Thanks for stopping by

Further Room with a View Cyber Crop Challenges

Get on over the Scrapbooking Top 50 and check out the following Cyber Crop challenges - cant wait to get to work on them.

Vicki's Lounge Room Challenge - take inspiration from the picture below

Vicki's Main Bedroom Challenge

For our Main Bedroom Challenge, i have picked a nice clean, sleek bedroom for you to use for inspiration! I love the clean lines, circles and the colours. What grabs your attention? What part of this room will inspire your layout? I can't wait to see what you will do with this challenge!

The Main Bedroom:

Ant's Kitchen Challenge

As I am sure you can guess from the title of my topic, I have based my LO on one of the busiest rooms in the house, well at least in my house that is. The kitchen. When I saw this image that was found on Pinterest, I fell In love with it immediately. The colours are some of my very favourites and I love how there are just little splashes here and there making the colours pop. I also love how the room looks relatively simple at first glance, but when you look closer you see lots of little details. 

For this challenge, I would like to see you take inspiration from the kitchen image here. The only other requirement is that I want to see something hanging on your LO.....cause we just can't ignore that chandelier hanging there........can we? 

So there you have them, the challenges for the Scrapbooking Top 50 March Room with a View Cyber Crop.

All entries are due in the relevant gallery by midnight (SA time) on 31st March.

Get scrapping now

Kraft it Up March Challenge

Well, since I am on holidays and doing nothing much, it is the perfect time to scrap :)  The housework can well and truly wait, lol.

I stumbled across the sketch challenge at Kraft it Up and thought I would give it a go

Sorry about the pic, the kraft cardstock buckled with the glimmermist :(

Thanks so much for stopping by

Back with a vengeance

I know its been a while, but I am back now, scrapping with a vengeance, and it helps that I have this week off work on annual leave :)

The fabulous team at Scrapville have recommenced the Scrapburst challenges for 2013 and are the March ones great!!  There are even specific challenges for card makers, and you can win some fabby prizes too.

Your Layout must include the following items as indicated:
1x Stamped Image (pic)
2x Photos
3x PPapers 
4x Flowers
5x Flags or Bunting

#2 Place/Thing photo – not of a person.
Your layout must include a photo of something from Nature, Pets, Towns, an Event or a Thing! You cannot have any people in your photo.

#3 White + 1: Orange.
You may use variations of Orange papers or cardstock, but it must be the dominant colour.
We will allow a 20% variation with the Orange only, which allows a little extra room to move for other colour tones - but that's it.

#4 Spellbinders x 3 Die Shapes. 
Your Layout must have 3 x Spellbinder Die Shapes on the page, and you must name each one used. If using different sets, each one must be named.


#1 Numbers
1X Stamped Image (pic)
2X PPapers
3X Flowers 
You can add a sentiment or bling as desired.
#2 Photo Card
You must use a photo on your Card that has either an Animal/Bird/Nature on it as the main focus.

#3 White + Orange/Yellow
You may use variations of Orange and Yellow, but they must be dominant colours. 
We will allow a 20% variation with the Orange/Yellow only, which allows a little extra room to move for other colour tones - but that's it.

#4 Spellbinders x 3 Die Shapes.
Your Card must have 3 x Spellbinder Die Shapes on it. We will also accept the Die Shapes being used in the inside of the Card. If using different sets, each one must be named.
Good luck everyone, and don't forget, Pumpkin Time 30th April. Let's get cracking!

What do you think??

Here is my efforts at Scrapburst #2

I have used some BG Serenade pp's and alphas, a strip of printed twill, a Kaiser Wooden Award flourish and assorted Bo Bunny brads and button, as well as a strip of thin Washi tape.

The picture, which contains no people, is off the Western Australia Athletics Stadium in Perth where Sam competed recently in his first Australian Junior Athletics Championships.  


Also on the go at the moment is the Scrapbooking Top 50 March "Room with a View" Cyber Crop.

The first Challenge was set by Sarah
How fun are kid's rooms to decorate! I love that any colour conceivable can be used in a kids room.

For this challenge I want you to scrap a layout using some sort of inspiration from this picture. It could be colours, the quotes, the room design or anything else you decide.
I have one little extra criteria for you, you must use some form of layering on your layout.

Here it is:

There are so many options available here that I will have a hard time choosing.  How about you??

You have until Midnight on the 31st March (SA time) to get your entries uploaded.  There will be more challenges released later today so head on over, sign up and get busy.
