Scrapmatts Design Team Share

Good morning and welcome to my Scrapmatt's Design Team projects.

Well its been an absolute awesome storm season again here in QLD.  It seems we just get the internet back up and running and BOOM we have either lost it or its intermittent.  Then we have the dreaded call to Telstra, no one likes that, and after going through the usual stupid questions they finally agree its not working!!!!   Anyway we've all been through it so I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about.  Needless to say its been a struggle getting my blog posts up.

First up I'm sharing a layout I have created using a collection of papers I've had in my stash to do with the Beach.  As well as the lovely Scrapmatts chippies.  I even pulled out my typewriter that I picked up for $10 and did some journalling, I sometimes get a little lazy with that side of my scrapbooking.

I have tucked some gorgeous hand dyed lace under the torn paper to give it a more 3D look, as well I've cut out these tiny little paper fish and raised them up with foam tape.

The close up pics also show you the inking and glitter that I have applied to my chipboard elements.

My 2nd project is a 3D Card I have made using the new Spellbinders Dome 3D card Set.
I must say I'm loving this die and its versatile enough to use on your scrapbooking pages as a frame.

I have stamped on one of the circles that get cut out when you use this die and this was adhered to the back with some 3D foam.  The Scrapmatts chipboard used here was from the new Wildflower 02 collection that was newly released.

On this close up you can see just how intricate this die is.  I have also cut and raised the flowers and butterfly and embellished them with shave ice.

Product Use:

Prima - Paper, stickers & SIIC
49 & Market - paper & flowers
Scrapmatts - Twigs, Nautical, Shells 02, Wildflower
Tim Holtz shaved ice, oxide ink
Bazzill cardstock
Spellbinders 3D Grand Dome Set
Songbird paper collection
hand dyed lace
shell brads

Thanks for stopping by.

Welcome to Creative Artiste Challenge #35

 Hello & Welcome to February's

Thank you to everyone who shared their wonderful projects withth us for Challenge #34 last month. 

We were thrilled with all the wonderful entries. It made choosing a winner and Top Three very difficult.
If you would like to see the winners projects,
 pop on over to the blog

Our lovely sponsor this month is:


Our theme this month is, as always,
"Anything Mixed Media Goes"

This month I decided to work with a canvas, I use the term loosely.  I can't remember the company who manufactured these but its basically a card board canvas. 

 The word Beyoutiful is gold foil printed along with a resist pattern.  However when I misted it with some Prima colour Blooms it didn't really expose the You part like it should. To make it standout I have used white puffy paint. The rest of the background was created using some Stamperia rice paper & crackle paste, Scrapmatts doily stencil, as well as some stamping and some prills.  

Embellishments used:  

Prima & Kaiser Craft blooms
MME - chippboards
Memory Box - butterfly die
Ranger - dimensional pearls

Thanks for dropping by and we would love for you to stop by the blog and check out all the other Design Teams amazing altered projects.

Bye for now!

New Year, New Creations with Scrapmatts


Wow, can you believe we are already nearing the end of the first month of the New Year!  
I don't know whether its just speeding up as we get older and we are just trying to pack more into life, or are we slowing down and just not achieving as much. 

Anyway on that note, I was able to grab some time to get creative.  After clearing away all the Christmas decorations,  I came across quite a few items of packaging that I thought it would be such a shame just to chuck in the bin.  With that in mind I've created a keepsake cylinder, which once housed my daughters new boom box.  I thought it would be nice to to get some of the treasured baby keepsakes out storage and pop them into something a little nicer as well as easier to find.

I've used some sweet Scrapmatts chippies, see if you can spot them.  

I have coated the chipboard with Nuvo Embellishment mouse in Mother of Pearl, as well as Prima's Memory Hardware Powder, Marquise Blue and inked the edges with some green ink.

I also created a Christmas page documenting our Christmas Day traditions.  Although I think this year we were a little on the lazy side due to the heat.

Love these adorable little Christmas Baubles, I have blinged them up with some gold powder.  I have also used the Scrapmatts Doily template with Stamperia's crackle paste.

I have to say the Scrapmatts chippies in white are my fave, they are perfect for colouring when you are wanting them to tie into you page.

Thanks for stopping by, if you would like to grab these Scrapmatts products, you can buy directly from their online webstore.  

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Until next time!

Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge #34

Happy New Year Everyone

Welcome to my first Design Team post for 2018

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas as well New Year celebrations.

Our lovely sponsor this month is:

Tando Creative
who are offering a massive 30% discount to two winners!

Our theme this month is, as always,
"Anything Mixed Media Goes"

I altered a biscuit tin which I will use in the craft room to house my paint brushes.

I lightly sanded the tin before applying some thick gesso.  Once this dried I used a Scrapmatts mandala template with texture paste as well as randomly applying some Stamperia crackle paste.

Once dried I sprayed with a couple of different Prima Blooms.

I've added lots of texture using different items such as flowers, sequins, lace, bling and stamping.

Thanks for stopping by, I  hope you have enjoyed check out my project and I hope you have time to join us.

Until next time, bye for now.

I created this month a mixed media canvas.

The big Monogram word Family, has little reminder written into each letter, ie don't forget to buy milk etc 

Hope you've enjoyed looking at my project and I look forward to seeing your lovely creations.

Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge 32

 Welcome crafty friends,

Well we are into a new month, which brings us to a new challenge.

Thank you to everyone who shared their fabulous projects with us for Challenge #31 last month.

We were thrilled with the number of entries and wonderful creations. It made choosing a winner and Top Three very difficult. 

The winner's post is below this one. Have a look to see if you were successful.

This months Challenge is sponsored by:

The project I decided to create this month, is an upcycled packaging box.  I hope most crafters look at all packaging as a opportunity to reduce land fill. 

I covered the box with some decorative paper, followed by adding fussy cut pieces cut from some old Websters papers.

I've also adhered some Scrapmatts chipboard 

Decorating pieces like this also helps use up those little bits and pieces lying around.  

Products used:

Prima - Flowers, bling & Bloom spray
Scrapmatts - chipboard 
Paper - Manor House & Websters

Thanks for stopping by!!!!

Today, Life, You - Scrapmatts

Hi & Welcome

Well we have been battling loads of wet weather here in Sunny QLD, not that Im overly complaining, however its a little hard to get a decent shop of projects when its continues gloom skies. 

Today I'm up on the Scrapmatts blog with this months projects, I have created a mixed media page and some more Christmas Cards.

First up.

This page was created using Lemoncraft paper range Every Day Spring, love the vibrant colours in this collection.

I have also used muslin that I sprayed with some Prima Bloom mists along with Prima bling and flowers.  The Scrapmatts Net03 Chipboard used has been treated with the Finnabair mixed media Patina Effects kit. This packs comes with 3 lovely little pots of coloured texture paste and the texture is unlike any other texture paste I've used.

Up next are some more Christmas Cards I have made using the BoBunny Carousel Christmas Collection.  I love how BoBunny gives you so many paper elements to cut out, that you really don't need a lot of embellishments to make something beautiful.  I have however used these cute little stick stars from Scrapmatts.  You can find them over here.

Thanks for stopping bye and I hope you have given you some inspirations this weekend to get you creating.  Until next time!!!!
