I am so excited as this is my very first post on Scrapmatts new blog! Not only do we have a new blog but as you may have already seen we have some new chipboard to play and some cute little charms!

I have created this card by using one of the fabulous new ornate frames (CB6093 Ornate Frames 21) and used the delicate little padlock charm (CH020 Lock #3). 

I have used a bronze distress stain to colour the chipboard ornate frame
  (CB6093 Ornate Frames 21) and the roses (CB1202 Roses 02) to add to the 
romantic vintage feel.

"Forever" tag

I have used lots of chipboard goodies for this tag. 
Firstly, I have embossed the chipboard tag (CB3007 Tags 03) using an embossing folder and cuttlebug, then covered the tag with distress paint and misted with glimmer mists. 

I have painted the flags (CB5101 Flags 02) in distress white, stamped in black ink, used distress ink on edges and then layered together . 
I love the versatility of the little gears (CB1078 Gears 05), I have also painted them with distress paint and placed behind other layers to add interest. I finished the tag off with a little butterfly (CB1028 Butterflies 18)  and words.

"Happiness Captured"

My last project that I would like to share with you this month is a layout of one of my nieces.  

I have used the stunning Window Set in white mist (CB5102 Window 02), roses (CB2023 Roses 01) and title from the chipboard words (CB4061 Assorted Words 17) which I have heat embossed with gold.

I hope that you get a chance to get creative yourself.
