Sharing Some Christmas Joy with Leonie Neal-Dawson

Hello to all our lovely Imaginarium Designs Fans.   Leonie here today and well the Christmas season is upon on us so I have some Christmas projects to share with you today.   

'Santa Antics'
First up is this page titled 'Santa Antics' and I've embellished this page with Loolabelles Chevrons, painted red and white, and Nat's Hearts.  I've also used two bracket frames and placed some Christmas patterned papers behind them.


'You Smile With Your Heart' (6 Selfies)

Last year for our Christmas photo I got each member of my family to take a selfie of themselves with the rest of us in the background.  I hadn't yet scrapped them but now I have this page with its lovely title 'You Smile With Your Heart' painted red and white, plus some simple chipboard stars painted white.

Christmas Tags

Lastly I created some Christmas tags which I think will make lovely embellishments to my gift wrapping this Christmas.
I've used Imaginarium Chipboard tags painted bright colours and them adorned with Imaginarium Designs Christmas balls also painted and doodled with white gel pen.  Some Chipboard stars and hearts plus a type written message, some flowers and twine complete these cute little tags. 

Thanks for joining me today on the Imaginarium Designs blog and I wish you all the best in the build up to Christmas.  Don't forget to leave a comment to go in the draw for a pack of our lovely chipboard Designs. 
Leonie Neal-Dawson.

Wild at Heart - layout by Adriana Bolzon

Hello everyone, 
Today, I am excited to be back at "Imaginarium Designs blog as a Guest Designer this month, using chipboards to create a layout.

Here is my layout -

I used the papers and stamp set and flowers from a Christmas collection
"Season's Greetings" from Couture Creations. I just want to also show you Christmas collections of papers and embellishments really can be used for other themes projects.

Below is the word title "WILD AT HEART" chipboard  IDP0181, in which I applied a couple of coats of gesso.I love how the white stands out from all the red and brown tones.

I inked all the hearts shapes from the chipboard called
"LOU's HEART SHAPES"  IDDL0015, also adding some glossy accents on top.

I also inked some of the NAT"S HAND DRAWN LEAVES" IDDL0015 with green ink pad and adhered around, underneath the flowers.

Holiday creating with Sonia Thomason

Well the kids are on holidays and the Christmas shopping is well underway so it was time to stop and have a little bit of creative fun! The Christmas spirit is well and truly around so I had fun with some Christmas Tags and a Christmas card. Just so the mojo can have a bit of free reign I also had a play in my journal - relaxation overload!

'Christmas Tags'

Imaginarium Designs products used: Denise's Flourish 1 IDDD0002 and  21 Stars in a Board IDS0076

 Both the Flourishes and the gorgeous stars have been heat embossed with an aged gold embossing powder
 The 21 Stars in a Board are just gorgeous! I love how they add movement and texture to both the tags and the inside of the frame in which they are mounted

'Christmas Card'

Imaginarium Designs products used: Denise's Oval Art IDD0047

The detail on this gorgeous frame is so amazing! The intricate design lends itself perfectly to the vintage style card. The frame has been heat embossed in an aged silver.

'# Wonderful Journal Page'

Imaginarium Designs products used: Monarch Butterfly IDS0059, Moroccan Border IDB0012 and #instagram words IDW0094

 All of the chipboard has been heat embossed in an aged silver.
I love using chipboard in a journal as it provides so much detail and texture without adding bulk to your book

It's a little bit of Christmas spirit ...

It's December .... and December means all things festive!

This month the girls are creating with a Christmas theme in mind.

First up is Carol

 Made a set of 3 Christmas cards. Rubbed chalk inks on white cardstock. 
Painted the chipboards with acrylic paints. Filled the empty spaces with diecuts, cut outs
 and glitter glue dots. For the Christmas wreath card I stamped and colored the wreath with 
color pencils then add the chipboard Kerri Flourishes and a bow.


And Sandi has created this gorgeous page

The background was created when I placed a range of Imaginarium Designs 'Stars' sizes down before spraying LSG 'Risso's Rowdy Red ' over the top. Removing them left the masking effect shadows and to add that magic sparkle of Christmas I applied 'Mega Flakes ' to the paper. The baubles were covered with Christmas papers and the tops embossed with 'Gold' Metallic Melts gold embossing powder which I also used on the 'Christmas' chippie. I used 'Pine cone' Versa ink to cover the frame and 'gold' Metallic Melts on the word 'Snap'. 'Cardinal' Versa ink and Metallic Melts 'Glistening snow' were used on the Berry branches.

Louise as you know is a huge fan of the a black and white theme when it comes to her creativity, and Christmas is no exception :). Louise has used black card blanks and some fabulous Christmas themed Imagninarium Designs chipboard spray painted white to create her simple cards.

Gorgeous work ladies!
