What are you most proud of ?

At this particular time in the historical Australian landscape, with unprecedented fires and record breaking droughts I find myself feeling extremely patriotic. 

I watch the unbreakable Aussie spirit raise itself up time and time again, I see people lending each other a hand in record numbers, donations to charities sky rocketing and stories of bravery and kindness abounding.

... And I feel PROUD! 

Proud to be a part of this beautiful country, proud to be a part of this amazing community and proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with my fellow Aussies as we face these difficult times together. So when it came to making Christmas cards this year I knew I was going to go Aussie themed all the way! 

And now I find these patriotic feeling are spilling over into my scrapbooking as well lol. I have had Aussie themed chipboards in my stash for ages, and it has been a pure delight to dig them out and use them lately. 

I hope all our Aussie readers out there are feeling some of this sense pride as well... may you know you are supported, admired and backed all the way. We are so blessed to be part of this amazing country made up of some of the toughest men and women on earth! We should never forget this and always celebrate it 💚

Here I've used the A6 diamond template and a white gel pen to easily get so patterns into my dark background.
White ink or Gesso would work just as well.

Aussie Christmas Cards...

I sent these cards all over the world this year to family in both Europe and the US 💚

I know these are a hexagon shape ( more reminiscent of honey bees) but I grew up with chicken wire that looked a whole it lot like this so they feel very Aussie back ground-ish to me! lol 😆

Its that time of year again.

Hi & Welcome

Well this is my 2nd last post before we head into the New Year, feels like yesterday that we celebrated last Christmas and I'm sure you feel the same.  The upside though is getting to spend some lovely days lazing by the pool and if you are fortunate enough you get to spend it with family as well.

Today I'm sharing with you some family snaps taken of my kids.

I've used the Scrapmatts splat stencil to help create my background along with so old rubons that were not getting used.

The chipboard stars have been inked, painted with some glitter to get them some extra sparkle.

On this page here I've used the splat stencil again but have made it more defined.  Along with some more chipboard stars and chipboard sentiments.

I have also used some old rubons that were laying around getting damaged, they worked perfectly in with my background.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this months creations, enjoy your Christmas as next time I post it would have well and truly have been and gone.

Merry Christmas and thank you for spending another year with us here at Scrapmatts!!
