January Crafting with Christine

Happy 2018 Scrapmatts friends!  This month I've created a page and a tag with Scrapmatts goodies.  First up is a chipboard tag:

Scrapmatts materials: Large Chipboard Tag, ST1021 String Stencil

I painted the large chipboard tag and then layered some mediums.  For background texture I stenciled some paste through the String Stencil and worked from there until the chipboard tag is finished.

Next is a layout which I thoroughly enjoyed creating:

Scrapmatts materials: CB2023 Roses 01, Stencil 9002 Hexagons

Starting with a white cardstock, I painted different colors and then stenciled different hexagon sizes from the new Hexagon Stencil Set.  I then adhered the Roses chipboard beside the photo and built the cluster from there and viola!

Thanks for popping in and I hope you've been enjoying some awesome Scrapmatts inspiration from the team.  Enjoy the rest of your month and I'll be back for more Scrapmatts creating next month.

Check out all the yummy Scrapmatts range HERE.

Keepsakes & Traditions

Hi, Fi here today, sharing with you a KeepSakes Cylinder and Christmas Traditions page.

I don't know about everyone else, but I hate throwing away perfectly good packaging.  Not getting into the whole environment thingy but just the fact the packaging is so well made to keep those pesky thieves out.  My daughter purchased a new boom box on Boxing Day and I couldn't believe the strength in the packaging.  So I thought why not upcycle it and turn it into a Keepsake holder. 

As you can see I've used a few different Scrapmatts Chippies as well as some templates.
How many chipboard's can you find?

One of my favourite, Scrapmats chipboards are these little engraved tag/words.  I have gone through packets of these.  They look great with just a little inked edged or when you give then a coating like I've done here.

I also wanted to create a page, journalling our Christmas Traditions, we had a quiet Christmas this years as all our families are in other states.  However know matter where everyone is this is always what we do in our immediate family.

For the background I've used the Doily template along with a crackle medium, I have also used the Scrapmatts Christmas Tree & Baubles, which I must say a super cute.

From the closeups you can see that I have given all of the chippies some sort of mixed media coating.

Products Used:

I hope you enjoyed this months share.  If you are interested in any of the products I have linked all the product pics to the the website.  

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy New Year Everyone

I hope you have found time to be creative.
Today I would like to share with you my DT Layout.

These papers are perfect for all those road trips taken around our beautiful country.

 When I seen this range of papers I knew exactly which Scrapmatts Chipboard I would use.

They have the perfect set of Gum Leaves - CB5147

I have added them in with the collectables and inked them with Kaisercraft Bark Ink.

These are the Assorted Words 02

To colour them I have used the Bark Ink.

 The title of my page has been created with the 

I have slightly inked these for some colour with the bark ink.
