September Scrapbooking with Christine

Happy Spring to our Scrapmatts followers.  I hope you had a great weekend and have not forgotten daylight savings.  It's my turn this month to share some Scrapmatts creations, and for this month I have a couple of layouts to show you.  Let's start with an oriental layout:


Scrapmatts chipboards: Roses (CB1202), Butterflies CB1045), Black Scrap Words (CB6112)

Scrapmatts Stencil: String (ST1021)


I've added some red ink to the Strings Stencil and stamped it onto the background.  The chipboards are inked to complement the page.  The Black Scrap Words are then added for the title and sentiment.  I just love this gorgeous photo of my girls, niece, and nephew wearing kimonos and a ninja outfit altogether straight out from Japan.

Next up is my Distress Ink layout with a hint of grunge:


Scrapmatts chipboards: Hexagon Mesh (CB5124)

Scrapmatts Stencil: Hexagons (9002)


I've added some hexagons to the background with the awesome A4 Haxagons Stencil.  For the Hexagon Mesh Chipboards, I subtly added some rusty inking and added them areound the cluster.  This has to be one of the cutest pose of my youngest daughter that I have scrapped by far...tutus, fairy wings and all.

Thanks for popping in and I hope I've inspired you to create with Scrapmatts' chipboards and stencils.  Keep an eye out for the team's inspiring creations and check out all the Scrapmatts range HERE: http://papertoleaustralia.com/

Cheers,

Don't blink, Christmas will here

Hi, Fi here today sharing with you some Christmas Cards and a Bauble.  I know it seems a little early, however I seem to always leave it so late that I never get them sent,  no excuse now!

First up I've decorated one of the larger chipboard baubles., along with words and the tiny little stars.



Love the cute little embossed Christmas tags


On this one I've used the Holly along with the Merry Christmas chip boards.



And lastly I finished this card with one of the lovely little Christmas tree chip boards.




Here are just some of the products I have used.  





Thanks for stopping by,
Hope I've inspired you to create some lovely cards this year for Christmas.

Smile with Rikki Graziani

Good morning how are you? Rikki here today with some new layouts for course featuring the awesome Scrapmatts Chipboard. I have been busy working away and I cant believe we are in September already !!!! 



A handy tip when you have frames that you want to show two sides of, just cut them in half that way they extend around the photo your working with...




CB4069 Ornate Frames 26



CB6117 Assorted Words 30

September with Lisette

 Hi everyone, I know we always say it but boy its busy in my house at the moment.

We had the end of the netball season with the grand final last weekend - unfortunately DD's team lost. I am on the executive of the association so this is a very big time of year for us.

This Friday night we have having her 21st at home.  I almost forgot about my post!

Have just put a couple of slices in the oven, so time to sit down and let you know what I have been creating.  I know that this time of year is really busy for me so I have prepared some layouts earlier!! (always wanted to say that)

The theme for 123 Challenge this month is A sketch, words - Love Always and 3 colours - Denim, Sky Blue & Sand.  Here is my layout -






I love the simplicity of this layout, and I haven't used a stencil as a background!

Products used:-













CB5142 Retrosquares 02








CB1159 Hearts 05


CB6116 Assorted Words 29


CB6095 Assorted Words 18



This was my DT layout for the August 123 Challenge.

I have used









CB1209 Scrap Words 12


CB6105 Assorted Words 23


CB5123 Chains 01


CB4060 Ornate Frames 16 - I have used the horizontal pieces as well as the negative from the inner circle.

Hope you have enjoyed my layouts and they have inspired you.
I did get the slices out of the oven in the middle of this post.
I think I need to do some more scrapping!!!

Until October

September with Helen

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

First I'm sharing a layout about a newborn baby meeting her Daddy.
The photo was slightly out of focus, but too precious to discard, so I added a watercolour filter, to blend in with the ombre background paper.
All the papers are from the  Kaisercraft collection, "Indigo Blue." 
The flair is from Studio Fourteen 40.
The puffy clouds is from Amy Tangerine "Cute overload".
I'm not sure where I got the spotty flair, apart from the bottom of my stash, maybe G45?
I left all the chipboard bare apart from the heart which I wet embossed with 
Stampendous "aged Taupe."

Scrapmatts products used:-
CB1229 Chains 02
CB1071 Hearts
CB5142 Retro Squares
CB6112 Scrap words 31
Heart Stencil

I based my layout on a sketch by Laura Whitaker.



Next up is an older photo from a Christmas 2014.
Still stash busting, I've used scraps of older papers to make the red and patterned trees;
then combined them with a new Kaisercraft Christmas collection "Letters to Santa",
for the green tree and green mat.  I think that the gorgeous
 Scrapmatts products have added a touch of festivity and sparkle.
I used various water colours and Tim Holtz Oxides to paint the Holly leaves.
The Believe title, the Frame and the stencilling was done with Nuvo Mousse. 
Scrapmatts products used:-
CB5163 Holly leaves Holly 04
CB 6111 Assorted Words 27
CB6093 Ornate Frames
ST 1037 Bling
ST5041 Stars

I based my page on a sketch by Laura Whitaker
