Celebrating Mums with Scrapmatts

Hi & Welcome

Its been a little while since my last post, so much for life slowing down once the kids leave such thing.  My reasoning behind this is,  because you are no longer needing a schedule and times just seems to get away from you when you don't have one.  

The page I created this month for Scrapmatts uses a picture taken on Mother's Day, It was great to spend the day with my mum which I haven't had the chance to do in years.  That's another thing with time, in a blink of an eye its just gone and you don't want to look back and wish you had done things differently.  We all need to be making the time to spend with our parents before they to are gone.

We started of the day with breakfast at home, then we headed of to Brisbane for a lovely lunch at the Six Acres Restaurant followed by some shopping in the city.  

For the background paper I have used one of the new Prima Fruit Paradise - In Season paper.  As much as I love doing mixed media its nice to have a background that you don't have to do to much to.  I have also used papers from the Mintay Collection Life's Stories.  

Other products used:

Scrapmatts - Clocks 09 embossed with Lindy's Stamp Gang, Words
Lindy's Stamp Gang - Bonjour Butter embossing powder
49 & Market Flowers
Prima - Fruit Paradise - In Seasons paper, SIIC Flirty Fleur, Washi Icons, Color Bloom in Iris and Wild Raspberry
Embellish With Flair - Vintage Bees

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed my share for Scrapmatts this month.

A Belated Christmas

Hello & Welcome

Well it's been a little while since my last post, hubby and I took a road trip across to Western Australia.  Just the two of us and our fur babies, we loved it.  Okay there were parts on the Nullarbor that I wish it would just end but other than that it was a great experience.  We travelled over here way back in 1992 and whilst somethings had changed so much hadn't.  Like mobile service OMG who would have thought that this day and age that there would be none.  So at the first port of call with any mobile service I downloaded some you help you get through those long boring sections.   Anyway I had better get on with it and show you what I have been working on.

I started these pages last year, but ran out of time getting them finished and totally forgot my Design Team post. This is why they are Christmas Themed, however I'm sure there are a few of you out there who haven't Scrapped last years Christmas photos.

Christmas Cruise

I  have used quite a bit of mixed media product along with some fussy cutting to get the layers onto this page.   I loved using the new Distress Oxides spray in Iced Spruce.  Love the effect you get .

Some close ups of the Scrapmats chipboard that I have used, I like the raw look of the chippies and with a couple of swipes of ink and some embellishing you can jazz these little pieces up.

On this next page I have used both Kaiser and Mintay papers, loved the colour way of the Kaiser paper and the Mintay has so many beautiful cutouts.

On this close up you can see the colouring and the crackle paint I've used on the Scrapmatt Christmas frame, I think I have used this design a few times as its one of my faves.

I love these wee little hanging ornaments, I've embossed them with the Stampendous distress powder, it gives them a nice two tone effect.

And of course you have to add a little tree to embellish the page.

If you would like any of these product pop on over to the Scrapmatts shop and get yourself some of these beautiful chippies....they are also an Australian company.

Thanks for stopping bye.
