Shine - With Imaginarium Designs!

Today I'm sharing a scrapbook page made using lots of gorgeous Imaginarium Designs chipboard. These pages were made for the Seriously POSH collection kit available at Scrapping Clearly. The photo used for this page was from Melbourne cup day last year :)
For this page I've used Simple Stories POSH papers, diecuts, stickers and enamel dots as well as paints, chipboard, a gold foil doilie and bakers twine. I've cut cards from one of the journalling papers and added a photo of the same size. This was matted on another piece of patterned paper and a gold doilie attached behind. If my doilie is not big enough I cut it in half and attach on each side.
All of the chipboard has been painted with navy blue Jo Sonia acrylic paint. Painting all chipboard the same colour unifies the page (and involves less decisions lol)!

Pocket Page Scrapbooking - With Imaginarium Designs!

Today I'm sharing some pocket page scrapbooking made using lots of gorgeous Imaginarium Designs chipboard. These pages were made for the Seriously POSH collection kit available at Scrapping Clearly. This kit is sold out but there are lots of other amazing kits available and I will have another kit out in June :)  
The basis for the POSH kit was the Simple Stories POSH collection pack as well as paints, chipboard and other fun embellishments. Here is a close up of the LHS. All of the photos for these pages were of the Delta Goodrem concert we went to last year. I've been really struggling to keep up with weekly project life so instead now I mainly use pocket pages for events or occasions - so much more achievable!
All of the chipboard has been painted with acrylic paints that coordinated with the paper collection.  
Here is a close up of the RHS.  
I've added lots of fun stickers and diecuts to my cards as well as enamel dots and the painted chipboard.

Distress Oxide Cards - With Scrapping Clearly!

Today I'm showing some cards I made using Distress Oxide's available in the  Scrapping Clearly Store

I wanted to experiment with how they worked so I made a few different backgrounds for my cards. Warning: these ink pads are very addictive and you will find yourself wanting every colour lol! 

For the first card I stamped the ink pads direct to my craft mat, then spritzed with water, then smooshed my card on the inks. I did this a few times, drying off between each smoosh.
 

For the next card I stamped the ink pads direct to my craft mat, then spritzed with water, then I used a paintbrush to transfer some of the watery ink to a piece of plastic, then I smooshed the plastic onto my card. I did one colour at a time and carefully directed the ink where I wanted it to go.


 After I had completed this for each ink I let it dry then I added paint splatters of each colour - trying to splatter the same colour onto the "Smooshed" section. 
Once this had dried I added some stamping using the Fancy Pants Designs Golden Days stamp set   
Here are my finished cards. I matted my background card onto some coloured card then the card base. Then I added some of additional stamped images and a sentiment from my stash.
I just loved how this card turned out - the background was so pretty I didnt want to cover it up!! 
Here is the second card - how amazing does this background look - again it was far too pretty to cover up!
