January inspiration with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my January Scrapmatts  inspiration.
This layout was made (as usual) with a photo of my beloved 3 years old grand daughter Netta and this time I stayed in this tri- color combo of yellow, light green and grey.
I used Scrapberry's The art of Nature collection to scrap our family natural art aka  this lovely little girl who makes us so happy.
The background was made in a light Mixed Media style with some background stamping, using  one single Scrapmatts Sticks stencil and white acrylic paint.
Lots of pieces were hand cut from the patterned cardstock, mostly leaves, flowers and some birds too and glued with 3d foam glue for dimension.
I added  chipboards all over the layout (and under the pieces too), all heat embossed with black embossing powder to fit the colors of the page, but one flowers piece that was heat embossed with light green embossing powder and you can see it inside the flowers cluster.

Here you can see the arrow and the sticks piece (the same as the stencil).

Another arrow from the bottom and the circle around the photo can be seen here:

More close ups to the center of the page and the modern  title made of several chipboards.
You can also see that I added a flowers chipboard together with hand cut flowers and some fabric flowers all together and yes, you can combine different materials to make one  unique cluster of embellishments.

The sub title small cluster was added on the top of the page saying that beautiful moments last forever!

My other project for this month are two similar cards made with one paper collection, but with different Scrapmatts chipboards.
I made  the first card as " Home Sweet Home"/Just for you card and the second as Hello, Live life card.
Totally different meanings, but both cards are in the very same style and colors.
Here is the first card- the Hello one.
I made the die cut background and added the Hello chipboard heat embossed  with black powder using Assorted words 28 set. Than the Card Borders 03 piece was added under the  word and again, heat embossed with black powder.
The window  piece was heat embossed with Vanilla color powder and added under the word.
The last Scrapmatts touch was the Live life words on the corner.
So easy to make a great cards with just paper and some gorgeous Scrapmatts chipboard!

My second card was made with Diamond mesh as the  part of my background.
The house was heat embossed with blue embossing powder and I added the bottom sentiment  and the upper second sentiment to make it more interesting.

Here is a close up to the house and the bottom sentiment:

And another one to the upper sentiment:
