All About Harrison - Lauren Tomecek

This is one of my favourite photographs of Harrison. I just snapped it while he was playing on the lawn next to me as I hung out the washing but his smile is perfect and the colours really pop. I couldn't wait to be able to scrapbook it and I'm really happy with the end result of this layout.
I used the new string circles (CB5139 String Circles 03) in the background and the 'man' part of the title from CB4055 Assorted Words 09.
My second layout also features some photos of Harrison, this time from his newborn photo shoot. I have kept the embellishments relatively light as I wanted the focus to be on the beautiful photos. There is some chipboard from CB5135 Baby Boy 01, CB1166 Cupids 01, CB5101 Flags 02 and CB1200 Scrap Words 08.

'Dreams Do Come True' by Kim

Hello friends of Scrapmatts!

Kim here to share a layout and a couple of cards I've created of late!

Last month I was invited to teach a scrapbooking class over in 
The day was organized by the lovely Cheryl O'Brien & Merrilyn Jackson.
We had a fun filled day creating 2 layouts, one by the talented Wendy Bennett and one by me of course. We also created beautiful handmade flowers, instructed by the
fun filled Annette Edmonds!!

Here is my layout created for the day.

 [Dreams Do Come True]
This is my middle girl, Madison. When she was a little girl all she wanted to be was a mermaid...she was able to dress like one for her sister's 21st birthday party earlier this year. She spent hours gluing shells to her mermaid bra...which turned out beautiful! We also created a lovely tail (sorry you can't see this in my pic...maybe on a future layout!?)

 I have used the awesome 
on this layout and love the effect!

Here are the stunning flowers we also made on the day!
(Mine were made by the AMAZING Annette Edmonds)

Today I also wish to share a couple of cards I whipped up over the weekend using the 
(love adding this to cards)

On this card I have used
I kept the design very simple & elegant.

I do hope you have enjoyed looking at my creations?

LOVE - By Crece

Hello everyone, Crece here with you today to share with you a project I created using the new Scrapmatts Art Frames.

I have used a few different Scrapmatts chipboard pieces on this project.

The flourish in the bottom right hand corner is from the Leaf Spray 13 CB4063….pack. I used Gold embossing powder to cover the chipboard to make it stand out.

In the the ‘L’ square I have used the tiny edges from the pack Ornate Frames 22 CB1220. I also added the butterfly from the pack Butterflies 15 CB1015 to the top left hand corner, these were also embossed with Gold embossing powder

In the ‘V’ I have used the word ‘Cherish’ which comes from the pack Scrapwords 07 CB1199

Thanks for stopping by, make sure you check out the other creations by the Scrapmatts design team over in the Scrapmatts Gallery.

A little bit of Vintage & Modern Pop with Tracey Fowler

Hi All
The weather has been cooler, the boys are on school holidays and I have been playing with some fabulous Scrapmatts Chipboard.  I have created two very different layouts. One has a Modern Pop feel and the other is more vintage.

  I just love these new scrapwords CB6103 Scrap Words!
I have heat embossed the coral from CB4067 Marine Life 02 using Stampendous Aged Emerald Embossing powder and used glitter to cover the star fish.
The circle words are a perfect addition to any layout. CB6106 Assorted Words.
I have coloured the CB5140 String Circles 04 using gelatos and then blended the two colours with water.

I have created a more "Vintage" layout using the gorgeous Scrapmatts CB6109 Lamps 11 ,CB6103 Scrap Words and a staple in my Scrapmatts collection CB4008 Butterflies.
 These gorgeous lamps make a fabulous addition to any layout and work really well with patterned and printed papers.
Thanks for stopping by. Make sure you add your creations to the Scrapmatts Gallery  so we can see what you have been making with all the gorgeous Scrapmatts Chipboard.

Vintage playing

I must be in a vintage mood this month and all tones of brown, gold and bronze were the main colours for playing with my Scrapmatts chipboard :)
Andrew and Sofie released a gorgeous new background frame at the Brisbane Expo and I couldn't wait to have a play - the intertwined squares are just fabulous!
Scrapmatts products used: Retro Squares CB5141, Scrap Words 21 CB6103, Lamps 11 CB6109, Mini Frames 02 CB5032 along with Scrapmatts Charms Filigree Flower #16 CH076

Now this layout got me in the vintage mood so the next play had to be with some vintage tags! I love mixing the gorgeous Scrapmatts Ornate Frame with some vintage images. All the frames have been embossed with a Vintage gold embossing powder:
Using Scrapmatts Chipboard Tags CB3009, ATC Rounded ATC10-008, Ornate Frames CB4066, Ornate Toppers CB5137, Scrap Words CB1191, Diamond Mesh CB5125, Feathers CB5116 along with Scrapmatts charms Filigree Flower #16 CH076, Lock #2 CH019 and Filigree Flower #10 CH070

For added dimension to the tags, I added an ATC under each of the frames.

I think it must be the cold weather that had me wanting to playing with such rich and warm colours! Mind you when it's all wet and cold outside, there's nothing better than getting out the scrappy stash and having a play :)
Happy scrapping!
