You Make Me Smile

Hi Imaginarium Designs Friends!

Amanda here, and I can't believe that half the year is almost passed?!! Crazy how quick the time flies when you're having fun!
It's officially Winter here in Australia, and despite the cold, wet & dark days, I am feeling the sunshine in my first layout today. Here it is....

"You Make Me Smile" 

Isn't she gorgeous?!! Growing up far too quickly! Such pretty girl deserves a pretty page... 
I've combined Pink Paislee's Fancy Free collection, & Studio Fourteen40's flair with our favourite chipboard to create this stunning layout. I love the warmth that the yellow painterly background creates. As the yellow is such an enormous POP of colour, I've treated all chipboard to a white finish to maintain a lil delicacy and femininity to the page.
Let's take a closer look.....

To get such a solid white finish, I gave the chipboard 3 coats of Versa Ink in White.
How amazing is that title?! 

No surprise when I tell you that this NEW release chippie title is from our very talented Natalie May - SO cool!!!
You'll also spy that I've use a generous sprinkling of superfine Glitter Snow to the texture paste. This is so that the flat white matte finish on the chipboard is more striking. It becomes more visible...

Those gorgeous flourishes are also from our Designer collection too!

You can find them here:

My second layout that I am sharing with you today is all about my super cool boy, 

"Never Grow UP"

I know, can he get any cuter?!!! Such an awesome lil guy that we totally adore!
I've used another fabulous NEW release chippie title, Never Grow UP. This new title is perfect for scrapbooking those beautiful little people in your lives.
As my page is all about my awesome boy, I've used the Cocoa Vanilla Studio: Made of Awesome collection. That sunburst pattern paper is partnered with our Arrows -  to really draw your eye into my special photograph.
Let's take a closer look at those stunning chippies....

How cool is that title?!! Iv'e used black and gold inks to make it pop, and stapled it in place to add to the fun feel.  Also the silver staples and sequins help to balance all that gold too....

Aren't the arrows just awesome?! I coated mine in coloured inks (red, yellow, green & blue) & then I gave them a semi coat in gold ink ensuring some of the colour was still visible. Very cool!
Here's a couple closer views...

The gold is just a tad too brassy, so it partners perfectly with that cute camera charm too!
Love how everything works so well together!

Amazing boy indeed!
