Family Fun ideas!

As we finish off this month of November we're going to share some more amazing projects created by our Design Team using the new Family Fun collection.  A collection that we hope you have really enjoyed!

"Movie Night"

Hello Imaginisce fans! It’s Monique again with another “Family Fun” layout. The more I use this collection the more I love it!! Every time I discover more fun details, embellishments and thus possibilities. For today’s blog post I decided to use the cinema theme (“matinee” sheet). I had these crazy “selfie” photos of my youngest and I wearing 3D cinema glasses. We love to go to the cinema (not only because I love children’s movies, but above all because I love seeing my youngest’s delight when he watches the film) and so I’ve got quite a couple of photos like these to scrap. This collection was just what I was waiting for!

I started with one of the wonderful Snag ‘em stamps belonging to this collection: “movie”. Not long ago on the Creating Keepsakes blog I saw an example of a stamp being used on a piece of burlap and I knew I wanted to try that technique too. I think it’s awesome how it turned out! I love the extra texture the burlap adds to the page and I love the beautiful crisp image that I managed to stamp!  

Next I wanted to try some of the “mysterious” Imaginisce milk paints (well, mysterious to me at least) and chose the yellow one. I shook a bit of the dry powder in a cup and added a bit of water (I used one part of powder on one part of water) and used a paint brush to stir it a bit, so the powder dissolved. Then I chose a Tim Holtz stencil and got started. I love love love how this turned out!!! It dried pretty quickly (I did use my heat tool a bit) and when I rubbed it afterwards it didn’t come off or anything! It’s awesome!

A while ago a magazine asked me to scrap a layout with a “bold line of embellishments”. This threw me a bit, as I had never done this before. But of course I gave it a try and I really loved the result! So when I saw the many fabulous die-cuts and stickers in this collection I knew straight away what I was going to do: create a layout with a “bold line of embellishments”! Apart from the die-cuts and stickers provided, I also created a couple of brads myself (using Imaginisce’s awesome I-Top tool) as I just wanted to use more of those awesome “b-side” designs. I’m in love the with black and white chequered paper! I really love the end result and I can’t wait to hear what you think of it! 

 Again, I just can’t wait to see what you’ll do with this collection!! If you use it, don’t forget to share your project on our facebook page so we can admire it too! 

Have a great day and thank you so much for visiting Imaginisce’s blog today!
