Squeaky Swings And Tall Grass

Don’t you love it when you turn inspiration into a creation??
I ordered a scrapmatts filmstrip a while ago
I knew how I wanted to use it
Just hadn’t had the inspiration to use it how I wanted to
Until today

I used papers from the January Cocoa Daisy kits

and told a story to go with one of my new favourite photos of the girls (hence the new blog banner lol)

Spy the heart?
It’s from a Topiaries pack

Something else that has been inspiring me
Pinterest
What’s not to be inspired by??!!
I had pinned this card


and was inspired to create this card (using a Scrapmatts Reindeer)

I also made this card

It uses a Christmas Ornament
I backed it with a punched circle from a Darkroom Door Montage (Yuletide
and I cut the words from the Yuletide Wordstrip

In December Scrapmatts had a 12 Days of Christmas challenge
Here is my page, using flourishes

I coloured them with a blue chalk pen

wondered if it would work

and the journaling

and it wasn’t just scrappy inspiration that had us creating today
White Wings had us inspired
With their Double Choc Fudge Brownie Mix

  1. Oh I've just enjoyed having a look at the latest offerings on your bloggy! I've found myself looking at scrapbook pages lately and thinking Hmmmm I think I'm going to do more paper-layery pages this month. Less paint more scrap I say! Oh and the little cards were were really sweet. I love anything krafty! Deb xox

  2. Some fab pages - especially love the top one with the fiskars film strip. Such a good idea to use it for the title instead of for photos!
