Guest Designer ...... Irit Shalom

Hello my dear crafty friends!

Irit Shalom is here again and this is my last post as Imaginarium September Guest Designer.

This time I worked with whatever chipboards left (lesson learned- try to keep more of products for the last post...). But then it was such a fun to make this last layout and I think it really tells a story of my dear 2 and something years old grandson Omer who already was 4 times abroad (even went to Thailand and Italy twice). Those are studio photos I used here, but they were so perfect  for those chipboard frames and a lot of travel stamping I added over the patterned paper.

I used 2 frames to frame 2 very similar photos  and even found the background paper that fits the photos brick background. Both frames were inked with blue distress ink. The criss cross frame was left inked only. The polaroid frame was also heat embossed with clear embossing powder and looks shiny.

 I made the title from two different boards: Favorite came from photo frame and Moment came from Capture Moment Smile board. Both words and two flourishes were painted with Gelatos and I didn't try to make it pretty: you still can see a lot of paint left " as is". I think it makes it unique. But then as this is water color kind of a paint I added some fixative over the chipboards.

The hearts piece was painted in the same way as the title, but then I added some blue paint and mixed it to a different look.
And here are some stamped embellishments I made for this page . I know those are not chipboards, but they look so great on this travel page.

Here are Imaginarium products used for this page:

Other products used:
Paper, stickers: Paper House Productions
Stamps: Rubber Dance
Inks: Ranger
Embossing powders: WOW! Embossing Powders
Other: washi tapes and buttons

This is it. This was my last post as Imaginarium Guest designer.
I hope I inspired you a bit with my kind of scrapping and crafting.
I want to thank the company and the team for letting me  to work with most gorgeous chipboards and hope to be back again some day.

Very different projects by Tanya.

It is Tanya.
Today I want to show you  very different projects with Imaginarium chipboard. I love all designs of ID chipboards because they are universal! I can use them in any styles.
The first project - it's a cover for the frame, upholstered with synthetic padding.
 I covered chipboard by black archival ink and emboss with powder.
I used

And second project with my son! He is sometimes a little crazy as any child!
This LO I made in a completely different style.
All chipboards on this LO I sprinkled with gold spray effect. And I used a frame from chipbord.
 See how it shines!

Clearly amazing

Hi there
Denise here sharing with you today
 I am going to share one of my favorite things to use on your base Acetate, and this time with it I have played with texture paste and stencils I have pulled out a lot of photos taken from guests at our wedding and am re-vamping our album combining with copys of some of the photographer's photos to give a whole new feel to my second Album.
Yes in the 80's

With a layout sitting behind using Acetate gives so much dimension which I love and being able to see all your layers

 the reverse side

Its funny how you always have your favorites and you don't mean too, but yet again I have used my go to chipboard

September Projects by Romy


Today it's my turn to  show you my September projects for Imaginarium Designs. 
First off, I made a vintage lay-out with a beautiful clock frame, a few gears and a peacock feather from Imaginarium. 

Again, I have cut out the inner part of the clock so I could use it as a frame for my photo. 
I accentuated all chipboard pieces with brown distress ink and added rhinestones as a finishing touch. 

I also just love the tiny chipboard pieces that Imaginarium Designs offer. For instance, I'm a huge fan of these pretty gears and of the tiny peacock feathers. 

My second project is a romantic card with a soft pink colour palette. On my card I also used a clock frame, but then a tinier one than I used on my lay-out. I adorned it with pink embossing powder. 

I hope you enjoyed my blogpost.
