November inspiration with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Scrapmatts November inspiration.
This month I decided to concentrate in masculine projects and made a masculine layout, masculine card and a Steanpunk pocket letter.
So let's first begin with a layout.
Those  are my oldest son and his son together. The photos are pretty much masculine and I can't even think about embellishments other than Scrapmatts chipboardsand stencils.
The whole page was covered with Diamonds using Scrapmatts stencil and texture paste and then, when dry, I outlined each and every diamond with black pen. It was pretty much hard work, but I love the result.
Then the Diamonds chipboard was painted into black and added on both sides of the layout.
Then I added the # Always word to make it up to date and trendy.
The arrow, black painted again, moves the eye to the words that made my " journalling".
I also added a small sub title on the lower photo and it is about being together.
Small watch was the last embellishment on this page.

And as more masculine chippies were on the desk I made a pretty masculine card with a lot of Scrapmatts chipboards and actually this card is Scrapmatts.

My last project for November is a Pocket letter.

Pocket Letters are very trendy. You use this Baseball/Football cards plastic pockets and make 9 cards that are close to ATC size. Usually this is folded after it's done and you can mail it to the friend.
You also can add some small crafty supplies inside, but I didn't do it this time as this is not for shipping.
I used one single paper collection to make those cards and even recycled the cover as the papers there were the right ATC size.
So on the top you can see all 9 cards that all were made with the same stitched rectangle die as the background using one single sheet of dotted cardstock.
Then the top pieces were die cut with the smaller rectangle die and glued over the basic cards.
Each card was embellished with die cuts, chipboards, twine, sequins and yet they all should be flat as
 this " letter"  is going to be folded after all.
I made the central card as the letter title and this is all about a Celebration!
So two cards around are with dancing people die cuts  and they sure celebrate something.
Almost each card has a piece of Scrapmatts something.
Most of them have words that make the sense as this is a kind of a visual letter.
I added chains, gears and triangles to most of the cards and as you can see the words make sense.
Like " Let's celebrate today" is connected to " Celebrate" and "Timeless Moments".

Here we have living memories.

And here we forever cherish our life.

Or even the better way: Memories live forever.
