November Scrapping with Lisette

Wow doesn't time fly.  Almost missed this post - made it just in time.

I caught up with the lovely Sofie and Andrew on Saturday and the Paper Craft Show.  I now have some the latest Chipboard and Stencils and I am very excited to have a play with them.  Hopefully I will be able to have a play with them soon.  Fingers crossed.

My first layout for November is my DT layout for Made to Scrap - the Aussie Way challenge.  I love how this layout ended up.  I don't often use soft pretty colours and this piece of Coco Vanilla paper was perfect with some added watercolours.

Products Used:-

 Stencil 9050 hearts

 CB6117 Assorted Words 30

CB1158 Butterflies 20

CB5177 Wildflowers 04

 My next layout is one of the Rhinoceros' at Mogo Zoo on the South Coast of NSW.  We had a fabulous day there last April.  Love this layout too, quite simple!

Products used:-

Stencil 9005 Cracks



 Stencil 9003 Circles

CB125 Diamond Mesh 01

CB1158 Butterflies 20

CB5001 Grass 02

Thank you for having a look at my layouts and how I have used the lovely Scrapmatts Chipboards and Stencils.  This is a very busy time of year but hopefully you will be able to get some time to create.

Until December - Happy Scrapping

November Creations with Scrapmatts.

Hello there,
Are you getting excited for the end of another year?
This month is a busy one for me, I have my Daughters Year 12 Graduation and a Wedding, so lots to keep me busy this month... But first I must share two layouts I have created using wonderful Scrapmatts products!!

The first layout is of my Daughter. We are blessed to live in a country area and have 5 acres of land.. Down the back of our place on the creek bank we have some beautiful gum trees, and I have used a photo of my Daughter leaning on one of them... Well Scrapmatts have some lovely Australian themed chipboard and stencils and I used some fabulous Gum Leaves and Gum Nuts on my page..

Some closer views..

I have colored the Gum Nuts and Gum Leaves and added them to the papers which were perfect for my page..  Can you tell what is Chipboard and what is paper???  I used water colors to achieve the colors on the chipboard..

And I love this lovely Federation corner with a kookaburra on it as we have lots of the happy birds living in our trees!

I love how this page turned out with the fabulous Gum leaves and nuts chipboard..

Here is a list of what Scrapmatts I have used..

CB1239 Scrap Words 25

CB5065 Federation Corners 10

CB5147 Gum Leaves 01

CB5148 Gum Leaves 02

The second layout I would like to share is of my Darling Grand Daughter.. Yes I became a Grandma this year, and what a delight that is for me, as most of my friends are all Grandparents, so now my Hubby and I are enjoying all that comes with Grandchildren.. but oh... they grow so fast! I am trying to keep up with the monthly milestones, but am finding the months are going so quickly! So I grabbed the photo of her at 7 months and scrapped it!! And all I used for my layout are those gorgeous Wildflower chipboards.. they are so sweet on my page!

A couple of close ups.

I traced around the chipboard flower and added a backing to the flower. I love how this looks.. I simply added some pink stickles to the paper part and some liquid pearl dots to the centers of the flowers.. The leaves were colored with glitter pens..

I put the sweet photo in the lovely frame and I think my simple page looks very effective giving my precious photo the attention it deserves.

7 months.
Isn't she the cutest!! well I certainly think so!! I love how pretty those Wildflower chipboard look on my page..

And I used..

CB5177 Wildflowers 04

CB4073 Wildflowers 02

CB4072 Wildflowers 01

Well I hope you are inspired from today's post, thanks so much for dropping by.. I know the days seem to get busier from now on for most of us... I do hope you get some creative time in the midst of it!
Until next time,
Happy Scrapmatting!

November Creations with Tania

Hello there!

Tania joining you today to share some projects I created for this month using lots of gorgeous Scrapmatts goodies! 

First up this month I have a layout.....

"Picture Perfect"

I used the diamonds template to add a little texture to the background paper and once dry added a some amount of colour.

The large frame and butterflies I coloured using some Colour Blast Texture Paste and the smaller butterflies and leaves were coloured with Dylusions Shimmer Spray.  I finished the page with lots of pretty blooms and some titles from the Scrap Words 25 Collection.

Here's some close ups of my finished page.......

My second share for this month is a couple of Christmas cards, can you believe next month it is Christmas??

I wanted to add lots of layers to the cards so I built them up with distressed papers and some gorgeous gold doilies.  I kept the chipboard raw in the white finish on one card and the other one I painted my chipboard pieces in gold paint.  Added some matching blooms and finished off with a Christmas Bauble Title on each....

First card.

Some close ups.....

Second card.

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

November Sharing by Kim

Hello...hello...dear friends of Scrapmatts.
 Kim here to share with you a couple of my creations using Scrapmatts chipboard.

First of all I would like to share with you all a layout.
This layout features my middle daughter Madison.
Take a look....
 {Unique, Lovely, Sweet}
 For this layout I used the actual chipboard flower sheet as a stencil.....I had these chipboard flowers in the raw chipboard and was painting them with heavy gesso when I notice how cool the leftover gesso on my craft sheet looked so, I stenciled a few on my background layers.

When purchasing these chipboard flowers you can pick the colour you would like them in.

A sweet easel card.
