Lay-out and Card by Romy

It's Romy here on the Imaginarium Designs blog today. 
I would like to show you a card and a lay-out that I made using some lovely chipboard frames and other embellishments from Imaginarium Designs. I hope you will like them and that they will inspire you to have some fun using Imaginarium chippies yourself too :) 

On this card, I wanted to use this pretty image of a boy and a girl that I cut out, but I actually wanted it to stand out a little more. So I decided to frame the image with two beautiful Imaginarium Designs chipboard frames. I used this large oval frame... well as the rectangular shaped frame from this set. I cut off a few pieces from the small frame to make it fit in nicely within the larger frame. 

I altered both frames with brown distress ink and also added some orange rhinestones to them as a finishing touch. 
The beautiful ornaments that I used in the left upper and right lower corner of my card are also from Imaginarium Designs. 

My second project is a serene beach-themed lay-out, which I titled "Now and forever" as a note to self to get some rest and peace every once in a while. 

The title 'Now and forever' is a chipboard piece from Imaginarium Designs. I made it brown by slightly accentuating it with brown distress ink. 

I also used a beautiful Imaginarium chipboard frame as a nice accent on my photo. I covered the frame with a coat of white embossing powder. 

Last but not least, I further decorated my lay-out with a few small chipboard hexagons from Imaginarium. I think these hexagons make a great finishing touch on all kinds of projects! 

I kept these hexagons quite neutral just like the title on my lay-out and only slightly inked them with brown distress ink.

I hope you enjoyed my blogpost.

It's all PINK!!!!

Hi there
Today I am sharing gorgeous page that Jules created based 
on the Monochromatic theme I set for November!

How divine is this?

 "So I'm a girly girl at heart, and couldn't resist creating a pink layout for our November theme. I created a soft water colour effect for the background, using Gelatos, mica powder and water. I then added rub-ons, fussy cut flowers, and ID chipboard (coloured with Gelatos and Prima inks) for the finishing touches"

Fabulous stuff!

Thanks Jules

"Shabby Chic" Projects

Hi everyone. Carol here today. Sharing with you 2 projects I made. One is a miniature bedroom scene and a simple layout. Its going to be a long post so sit back and slowly browse through.

"Shabby Chic Bedroom Scene"

This miniature bedroom is greatly inspired by the mini fan cum lights that I made out from the pinwheel chipboard and some beads and real lighting. Yup. The ceiling fan/lights can light up. This dollhouse is made with a Daiso frame box and cover one side with a cardboard and a wooden window.

I punch a hole thru the centre of the pinwheel chipboard and inserted the dollhouse lightbub and wire thru, added beads from my own jewelry making stash.  Also drill a hole in the ceiling of the wood box so the wiring can go through before I attach the wiring to a battery box.

I painted the pinwheel chipboard white.

Viola. Lights up. The fan can be "turned" manually.

I built a false roof with a door to hide the wiring and battery box.

Painted all the pretty chipboards white. I made the top decorative motif to hide and distract the eye from the roof hatch. Made the clay motif with a mold and Martha Stewart airdry clay and added the Denise's Art Deco Corner chipboard in front. Added some flowers and diecut leaves too.

Used the Hexagon frame chipboards as photo frames.

 Leave the unit no. chipboard raw. Love the tiny numbers!!!

Made this mint green "Shadow Box frame" from hexagon chipboard, layered with foam tapes and painted with acrylic paint.

This is my favourite!!! Love the oval frame with brackets chipboard!! Made into a mirror with Tim Holtz mirror sheet and attached to this wooden table.

All the cosmetics and accessories on the table is diy from scratch with beads, wires, buttons etc. The lipstick is made with clay inserted to a jewlery finding. Can twist open the cap to reveal the lipstick inside. Hee...

Made a simple wall behind. All the clay motifs are diy from scratch with Martha Stewart clay and molds.

This chair is made from wood sheets, wooden legs and chipboards. Used one Corner with 4 Circles chipboard as the chair backing and one Edward Relief chipboard on the seat.

Made this bed from scratch too using wood sheets, legs and chipboards. The mattress is made with foam wrapped in fabric. The blanket is made with pretty fabric and ribbon (to act as seam binding). I glued the ribbon around the edge with Beacons fabric glue.

The bed headboard is made from the Birdcage chipboard and Denise's Art Corner chipboard. Love it very much!!!

"Blessed" Layout

Made a simple and cleaner mixed media layout. I will be sharing a step by step tutorial below.


 1) Apply clear gesso over the whole page.

 2) Spread texture paste over stencils. Heat dry.

3) Mist the gauze blue.

 4) Misted the background and adhered the tinted gauze with multi medium.

5) Glued down sequins and dew drops with glossy accent.

 6) Inked the chipboards with Viva Decor Inka Gold- graphite. Note: I cut the Denise's Oval Art Deco chipboard into half.

7) Randomly dab white ink over chipboards. And adhered photo and chipboards unto page.

 End result.

These are the chipboards I used for the 2 projects:
