Cyber Crop Trailer and pre crop challenge

Not long to wait now for a weekend of film inspired scrapbooking fun from your ATDML design team. Do spread the word and share among your crafty friends. The more the merrier!

Here's just a sample of what's to come from the team this weekend 📽 Your official ATDML Trailor

And if you cannot wait for tomorrow why not have a go at our pre-crop challenge.
Simply pick a film title that we don't already have covered by our classes and use it to inspire your page. I have a feeling a certain customer may pick a Harry Potter film for this challenge as we don't have a Harry class!!! So grab your (virtual) ticket for our cyber crop of creativity starting tomorrow at 6pm!

August Inspired by Challenge

Hello, we meet again for another "Inspired by" Challenge.  Due to the forthcoming cybercrop this weekend I thought I would bring you the August Inspired by challenge a little early.

How are you inspired by the image below? Does it make you want to create a layout featuring elements or colours from the image? However you are inspired do share it with us for a chance to win a £5 atdml voucher. This is quite a funky one so I am looking forward to seeing what you all come up with! 

I am thinking music and splats and a creation of colour from the centre of the page... lets see what we all come up with.

As always this challenge is open until the end of the month.

August's Scraplift Challenge

Hello, hello lovlies.

For August's scraplift challenge I have chosen this layout by Jane to scraplift.

Due to her very busy worklife Jane only occasionally adds projects to the gallery but every time she does I am in awe of her creativity.  This month we are so lucky to have a huge selection of her work in the August Gallery and I seriously recommend you pop over and have a look - you will be as amazed as I was, especially with the Sherlock Holmes board game!

I thought the punched and folded border was such a lovely idea, and of course my lovely Kiera had to be the star of the show.  I used my Silhouette to cut out some flowers and leaves to replicate the G45 die cut ones that Jane used, fussy cut some butterflies and my page was complete.

As always, I am really excited to see what you come up with this month.

The ATDML gallery can be found on the 'Information' section -  at the right-hand side of the ATDML shop site .

Happy Scraplifting x

Graphic 45 Gallery Highlights

This months gallery is packed with Graphic 45, and Jane has made loads of beautiful items, so here is just a peak of some of the goodies that are in there.  First up is a beautiful set of tags, one for each month of the year - so much cutting and layering!

With the scrap lift in mind I love this layout about Bridget, with the tartan elements and flowers and pretty lace border to the circle.

 Another beautiful Christmas creation, complete with a jewelled Christmas tree at the centre which would look gorgeous on any mantel piece.

Another favourite I couldn't leave out is this Sherlock Holmes game - how beautiful is that?

Here is one of my favourite pages from this month - I really love the Natures Sketchbook collection ad all the beautiful elements you can cut out...and the fantastic pre-die-cut flowers that co-ordinate perfectly.

Here is the link for the Gallery so you can check out all the other beautiful projects.
