Scrapmatts Design Team Post March 2016

Hello Scrappy friends, it’s lovely to have your company today.

Welcome to my first post as part of the 2016 Scrapmatts Design Team.

It’s exciting to be part of this talented group and I hope you find something to inspire you here.
It's a long post, so you may want to get a cuppa before you start.

My first project is, “Love the way you smile”
A page about my twin Grandsons.

I used Blue Fern paper, Sanctuary, "Meadows of time"

These two little boys are like chalk and cheese, as you may detect from the photo. One is outgoing and bubbly and the other more reserved and measured. One loves sport, the other loves practising his numbers and letters. One goes to sleep in an instant and the other one is still awake at 9 p.m. What they have in common however, is a love of board games, making a racket, swimming and general mischief. They are great fun to have around.

On the second layout,
“Happy Times”

The paper is from 7 Dot's Studio, Celestial Range, "Destination unknown"

I used one of my favourite Scrapmatts pieces, String circles to frame my three gorgeous DIL's.

They were having fun at a party.
Do you like the black wig? All the better for dancing to "Grease" music!

There may have been leg warmers on show too. We were at a party for one of our Son's important birthdays. The "Girl's night out" theme applied to the men as well.

For the final project,
“Happy Birthday”

I made a Birthday tag for someone special.

Using heavy weight card stock, I covered it with crumpled tissue before adding mists.
The cluster is formed around a vine,

for the full range of Scrapmatts chipboard, (Acid Free,) stencils and other products.

Thanks for calling in to say hello.
I truly appreciate any comments you may care to leave.

Scrapmatts Design Team announcement

Hello again Scrappy Friends.
Some of you may have seen on Facebook,

that Scrapmatts have announced their 2016 Design Team.
I’m honoured to have been chosen to work with their beautiful Chipboard and Stencils.

SCRAPMATTS is an Australian company with a big range of Chipboard which can be ordered in different colours.
I especially like those treated with Chalk mist, because they so easy to use just like they are, or they can be overlaid with gesso, mists or textures.
They also stock a range of stencils which are great for mixed media.
Here is a list of the other Design Team members.

It's such a privilege to be on team with these talented artists.
