I've Got Adventure in My Soul

I've Got Adventure in My Soul

Good morning beautiful followers. I hope you are all having a fantastic day.

Today I am sharing a layout with you that I completed yesterday. 
My apologies I only have the one but I have been away on holidays and then back to work, leaving little time to create.

I have decided to use the CSI Case File No 275 for this layout.
I was inspired by the desktop screen and the watercolour screen saver and the colours in the wall hangings.

I've Got Adventure in my Soul

To create this layout I have used the Blessed collection from Kaisercraft.

 I have used oxide inks and water to create the background, to give the watercolour effect.

To create the clusters, I used a combination of flowers, collectables, bling and chipboard from Scrapmatts

I am loving the new titles from Scrapmatts, one of which I have used for my title. 
To colour it, I used a gold sparkle wink of stella pen.

Here are the list of items used to create this layout.

Hi all

This month I tried to do something slightly more modern to match this beautiful photo of my niece - but I think I still eneded up more vintage

I had fun with texture paste and Scrapmatts stencils in the background of the layout, and layered the beautiful Prima papers and flowers  in amongst the Scrapmatts chipboard

To make the below card I used the pieces that I had left from the layout, this included some pieces of flowers that I had pulled apart. I tried to make it match the layout by making the Scrapmatts chipboard frame the focal piece

These are the Scrapmatts products that I have used for these projects:

Living the Dream

 I'm thrilled to be back on the Scrapmatts blog today sharing some recent layouts I pulled together using the clever chipboard and stencil designs that Sophie and Andrew have come up with ... I'm constantly impressed with the scope of possibilities I can use these embellishments for! 

In the following pages I use the positive and negative shapes in a net template, a gorgeous set of chains to build titles onto and the cutest little splatter stencil to add fantastic interest to the layouts...

The Net chipboard is too easy to use, just cut and paste and it looks perfect on any beachy themed layout ... and how fantastic are these gorgeous set of chains... I'm LOVING using these! Here I've used them to build up a hanging set of title words 💚


Theres literally so much in one pack of chipboard 'netting' I managed a second layout out of that embellishment pack... and more hanging chain and titles. The splatter template earned its self a home in my heart forever with this layout... It was so easy to use and looks so good I've decided to give that template the 
'Best $4 I ever spent' 


And here we are on the third layout ... you guessed it, I'm still using the same set of chipboards and splatter stencil ... 
these embellishments REALLY stretch!! 
The only different here is that I've used the negative bits from the net chipboard packet .... I Cannot thank Scrapmatts enough for not letting those precious little scraps fall on the floor during production, because I find those edgy little diamonds really funky!



At the end of all of that, I still had stuff left so I decided I could squeeze a card out as well... this time a diamond template in the background helped bring in the extra colour I was after. 

So this weeks hot tip is: go grab yourself a splatter template and some netting and chain chipboards... you will be amazed how far they take you 💚
