Scrapmatts - A Sad Goodbye

Hi Girls,

So sad that this will be my last post at Scrapmatts  A huge thank you to the wonderful Sofie and Andrew, the gorgeous DT girls and all the lovely ladies who take the time to comment on our DT creations for making my time at Scrapmatts so fabulous.   I've had the most amazing time creating with all the fantastic Scrapmatts chipboard, but sadly it's time to make way for some new talent.. I am dying to see who made the 2013 Scrapmatts DT... not long now!!  I still have a massive stash of Scrapmatts chippies, so you will still see my creations in the gallery from time to time.

Jingle All The Way
Well the theme this month is all things Christmas... I have created 2 tags, 2 cards and a mini Christmas album.

Mini Christmas Album
I had 2 of the larger Christmas Ornaments in my stash and decided to create a quick mini album with them.  They come with a frame and backing, so I used the backing as a stencil to cut out 2 extra inserts to make a 6 page album, and embellished each page with different chipboard elements.

Chipboard used:  Christmas Ornaments 08 CB6025, 09 CB6026 and 10 CB1183, Snowflakes 01 CB1178, 02 CB1179 and 05 CB1182, Reindeer 01 CB1093, Holly 01 CB1104, Words 14 CB1061, 20 CB1100 and 21 CB1101, Christmas Scene 01 CB6070, Kitchenware 02 CB1138.

Vintage Christmas Tags
Love the new chipboard tags!! I have created  2 vintage tags by inking the tags in gold then covering them with some gorgeous MME and Teresa Collins vintage papers.  I finished them off by embellishing them with snowflakes and  Christmas word chippies.

Chipboard used:  Tags 01 CB3003, Snowflakes 01 CB1178, Hanging Stars 01 CB5097, Words 14 Believe CB1061

Shabby Chic Christmas Cards
You will have probably guessed by now that I am very partial to the shabby/chic style.  I was working on these last month and was originally going to create 2 sweet birthday cards, but as the theme was Christmas I changed them up by adding some snowflakes and Christmas word chippies, then grunged them up with some gesso and glimmermist to create 2 shabby Christmas cards.

Chipboard used:  Bird Cages 02 CB1074, Snowflakes 04 CB1181, Words 20 Noel CB1100, Words 21 Joy CB1101
