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!

Miriam's Christmas Album

 Hi everyone, Miriam here with my new Christmas Box.

I used Couture Creations  "Christmas Emporium" papers to cover the box and painted the edges with a pretty sliver paint.

There are photo mats and some tags for recording special moments at Christmas.

Imaginaruim Design chipboard fitted very well with the tags and the front and inside of the box.
I painted the leaves on the front with Faber Castell Big brush pens and applied a little sliver Kindy Glitz, and some satin ribbon to tie the box.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

December Projects with Belinda Spencer


Belinda here today to share lots of lovely projects with you featuring some fabulous Imaginarium Designs chipboard pieces.

I have a whopping 4 layouts as well as a card for someone special so I best get started!!

"Celebrate Today" Layout

I was absolutely thrilled to be invited to teach a class to someone wonderful ladies who travelled from interstate to spend the weekend scrapping up a storm here in Adelaide. This was the layout I taught featuring the beautiful and totally sweet Make A Wish Collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

You can see from the close-up that this layout was built up with many layers of pretty patterned papers as well as CVS chipboard stickers to create lots of dimension. I do have a bit of a 'flat' phobia!

I needed the chipboard to stand out from the multi coloured background and papers so I painted it with heavy white gesso as a contrast.

The 'Celebrate Today' title was the most perfect title to use with this range.

"Baby Love" Layout

I created this layout for Charm's Creations and it features the most adorable Crate Paper Little You Collection. I just love this paper range with its gorgeous colours and cute little images so perfect for the photo of my sweet little man.

There are so many cute little cloud images in the range so I used the Four Clouds in a board chipboard and covered them with patterned paper.

The stars worked perfectly with the paper range too. These were given my usual treatment of a couple of coats of heavy white gesso. I painted the word "love" with gesso too.

"Happy" Layout

This layout was my entry for the November Jot Magazine Mood Board challenge. I created such a colourful background that the chipboard needed the white gesso treatment again to help it stand out from the 'in your face' colour of the rest of the layout.

"Our Home" Layout

This layout is my take on the current challenge at Kraft Plus Challenges; 'Home Sweet Home'. I couldn't wait to use the "Where The Wild Things Are' papers and embellishments that I bought recently from Seriously Scrapbooking. So appropriate for the photo of my little wild things at home on our farm.

I painted the title with white gesso to make it stand out from the photo that I glued it onto.

I sprayed the stars with a metallic gold spray paint to complement the gold embossed stamped stars on my background.

I inked up one of the twigs with a metallic black/gold ink and the other I painted with white gesso as a contrast.

"Skull" Card

This was a card I whipped up for an awesome scrappy peep who inspires me with her amazing artwork. I used up some leftover board scraps from the 21 Stars in a board as well as the Tinies Stars and tore them into pieces . I painted the larger stars board with black gesso and the tinies one with gold metallic spray paint.

The circular cross hatch was sprayed with Kaisermist in Turquoise and the butterflies and stars were left in their raw state.

Well that is all from me for this month. I hope you are feeling inspired to have a play with your ID chipboard.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
