Scrapbooking - with Karyn!

Hi Imaginarium Designs lovelies!!

It's Karyn here today and I'm so excited to be on the Imaginarium Designs Creative Team for 2016! It is such a pleasure to be creating for this amazing Australian Company and I'm looking forward sharing my crafty creations with you!

Today with 2 scrapbook page to share, made using lots
of gorgeous
Imaginarium Designs chipboard

For my first page I've used this photo of Jessica showing me her new front teeth,
with a fun title of "Bright eyed and bushy tailed" to go with the cheekiness
of both Jessica and the photo!

As well as lots of fun chipboard I've used the November/December scrapbook kit "Leila" from Scrappy Canary for this page. Using a kit is a perfect way to limit the craft supplies available for a page and I find that it then speeds up the crafting process :)
I've used some Glimmer Glaze on the heart chippies. I love that glimmer glaze has an inbuilt brush in the lid (just like nail polish) so it makes using it less messy and quick - although it does take a while to dry. What I often do though is to stick the chipboard on my page raw and finish the page, then add the glaze.

I've also added some glaze to the baskets on the balloons and one of the "balloon" parts, for the other 2 balloons I've stuck patterned paper over the top and sanded around the edges.
This phrase was perfect as a title - I sprayed it with some blue ColorShine.
Around the photo I added some Maggie Holmes ephemera from the SC kit.
"Hello beautiful" is from a Dear Lizzie roller stamp - I love these stamps!!

For my second scrapbook page I've used some photos of when we went on our first family bike ride on the local bike track - John didn't have a bike so he used a scooter lol!
AgaIn I've used the November/December scrapbook kit "Leila" from Scrappy Canary for this page. I love the bright fun colours and designs of the papers in this kit - especially the triangles.
I've used Glimmer Glaze on all the chippies on this page. I had 5 different colours that I bought some time ago and never used, but are perfect for colouring chipboard. I've also just ordered another 4 colours!
Around the photos I've added some Maggie Holmes ephemera from the SC and at the bottom of the page I've added this mini stamp "follow your heart" from a Dear Lizzie roller stamp.
