Design Team Call - Imaginarium Designs!

One of my Graphic 45 Teamies, Jane Tregenza, also has a company called Imaginarium Designs. She sells the most amazing and intricate chipboard shapes! Well, Imaginarium Designs is having a design team call right now. Anyone interested is asked to create a blog post showing 10 of their favorite projects using chipboard!

I adore Jane (who I got to meet last January) and I love her products. I would love to be on her design team, but even if I'm not selected, I want to support Jane and her fantastic chipboard images! Therefore, here are my "Top 10" chipboard projects!

I created this chipboard mini from scraps of chipboard, and several Imaginarium Designs shapes. I inked the shapes, then covered them with Stickles glitter glue.

Below is a close-up of a few of the pages. This little mini is really a fancy gift card holder!

This next project is an altered trick-or-treat bag I made just recently. I used lots of chipboard: the button, the house, the fence, the fancy "roof" are all chipboard shapes.

I made this "steampunk" project from a scrap of chipboard that I cut into a tag shape. Then I decorated pre-made chipboard shapes with paper, ink, and embossing powder.

I love chipboard shapes, and used a lot of different shapes and a large alphabet to create this banner.

I used the very detailed Imaginarium Designs word art for the layout below. I inked and glittered the letters.

I like to use chipboard on cards as well as on layouts, mini albums, and mixed media pieces. Many folks feel that making a "lumpy" card is not a good idea. I think that if someone is special enough, I don't mind paying extra to mail the card in a padded envelope! So I lump up my cards!

I love large chipboard shapes, like this one below. Large shapes are easy to cover with paper and then decorate to make a home decor piece. For this wall art, I added some small chipboard shapes as well.

Mini books are my favorite things to make, but they take a long time to create! This one is filled with chipboard shapes and alphas!

I used chunky glitter on the chipboard alphas, covered the large chipboard bird with paper, and inked and stamped on the chipboard flourish! Whew!

Here are a few close-ups of an inside pages. Lots of chipboard.

This is a layout I made using some Imaginarium Designs chipboard shapes; the intricate butterfly and the fence. I sprayed them with glimmer mist. The chipboard takes the mist very well!

This last item is a card and altered box I made. I used chipboard shapes and some scrap chipboard to add dimension to my images.

That's my all chipboard all the time post! I hope you enjoyed looking at all these projects!

I'll be back later today with a winner for my Christmas tag drawing!
