Hello out there... August D'Lish Scraps August Cybercrop.

Not sure anybody reads this blog anymore but I've been reading through some old posts and comments and got a little nostalgic about how 'into' blogging I was a few years ago and saw peoples names I hadn't seen in ages and thought what a wonderful community it was.  Alas it dropped by the wayside as things do in our lives as work and families situations dictate.

Lately I've been feeling really good and happy about my scrapping and creating in general.  I've been taking part in some challenges for the first time in well over a year and it feels good.  Connecting with communitites of like minded people and just generally feeling free to create whatever the heck I wanted to. The result - well I love the last half dozen pages I've created.  

So below are a couple of fun pages I created for the August D'lish scraps cybercrop.

One thing I've felt over the past year is that my journalling on pages has been sadly lacking and I'm happy to get back into documenting something a little more meaningful.  Note to self! - Must remember why I started scrapbooking in the beginning.  Memory Keeping!

Thanks so much if you are one of the few who has stopped my blog lately much appreciated.

Scrap and Chat Retreat 2016

Hey all!  A couple of weeks ago I attended one of the most fabulous retreats.  Scrap and Chat Retreats.  Held at 'The Country Place' in the Dandenong Ranges in Melbourne.   The most fabulous arty, creatives gathered together.  It's so amazing to gather with people that 'get' the scrappy/arty thing and understand where you're coming from...Look at all of us.

Here are some of the pages I created at the retreat, the rest you'll see a little later as they were for Design teams. 

Love this one using different bits and pieces from various companies.  Papers from Kaiserkraft, epoxy stickers from Cocoa Vanilla Studio and American Crafts.  And there's also a heart on there from Charms Creations, which I sprayed pink. 

The background on this page is using texture past and a Crafters Workshop Stencils and the colour is from watered down Distress Paints.  

Next page is using the Paige Evans collection from Pink Paislee, love those thickers!

And the last page today is this magical rainbow one.  Accentuated mainly with black and white papers and embellishments and black house paint a la Lisa Oxley.  A New Years Eve photo.  The rainbow effect was with Kaisermists and a smattering of water droplets to achieve a bleached effect.

thanks for stopping by, until next time.

Getting Painty!

I recently created this page for Imaginarium Designs Chipboard.  I used Dylusions paints to create a fun painty background.  

I created another couple of pages and used them as class samples, using the same technique and taught them for Surreal Creations.  Imaginarium Designs sponsored the class with all the chipboard pieces and I used the Cocoa Vanilla Studios - Colour Me Happy Collection

Kaisercrafts' March Collection - Finders Keepers

The Finders Keepers by Kaisercraft released in March and is one of my all time faves I think.  It was such a delight to scrap with and so far I have created four pages and a mini album.  I couldn't stop!!
All the pages below are up on the Kaisercraft blog HERE.
A mini album I whipped up sticking Captured Moments cards together concertina style with washi tape.

February Imaginarium Designs Inspiration

In case you didn't see it I had some creations up on the Imaginarium blog earlier this week. I've copied the post here for you. 


Hello and welcome to the Imaginarium Designs Chipboard blog.
Leonie here today sharing my chipboard creations for February.   This month I decided to go with a bit of a gold theme, all the chipboard I've used has been coloured gold in various ways.   Gold still seems to be very popular which is fine by me because I love the way it looks on my scrapbook pages. 

This first page features my parents in their younger days out on a date, with it almost being Valentines day I thought it an appropriate photo to scrap.  I've added lots of Imaginarium Chipboards and teamed it up with the Hello Love paper collection from crate paper.

I used gold Stampendous embossing powder to emboss the chipboard frame and large heart on this page.   The script words I painted gold and then added gold glitter.  I just love how the gold chipboard all stands out against the pink, red and turquoise of the patterened papers.

All the chipboard I used on this page are linked below to the Seriously Scrapbooking shop.  Home of Imaginarium Designs Chipboard.

My Second page today, as I mentioned has gold chipboard pieces as well. 
I painted all the chipboard on this page with gold acrylic paint. 

Thanks for stopping by the Imaginarium Designs blog.

Cheers and Happy Crafting
