Beautiful Moments Layout With Novita Ferris

Hello everyone

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentines Day with your family and loved ones and welcome back to the Scrapmatts blog where I would like to sharing my first layout for this year. 

I was inspired by this beautiful photo of me and my son that was taken 4 years ago while on holiday in Melbourne and I wanted create something beautiful that reminds me of our beautiful moments.

For this creation I have used Scrapmatts gorgeous chipboard flourishes, sentiments and a sheet of hollow brickwork. 

Here are some close ups.....

Well that's all from me today. 
I hope you like what I made and will feel motivated to get creative.

Scrapping with Heather

Since my last post I was lucky enough to attend Creativation in Phoenix America. So many new products and ideas!!
I have also been challenged to find the Joy in scrapbooking/cardmaking again. I love designing, playing and teaching. As such it has meant that I have spent a lot of time trying to do what I think people want me to do, and somewhere along the way I lost the Joy. This year, with the help of the amazing Scrapmatts team and products I've found the Joy again.
I had so much fun doing this layout. The photo wasn't my first choice, but I thought it was important to do one of myself

My challenge for you  - find a photo of yourself and create a page or a project using some of your favourite Scrapmatts products, create something that brings you joy, then come back and share it with us.

I have used Scrapmatts chipboard flourishes, sentiments and frame. I have also used a couple of the stencils in the background  - details are below

Thanks for spending time with me today. Looking forward to seeing your projects

Pretty in Pink ...

So recently I managed to get my hands on some DIVINE pink papers from Coco Vanilla Studio... having 4 girls in my tribe, I'm always on the look out for pretty pink papers and these were just perfect for this fun layout using circle chippies ...

I started out with a set of these gorgeous string circles ... they are cut from white chipboard to begin with which is FANTASTIC and very handy, so I didn't have to do anything beside stick them down! My favourite kind of embellishment!! lol

CB5139 - String Circles 03          CB6105 Assorted Words 23

I used a large circle template and some light pink Inka Gold wax to create the shimmering circles you can see on the page ( and colour the words on the arrows) and a smaller circle template and a white pen to do the background circles.

Stencil 9007 - Circles A4         Stencil 9071 - Circles A5

 I also used the smaller template to guide me as I added some 
black dot circles to the layout as well.

And these fabulous word expressions I simply stuck on as is - too easy!

And just a quick step card to finish off todays share...
 made with the same Coco Vanilla papers as the previous layout, this very simple card used some feathers and arrow tail string circle chipboards to 
create dimension and detail.

Thanks for having a look all the way to the bottom! lol

Cheers form Kel.

February Creations with Tania

Hello there!

Tania joining you today to share some projects I created as part of my DT work for February, using lots of gorgeous Scrapmatts goodies! 

First up this month I have a couple of cards.....

I created the card backgrounds by using some distressed patterned paper layers.  I added more layers using the Parisian Moments and Vintage Frame Montage Creations.  First time using them, so many gorgeous designs........

I painted up some Ornate Frames with Pearl sparkly paint.  The other chipboard pieces have been left raw.  The finished off my cards using some pretty blooms and a Happy Birthday sentiment.

The first card.......

Some close ups......

Second card......

A few close ups.....

My second project to share with you this month is an altered Handbag Caddy.

I painted the wood pieces in pearl paint and while they were still wet I sprinkled glitter over them,  yes crazy I know!!  I'm still finding glitter everywhere lol! But in saying that the Handbag Caddy was a gift for a friend's little girl and just to see the gorgeous happy smile on her face made it all worth it!!!
Once dry I covered the outside pieces with patterned papers.  I also painted up the Mini Heart tray, butterflies and lavender chippies in the pearl paint and covered them with glitter.  I added the Heart to the front and then embellished around it with pretty blooms.  I tucked the lavender chippies into the flower clusters and added a couple of butterflies to the handle and bottom left of the bag.  I finished off by adding the word "Dream".

Some close ups......

Well that's all from me today!  I hope I have inspired you all a little.  Don't forget to check out the store here for all your Scrapmatts goodies, and also pop back to the blog to see the gorgeous creations from the other DT girls.

 Until next time, happy crafting Tania xx
