Two layouts

Hi there! I'd like to show you two layouts I made with Scrapmatts chipboards

First, a pink and green page with lots of pretty chippies painted in green

I used CB4060 Ornate Frames 17, MC1028 Micro Chips 20 and CB6097 Assorted Words 19  

And the second page, with green and yellow tones and those gorgeous chipboard flourishes as the main embellishment

Here I used CB4063 Leaf Spray 13 and CB4028 Lamp Posts 07

'Eternal moments

Hello and Welcome!
Wishing You a 'Merry Christmas' and I hope you enjoy New Year's Eve - celebrate and may 2015 be full of wonderful things and happiness.
Today I'm sharing a layout I made of my youngest son Connaugh. He was 3 yrs old here and is now 8, so this photo has waited a long time to be scrapped !
'Eternal moments'

Scrapmatts gorgeous Chipboard used:
CB1200 Scrapwords 08
CB5089 Ferns 02

 Other products: 7 Dots studio - Destination Unknown Paper, Manor House flowers and Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays.
I decided to play with the colour purple, it's one of my favourite colours yet one I use so little of.
So my New Years resolution is to use more colours I'm scared to use.  Set yourself a resolution for 2015 that will challenge you in your scrapping...... as you might just find something new you love.
 Thanks for dropping by....see you again soon. G!

First Christmas Photo and Some Cards

Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate the holiday. Continuing on with the Christmas fun the other DT members have been sharing, here is a layout featuring Harrison's first Santa photo! Harrison is very social at the moment and just likes being around people so he really wasn't too fussed by meeting Santa.
While my cards below use older Christmas releases, this layout features two new release chipboard packs from Scrapmatts: CB1228 Christmas Ornaments 14 and CB1224 Holly 03. The Christmas tree charm in the top right is also from Scrapmatts (CH041 Christmas Trees #1).
I find cards are a great way to use up paper scraps and I have so many different bits of Christmas papers lying around, so my second project is a set of three Christmas cards which have a 'Peace' theme.
The Christmas tree on this card came pre-coloured in the green which made the whole card come together very quickly. I have used CB6079 Assorted Words 11 and CB6082 Christmas Trees 04.

My second card uses one of my favourite chipboard packs (CB1096 Reindeers 05) and CB1108 Words 24 Peace. Using gold embossing powder on chipboard is quick, easy and effective.

Christmas Joy

Good afternoon, Crece here with you today on teh blog...Not too many sleeps to go till the Jolly man in a Red suit comes to I thought I would sahre with you one final Christmas piece I have created featuring some Scrapmatts Chipboard and Charms.

 JOY doorknob Hanging

The base of this doorknob hanging started with some Scrapmatts ATC shapes

ATC10-010 Bracket 01

After applying some tissue paper, dylusions and Inka Gold (silver) I came up with the awesome  background..

below is a close up of the 'J'

I heat embossed the charms using some silver embossing powder. The 'J' was coloured using some Inka Gold (Turquoise)
I decided to put some Muslin under the charm to soften the look.
To finish off, in the top right hand corner I added some Holly and used some Sticky bling for the berries.

The same process was followed for the rest ... 'O' and 'Y'.

I made holes in the middle of each ATC so I could thread some silver ribbon through and make a loop so this could hang off a doorknob. 

Scrapmatts Items used for this project...

Thanks for stopping by and having a look. The DT love to see what you create using Scrapmatts items, so please upload your project to our gallery...and while you are there have a look at some amazing inspiration from the team.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2015 xxx

Off the Page

Hello December,

Only 15 days left until Christmas. Are you organised? I'm not.

But I have been keeping up with my December Daily... although to be honest I prefer to take some of the pressure out of it and don't necessarily do a daily page if nothing interesting has happened and my December has been quite uneventful this year, with the exception of a certain little miss turning 2.

Here are my mini tag album pages so far:

As I have committed to a handmade Christmas this year, unfortunately most of my DIY time otherwise has been going to non scrapbooking related craftiness however I realised I never shared a particular creation back a while ago that is pretty special to me.
In 2013 I submitted an entry to the Scrapbooking Memories masters competition. I didn't have any expectations but was pretty stoked to get an honourable mention on my calendar item.
As you can see below, it was created using a recycled tin suitcase with recycled cardboard calendar cards that clip on the front. I love how it turned out so it was lovely to have it featured in the honourable mention section for 2013.

As you can see, there is lots of Scrapmatts goodness on it, including each calendar card and around the suitcase.
Anyway, wishing you all a very merry Christmas and safe holiday period this December.
Holly x
