Make sure you load up your layout into the correct gallery by midnight 7th June
So, here goes my 1st Cyber Crop and I get to set the 1st Challenge, so here goes. . .
On a layout you need to include the following 3 elements;
- Blading or Hand Cutting
- Hidden Journalling
- A Mother and Child in the Photograph
Here is my sample!
For my Layout I have used 2 identical pieces of Creative Imaginations (CI) patterned paper; one for the background, and then I bladed and hand cut out the flourishes and Magic Mounted the cut flourishes. I then cut a co-ordinating CI Journalling block, “I love you” which can be seen at the top left hand corner of the layout, which slides out.
Make sure your LO is uploaded into the Scraploot Gallery in the correct gallery by midnight NSW time Sunday 7th June.
Good luck and have fun and I can’t wait to see your Layouts.
Stay tuned for some prizes and more challenges....
All of the challenges are due in by Midnight Sunday 7th of June. I am looking forward to checking out the Gallery this coming week as I am sure it will be filled with your gorgeous works!!
Oh and remember the theme tonight is Mothers, now if you aren't a Mum yet then no problem, I'm sure you know a Mum, or a Mum to be, even have a pet that is a Mum, or your thoughts on Motherhood.

Step 2 Place them on your lay out lining them up adjacent to each other. I use a ruler to keep them in a straight line.
Step 3 trim off any excess card stock.

I keep all of my scraps sorted out by manufacturer in a concertina file as pictured here, I like to scrap by manufacturer and this makes it easier instead of sorting through everything I can just open it up and pull out everything in the one file,
So for this layout I have used up some Cosmo Cricket, Scraploot has a wide range available in the shop ;) on this Layout I have used 4 of the Cosmo lines from memory, they just seemed to co-ordinate so well, and for those of you who don't know me, I am inlove with anything Cosmo Cricket!! =)
OK what you need to d is pull out all of the scraps you plan on using for your layout and get started. What you will find is that you will have a mix of both larger and smaller pieces in your scrap piles, for this design on my layout I didn't have to trim much up, I utilised the scraps and sizes that I had. This is a very simple design that can be change around with to suit any themed page.
I have also used the papers to create a simple embellishment for my layout, and went through my stash of letters for the title
and here is the finished product.
Other ways to use up your stash is to cut out design elements such as flowers, leaves, stars ........ and use those to embellish your layout. Here is another sample of a layout I made using scraps only, here I cut the flower designs out from some more Cosmo Cricket paper and placed them around a circle, Pearls also make fantastic flowers centres
Also drag out your punches and punch out all different shapes and different sizes and used those on your layouts or cards, Scraps are also the perfect size for your cuttlebugs too, layer up your diecuts like butterflies and you will have a unique and interesting embellishment on your layout.
I hope those tips will help you to use up your scraps.
Now don't forget to enter the current competition, all of the information is in the below post, you have a week to get your Layouts up in the gallery to go in the draw for a $25 voucher to spend in the shop, wouldn't that be nice.....
Stay tuned also because this month we will have the return of another cyber crop!! I am cant wait, it will be so much fun, and I will remember to keep the drink well away from the computer!
Till next time thanks for popping by,
