Scrapmatts - Free Choice

Today I have my DT creations for Scrapmatts and this month was free choice... YAY!!!  I received some gorgeous goodies in my parcel from Sof and Andrew and my absolute fav is the new Printers Tray and there are some yummy Chrissy chippies which I will use next month.  Pop in and check out the Gallery to see all the amazing creations and maybe be inspired to use some Scrapmatts chippies.

I was lucky enough to be asked by Sofie and Andrew to demo at the Craft and Quilt Show in Brisbane and it was fantastic.. had a fabulous time and got to meet the girls and so many lovely ladies.  OMG I was able to see the DT creations up close and was blown away with how talented the Scrapmatts DT are!!

Don't forget you still have time to enter this month's challenge and be in for a chance to win a Scrapmatts prize.

Printer's Tray
I had so much fun playing with the Printer's Tray.  It's a fabulous quick and easy off the page project and would make a wonderful gift for someone special at Christmas.

The papers are a MME Lost & Found 6x6 pad and then jazzed them up with some smaller chippies.  I used the holly leaves under the bird, a flourish, butterfly and assorted words, which I coloured with the stardust gelly roll pens which are available at Scrapmatts.

Enjoy the Journey

Went for a grunge look for this LO of Luke and used one of the large circle chippies which I covered in twine.. took a while, but it was worth the effect.  I teamed the circle design with various gears... one of my fav chippies for a masculine LO and added a few metal embellishments.  The chain around the circle is available at my2angels.

Sweet 16
Was inspired to used some yummy MME Lost & Found II papers for this recent photo of Brittany and kept it fairly simple.  I used the page border chippie and coated with it with gold glitter to blend in with the MME glittered papers.  I also used the cute little butterfly chippies which I backed in pp and glittered the edges in black.  The little butterfly charm was recycled from a bracelet and tied to the page with twine.  Finished off with a yummy flower cluster using a Manor House Creation flower and and a touch of lace and pearls.

Brittany turned Sweet 16 while I was at the Craft show.  I had so much going on at that time, so I started creating the card while I was there and finished it off when I got home, just in time to give to Brittany that evening.

I used the gorgeous dress form which I backed in pp and embellished with ribbons and a mini rose.  The glitter effect on the dress form was done with the clear gelly roll pen.  This was such a quick card to make and again I used a MME Lost & Found 6x6 paper pad which are perfect for cardmaking.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving some love.
