--- Mystical Scrapbooks DT --- August Cyber Crop Challenge - Sketch + textiles

Hi Crafters

Today I'm sharing a new layout created for 
Mystical Scrapbooks

For August we are focusing on textiles.
The online cybercrop starts today and my challenge is to use the sketch + textiles.

Here is my inspiration "Special Memories"

Here is the sketch I designed ...



The corrugated cardboard is from the packing boxes that scrapbook goodies arrive in.
Spray the top layer with some water and then it will soften up enough that you can peel it back and reveal the corrugation.

Other products from the Mystical Store are:


My textile element is the twine.

Have Fun and happy scrapping.

Hi Craft Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for


This layout features:


It took a little while for me to finish this layout because I couldn't decide what I needed in the background.

I put it aside for a couple of days and while cutting some other cut files I decided the star was the perfection addition.

--- Mystical Scrapbooks DT --- July Cybercrop challenge 'Grab 5'

Hello Crafty Friends

Today I'm sharing my Cybercrop challenge for Mystical Scrapbooks inspired by the fabulous "Inkie Quill"



I've used the Kaisercraft Christmas Edition Paper pad and created a non-Christmas layout.
I started with a glitter cardstock background and mixed texture paste with distress ink then added the paste through the script stencil.

A washi tape border and some embellishing with Rhinestones and Flowers.


Here is the video link to watch me create this layout: https://youtu.be/3WvlMHTdEx8



 I hope you'll find some time to "Grab 5" and get creative.

Scrap the Boys July Challenge - "Hello Blue" scrapbook Layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout created for the July challenge over at


This months inspiration was a fabulous moodboard.


I started with some pink project life cards and once I'd built some layers I added some blue distress ink to the background.

I found the cute "Hello" title from my stash and used the title "Hello Blue" because Master Cooper is mad about Jurassic World, Veloceraptor "Blue" - hence the puzzle in the photos.

Just a couple of embellishments to finish this fabulous colour scheme.

Love it.

Thanks for visiting.

--- Mystical Scrapbooks DT --- July Challenge Reveal "Christmas in July" theme

Hello Crafty Friends

Welcome to July 1st.

My first share this month is some happy news ...

I've joined the team at 


I'm excited to be getting involved with this group online and if you haven't joined yet, you can find them here: Mystical Scrapbooks Chat

For the month of July we are inspiring you to play along with the "Christmas in July" theme.

Don't panic though if you have nothing that fits the theme ...
Below I'm going to share some inspiration of how you could play along this month.


Here's an inspiration board.
From this board you could be inspired by:

- Red, green, gold or silver
- Words: Presents, Fun, Family, Peace
- Groups of 4
- A grid type layout
- paint background



I've used the grid style and chosen Gold as my main colour.


I've used the Kaisercraft Christmas Edition 6x6 paper pad, teamed with some Gold foil and a little bit of red bling.

One of my favourite techniques at the moment is stitching and I love to leave the cotton threads hanging, I love the texture it adds.

Here are some close ups ...





Have Fun & Enjoy.

--- White with ... 1 --- June Scrapbook layout "Love"

Hi Crafters

Today I'm sharing a scrapbook layout created for the challenge over at

My layout "Love"


This month the team challenged us to create white on white with the colour
"Whisper"


So I started with white cardstock - easy!

Then I pulled out a doily for texture and then raided my embellishment box - which are all sorted by colour. So I grabbed some white hearts, the love word and the feather.

Next I had to find the photo ... I couldn't go past this one from our wedding - 10 years ago!!!!!

I used a Kinder Kreations Spring Bouquet Stencil stencil with the Crafters Workshop "Shimmery Goodness" paste to create more interest and texture.

I'm so pleased with how this layout turned out and it took less than an hour!

Thanks for visiting.

Happy Scrapping.
