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.

May Virtual Crop Class 2 with Mel

Welcome to my May virtual crop - I feel like this class is up against a tough competitor as it clashes with the Royal Wedding and build up for the FA cup final so I am guessing there may be a few playing catch up with this later!

For the two layouts I have goe for a contrasting style with one quite traditional scrapping style and one clean and simple which is a style I love but I always find it hard to know when to stop!

Here's the clean and simple layout, the other layout can be found here with the instructions.

Happy scrapping, don't forget to share what you have been up to over on the ATDML # Create Facebook group and be back at 2pm for a minibook treat with Debs!

May Virtual Crop Class 1 with Ann

Morning all and welcome to another Virtual Crop day.
Your first class is travel themed with the lovely Simple Stories You are Here and I have created three layouts from the kit.

I hope you will join in with the virtual crop today, either using the kits which were available to buy or using your own papers - maybe you even have this collection in your stash ready to use!.

Download your free instructions HERE and grab those scissors for a little fussy cutting today! Next up will be your class from Mel at noon followed by Debbie at 2pm.

Have a great scrappy day

May Virtual Crop Challenge

Evening Scrapbookers on the night before our May Virtual Crop which can only mean time for another Mood Board inspiration challenge .What do you see when you look at this? Where do you get inspired and how will it translate to a layout?

Will you be inspired by the top left box containing the lacy overlay of a print not too dissimilar to damask, or the next image along of a garden - will this inspire you to scrap a photo or your garden or the Chelsea Flower show or another horticultural event? There are frames in the right middle image as well as bricks, a repeating pattern in the centre and stripes in the bottom right; all of these could inspire a page.  Alternatively you could be inspired by the green colours with the hint of teal and grey. 

For the mood board challenge, simply look at the board and let it inspire your layout, then share with us in our Facebook Mood board gallery

Tomorrow we will be back as always on the third Saturday of the month with classes at 10am, noon and 2pm, and of course some virtual crop chatter. See you then.
