Funky Flairs

Hi & Welcome

Well the count down is on, exactly 16 more sleep and the big fella will be here!!!!  

This past month or so has been super hectic for our family, with a quick trip to Perth for my Grandfather's 90th, my daughter buying her first home and all that comes with it as well as the everyday life we have to deal with, its hard to take the time out to do what we love the most.

With that said, I finally had time to put my tree up, Ive never misssed getting it up on the 1st unitl this year!!!  :( None the less its up with a few new decorations that I was fortunate enough to find in David Jones as well as making some of my own this year.

Using the lovely Christmas Funky Flairs Ive made two Christmas Baubles as well as a Santa's hat Christmas Card.   Hope you enjoy checking them out as much as I enjoyed making them.

Scrapmatts Triple Treat Event

Well its been an absolute whirlwind of a day, I met the lovely Sofia and Andrew the owners of Scrapmatts.  I have been on the Design Team for 6 months now,  and it was so great to meet these two.  They work so hard to bring us such amazing and inspirational products to work with and they are an all Australian Company, cheers to that I say!!!!

Alison Bevis is the organiser of this event and you can see a lot of work goes into the whole day, from the gift bags to the food and Im sure everyone who attended appreciates all the little details and the prizes won. I saw lots of great goodies being handed out as prizes.  Thanks so much for inviting me to teach, I thoroughly enjoyed meeting so many new people as well as getting to meet in person so many people that you see around the traps on blogger and facebook.

I was also lucky enough to use a few of the new products that Scrapmatts have just released on my page and I saw quite a few ladies purchase some extra ones, looks like they were a hit.   Everyone did a great job with the time allocated and I tried to make sure that I spoke to each and every attendee, I might not remember everyonés name but thank you for making my day enjoyeable.

Christmas Magic

The background was a little bit of a challenge, we used white cardstock along with dry embossing for texture and added gesso and texture paste.  Once dry we have added shimmer dust in Candy & Lush from Colour Blast.  It really was when the fun;started happen, well at least it was for me!!!!

Here are some close ups, you can see the lovely Scrapmatts Christmas Ornaments. I love that they are already coloured so its just a matter of gluing them on.  For some added detail I have used som red prima wire thread.  

Here you can see the Scrapmatts String Circle Holly, firstly we painted it with gesso, followed by the glimmer dust and for extra detail Christmas stamps were used.

Included in the kit was enough product to create the flower sprays, along with the matting papers, stamped straw and hand cut die leaves.  It was possibly an all day class but we all managed to squeeze the bulk of it into 2 hours without feeling to pressured. 

All the Scrapmatts product can be purchased dirctly from their website.

Thanks for stopping by, Im sure I won't be getting to many more posts done before Christmas, so I will wish everyone now a safe and happy one!!!

Those that asked about my Scrapbooking website, unfortunately it crashed so until I get a new one organised you can find me over here on my Facebook page!

Bye for now!!!!
