Oxides and Graphic 45 - Enjoy the little things

I know...Fairie Dust papers and boys...not necessarily a natural pairing, but the colours and outdoors feel to these papers were really easy to use.  I started the page with some distress oxides and added loads of inky prints in blues, purples, greens and yellows - the oxides work really well on craft and you don't loose the colour into the paper.  After that I then used my kaisercraft hessian stamp and some of the word stamps from Crate Paper.  Next I chose several strips of paper, decorating each one slightly differently.  I arranged them blue, green, purple, green blue which seems to draw your eye into the centre of the page and to the photo.  I do love the colour combination in this line of papers.

I decorated the strips with some of the stickers and fussy cut a few mushrooms to add around the photo.  

The title is from Fab Scraps and you can pick it up in the shop - I used my oxides to create an ombre effect and then added silver nuvo drops around the edge.

I used foam pads and added some of the button stickers on one of the strips.

I hope you've enjoyed the page, and look forward to seeing you all at the Cybercrop at the end of the month - as I type there is still one kit left, but even if you didn't manage to get the kits you can download the instructions and play along with your own papers.

July Virtual Crop Class 3 with Debbie

Debbie brings us her sunshine for class 3 today and two beautiful layouts which you can easily replicate with your own papers if you didn't manage to grab a kit.

As always your free to download instructions to make these pages can be found HERE.
That's it for this month but next month we have a whole weekend of fun planned with our ANNUAL CYBERCROP. Stay tuned for more info coming soon!

July virtual crop class 2 with Tricia

Good afternoon all, I hope you enjoyed Ann's class this morning!

In my class I'll be using the gorgeous Bo Bunny 'Boardwalk' range, full of hot colours and beach themes to create three layouts perfect for the hot weather we have been having.  Your kits have a selection of embellishments that vary so you can create your own unique verson of the layouts however the main structure can be achieved using the papers.

Although the papers have a variety of beach themed strips, water and shells with a little bit of clever planning you can use the cool shades and hot colours for a variety of subjects with a little bit of clever planning.

I hope you enjoy the class - Instructions to make the pages can be found on the ATDML # Create Facebook page (due to a technical hitch on the website) and join us back at 2pm for Debbie's class :)

July Virtual Crop Class 1 with Ann and SS Say Cheese III

Welcome to another Virtual crop day with your ATDML design team and I am first up today with 2 layouts and  bonus project using Simple Stories Say Cheese III collection.  Neither of my main layouts use Disney photos despite this being a Disney themed collection and the style of theme also means you could easily replicate with your own papers.

Instructions to make the pages can be found HERE and we will then be back at noon with another virtual crop class. Enjoy and happy scrapping!
