Just some Christmas Inspiration

Hello, its been a little while

I have missed my monthly post due to travelling but I'm  happy to be back and sharing my projects.

What better way to start of the year with some Christmas Layouts, for some reason we all seem to neglect these until Christmas closes in on us again, but hopefully I can inspire you to get some of those new photo's up and onto pages.

Some close ups of the Scrapmats chipboard that I have used, I like the raw look of the chippies and with a couple of swipes of ink and some embellishing you can jazz these little pieces up.

On this next page I have used both Kaiser and Mintay papers, loved the colour way of the Kaiser paper and the Mintay has so many beautiful cutouts.

                              On this layout you can see how lovely you can jazz the chipboard up
                                                         using your mixed media products.

                 Love the delicate pine spray chippies, perfectly for adding depth to your layering.

On the hanging baubles I have used the Stampendous aged embossing powder, it really jazzes these chippies up.

Well that is all from me this month, hope you've been inspired and don't forget to check out the store and grab yourself some gorgeous Australian Made chipboard.

                           I have linked all the products below to the website for easy purchasing.

Thanks for stopping by.

I've Got Adventure in My Soul

I've Got Adventure in My Soul

Good morning beautiful followers. I hope you are all having a fantastic day.

Today I am sharing a layout with you that I completed yesterday. 
My apologies I only have the one but I have been away on holidays and then back to work, leaving little time to create.

I have decided to use the CSI Case File No 275 for this layout.
I was inspired by the desktop screen and the watercolour screen saver and the colours in the wall hangings.

I've Got Adventure in my Soul

To create this layout I have used the Blessed collection from Kaisercraft.

 I have used oxide inks and water to create the background, to give the watercolour effect.

To create the clusters, I used a combination of flowers, collectables, bling and chipboard from Scrapmatts

I am loving the new titles from Scrapmatts, one of which I have used for my title. 
To colour it, I used a gold sparkle wink of stella pen.

Here are the list of items used to create this layout.

Thanks for stopping by and please check out the Scrapmatts website

There are some great new titles suitable for all your scrapbooking needs.

Hi all

This month I tried to do something slightly more modern to match this beautiful photo of my niece - but I think I still eneded up more vintage

I had fun with texture paste and Scrapmatts stencils in the background of the layout, and layered the beautiful Prima papers and flowers  in amongst the Scrapmatts chipboard

To make the below card I used the pieces that I had left from the layout, this included some pieces of flowers that I had pulled apart. I tried to make it match the layout by making the Scrapmatts chipboard frame the focal piece

These are the Scrapmatts products that I have used for these projects:
