Scrapmatts with CSI Case Files

Hi everyone! Christine here posting a couple of layouts for Scrapmatts in collaboration with CSI for June.  I solved 2 different case files and of course I used lots of Scrapmatts chipboards and stencils.  Let's have a look at the first case:
I’ve appropriately titled the first layout "Zoom" as my youngest daughter literally zooms her way around with her balance bike…no fear whatsoever!  Red for her energy, circles for the bike wheels, and more colors for her fun loving personality.  This page embodies her and her balance bike to a tee.
Scrapmatts chipboards: Bubbles (CB5131); Circles (CB5152); Assorted Words (CB6106); Scrap Words (CB1238)
Scrapmatts Stencil: Clouds (ST1030)

I’m in love with the new circles chipboard.  Sofie and Andrew are doing a fantastic job creating new chipboard and stencil designs.  I’ve embossed it in different colors to match the green and cantaloupe colors of the case.  Check out the adorable clouds.  Thanks to the clouds stencil it’s easy to add them to your backgrounds.  The cream color on the scrap words chipboards are lovely & these are great for filling up little spaces in your projects.

I’ve used a couple of assorted words chipboards, some painted and some embossed.  I’ve also used the off cut to mat the photos…nothing must go to waste.  I’ve painted the bubbles chipboard in multi color to match the blue, green and yellow shades of the palette.  I love how these bubbles chipboards have dots in them.
So that's the first case solved.  Now it's time to have a look at the second case:
My daughter loves to imagine from a very young age...imaginative play, singing, dancing, acting, etc., so this page is a homage to her.  I've thrown purples in the layout which is her favourite color and also matches the palette of the case. 

Scrapmatts Chipboards: Hearts Frame (CB4005), Ornate Frame (CB5002), Birds (CB5045), Page Borders (CB2005), Scrap Words (CB1238), Scrap Words (CB6112)
Scrapmatts Stencils: Strings (ST1021), Circles (ST5006)

How awesome are the new Scrapmatts stencils? The strings stencil would have to be my new favourite.  The ornate frames chipboards are gorgeous and I couldn't resist layering them to feature her photo.  The hearts frame has been painted and the ornate frame has been embossed.

Did I mention how pretty the birds chipboards are? These come in a pack of 2 sets and has separate adorable wings that you can add on top of the chipboard.
I hope you enjoyed my post today.  Do join the CSI case challenges here for the chance to win an amazing Scrapmatts prize pack! Thanks for popping in and I'll see you again next month.
