Totally RAD for March!

Hi everyone!

Welcome back for yet another month of stunning inspiration from the Imaginarium Designs DT.
Amanda here with you today,
& boy oh boy, have I got some super cool layouts to share!
Cocoa Vanilla Studio have released a new collection: Totally RAD & it is just the perfect partner for our stunning chipboards!
But less of the chatter.....

Let's start with this Super Cool Totally RAD layout of my boy - aka the scooter demon! 

So awesome, huh?! I love that this collection is so easy to tell a story with! 
Some really cool ways to use your favourite Imaginarium Designs chipboards here too...
Obviously a strong, bold black ink is essential for making titles, substitles & those cool stars 'pop' against all the colours. But it's my use of the star chipboard 'scraps' that I want to focus on.
I've inked mine in orange, and used it to matte my photo onto - really cool! 
Take a closer look.....

Chipboard layering - got to love it! 
And those matte black stars are super cool!
Speaking of stars.... did you spy what else I did to my star chippies?

Yep, that's a star sticker that I mounted directly onto my chipboard to add dimension....
I also added the 'woodies' skull charm over the star -
so this chipboard is seriously well dressed & uber cool!

Such a fun way to add interest to your chipboard favourites!

How awesome are the chippie words too?! The script is simply stunning!

Next up, I have this fabulous double layout that also works as two singles!
Kinda like a 'his' and 'hers' layout.....

I love this! 
Both layouts have been created with the very same Cocoa Vanilla Studio: Totally RAD collection - only I added some blooms from the Hello Sunshine collection to soften my girly page.
Naturally, they feature lots of chippy yumminess!
Let's take a closer look at each layout.....


Such a pretty page! She really is our gorgeous girl too!
To soften the masculine papers, I've used muted, gentle colours and delicate, feminine chipboards.
Those designer cherry blossoms are just divine!
I mean, seriously, how cute is that itty bitty Island mint one?! The sweetest embellishment.
Let's have a closer peak....

Oh, it really is the sweetest lil flower! 
I've inked my tiny blossom in Kaisercraft: Island, the medium size in Ingvild Bolme: Mint, & the largest blossom, as well as the intricate tiny butterflies, are inked in Kaisercraft: Petal. Really soft, gentle & super pretty!
That 'gorgeous' title is also inked in Island ......

Love how beautifully cut the chipboard script words are! The quality speaks for itself!
Here's a closer peak at the other tiny butterfly...

My background has been created with Lindys Magicals: Salt Water Taffy & Fuzzy Navel Peach, and a few white embossed butterflies to enhance the chippie ones!
Soft, elegant and such a lovely girly page -
 despite Totally RAD being for the boys. 
Demonstrating just how essential our chipboards are for attaining the perfect page!
LOVE it!

Time for a look at the 'his' version...


That's my boy, indeed! Such a happy guy - the robots are such a fun adornment to his big personality!
A perfect match with him, and the robot ephemera too!
I've kept to a bold black for the stars, stamping and cheeky title - just to ensure they're seen amongst all that busy pop colour. 
Again, I can't stress enough how exquisitely cut the script words are!

Totally awesome chipboard that forms part of my essential 'must have' list ;)
Let's have a look at those robots...

LOL. These robot chipboards are just too fun! 
I've treated both of mine with blended gelatos, and then highlighted a couple of features with black biro pen. 

Yep, super fun, very boy & totally RAD!

And there you have it!
Totally RAD & Imaginarium Designs are a match made in heaven! 
Hope you enjoyed seeing my creations today & feel a lil inspired!
