Always Unique - Scrapmatts DT

Hello again Scrappy friends, thanks for visiting today.
I have some projects to share using Scrapmatts wonderful products.

First up is a page about our darling GD.  
The photos were taken recently and show how much she's grown in the past few months.
Because the Maja papers are a bit busy, I kept the page clean and simple.
The circle chipboard was lightly sponged with distress ink. I used it as a frame.
The flowers responded well to inking and the addition of tiny beads.
The bow to gathered them all together.
Love the new chipboard words which I inked randomly 
with different greens and topped with Glossy Accents.
The gold spots were added through a stencil with Silks acrylic glaze.
Products used:-

With Christmas in the air, I also made a two festive projects.
The first is a fun Bon-Bon card inspired by Collette Mitrega.
When it's closed it measures about 4" x 4"
and when pulled completely open it's 12" x 4"
The folds look a bit complicated, but it was quick and easy to do.
Great for using up all those little scraps and giving them a new life with some gorgeous chippies.
Scrapmatts chipboard used:-
CB6111 Assorted Words 27,  (the little tree comes with these words)
CB1228 Christmas Ornaments 14
CB1229 Chains 02

Finally, I made a shaker Christmas tree ornament.
CB6089 Christmas Tree 05
This comes in two sections.  I painted the chipboard at the back,
then the raised tree outline with a slightly darker green, with gold for the star and the base.
When all was thoroughly dry, I hand cut a piece of acetate to fit.
Popped in some sparkly bits, added the acetate on top and voila!

Thanks for calling in and for any comments you care to leave,  I love reading them.
