New Year's card

Hello dear friends! I congratulate all of you with coming New Year! To all of you you good health also is a lot of love! :) And now I want to show you the real magic New Year's card with powered by chipboard-my tremendous favourite! I adore him and I won't be tired to make a declaration of love to him! 
 The card has turned out multilayered. There is even manual knitting, it pink color. Chipboard I have painted with a glitter! 

The great number of New Year's chipboards also looks very effectively!

And I made a New Year's envelope. Chipbord remarkably fit into the song! I have it painted a silver glitter.

Wonderful to you holidays!

December Inspiration with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my December inspirational post.
As always I made one layout and two other, smaller projects and this time it's a tag and a notebook cover.
So first the layout I made with my adorable grand daughter photo and DCWV paper stack.
I used a lot  of home  made die cuts, but I felt that I really need some Scrapmatts chipboards to make this layout to stand out.
So I added the Circle mesh background that was painted with black acrylics. Then the Circles were added  on the right side of the page in their " bare" way.

One  Xoxo arrow was painted into black and added on the lower corner. And as you can see the small chipboard circles from the mesh were added as dotted embellishments  all around the page.

The " live every moment" was added on the journalling tag as one of the sayings.

More scrap words were added under the photo as more journalling.

And the last, but not the least- Happy  title was added with the hush tag. So modern, so real, so happy little 3 years old girl!

Product list for Scrapmatts:
Assorted words 28 CB6115
Scrap words 22 CB1236
Circles 02 CB5152
Assorted words 23 CB105
Circle mesh 02 CB5129
Scrap words 32 CB6113

My second project for today is a Tropical tag.
I know that it's a Winter or at least kind of it, where I live. But  in the other half of the world it's Summer and I wanted to make something bright and shiny and warm.
So I made this tag and I am totally happy to see those lovely Scrapmatts flowers and leaves on my double tag here:

 I used new Scrapberry's Tropic collection and painted the bare chipboards with Art Anthology different paints.

 Scrapmatts products used:
Tags CB3007
Ferns 02 CB5089
Flanel Flowers 01 CB5146
Circle Mesh 02 CB5129
Words? to add number

My last inspiration for today is a notebook cover made with totally different colors, but still the Scrapmatts products are the main stars of the piece.

The notebook was covered with Papericious cardstock.

I added two chipboard frames  that were heat embossed  and made the sentiment  with one Scrapmatts word that was added to paper cut words to make the whole notebook title.
Over the die cut bike I added some Scrapmatts sayings that I really adore and they fit this project a lot.

Scrapmatts products used:
Chains 01 CB5132
Assorted words 28 CB6115
Scrap words 32 CB6113
Ornate frame 09 CB6011
I hope that you liked my December projects and I inspired you a bit !

Masculine & Feminine - December Creations with Christine

Hello and Merry Christmas to all of our Scrapmatts followers.  Today I'm sharing a masculine and a feminine project using Scrapmatts chipboards and stencils.  Let's start off with a masculine layout:

Scrapmatts chipboards: Triangles (CB5157), Chains (CB1229)
Scrapmatts stencil: Splatter (ST5010)
I inked the chains chipboard for a rusty colored finish, going with the masculine colors of the layout.
I painted the awesome triangles chipboard brown and snuck it under the photo to create movement to the page.  For some light splatters, I've simply misted through the splatters stencil.
Next up is a feminine creation...a rock that is!
Scrapmatts chipboard: Assorted Words (CB6116)
Scrapmatts stencil: Cobblestones (ST5014)
I love the new words chipboards of Scrapmatts and for my "unique" rock, I simply painted the word chipboard white and added it on top of the rock.  It's only fitting for me to add texture with the cobblestones stencil, then I finished it off by adding layers of Tattered Angels paints.
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a very merry Christmas and an awesome 2017!  I thoroughly enjoyed creating with Scrapmatts and I hope you enjoyed this year's creations too.

Big Birthday Celebration Layouts

Hi everyone

Today I would like to share with you two layouts from my fabulous birthday lunch.  In August I turned the big 50. I didn't want a party but wanted to have a special lunch with my family.  My daughter now lives interstate so wanted her & her partner there to celebrate.  So on the Long Weekend in October we had a lovely family lunch at a very posh restaurant.  And you still have to get photos (we weren't the only ones!)
The first layout I did for a challenge. You had to use Black & Gold with one other colour - I chose Orange, it matched my dress!

To start this layout I used Gold texture paste through this stencil - love how it pops on the black cardstock.

ST5024 - Stencil Tile Pattern

I have then used lots of chipboard which I have inked in Brilliance Dew Drop Gold Ink available in the shop.

CB1241 Scrap Words 27

CB6105 Assorted Words 23
CB1209 Scrap Words 12

CB5092 - Flowers 10 (layered)

CB6109 - Lamps 11

My 2nd layout is also from our lunch.  I created this one for the current challenge at Show Us Your Stuff.

Again I started off using a stencil with some texture paste ST1028 - Stencil Flowers

Again I have inked the chipboard.

CB1003 - Flourishes 04

CB1229 - Chains 04 

CB1060 - Ornate Frames 17

CB6112 - Scrap Words 31

CB1134 - Assorted Words 01

I hope these layouts have inspired you. I know I had a lot of fun creating them.

I know this is a very busy time of year, but hopefully you can take some time for yourself
and do something creative.

I wish you all a very happy and safe Christmas.
