July with Lisette

Hi everyone

Gee the 13th of the month rolls around quickly.  Almost forgot my post!!!

Unfortunately I haven't done much scrapping recently, but I am so glad that I am lucky enough to attend a scrapbooking retreat everyone few months, so I can stock up on my layouts!

My first layout today is of my beautiful family on a night out in the city in January for my husbands birthday.  I have probably said it before, but I love going out with our girls as adults.

 I love using products from Aussie companies - obviously Scrapmatts - but have also used Coco Vanilla papers and Colour Blast Embossing powders & shimmer pots.  They all work so well together.  This was the first time I had used the Wildflower chipboard - love it!

Products Used:-

CB5177 Wildflowers 04

CB1159 Hearts 05

 CB6113 Scrapwords 32

CB6095 Assorted words 19

In this layout I have again used Scrapmatts, Coco Vanilla & Colour Blast products.

Products Used:-

ST5024 Stencil Tile pattern

CB1235 Leaf Spray 14

I hope you have seen something in my layouts that inspires you.  I am heading to retreat in a couple of weeks so will have some fresh layouts for you in August.

Until then

Happy Scrapping

C.S.I. Challenges using SCRAPMATTS.

Hello there,
How is your week going? I am mid winter here and I mustn't complain as Winter is needed, and it makes for good days indoors creating!!

Once again the Team from Scrapmatts were invited to be Guest Designers for the challenges over at C.S.I. Color Stories Inspiration Challenge and I would like to share two of my layouts from two of the challenges..

The first layout was created for the Mid June Challenge which was to document something about summer. Well I had to find some fabulous Scrapmatts beachy chippies for my page and then I created my layout.

some closer views ..

 I love the different types of chipboard shell available by Scrapmatts.

Just some randomly cut Net chipboard.

Ah the Tranquility of the beach...

This photo was taken early one morning when we were at the beach, the water was so blue and beautiful...

The Scrapmatts I have used for my page...

CB6087 Assorted Words 15

CB5168 Net 01

The second layout I am sharing was created for the C.S.I. Color Stories Inspiration challenge #257 which was to document something summer...  So again I found a photo of my Dd when we had a summer holiday and created my page..

some closer views..

I popped a shell just lightly swiped with gesso in my flower cluster and a little frame is peeking out there too..

The fabulous Diamond Mesh is one of my favourite chippies to add some texture.

I put my chipboard banner pieces through two different embossing folders and I love the added interest the texture has given to the banner.. A light swipe with gesso using my finger is all I have put on them... The word summer was painted with gesso and then the same water color I used on the back ground in places.

My layout..

Ah I love going to the beach in summer time!!!

and the Scrapmatts I have used for this layout..

July Creations with Tania

Hello there!

Tania joining you today to share my July Scrapmatts projects with you all!!
First up this month I have a Heart canvas to share...... I had so much fun getting messy making this canvas and love how the colours turned out!

I used the Bricks stencil to add texture to the background.  Then I got messy adding lots of colour using an assortment of colouring mediums.  Once I was happy with the colours I began to add my embellishments.  I altered my chipboard pieces with some new Dylusions Shimmer sprays. Added some paper straws and then my photos.  I finished off the canvas with lots of yummy blooms.......

Here's a few close ups.....

My second share for today is a layout.  I had a little fun playing on snapchat recently so I decided to scrap one of those photos lol!

I added lots of torn layered edges on this page and then used the Paint Drips Stencil on the background.  I added a photo and created a couple of flower clusters either side of it and then tucked in the gorgeous page borders on either side keeping them in the white finish.  

a few close ups......

Well that's all from me today,  thanks for stopping by the blog, I do hope I have inspired you all a little.  Be sure to check out the store here for all your gorgeous Scrapmatts goodies........

 Until next time, happy crafting Tania xx
