ScrapMatts & Kraft Plus Challenge

Good Morning, I'm here today to share with you a few pages I have been creating for an 8"  mini album.  Its been awhile since I have gifted one of these and my preference is to give one that fits easily enough into protective sleeves so that it can be better preserved from acidic fingers.
Its also great for using up those little scraps you have lying around and perfect
 for those delicate little Scrapmatts pieces.
The first two pages I will be sharing with you today I have used the Scrapmats Roses CB1202 02. 
They work in beautifully with their delicateness however Rose is also the flower
attached to the babies name Ava!

Here is something you might not have know either, from one 12" page after cutting you have enough paper to make the opposing page.  Depending on how the pattern runs, which is great as you're not left with heap of more scraps!

I also use my Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities to crate the decorative background circle, as well as some really old Making Memories felt stickers that I have jazzed up with some kindy glitz.

The Scrapmatts engraved words and sayings used have just been given a slight inking around the edges to make them pop and the roses have been inked and heat embossed with some Zing embossing powder.

I also had a chance to play along with this challenge, although my page is a little small to put a heap of tassels on it.  Also because this is gift I wanted to keep it someone what simple.
My background I've used is a Bazzill Basics Kraft paper that has embossed with gold.
I have used a couple of mask to layer the background with before adding my papers.
Above you can see I have created a little silver and clear bead tassle, delicate enough to work beautifully in with the size of this page.

These two pages will be for photos of Ava and her Uncles!

Here I had to get a little creative with these gorgeous Melissa Francis glitter chippies as they never seem to come with enough letters.  So with some cutting I was able to make an E & S as well as in the page above I had to use the H to create an A.  I have also used a cute  little Funky Flair as a balloon for this adorable Memory Box stitched die cut that I cut out.

Maya Mist - White out
Prima - Emerald Color Bloom mist, Heaven Sent Collection
Crafters Workshop Templates - Mini Love Heart
Making Memories - Ribbon words, alphabets
