August Cyber Crop Class with Debs

Hello and welcome to the last class of this  weekend's cyber crop. 

By now you are probably ready to sit down with your feet up and a cuppa.  

Well, these layouts are perfect for doing just that as they are super simple to put together  and the only skills required are to be handy with the scissors! 

The bold colours and fantastically patterned papers do all the work in creating pages to showcase your photographs. 

Full instructions can be found here.

August Cyber crop - Tricia with Pink Fresh celebrate

 Good morning Campers!!

Welcome to day 2! 

Today I'll be using the gorgeous Celebrate range from Pink Fresh.  Full of beautiful blush tones and oversized florals it is perfect for all the outdoor get togethers we have been having lately.

The papers are full of gorgeous sweeping groups of florals that beg to be fussy cut and that's exactly what I did! I also loved the falling trellis on the 'Everyday' paper and set about making the most of it on the 2nd layout. 

The key to creating the centrepieces is all in the cutting so grab your scissors and click here for the instructions. 

PS. Don't forget to pop back at 12 for Debs class :)

August 2021 - Class with Tracy

 Good evening friends.  I hope you have all had a lovely day.  I'm typing to you from Sunny Wales again, sat in the garden with mum, beer in hand, so you could say I'm in my happy place!

I loved the bright colours in this kit, and so I chose a photograph with a rainbow of colours in the dresses and clothes we wore when Ann, Wendy and I finally met up with the Welsh after almost 2 years!!!  

The travel theme worked well even for just a day out, and the sticker book will last for ages, it'll be especially great if you're planning a little travel journal!

I used the tags as a feature, because why not? I tried to keep the tag page quite simple, I hope you enjoy it.

The second page is a little more fun but both pages are pretty simple so I hope perfect for an early evening play... I hope you have a rip roaring time! 

I really hope you like the class and I am so excited about teaching you all in person at Retreat.  I can't wait to see your versions of the pages, so don't forget to pop them in the albumn.

August 2021 Cybercrop class with Karen

Hello everyone, Dolly here  and I hope you have all had a fabulous summer. I know it has been a different year and many of us will have enjoyed holiays or days out in this country rather than travelling further afield, but I am sure you have all enjoyed something over the summer that will work wonderfully witht hese gorgeous papers. 

The Carte Bella Summer range is just so lush and with the cut aparts and sticker sheet there is so much to enjoy in this packed kit. 

I have two pages for you but there is literally loads left over which will, I am sure, feature on other summer pages. 

This is one of the pages I have for you  and I can't wait to see what you do. 

Please do remember to post your class pages in our facebook group so that we can all see and enjoy them. 

You can find the full instructions here

Have fun.

August 2021 Cyber Crop - Class 1 with Katherine


Hello and welcome to our virtual crop!  If you don't have the kit you can put together your own and join in the classes.  As always we would love to hear from you in the chatter and see your finished pages so make sure you join in on our Facebook page ATDML#Create. In my class you will make 2 pages, but there are plenty of bits and pieces to make more - it uses the lovely Family Fun collection from Simple Stories.  For the first page the focus is on the lovely foam stickers that you get in this kit with a little bit of faux stitching.

The next page is packed with all the rainbow colours in the kit and gets you to dig out your punches to make a feature.

You can find the class here. 

I hope you enjoy the class and look forward to seeing your creations and be back here at 12 noon to see Karen's fabulous class.

Stash Busting with Tricia - Titles and phrases


I love fonts, titles and phrases.  I own a shedload of thickers and love cutting my own diecut titles.  The downside is sometimes I can be left with some leftover phrases and titles.
Now and again I love making these the focus of my page, it's a great way of using up similar phrases and can act as your title(s) and journaling all as one.  

A great way is to focus of attributes or similar meaning and work out area you want to focus on - block, crossword or frame.  A rainbow mix can look great against a neutral backdrop or go monochrome.  Whatever you choose, don't forget to share the final results over on the facebook page.
