Happy Days

Good morning all This is a layout I have done using a photo taken of me before I was even married with my beautiful grandfather.
On the base I have used the Scrapmatts doily stencil and texture paste.
The clocks were simply inked with brown ink and the title was a combination of brown ink and blue ink then covered with glossy accents
These 2 layouts are ones that did a little while ago but I thought that I would share with you as one I have used Scrapmatts chipboard and left in its natural raw state, the other I have cut apart and inked in black ink. I love how the black ink on the chipboard makes a great pop on the page
Thank you for spending time with me again Heather

A couple of pages with LOTS of fussy cutting

Good morning This month I have done 2 layouts for you.
The first one is of a beautiful photo of my beautiful niece. I have done my favourite, lots of fussy cutting, but started by simply using the square Floral Design stencil and some texture paste to add some background texture to the bottom half of my page. I have also done some splattering using a large white chalk texta.
Tucked in amongst my fussy cut flowers I've added a few of the lace flowers as well. Then finished off the page with the "Never Leaving" chipboard title which I have just simply inked with white ink and added glossy accents on top
My second layout was using this fun Alice in Wonderland range which, again, I have fussy cut pieces and layered to create my page/story. But I started by using the Medium Blocks stencil and some texture paste which I did very randomly and far from perfectly.
I have also used some the Scrapmatts laces as the ribbons on the ends of the tags on the page. The title is from CB117 Assorted Words 30 and I thought suited me peaking through the trees.

Love this Moment

Good morning This month I have started with Christmas and have done a layout using some vintage paper and book pages as the base to build from.
I have also added some of the Scrapmatts lace to the background for a softer feel to the base.
In amongst the fussy cut leaves on the bottom of the page i have added the Scrapmatts Twigs 02, which have just been very simply inked using a soft distress oxide ink.
The title CT058, was painted with red paint then glossy accents applied over the top once dry
Anyway, it was short and sweet this month, but hopefully I may have inspired you to think outside the norm when it comes to starting a scrapbook page. Thank you Heather

Beach Days

Good morning Well on this very wet February morning I have done a layout with a sunny beach theme.
In the background I have used stencil ST5054 Floral Design with a soft glossy texture paste, I let it dry natuarally so that it remained smooth and shiny.
Although I haven't added as many layers and fussy cut elements as usual, I have still added some to give some height and colour using this lovely range from 49 and Market The chipboard is CB6128 Card Elements - Shells. I have inked it with Speckled Egg Distress Oxide and then done some white gel pen work on top. I have layered the chipboard under the photo and title at different hights and levels.

Scrapmatts for April project

Good morning This month I have surprised myself, and probably all of my scrappy friends and have done a double layout for you. I have had these gorgous papers for a little while and have been slowly scrapping a friend's daughter's wedding photos.
Once I figured out where all my fussy cutting and photos were going I then added some stencilling using ST5035 Hearts stencil and some Prima Opal Magic Acrylic Paint.
I had in my Scrapmatts stash an older chipboard pack, CB5078 3D Ornaments 04 which I keep forgetting to do each Christmas. So have used one part of it cut in half on an end of each photo. It is simply painted with the Prima paint to tie in with the stencilling.
For the titles, I have used a couple of the words from CB6131 Assorted Words 32, and have used a purple chalk marker to colour them before attaching to each page with clear drying glue.
Thank you for spending time with me again, and I hope you have a fun scrappy weekend. Heather
