February Guest Designer..... and a Brand NEW Competition

Hello hello

I hope you all enjoyed our month of introductions of our amazing new 2012 Design Team.

This month we have a Guest Designer who is a fabulous Australian talent!

Meet Debbie Smith....

About me –

I live in Adelaide with my husband, three year old son and four year old daughter, and wake up to crazy every day! I love the photo-a-day project which I’ve been doing for two years, with both my Canon and my i-Phone, and jazzing up the photos in Photoshop Elements afterwards. I’ve been scrapbooking for four years, and love it more and more every day. I love the joy of creating and playing with new techniques, as well as the satisfaction of recording our story.
I love all things papercraft including stamping, cards, and homemade mini books. My pages incorporate lots of bright colours, textures, paint splatters and a little retro twist. I am not shy about upcycling found objects or raiding my kids’ craft stash. I love challenge blogs and I’m having an absolute ball as a member of Kraft It Up's Creative Team. I love kraft! And I love chipboard – inking it, stamping it, embossing it, painting it, even covering it with fabric and patterned papers. I’m really grateful to Imaginarium Designs for this opportunity to be a guest designer! 

Thanks Debbie!
We sent Debbie a pile of Imaginarium Chipboard and this is what she created!
"I took an old children's picture book that was falling apart and nearly threw out. I knew it would be great for upcycling into a book for my son, Angus. The bundle of chipboard from Imaginarium was perfect for this project.
I used the clock for the front cover with the title "Time for..." to set the theme for the book. I embossed it and the title on the back page in black. Black embossing powder is my favourite thing at the moment! Because Angus has autism, I decided to keep the pages very simple so they followed the same template: bright colours on the left side, photo on the right. I painted the edges of the photos to make the colours in the photos 'pop'.
Lastly, I cut up a long piece of chipboard with repeating patterns into seven pieces, painted them in bright matching colours and added  one to each page like a bookmark.
I'm really pleased with the result and I can't wait to show Angus. He's very sensory and I know he's going to love it"

 I think this is just amazing - the simplicity of the project for her son is perfect - it will be a true sensory experience.

Debbie used the following ID products for her project ....


These items can be purchased online at Seriously Scrapbooking or ask your local Scrapbooking shop to order it in for you! 

Thanks Debbie - Love your project!
