Easter is a coming!!!

Hi & Welcome
Thanks for dropping by!  I hope you're having a relaxing weekend. 
 I'm still waiting for the weather to turn cooler but I did start my weekend  end off with a lovely session of yoga.  If nothing else I will be hot and to speak!!!!
Yesterday was my first Design Team reveal, I decided to make Easter cards.
Now the kids are older and  we don't do the whole Easter egg hunt I'm trying to create some other little memorable moments for us.   Firstly handmade cards and I've just invested in some more cookie cutters, so keep an out later in the month to see what I create.
If you haven't checked out Scrapmatts yet why not pop on over to and check out what the other DT Members have been creating.

 With Love

The great thing about creating cards is you not only gift something handmade to someone, you also use those scraps that just sit around.  Distressing and stitching the edges of the paper  before inking gives a great Shabby look.  And I love pulling out all those metal die's that you only get  to use once a year.  I also used the Scrapmatts String Circles to create a larger egg shape around the cutout bunny.

Again I've used the String Circles and created a birds like nest to cradle the large Easter egg.  Again I have stitched around the edges as well as the egg.  Also used a Kaiser embossing folder to create more texture.  Scrapmatts Words 28 was also used.


On this one I cut out the egg shape in a patterned paper and then using decorative scissors I cut another one slightly larger in white cardstock.  
Using my Quickutz rabbit die, I placed this in the middle of the egg so as to leave the cut rabbit shape behind.  Rather than just leave it an empty space I then glued some printed transparency there to jazz it up a bit.  On this one I have used Scrapmatts Scrap Words 08. 
Well I hope you enjoyed my Easter Card Reveal and we would love you to pop on over and see what all the other Design Team members have been creating.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you take the time out to leave. 
They are always appreciated
Bye for Now!!!!

Scrapmatts 2016 Design Team

Hi & Welcome

Just a quick share, I stubled on this gorgeous chipboard company a few weeks ago whilst at a craft fair.  Whilst have a look around their website I noticed that they were having a DT Call and thought whiy not.  I have more time up my sleeve this year so thought why not apply, and was excited to have Sophie contact me with acceptance.  If you haven't checked out Scrapmatts products go and have a look, you won't be dissappointed with the range.  I especially love the lighter colour choice which is great when you are wanting to colourer them.


This is such a geat line up of tallented people!!!

Congratulations everyone!!!!
