Cards, Tags, Sunsets and New Releases!

Welcome to my blog post for February. February is such an exciting time because it's the start of all the craft shows in the new year which means lots of exciting new releases! Scrapmatts have heaps of stunning new designs this year (I'm loving the hanging hearts some of the girls showed earlier this month) and I have featured a couple of the other designs in my projects for this month too.

First up I created a matching card and tag set. I think there's nothing wrong with repeating a design if it works for you on a second project. These two are both a bit more feminine than my usual work but it was enjoyable to change it up.
Scrapmatts goodies used: CB6090 Ornate Frames 18 (NEW); CH004 Filigree Flower #2; CH010 Filigree Flower #5; CB1121 Words 26 Best Wishes; CB3011 Tags 07; CB1204 Ribbon Banners 01; CB1198 Scrapwords 06.

I was also sent a pack of the mini-tag scrapwords new release and even though the pack is sailing theme, I found these two tags were perfect for my sunset layout. Don't be afraid to think outside the box when using chipboard, sometimes using it for something other than it's intended purpose gives the most amazing results.

This last card is just a quick valentines day card I threw together for my husband with some bits and pieces I had lying around.
