Shining Stars with Amanda Baldwin

Hi my chippie lovelies!

Welcome to July - oh my, half the year has passed already?!!
I hope that you've been enjoying all our wonderful inspiration here on the
Imaginarium Designs blog.

Today I have a few gorgeous & super fun layouts that feature some awesome new release chipboard, as well as a few personal faves.
So, without further ado, here's my creations....

"Super Star" layout

Okay, so no new chippies here - but some of our staple chippies that are just too good not to showcase!
Stars are such a simple but oh-so-effective chipboard to embellish you layouts & cards with.
And truly, how cool is my lil Super Star?!!
Let's look closer.....

Love that chipboard title - it partners perfectly with the stars - and what better way to see a star shine than to add a lil glimmer mist to it! The shimmer spray really adds to the title and makes it sing!
But before I added the shine factor, I actually coated my title and a few of my stars in Gelatos - which react really effectively with the Glimmer Mist.
Here's another view....

Yep, very cool boy indeed!
The remainder of my stars are inked in black & island blue, and a few are layered for interest.
I love how fun this page is - it really captures the essence of my Super Star! 

Imaginarium Products Used:

Okay, that was fun, but I did promise a peak at some new release chippies, didn't I?
Well, check this out....

"#Ur Awesome" layout

Seriously cool, huh?!!!
Loving these new designer chippies!
The Freaky Peep Crosses are from none other than our 'artist in residence', Loolabelle
the uber cool Pin Wheels are from our amazingly talented, Natalie May.
Seriously, cool chipboard - the possibilities are endless with these two!
Let's take a closer peak.....

I love that Pin Wheel - Isn't it awesome?!!
To make it stand out, I layered it onto my doily, stamped it in matte black ink and then added a flair button over the centre. Perfect!
The best part; it comes in a board of 3, all in different sizes - ideal for all your crafting needs!
Love it! 
Here's a closer look at Lou's crosses.....

Super cool and very on-trend! 
They need no heavy detailing - they're just treated with a juicy ink!
They're definitely a new fave of mine!

Seriously Scrapbooking have them in stock NOW!

And my last layout I am sharing with you today features more of Natalie's design brilliance...

"Xoxo Happy" layout

Fabulously fun & oh those chippies!
Pink Paislee's Citrus Bliss collection works so well with these pie chart style chipboards! It's like a lemon frenzy, but it works so well!
And those sweet skeleton style hearts are terrific!
Let's look closer....

Natalie is bang on-trend with these awesome new designs!
Keep an eye out for these beauties!

And there you have it! 
Some fab faves and some seriously cool new chipboards to inspire you too!
