Hi there! I have a few projects to share using Scrapmatts gorgeous chipboards

I made this card with some beach-themed chippies, aren't they lovely?? It's the set  CB6062 Shells 02

I also made another card and I used one of the pretty metal embellishments

In this card I used the CH017 Filigree Corners #2 and the CB6091 Ornate Frames 19 . I painted both the chipboard and the charm with metallic paints and turquoise chalk ink.

Autumn is Here

Autumn is finally here!! 
Mid March and we are at last getting some relief from the hot weather here in Western Australia. 
I love the cooler mornings and evenings and watching all the leaves change colour.

Today I have a few projects that I would like to share with you all. 

"January" Tag

I have covered the CB3008 Tags, in paper then used a stencil and gesso to add some texture. I have coloured the CB1016 Bird Cage in a gold distress ink, along with the CB1124 Hinge. I have also used

"February" Tag

As February is the month of "Love" I have created this tag on this theme.
I have used CB3007 Tags, the stunning new CB5113 Heart FramesCB1166 Cupids,
,CB1212 &  CB1189 Scrapwords , and one of our new and totally cute charms  CH030 Arrows.

My next project is a Layout that I have created using brighter than my normal choice of colours, which I did tone down using distress inks. 

"Pictures of You"

My last project that I wish to share with you is one where I managed to get some natural photos of my eldest son when we had spent the day at the river. I have used the stunning CB8005 Layered Frame in White Mist.

" Remember When"

Thank you for stopping by and seeing what we have all been creating here at Scrapmatts.

Work/Life Balance in Action

In a perfect example of the constant struggle to achieve a work/life balance, I have created one LO about my personal life and completed one off-the-page project for work.

My work recently gave all the staff members notebooks in which to record topics for discussion at our fortnightly staff meetings to further our understanding of best practice principles. My first question was of course 'Can I decorate this?', given they were all the same brightly rainbow striped books.

After a very fun session of getting inky, this is the end result of my new 'Best Practice' notebook. I love this style of mixed media as it looks you use up lots of left over bits and pieces. I used a lot of beautiful Scrapmatts chipboard on this cover: CB5002 Ornate Frame 03; CB4063 Leaf Spray 13; CB6036 Dress Forms 01; CB1204 Ribbon Banners 01; CB1121 Words 26 Best Wishes; CB1145 Flowers 09.

Here we have the first baby-related scrapbook page! In my true fashion of scrapping things late, this is the 8 week ultrasound and I am currently at 17 weeks. I'm sure I will only fall further behind from here. It feels like ages since the last time I scrapped anything, I think it might have been a full month. Morning sickness decided to ramp up rather than go away in my second trimester so it's still taking me a little while to get through everything and unfortunately keeping the house clean-ish has eaten into my craft time.

This is a Scrapmatts DT LO so have lots of lovely little chipboard pieces on it: CB1002 Flourishes 03; CB5110 Layered Owls 02; CB5107 Arrows 01; CB1189 Scrapwords 01; CB1220 Ornate Frames 22 (Feb new release).
Close up shots show off the Scrapmatts chipboard, which I have just painted in suitable colours to match the LO. The 'Oh Happy Day' tag pulls out and contains some brief journalling. Papers are from Kaisercraft.

Magical Beauty!

Hello there Everyone, I hope you have all had a great weekend!
I love lazy weekends when I can occasionally have the day to myself  and get to scrap - (with 3 children sometimes it's near impossible). Lucky me was child free for the day.... so here is my layout I created featuring 'Scrapmatts Chipboard 'with a magical photo of my Daughter Mackenna. 

The Photo shoot was titled 'Magical Fairies' .

 Scrapmatts products List:

Trees 03 CB5044
Leaves 02 CB1116
Vines 01 CB2020
Leaves 05 CB5086
Leaf Spray 02 CB5082
Name plate 01 CB1148
Scrap Words 08 CB1200

I have often heard the question - how much chipboard can you use on one layout before it becomes too much - I love to layer and cluster chipboard ..... so I say 'don't even think about it', just create!
Other Products- 7 Dots STudio - 9th Wave and Manor House flowers.

Thanks for dropping by the blog, stay a while and enjoy.
