Guest Designer Tarrah and your chance to win ....

Hello to you all.

Here in Australia there are so many super talented scrapbookers and papercrafters... so far we have been lucky enough to meet Krisy ... next month you will meet Adriana.... and today I am introducing you to Tarrah McLean .....

"My name is Tarrah McLean, I live on the beautiful NSW Central Coast with my husband Simon and our two gorgeous sons Luke-10 and Oliver-5.
I have been scrapbooking for 10 years, starting when my eldest son was born. I was hooked instantly…it didn’t take me too long to venture into my own style with all the other gorgeous products out there.  I love to include flair, typography, cut files, chipboard/wood veneer and machine stitching on my layouts!
My style has really evolved over time....I would currently describe my scrapbooking style as clean, layered, colourful and trendy! I mostly enjoy creating layouts but I also enjoy creating cards and mini albums as well.
My Blog:

A big thank you to Natalie for having me as a guest designer for Imaginarium Designs!"

I asked Tarrah to create a couple of projects with Imaginarium Chipboard and this is what she created .....

This layout was perfect to add some Travel themed chipboard pieces by Imaginarium Designs! I especially loved the compass and just had to get that onto a page! I inked the pieces in some different coloured inks before adhering them to my layout.


I cut some heart cut files and adhered them all down for a different look, as it is a Love themed page, it was so easy to include the 'Forever' chipboard title underneath the 'Together' word. I also used some of Louise's chipboard hearts inked in pink and layered over the paper hearts also

This is my favourite layout I created for Imaginarium Designs! I love how all that colour from the paper piecing looks behind that large 12 x 12 chipboard frame. I painted the frame in a few coats of white acrylic paint and then finished it off with some white mist over the top for a smooth finish. I also inked the You & Me title in bronze to help make my title stand out!

Thanks so much for creating for us Tarrah

Please leave her some love.
