June Layouts with Lisette

Hi everyone

Lisette here with my layouts for June.

My husband turned 60 in January this year.  Due to the up and down Covid restrictions in Sydney at that time, the celebrations seemed to go on for months.  We did have a fabulous lunch with the family and a lovely restaurant near the water.  My two layouts for today are from this lunch.

Once again I have combined Scrapmatts stencils and chipboard with a flair from Just Add Flair and hearts from Charms Creations.  Love using embellishments from small Aussie companies.

June Crafting with Kim



Kim here with you today, to share of few layouts I have created using some beautiful Scrapmatts products.

At the beginning of June I was invited to teach a scrapbooking class, alongside the beautiful and very talented Rachael Funnell at Joy's Paperwork in Young, NSW.

Annette Edmonds and I set off bright and early... (actually it was very foggy, but it was early!)

We had a lovely group of ladies and may I just say they created some beautiful layouts!

Let me show you the layout I created for this class.

[Choose Your Own Adventure]

This is my daughter Madison and her fiance Jake.
For this layout we did some layering, stencilling, fussy cutting, distressing and splattering.
It was a real pleasure watching their layouts come together and it's always nice getting together with like minded souls. 

Below is the layout Annette created. Annette and I craft together every other weekend and often have crafty adventures. Annette is one very special lady and I thank her for her friendship and support! 

    We seen some awesome work by the ladies who attended the day. One of the ladies actually used a                              photo of a truck for this layout and you know what? It looked absolutely amazing!!!

June Creating with Lizzy.

 Hello there..

 Today it is my turn to share with you some creating using the fabulous Scrapmatts products.

I have a layout that I created using a family photo.. It is difficult to get everyone together these days so this was a special moment worth scrapping..

As I usually do I started with laying down some scraps and tags to add some texture to my page.

Sometimes I use bits that are sitting on my desk.. and whatever will make some texture.

 I then covered the scraps with a light layer of gesso and then used a stencil for added texture. A spray of mist and then I began to create my layout..

I used a wonderful tree chipboard that I painted with a green and dotted it with brown to add a bit of age to the trunk and branches.. How cool does the branches look against the texture!!?

I used lots of layers to add some dimension to lift my photo and I added a film strip that I cut in half under these layers. The assorted Words were perfect for my title.

Family Time.

Somehow that tree makes me think of "family Trees" I love the way it looks on my layout. .a lovely feature on my page..

and here is a list of the SCRAPMATTS that I have used on my layout.

ST5047 Lattice Stencil 

CB4035 Tree 01

CB1233 Film Strips

CB6101 Assorted Words

I hope I have inspired you to think about your Family Tree!! and maybe scrap those family moments!

Thanks for visiting today and make sure you pop back to see what the other Designers are up to!

Until Next time

Happy Scrapmatting!

From the Beach to the Bush

 Hello again all my lovelies.

As the title of this post states my pages this month are beach and bush.

First up are my gorgeous great nieces and nephew having fun at the beach. 

I created this page at the Scrapmatts Retreat at Neville, if you think you have stress in your life, just try doing this under the watchful eye of Andrew and Sofie, phew, seriously though Sofie had some great insights and advice which gave this page that little bit extra to make it pop. Especially placing some muslin underneath the tore layers of paper.

Wanting this to be bit and colorful, like an aquarium, I used a lot of different mediums from metallic paints, markers and splashes of white paint.

With the stencil I inked through it with a blue/grey ink to give the impression of waves, I think that it turned out pretty good.




The next is a real Australiana page incorporating some really awesome themed chipboard.
With these pieces I just used a couple of different shades of green ink as well as markers, the title was already black which was just perfect for the page. Also used was some great corrugated cardboard that I roughly tore and then inked.



So there we are for this month, two very different pages celebrating our great outdoors. 
Until next month.

Hugs and Love

Layering and Fussy Cutting with Heather

Good morning This month again I have done some more fussy cutting, I love my fussy cutting. I have used this very pretty paper range from Mintay. I started by adding some of the leaves from the layered roses and leaves stencil using some cream paste so that they are a soft background. The chipboard is CB1018 Card Borders 01, and I have just very simply given them a very light layer of white paint, almost white washed. They layout is made of up of layers of frames, and fussy cut flowers, vases and birds, then the chipboard is tucked in as an accent.
Please forgive the shadow, I have started a new job and I have taken the photo at a really bad time.
These are the Scrapmatts products that I have used:
Thank you again for spending time with me again this month Heather
