Today, I am posting my last reveal as a Design Team member for Scrapmatts Australian Chipboard. I always hate goodbyes, especially when it is saying goodbye to a position that I have truly enjoyed. I am so grateful to Sofie, Andrew and Angella for having me as a part of the 2013 team, and I will miss them along with all the sweet, talented ladies I have had the pleasure of working with. Thank you for having me~
The DT were asked to create a layout using the following, inspiring sketch by Anne Patterson:
We were to use a photo of us and the theme "All I Want For Christmas", and this is my take on the challenge, using a photo of me cooking in my kitchen last Christmas. I love to cook and for Christmas, all I ever ask for is for my family to come together at my house and for me to cook a huge dinner for them. Call me old fashion, but that is all I want for Christmas :)
I used Scrapmatts:
I used layers of Bo Bunny papers that I punched and splatter painted.
Then layered in cheesecloth, flowers, stamped and fussy cut leaves, and some of my hand crafted Ruby Slipper Glitter Glass Butterflies from my Reneabouquets Etsy Shop.
I ran rhinestones strips down from the photo and topped them with the tiny Chipboard Stars that I inked green then accented with red crystals.
I took a large Medium Star that I coated in Inka Gold and accented with a red crystal and tucked it into the flowers at my photo corner.
I added a small sized star to the bottom corner of my photo next to the journal sticker.
And added a large star piece to the top corner of my photo.
Thank you Anne for your FAB sketch!
This next project is a sweet little mini album that I created for a scrappy friend, who has a little dachshund for a service dog.
On the cover and D-rings you will find Scrapmatts:
At the top of the album I used a Scrapmatts
That I two tone, dimensionally painted, and I surrounded the image with Scrapmatts
using the same paint technique.
The first two sets of pages features Scrapmatts:
On the 3rd set of pages there is a fold down that features a Scrapmatts:
And here is a matching over sized tag that I created for her as well.

I hope that you have enjoyed all my work this year. I have certainly enjoyed all the talented ladies here at Scrapmatt's work and have learned so much!! Thank you for having me and for making me feel so welcome!
I hope you have a Scrappy New Year!! Hugs, ~Renea
