'Happy Moments' Layout - Scrapmatts 'Budget' Challenge - Prima Rosarian Collection




Hi everyone!  My Scrapmatts layouts went live recently, over at the Scrapmatts blog HERE.  Scrapmatts have a Ning community which is a whole other "world" devoted to their beautiful chipboard.  See my actual post on their blog HERE for all links to actual products.


They have a gallery there, daily blog posts, a forum & an online store.  If you haven't registered yet you really should!  We have monthly challenges with prizes & a friendly design team.


I created this layout for the design team challenge this month which was to create a layout on a budget, using only one sheet of cardstock & 2 patterned papers.  We could use any mediums we likes so I used chalk inks through a stencil, & Liquid Pearls.


As I wasn't allowed to use any bought embellishments I was forced to dust off my - erhemmm...never used...hmmm....hmmm..My Favourite Things - Rose die & roll my own roses, which was rather hilarious (don't look too closely) but I will definitely be doing it again!


I used various Prima collections here, including Rosarian, one of theirs from 2012.  Lots of fussy-cutting, which I am always happy to do (call me crazy but I enjoy it!!)  I also used a Cheery Lynne die 'Olive Vine' for some of the leaves.


The swirls you see are actually the negative part of the rose die!  Waste not want not I say!!  I've used lots of Scrapmatts chipboard here - both glittered-up frames behind the photos plus the words & sentiments.  

Shop for your own Scrapmatts directly from their online store HERE.  
Thank you so much for dropping by!!
