Scrapbook Savvy April Cybercrop

Today is a very special day to remember all who have served to keep our country safe. Before you pull out your scrapping supplies please take a moment to be thankful.

They shall grow not old,
as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them,
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Lest we forget

Welcome to this month's Cybercrop over at Scrapbook Savvy Facebook Event and Blog.
We also have our announcement of our new design team members that Sarah will share on the blog.

I went with a colour challenge this month after I was scrapping with a gorgeous collection from MME.
Absolutely love the bright colours in the Remarkable Collection.

So here you go, scrap a page using Red, Blue, Green and Yellow. Small amounts of black, white and kraft can be used. Upload your page to the Gallery by Midnight Thursday 2nd May to be eligible for some Savvy dollars.

Scrapbook Savvy April We're Savvy Kit Reveal

Afternoon Scrappers!

I had finished playing with this kit a few days ago but since that time there has been very little sunshine here to actually take any photos. I have finally managed to get a few snaps today to share with you.

Now unfortunately this kit was 'SOLD OUT' within 30 minutes of it being added to the Savvy Store, but I hope my pages to offer you some inspiration and for the lucky ones who did grab a kit, maybe you will find  some ideas.

April 2013 Were Savvy Kit

My first page you may have already spotted on the Savvy facebook page

Your best jump

This page was basically put together using the Echo Park 3x4 Journal paper, love how easy it was!

He is my prince

I put the Studio Calico Honeydew mist to work on this page. I used it to add splashes to the background and also to colour the chipboard.

Happy in the rain

I decided to make some use of the Fancy Pants Button packaging on this page, think it worked pretty well.

I still have some papers and embellies left to use, so I might just get a fourth page done at some stage.

Thanks for visiting my blog .

WOW April New Releases

The new releases are once again just amazing!! 
You can see the gorgeous projects the design team have created over on the blog

I always have fun playing with new designs.
The new title 'Treasure each day' was painted with white paint and then covered with crackle accent.
Once dry I randomly applied matching inks over the accents.

The Circle Corner Pack has been used as a wave border, they were inked with pink, outlined with gold gel pen and then coated with crackle accent.

How awesome is the new 12x12 Cog Frame!!!
I have used walnut ink crystals as the base colour of the frame and to give it plenty of texture.
The topical colors has been added using various colours of Brilliance Inks

Simply coloured with inks to co-ordinate with the papers.

Stuck?! April 1st Sketch

Hello Hello!!

It is the beginning of another month over at Stuck?! and Sara has created another fabulous sketch to inspire your mojo. Absolutely LOVED doing this one!

I had a little play with some Distress Inks and a Crafter's Workshop template to decorate my background.

Learning to ride

Head over to the blog to see what half of the DT girls have done with the sketch and remember to check back over the next few days to see what the other half of the team have done.

Entries are to be linked up over in the sidebar of the Blog no later than 11.59pm Tuesday April 30th 2013 to be in the running for one of this month's sponsor vouchers.
