November Layouts

 Hi everyone

Wow I can't believe it is November already!  What a strange year we have had.  Even though we have not been able to travel overseas, I am still finding travel photos to Scrap.

Here are another couple of layouts from our Borneo/George Town trip last year.

I love the 'footpaths' of old George Town.  This was for a challenge about Arches.

Products Used

ST5064 Stencil - Scallop Pattern

CB6118 Boho01

CB1268 Floral Spray 16

My next layout is another one from our Mt Kinabalu climb. I am sure you are sick of these by now!  This was a geometric challenge.

Products Used

ST9087 Squares Stencil

ST9070 Diamonds Stencil

CB5126 Diamond Mesh

CB1109 Hearts 05

CB6105 Assorted Words 23

CB6095 Assorted Words 18

Have you seen the new Scrapmatts website?  All sparkly and new and so easy to navigate.  Pop over and have a look.  You might even find some new goodies that you just have to have.

By the time you read my next post it will almost be Christmas!  Make sure you put all the stresses of this strange year aside and enjoy this time with your family and friends.

Until then,

Happy Scrapping

November Creating with Lizzy.

 Hello there! I hope your day is going well.. Here we are in November.. This year is getting along so quickly!

I have two layouts to share with you today and I hope they inspire you in your Scrapmatts creations.

For my first layout I have used a photo of my Son in the middle of a jam session.. He has been a Drum player since High School and he really gets involved in his playing.. I have used several different Scrapmatts chipboard pieces and a favourite stencil..

some closer views..


I think this title is perfect for my page and for my son.. I popped some bling on the notes of the music chipboard for some sparkle. I have used a Music Score Border chipboard that was painted navy blue. (For those who read music, this is the music to Happy Birthday, but I loved it for the way the notes sweep across the layout.. there are no rules to how we use embellishments, I go by the look of them. Having said that this chipboard would be perfect for a Birthday layout too!!)


I stencilled some stars onto the back ground and popped some chippy stars painted navy for some dimension..


Another closer view of the Music Chipboard..


I popped some Chevrons painted navy on the Retro Squares chipboard.. Layering chipboard looks great I think!

Live every moment..


and here is a list of the Scrapmatts I have used..

ST5002 Stars  


CB1249 Stars 04 



CB2010 Music Score 01 


CB5141 Retro Squares 01 


CB1252 Scrap Words 35 


CB5106 Chevrons 01 


The second layout I would like to share is with a photo of my Daughter at the Brisbane Ekka some years ago.. She has a country heart and while she lives in the City, the country life is a part of her.. While at the Show she was able to get close to some cows while they were resting in their stalls..

And Scrapmatts had a perfect country Chippies for me to use!!

Some closer views..


I popped a few special little words around the page.. I thought the Barbed Wire frame was great for my layout !!


Some Chipboard flowers colored and flower sequins popped on for sparkle..


How cute are the chippy Cows!!?? 

I love them!!! Simply colored with an ink pad. I added some color to this one with a gel pen.. I love the windmill too.. My dad had one on his farm when I was growing up.

Love is kind.


And here is a list of the Scrapmatts I have used for this layout..

Merry Christmas Shadow Box

Today I would love to share with you a frame that I completed recently using the gorgeous Merry & Bright Papers from Mintay.

These papers just lend themselves to fussy cutting and creating 3D effects.
