Moodboards are Good Boards

 You got to love a good moodboard! 

In May Anna's Craft Cupboard had this gorgeous moodboard for it 11th Birthday Cybercrop.

A Moodboard is an arrangement of images, materials, pieces of text, etc. intended to evoke or project a particular style or concept. 
You can find that perfect inspiration to create your layout or project. 



Of course the colours where a large inspiration with the layout I created for my DT layout.

The other inspiration I took from the moodboard was that it was all about "party", so to use that "party" theme on my layout I created what looks like to be fireworks on my layout using a cut up toilet roll and paint. 


This technique was inspired by Marta Łapkowska and a video she posted on here YouTube channel. (Here)

I really loved this technique and now I am saving up more old toilet rolls. LOL
So I can create more background with this technique.

Moodboards are a great source of inspiration for a scrapper that may of lost their mojo, or wanting to try a new colour combo they may not of tried before. 
So please don't be afraid of the moodboard...remember they are a good board!

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating.

Have You Ever

 Have you ever played scrapbook Tic Tac Toe??

In May Anna's Craft Cupboard celebrates it 11th birthday, and to help celebrate it we hosted a Cybercrop  over on our Facebook Community.

One of the awesome challenges we had was Tic Tac Toe.

I must say they are a favorite of mine.

You pick a line, either vertical, horizontal or diagonal and create using the product in that line.
I choose the texture paste, fussy cutting and stamping line, and created a  8 x 10 canvas.  


 As soon as I picked my line, I knew this was a great chance to create another canvas and walla I have another piece of art work for my scrap room. 




If you are new to scrapbooking or crafty creating, I would recommend challenges like Tic Tac Toe.

You get the chance to challenge yourself and maybe even work with a products you might not normally create with. 

Keep an eye out, because I know there shall be more fun challenges like this on our community soon.

Thanks for popping by and happy creating.

Stitch In Time... Is A Load Of Fun!

Last month my fellow Design Team member for Anna's Craft Cupboard
The talented Rachael Funnell ran the mini challenge for the

And what a great mini challenge it was.
This challenge was all about stitching...it could be hand stitching, machine stitching or stitching using stamps. 

And today I am sharing my DT layout for this mini challenge. 





I did both hand stitching and machine stitching on my layout.

It was such an inspirational challenge, that with my DT pack I received last month I keep the stitching theme running. 

Thanks Rachael for such a fun challenge and reminding me that yes I own a sewing machine and needles. ;)

I hope you can join our community and join in with our monthly mini challenge which are ran in the middle of each month on our Facebook Community (Link Above)
