Celebrating special occasions with Scrapmatts

Hello again crafty people! I'm back after taking last month off to spend some time with my new baby. Harrison Donald Tomecek was born on 5.8.14 and has consumed my life since that time. People tell me it gets easier after 6-8 weeks, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Right now though I'm managing on very little sleep and even less craft time. I did manage to whip up a painters tray as a Fathers Day gift for my husband though.
I love the variety of painters trays available (circles, hearts, stamps) and they are such an easy way to do an OTP project. Just pop in a photo or two, maybe a quote and embellish away!
Scrapmatts used: CB1078 Gears 05; CB1189 Scrapwords 01 and CB6094 Mini Tray Stamp 01.

My other project for this month was originally intended to be one of last month's projects, however my waters broke while I was working on it! I love doing Christmas layouts and find the Kaisercraft ranges work perfectly with the huge variety of Scrapmatts Christmas pieces available.

I have only used two chipboard designs on this layout but they are two of my favourite Christmas ones. The ornaments were coloured with distress inks and the stars have been embossed with gold.

Scrapmatts used: CB6081 Christmas Stars 02, CB1059 Christmas Ornaments 07.
