ATC critera
thank you theme

Tamara's ATC

Here is my take on this months ATC:

I used the new Fancy Pants "Kraft Kuts" range, and cut the cute little Owl out of one of the papers.

Melody's Layout

hiya everyone heres my layout for july.

i used purple as my main colour and added some buttons, kindy glitz,chipboard which i inked. ribbon was also used.
i added a journalling tag which i wrote 20 words on.

Ceci's July layout

Here is my take on this months challenge.....I chose pink for my monochromatic page, as I it goes so well with black and white. The other criteria are 4 or more buttons and 20 words or more journalling.

Have fun trying this challenge and you could win a $10 voucher from Scrap Therapy! :o)

My Take On The JULY Challenge

This is my first challenge as a Design Team member for Scrap Around The Clock and I LOVED it..... I got out some paint, layered some paper and here is what I came up with:

The black dots up the side of my journalling are buttons, and the journalling reads: I really want to get my lip pierced, so to try it out I bought this fake one, I'm still unsure whether to get it pierced!
Scrap Around The Clock has recently set up a forum over on ning, head over there to see what we're up to - with competitions and challenges!!
I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with, see you next month.

June Challenges at Scrap Around The Clock - Michelle W

Another month another great challenge.

I had heaps of fun playing around with this one. Pulled out some of my trusty faithful clear stamps and water colour pencils. Just gotta love creating your own patterned paper. Don't you just love hand cutting too.. well I do...bit of a nut that way... hand cut the flowers from a matching patterned paper and cover some chipboard to create the title for this LO. Such a fun layout too being able to create something in a different shape.

Here's what I created for this challenge :
"You" Layout -

"You" Layout Close up -

Why not head over to the forum and give this months challenge a go !

Cheers, M x

Scrap Therapy Cybercrop 5th June

The fabulous talents of our guest Design Team!

Setting your challenges for this month's cybercrop (which starts on Friday morning!) will be....



Kellyr and


Head on over to Scrap Therapy for some great challenges

Amanda's ATC

Hi everyone! I was nervous at first doing an ATC as I've never tried one before, but once I got going it was great fun!

I used an offcut of patterned paper and layered on some borders cut from scraps of cardstock. I stamped some swirls across the background and handwrote the quote. The glittered die-cut transparency is by K&Co in the bottom left corner, and then I topped it off with some stickles and bling. Gotta love the bling!
I can't wait to see all the June submissions - I hope you have as much fun with this challenge as I did.

I'd also like to say a big thank you to Scrap Therapy, our generous sponsor :)

Bye for now :)

ATC by Cas

Well, there are already a few inspiring creations by the rest of the DT so I can't wait to see your take on these challenges.

Here's my ATC:

I'm not sure whether you can see the stamping as I did it in white on a light blue background :S.  It says "Best Buds".  For my PP, I used a scrap from the BG Offbeat series and then I added a couple of flowers and some bling... also, I glimmer-misted pretty much everything.

Cas :)

Sandra's Take on the June Challenge

My task was to make a friendship ATC. I've used a Kaiser stamp which says 'if friends were flowers, i'd pick you'. I've added a flower and some bling for the centre and the stem, as well as some pp for the ground.
