August inspiration with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my July inspirational post.
Today I am going to share a double pocket scrapbooking page, a card and a tag all made in totally different styles, but each an every one has Scrapmatts gorgeous products all over.
The first project  is  totally different one  for me: Pocket scrapbooking double page spread.
I am not a big fan of Project Life kind of scrapbooking as this is totally flat kind of crafting.
But as  always try to make something different as much as I can I decided to make double page with 8*8'' pockets and I really love the result and the easy life of such kind of crafting.
So here are both pages made with new Natures spirit Scrapberry's collection.
The only thing that was added to those pages other than paper and some metal pieces were Scrapmatts chipboards as I had to add some interest to those so flat pockets and those chippies are just the perfect add- on to flat pages.

Here is the first side of the double pager:

 And this is the second side of it and I am sorry for the pretty bad photos , but it's totally impossible the get great photos inside the plastic pockets.

 And now for some close- ups to the parts of the layouts.
As you can see I added a lot of Scrapberry's charms to the project as they are gorgeous and still flat pieces.

 And here is my recycling trick: use the collection name as a part of your project.
Nature spirit is just the collection name I cut and used over the photo title.

Metal flairs are also very good embellishments for flat pocket pages.

Some resin pieces can be added to the pages if those are flat piece.

Scrapmatts products used :
Scrap words 22 CB1236
Grass 02 CB5100
Assorted words 02 CB1136
Nautical Designs 04 CB1221
String circles 07 CB4071
Ornate frames 22 CB1220

 As my second project I made a set of 4 ATC grungy/Steampunk cards.
ATC cards are fun and I really love to make them.
So those  small grungy cards I made with delicious Scrapmatts stencils and chipboards.

Backgrounds were made with texture paste, stencils (Scrapmatts), embossing powders, stamping (BoBunny), heat embossing and misting.You can see the full Scrapmatts product list at the end of this post.
Then I added chipboards (Scrapmatts) painted with acylics (Pentart) and clay casted pieces. Everything was painted again over and over with Pentart paints. Crackle paste was added over some pieces and Scrapmatts words were glued to make it count as real ATC cards.
Here are all ATC shown one by one. Each and every ATC card got the chipboard Scrapmatts saying to make it full of meaning.
