notebook by Elena Smoktunova

Hello friends! 
I will show you beautiful notebook! Made completely from scratch. The A6 size, in it 120 sheets which are made old in coffee. On a cover there is a lot of wonderful chipboard! I have painted with chipboard

 I like to do notebooks, to sew the block, with the made old pages. I like to do the works multilayered. I always with it am helped and safely chipboards look on them! As I already spoke, any my work doesn't do without my favourite chipboard! Look what choice of chipboard! For every taste, for any work! Here, in my summer notebook I used roses, branches, feathers.

  The back of a notebook is also decorated by chipboard


    I used:

                                                                    CB1222 Feathers 02

                                                                  CB5166 Leaf Spray 15

Have a nice day!

May Creating with Christine

Hi everyone.  I hope you've had a great month so far.  Today I'm excited to share with you my layout with lots of Scrapmatts chipboards and stencil.  I've incorporated my favourite color combination of blues and greens.  Here's my "Proud Mommy" layout:
Scrapmatts chipboards: Floral Spray (CB5052), Black Scrap Words 05 (CB1197), Leaves (CB1115), Black Scrap Words 32 (CB6113), Leaf Spray (CB5166)
Scrapmatts Stencil: Squares (ST5020)
I stenciled some black texture paste through the awesome Squares Stencil for my backround. 
For the chipboards, I painted them white then added some pearl pigment for a subtle shimmery finish, except for the Black Scrap Words which I've used as is.
Thanks for popping in and I hope you enjoyed my post today.  Enjoy your weekend and do check out more Scrapmatts goodies HERE.

May Inspiration with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Scrapmatts May inspiration!
My first project, almost as always, is a scrapbooking classic layout.
I used DCVW cardstock from the pretty monochromatic collection and add a lot of chipboards to add more interest to the flat colors of the layout.
As almost always- my dear 3 years old grand daughter Neta is a star of my scrapbooking.

So as you see I made the modern title with Scrapmatts chipboards painted into black.

The main embellishment cluster was made with background chipboards painted with  gold paint and some hand made paper flowers.
 I added a bird bath and two chipboard birds to this cluster too.

 And the half circles were  added under the twine " banner" to make the white space less " white".

 Scrapmatts products used:
Birdbaths 03 CB1203
Leaf spray 15 CB516
Assorted words 28 CB6115
Arrows 01 CB5107
String circles 07 CB4071
 My second project today is a fancy Wedding card made with stamps, die and a lot of Scrapmatts chipboards.

 This new wedding card was made with Prickley pear stamps,Papericious cardstock and lovely Scrapmatts chipboards.
I stamped the dancing pair image with black pigmented ink and heat embossed it  with clear embossing powder.
Then it was hand cut and glued over the  arranged paper layers.
The small sentiment was stamped on the bottom of the card.
The die cut heart was stamped and then die cut with PPRS die and glued near the main image.
The chipboard oval frame was painted with white acrylic and red glitter was randomly added over the frame.
The swirl and  the Love arrow were painted with black acrylic paint and added over the frame.
Small " Party time" chipboard was added on the top and small, white painted scroll was added under the stamped sentiment.

 Scrapmatts products used:
Flourishes 02 CB1001
Men's accessories 01 CB1201
Ornate toppers 01 CB5137
Assorted words 23 CB6105
Ornate frame 19 CB091

My second card is in a totally different style- shabby, with flowers and in pastel colors.

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my water color card inspiration!
Today we were challenged to make some water color project and I made a card full of foamiran stamped and die cut flowers colored with water colors and added some painted Scrapmatts frame and leaves to my flower bouquet.

Let's Make Cards!!!!

Hello & Welcome back to another Scrapmatts post.

I hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday, I know I certainly am.

Today I'm sharing with you two sweet little card I've made.  These will be part of a kit I've been putting together for a group of ladies, so I hopefully they won't be snooping here before we head off in a couple of week..

 I love having the opportunity to work with Scrapmatts beautiful products, even their teeny tiny creations have so much intricate detail and they work beautifully with those little projects.

I have overlayed the With Love on top of my stamped quote.

From this angle shot you can you see the smaller part of the Rose Circles pieces that I have used giving them a lovely coating of Prima paint, really hard to get a good shot of how this paint transforms these pieces.

This card was created to look like a mini chalkboard using scraps from the kit I will be teach.
Again the small chipboard has worked beautifully.

I have used the Scrapmatts Words 26 and String Circles 02

 Loved how this fun little card turned out.

Well that is all from me this month, thanks for calling in and 
hope to see some your work in the Gallery.

Until next time, bye for now Fi!!!!

Something Girly .....

Good Afternoon, its been a very wintry 24 hrs in the West and I am loving, minus a lovely bug that has hit the house, which means cleaning the house like a crazy person with disinfectant but on the plus side of that that means the floors are now clean enough to eat off and that means no cleaning up over the weekend so that means more scrap time right?

Today I am sharing with you some girly inspired goodness all floral.... one with flowers and one with fussy cut flowers and how you can incorporate your Scrapmatts Chipboard within the two different styles....

ST1011 Stencil Borders

CB6117 Assorted Words 30

Dont be afraid to weave your fussy cut flowers over, under and throughout your framed chipboard.

CB4070 String Circles 06 Roses

Till next time have a creative day.

The metal butterfly is from Finnabair.
