Some creating using SCRAPMATTS!!

Good morning to you! It is such a beautiful day here, summer is hanging on by its fingernails I am sure, Autumn is not getting much of a look in as of yet.. but I am not complaining, the cold days will be here soon enough I think.

I am just popping by to share some creating I have done as part of my Scrapmatts design Team commitments.

As you know I have recently become a Grandmother to an adorable little girl so I was wanting to create a special layout for her.  I had this photo which was taken just hours after she was born and I used some older Kaisercraft papers for this page.

some closer views..
I just had to do up this baby Pram with a coat of gesso and a soft peachy water color paint, add some beaded trim and a tiny bit of lace to make it cute for my baby page! I also added some Hearts on the back ground with a stencil and some pink ink.

I used a lovely frame to put around my photo and used some Kaisercraft Rhinestones around the centre for some sparkle.. lots of layers, lace and punched edges.

OOO that photo melts my heart!!!

I just loved creating this layout... perhaps it is because the little person in the photo is so special!!

I have also created a couple of cards... look away now if you dont want to be reminded of how fast this year is going as I have made two Christmas cards. Simple is the name of the game for me, and these took just a few minutes..

A Scrapmatts chipboard tree covered in glitter and sequins and sentiment chippie too..

I have used a stencil on the back ground and a Scrapmatts sentiment.  You can see all the product list I have used over on the SCRAPMATTS BLOG HERE!!!!!

Thanks so much for dropping by today and thank you for the lovely comments you leave me too..
Enjoy the rest of today!!!

KRAFT+ APRIL - a Recipe Challenge...

Hello there,
no this is no joke but we are in April already!!! I am not sure if anyone still does the April Fool jokes anymore so I hope you weren't caught out!! And it is also Easter Weekend, and I wish you all a Blessed Easter too..

This new month brings all the new challenges to inspire us to create... and the new challenge for KRAFT+ is a beauty!!! and it is....

To follow this recipe... to use something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue, on a base of Kraft, and dont forget to tell us what you have used, it is such fun to see how inventive we all are!! This challenge sounds like a Wedding theme, but there are so many other ideas for this challenge...

and my take on this months challenge..
some closer views..

My borrowed element was a potato masher from the kitchen which I used as a stamp on my back ground!!

My new element is the papers which were new in December from Kaisercraft. As well as the blue color..

and my layout..

And my old element is the photo of my Mum taken about 80 years ago.. For lots of inspiration and to link up pop over to the KRAFT+ BLOG ..

Thanks for coming by and I appreciate all the lovely comments you leave me too..
Have a wonderful day!!
