Two layouts for April

Hi everyone and welcome to my April post.

This month I set the challenge over at Show Us Your Stuff challenge blog and the beautiful Sofie and Andrew here at Scrapmatts are sponsoring it.

I chose the theme to be  "Its all about me".  As scrapbookers we don't usually feature ourselves, this is the time to do so.  Pop on over and have a look at the Design Team's layouts and you can see how varied they are.

I have used lots of my favourite embellishment on this layouts and they are all from local Australian companies and handmade businesses.

 As usual I started with a stencil or two and used Colour Blast Paste and shimmer pots to create my background.  I matted my photo with Red cardstock and then used Coco Vanilla papers, stickers and words.  I added a heart, a flair and flowers.

That is not all I used!  There are quite a few Scrapmatts Chipboard pieces.  The swirl, tag, frame and word pieces have all be altered with Colour Blast Shimmer colour and embossing powders.

Products used:-

Stencil 9002 Hexagons

Stencil 9005 Cracks

CB6113 Scrap Words 32

CB1209 Scrap Words 12

CB6116 Assorted Words 29

CB4069 Ornate Frames 26

CB6110 Ornate Frames 25

I am also on the Design team at Scrapbook Top 50.  Here is my layout for this months challenge.

Again I started with Stencils for my background, matted and layered some pattern papers behind my photo and embellished.

Products used:-

Stencil 9002 Hexagons (in A4)

CB6106 Assorted Words 24
