page adorable! I decided to do something a little differently for my take on the page. Instead of creating  pie chart as drawn, I decided to use a large doily for my circle background and used strips of coloured paper with faux stitching to represent the pieces of the pie. So I ended up with this page:

Lots of D-lish goodies in here. The flowers, the bottle cap, the resin heart, the doilies, the motex tape and the Pink Fresh brad sticker.

So go and check out The Scrap Suite for yourself and join in on all the fun!
