December creating with Lizzy.

Hello there,
I hope your day is going really well..  It is just crazy how quickly the weeks are flying by!! Are you getting ready for Christmas? I have lots to do... but first... some things I have created using wonderful SCRAPMATTS products!

Firstly I have some masculine cards I have created using some fabulous Gears CB1072 01 which I have layered on my card..
I have used two ink pads a brown and a black, any brand would work, and colored the gears to give them an aged look.. I have also cut them in half and popped them under the paper layers.  For the sentiment  I have used a piece from CB1244 SCRAP WORDS 30 and also added some ink around the edges with the inks. I have also used a chain CB1229 CHAINS 02 also inked for an aged look..
My second card is quite similar using a selection of GEARS CB1075 03 on my card..

I love the Gears from Scrapmatts and there is quite a lot to choose from too!

I have a layout I would like to share with you using some glorious frosty colors with a festive feel.  I have used some simply gorgeous chipboard pieces that I have covered with Kindy Glitz for a sparkley finish.

I love the script words with all the swirls! Here is a closer view..

Can you see the stencilling on the back ground using the Stencil Circles and the Snowflakes? And I must admit I adore the stars too... sigh..

And beside the star is a lovely layered  poinsettia colored with water colors and black gel pen to add details.

And in the mean time, I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year...


  1. Superb creating Lizzy, in a variety of styles and colours. Love the grungy masculine cards, the fresh, sparkly look of the "Believe" page. I'm a big fan of those words and the Christmas cards in the traditional colours are inspiring too. It's been great fun being "teamies" throughout the year. Have a Happy Christmas and safe Christmas, with those you love.

  2. Wow! Lizzy you have been busy!
