Let's Make Cards!!!!

Hello & Welcome back to another Scrapmatts post.

I hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday, I know I certainly am.

Today I'm sharing with you two sweet little card I've made.  These will be part of a kit I've been putting together for a group of ladies, so I hopefully they won't be snooping here before we head off in a couple of week..

 I love having the opportunity to work with Scrapmatts beautiful products, even their teeny tiny creations have so much intricate detail and they work beautifully with those little projects.

I have overlayed the With Love on top of my stamped quote.

From this angle shot you can you see the smaller part of the Rose Circles pieces that I have used giving them a lovely coating of Prima paint, really hard to get a good shot of how this paint transforms these pieces.

This card was created to look like a mini chalkboard using scraps from the kit I will be teach.
Again the small chipboard has worked beautifully.

I have used the Scrapmatts Words 26 and String Circles 02

 Loved how this fun little card turned out.

Well that is all from me this month, thanks for calling in and 
hope to see some your work in the Gallery.

Until next time, bye for now Fi!!!!

Something Girly .....

Good Afternoon, its been a very wintry 24 hrs in the West and I am loving, minus a lovely bug that has hit the house, which means cleaning the house like a crazy person with disinfectant but on the plus side of that that means the floors are now clean enough to eat off and that means no cleaning up over the weekend so that means more scrap time right?

Today I am sharing with you some girly inspired goodness all floral.... one with flowers and one with fussy cut flowers and how you can incorporate your Scrapmatts Chipboard within the two different styles....

ST1011 Stencil Borders

CB6117 Assorted Words 30

Dont be afraid to weave your fussy cut flowers over, under and throughout your framed chipboard.

CB4070 String Circles 06 Roses

Till next time have a creative day.

Boho Dreams

Boho Dreamcatcher.

Hello and Welcome
I hope your April has been a creative one.

This month I have created a dreamcatcher and a layout using Scrapmatts products.
Lets start with the Dreamcatcher.
I used the beautiful Indigo Skies range from Kaisercraft. 
I actually completed this Dreamcatcher for their challenge last month.

This is the front and back of my dream catcher.
Front View

The butterflies are cut from the Indigo Skies Paper Collection. I fussy cut them from the sheet.
Chipboard used is from Scrapmatts.
Flowers are from 49 and Market, Kaisercraft, Green Tara and my own stash.
The metal butterfly is from Finnabair.
Tags are from Kaisercraft's Off the Wall Collectables.
Polaroid frame is from Kmart's craft section.
The paint swatches are from Bunnings. I picked them up for another challenge but they worked perfectly as the background colour for my photo mat.

I am working on a process video for this project and I will load it to my blog as soon as its done.

 Precious Layout

I have used the new Sage and Grace from Kaisercraft.
The colours are so beautiful. 

 Here I have used the Roses CB2023 Stem and then I have embellished with the collectables and a Green Tara flower.
I have used versa ink Umber to colour the chipboard.

I have used the butterfly stencil here with some texture paste.
I have sprayed the layout with Tattered Angels Creme de Chocolat

 The word is from the Assorted words 07 - CB6071
I have coloured with the Umber ink.
I have stamped the layout with Pinecone ink using the Botanical stamp from Kaisercraft.

May layouts

Hi everyone
Lisette here with my layouts for May. Happy Mothers Day (I know I am a day early!)

 Again my layouts feature stencil work and the gorgeous Scrapmatts Chipboard.
I think this is definitely my style at the moment.  Love getting messy!
I met a creative friend for coffee recently and she was very impressed that
I still had paint and colour on my hands!

The first one is my Design Team layout for Show Us Your Stuff May Challenge.  The inspiration
 this month is a beautiful quote - 'There are so many beautiful reasons to be happy' 
together with some fun pictures.  Both my girls love Nutella and while we where
 at the Salamanca Markets in Hobart they shared a Nutella pancake.

I used lots of Scrapmatts chipboard as well as a stencil and a stencil with Colour Blast
 texture paste and shimmer dusts.

Product Used
 CB6117 - Assorted words 30 (happy) 
CB5166 - Leaf Spray 15
CB1071 - Hearts 04
ST1011 - Stencil Borders

Once again I completed a layout for a challenge and got the dates mixed up so missed the final submission date 😢.   I have used Colour Blast texture paste through a Scrapmatts stencil and then added some Scrapmatts Chipboard.  Love the colour of the water - so blue, clear and clean.

Products Used
CB6106 - Assorted Words 24 (look)
CB6105 - Assorted Words 23 (perfect)
CB4060 - Ornate Frames 17
CB2005 - Page Borders 5
ST1010 - Stencil Borders

I hope these layouts have inspired you to create with the wonderful products 
available at Scrapmatts.

Wishing all the mums a very happy Mothers Day, hopefully
you will get a chance to relax and do
some creating! (with Scrapmatts of course)

Until next month

Happy Scrapping

Scrapmatts May creating with Helen - a layout and a card

Hello and welcome back to Scrapmatts.
It's Helen with you today.

First I'm sharing a bath time layout; 
the bubbles stencil and chipboard seemed just right for this page. 
This little Bubba loved his bath. No matter what mood he was in before he hit the water, he instantly became angelic in the suds.
I used my favourite embossing powder on the wings and the string circle frame.
It's Aged Ivory from Stampendous.   The Bubble chipboard was just swiped with Gesso and I used Liquitex texture paste through the stencils.

Next up is a vintage style card
This is a tent style card, so that I could attach a ribbon at the top.
I decorated the inside as well. The paper is from Pion.
I inked the spray of Roses and added shine with Glossy Accents.
The ornate frame was wet embossed with Aged Ivory from Stampendous.
Scrapmatts products used:

 CB1202 Roses 02
CB1028 Butterflies 18

My May Creating!

Hello there, I hope this month of May has started well for you! And for all the Mums out there, I hope you get something special for Mothers day too..

I have a couple of creations I would like to share with you..  The first one is a card that I have embellished with  some lovely SCRAPMATTS chipboard.

 I did some paper pleating across the front of the card and placed a lovely Card Border 02 which I embossed in white on top of the pleats to hold the pleats in place.. I also embossed the Flowers 03 in pink and put a fabulous sparkly gem in the centre of each one..  And for the Sentiment I used the word Celebrate from the  Scrap Words 24.

Here are the products and a link to the shop.

You can see some more stencilling on the back ground using the Stencil Leaf Sprays which is quickly becoming a favorite of mine! I have also used some gorgeous Flowers 12 which I have painted using water colors ( paint with gesso first as a prima for the color..)
