Summer and Christmas - Lauren Tomecek

Scrapmatts has a fantastic range of nautical/ beach themed chipboard designs, so I was very excited to take Harrison for his first visit to the beach and have an excuse to use some of these pieces. Plus, he seemed to have a ball chasing seagulls and getting splashed by the waves.
Scrapmatts used: CB1209 Scrap Words 12, CB4059 Nautical Design 03 and CB4067 Marine Life 02. I also picked up the hessian ribbon and adorable anchor paperclip (in a pack of four designs) when I visited the Scrapmatts stand at an expo last year. It is always worth visiting them at an expo, as meeting Andrew and Sofie in person is a real treat and they run the best classes. Plus, they normally have specials on extra bits and pieces like these which you can't order online. :)
My second project is a double page Christmas spread using two new release designs. This one shows how many different techniques you can use to colour chipboard. Some parts have been inked with a stamp pad, some have been painted with acrylic paints and some parts have been coloured with pens.

 Scrapmatts used: CB5145 Christmas Shapes 01 and CB5144 Layered Poinsettias 01. The poinsettias look great layered up but I've chosen to keep mine to only one or two layers to share them around the page a bit more.
I hope you had a great Christmas and New Year and managed to find some time to create. Don't forget to share your creations with us over at the Ning gallery!
