June Virtual Crop Class 3 with Mel

Welcome to the last class of todays Virtual Crop and this time I am working with the beautiful Carta Bella Transatlantic Travel papers. I have used these before to do a retreat class which I enjoyed doing, I love the luxurious heavy weight of these papers and the classic travel designs are just gorgeous.

I have designed two layouts with the kit and the free instructions are available to download as a PDF HERE.



I hope you have enjoyed this months Virtual Crop, don't forget to visit the ATDML # Create Facebook page to share your creations and for more inspiration.

Happy Scrapping!

July virtual crop - class 2 with Tricia


Hi all, hope you enjoyed Katherine's class.  I'll be using Simple stories - 'Summer vibes' to create 2 layouts with a possible 3rd layout using the leftovers.  All the layouts revolve around angels and lines to draw attention to your photos and create a focal point.

Click here for the instructions

Dig out your eyelet setter to create the bubbles and make the most of the fresh summer colours, great for any beach, BBQ or sunglasses selfies.


Layout 2 has rotating mounts with sunshine features to capture your summer photos, don't like the grid work paper? flip the page to the wooden side for an outdoorsy feel that still has the punch of colour!


Finally if you have scraps left, you'll be able to create this clean and simple layout.  If you would prefer a more summery look to your page why not use the floral paper rather than the grid as I've shown below, if you have mixed up your colours on the other pages the remaining scraps will still work well with these.







I hope you enjoy the class, don't forget to pop across to ATDML # Create Facebook group and share what you have been up to. Join us back at 2pm for Mel's class.

June Virtual Crop Class 1 with Katherine


Morning everyone and welcome to June's virtual crop!  For my class I have created three layouts using papers that are perfect for the boys in your life, and you'll have enough spare to make a Father's Day card for tomorrow too!


For the first one I used lots of layering - don't through away the paper strips at the bottom of your papers!


For the next I played with an offset square.


Lastly a little bit of inkiness with some distress inks to add a little more colour to the page.

I hope you enjoy the crop, you can find the instructions here.



Check back at 12 for the next class and do share your layouts in our Facebook group ATDML # Create

June Virtual Crop Challenge


You can't fail to be cheery with this month's mood board, time to get our happy scrappy on! Yes it is the night before the June virtual crop and we are asking you to be inspired by our June Mood board.

Those of you with Silhouette's or other die-cutting machines could have a field day with this one and the font image! Or do you have birthday photos to scrap of cake or balloons? Maybe you have photos from summer ice-creams or a large floral paper you have been waiting to use... I even really like the washi tape feel to the bottom of the board, did you see that before I mentioned it?

We look forward to seeing your creations shared on our gallery.

Journaling Prompts - June

Here we are again for another Journaling Prompt to hopefully give you an idea for your titles and journaling on your pages this month. Don't forget to come over to the ATDML # Create Facebook page and share your pages in the Journaling Prompt Gallery.

This month's prompt is:

Use song lyrics either as the title for your page or as the inspiration for your journaling.

I have included some examples from my albums as always. I remember being particularly inspired by this idea way way back when UKScrappers ran their Scrap Idol contest a long time ago - perhaps 2008? I did have a look back to see if I could link to the gallery but it has disappeared into the mists of time!




This is a soppy one - when Olivia was a very small baby Isabelle was going through a Dumbo watching phase so the song Baby Mine reminds me very much of snuggling on the sofa with a tiny Olivia and a wriggly and not so tiny Isabelle!

Getting Big with You Rock



Hello everyone, this month we got to choose some lines from the store at the retreat....and I went for an older line, but one of my favourites - You Rock by Cocoa Vanilla.  I love the stars and the bright colours, perfect for the boys in your life!

I had cut several stars from Starshine and then used the rest as the top part of my page - I used Galatic as the base and then added a strip from Plus One in too.  I added some of the stars using foam pads and just had the rest tumbling down my page.  O used some of the stickers for embellishments - again adding some of those on foam pads and a mixed stamp/sticker title, plus a few nuevo enamel dots.



I layered up some of my stars on the main paper.


Here you can see a little cluster of embellishments - there are some really nice type-written phrases in the stickers.

May Virtual Crop Class 3 with Debs

Debs is having some blogger issues so I am posting this on her behalf...

Afternoon All, doesn't Meghan look classically beautiful? Nothing like a wedding to put one in the mood for a little romance and nothing like Spring for fresh, pretty photographs. 

These pretty papers from Bo Bunny lend themselves to showcasing Spring photographs of gardens or baby animals or, as in my case, pictures of my girlies. 


This VC I have chosen to use these papers to create a 'Brag Book' to send to the girls' granny who lives abroad. There is so much in this kit you can make as many or as few pages as you like.

Instructions can be found here and please do share what you have been up to over on the ATDML # Create Facebook Page.
