Christmas Snap Shots- Imaginarium Designs Dec Theme

Hi Everyone, Great to see you dropping by to check out my Imaginarium Designs Christmas Inspiration Layout.  It's hard to believe my grand daughter is about to turn 6 next month. Here are some photos of her loving having a swing on "Nanny's swing" in our backyard, she loved swinging not at all scared of going high. 

Items I used included:

  • 12" x 12" white cardstock
  • Lindy's Stamp Gang Flat Pablio 'Risso's Rowdy Red'
  • Indigo Blue Mega flakes 'Autumn Blaze'
  • Kaisercraft 'St Nicholas' Collection and my Christmas paper stash.
  • Versa Ink 'Pinecone', 'Cardinal' and 'Bisque'
  • Metallic Melts 'Glistening Snow' and 'Gold Nugget'
  • Black wire thread
  • White with gold thread
  • Poinsettia flowers- Ultimate crafts.
  • StazOn black ink
  • Matt Gel medium
  • Stampendous Script stamp 'Vintage Note'

Imaginarium Designs Chipboard used included:

branches and leaves IDDN0013

Family snap shots IDW0063

21 stars in a board EDS0076
Merry christimas for cards 4 in a board. IDP0010
Christmas baubles on board IDT0007









  1. Laying a variety of stars on the paper as masks I sprayed the first 1/3 of the page with 'Risso's Rowdy Red". 
  2.  After removing the stars I stamped some script with StazOn black ink over the area.
  3. I placed carefully a smear of gel medium over the section I wanted to put Mega flakes to add the Christmas shine to my page. 


  1.  'Baubles' were covered in Christmas paper from my stash, the tops were embossed using 'Gold Nugget' Metallic Melts and Black wire thread tied to the top.
  2. 'Family Snap Shots' were inked with 'Pinecone' Versa ink and then the 'Snap' was embossed with 'Gold nugget'
  3. 'Merry Christmas' was inked with 'Bisque' Versa ink and then 'Gold nugget' embossed
  4. 'Branches and leaves' was inked with 'Cardinal' Versa ink and then embossed with 'Glistening Snow'


  1. Layering the die-cuts, chipboard and flowers until happy.
  2. Placing the front photo which has the frame glued to it onto a piece of cardboard lifts it up to provide depth to your layout
  3.  Then the layout is finished with the white with gold thread around and under the frame.
