It is only 8 weeks to Christmas....yes I am one of those crazy people who just loves Christmas! I love making things, decorating the house, making the Christmas cake and other baking, planning Christmas Day menu, and even Christmas shopping and wrapping of gifts!
I have a layout that I have created with a photo of Ben my oldest son opening his gifts last Christmas.
I'm not sure where this year has disappeared to but I do know that Christmas will be here way too soon! The last part of the year is full of birthdays for our family and our beautiful Isabella is about to turn 9 (I'm not sure where that time went either!). So I have had the journal out for another play and played around to create this:
Now the fun decorating begins!

Now back onto that theme that Christmas is coming! Here are some Christmas themed ATC's which I love to use as gift tags:
Using Scrapmatts chipboard ATC's Rounded Corners ATC 10-008, Ornate Frames 22 CB1220, Reindeer CB1094, Scrap words Mini Tags CB1216, Snowflakes 01 CB1178, Leaves 04 CB1152, Hanging Ornaments CB1183, Feathers CB1222, Scrapwords CB1198 and the new Poinsettia Paper Flowers
The gold finish was achieved by heat embossing using a gold embossing powder and lightly edging it in brown ink
I hope you get a chance to have a creative play soon :)
Thanks for popping by to see my latest layout featuring Scrapmatts chipboard. I love this Leaf Spray design, which comes with seven pieces and is very versatile. I've also popped in a couple of Scrap Words which I've found can be used on almost every layout.

Don't forget to share any projects you complete with Scrapmatts chipboard in our Ning gallery.
There is no doubt that spring is wedding season, and I have a couple over the next month myself. It is a good reason to make some celebration cards for the lovely occasions. That and my mum's 60th birthday.
I had a bit of fun with some gold and silver washi tape, silver flowers and scrapmatts to embellish these ones.
In the absence of printed photos for a scrapbook layout due some technological issues with my printer, I decided to get started on this years December Daily album, which I am doing in tag album form using Scrapmatts tags. Here is my cover page and I have started covering other pages with different christmas papers on each side in preparation for December.
