The Raw Obsession with Belinda Spencer

Hello and welcome to my first blog post for 2016!!
I am thrilled to be returning this year to share with you some of the projects I create for my classes at Seriously Scrapbooking using lots of amazing Imaginarium Designs chipboard pieces.
As my title above suggests I absolutely love to use the chipboard in its raw form. The natural look really appeals to me. Not that I don't alter my chipboard now and then too of course!
First up I have my DT layout for Kraft Plus Challenges to share with you featuring some brand new chipboard designed by Louise Nelson as well as some slightly older chippie.
"Our Family Snap Shots" Layout

As you can see some of the chipboard I used is unaltered but some I have swiped lightly with an Aqua Paint Dabber.

Here's a closer look.

I chopped up the Our Family Snap Shots in the Photo Frame and used that as my title.

"Capture Happy" Layout

This is another DT layout I created for Charm's Creations using the Jan Mood Board challenge. The gorgeous papers and embellies are from the Free Spirit Collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studios. You can see all of the chipboard is in its natural state. I told you I loved it like that! :-)

"Week 12 2015 Project Life"

For my final project I am sharing my project life spread that I will be teaching in March at Seriously Scrapbooking. It features a whole heap of Imaginarium Designs chipboard. Just to keep everyone on their toes I do like to mix and match all of the different chipboard pieces. It keeps life interesting. :-)

Here's a closer look at some of the pockets.

I hope you enjoyed checking out my projects today and I have given you a little bit of inspiration to use your chipboard pieces just as they are.



  1. I love your work. Also such a great idea to use the chipboard natural. It creates such a lovely contrast. I think you used some awesome pictures.
    Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous work.
