CELEBRATION AND A TREASURE BOX


Hello everyone my turn today to showcase Imaginarium designs chippies.
I created a layout using one of my fave color combos
RED /BLACK/WHITE  .
 I find these colors  so beautiful to work with for some reason.
This pic was taken on our daughter’s birthday last year while we were out celebrating .


'YOU AND ME' 






I inked the title in Versa color ink ( Red Cardinal ) and stitched it in place with the sewing machine .
The word love is inked  in Black versa color ink 
and the letter O is replaced with a small heart inked in Red Cardinal.
I  stitched the heart with white crochet cotton and  repeated this process with the small button.

My handy tip .
Lots of random stamping reduced  the starkness  from the white cardstock and I  layered the page with black and red card to continue the flow of the three colors .

  7. Fantastic projects both of them!! Really like the striking colours on the LO and I love that little box and the cool idea of the little booklets inside. Super way to use all those little bits of paper! Did you design the box yourself or is there a template for it somewhere?
