This is a DT Project for Discount Paper Crafts. All of my Christmas themed projects were made using products from Cathie's store. She has it all! I really loved this Nutcracker Sweet Paper! I made these for my scrappy besties, we did a little ornament swap, so they are all different to suit their personal tastes and likes :) Big hugs ya'll!

Imaginarium Designs DT Call

Here are my top 10 favorite projects using and incorporating chipboard. In no particular order :)
Altered Bubble Gum Machine
I used chipboard frames, chandelier, and dressform. The chandelier and frame have been crackled.

Altered Clock
I used chipboard keys and a chipboard telephone. Both have been misted with diff colors.

Altered Book Box Mixed Media
I used a lot of chipboard gears, window, clock, and hinges. All have been misted and gessoed.

Altered Canvas Heart Mixed Media
I used a chipboard frame. It has been crackle painted and misted.
Shabby Chic Configurations Box
I used a chipboard clock, flourish, and filigree heart. All have been gessoed and misted.
Altered Printers Tray
I used lots of chippies on here... keys, hinges, gears, letters, and chipboard die cuts.
Most have been covered with papers and painted.

Hand Crafted Hot Air Balloon
I used 2 hot air balloon chipboard pieces and traced the rest onto paper and cut them out to make this 3D hot air balloon.
Hand Crafted Top Hat
I used a chipboard light post and chipboard die cuts to decorate this snowlady top hat :)
Romantic Altered Clock
I am a huge fan of clocks :) Can you tell? Lol.
I used chipboard numerals and a chipboard chandelier. They have been painted with Shimmerz and heat set until the paint bubbled up to create a very textured effect.

Mixed Media Layout
I just recently started doing layouts, and i am smitten! They are so fun. I used a chipboard frame for the focal point and a chipboard key dangling down. All have been heavily misted.
Thank you so much for viewing my submission! I wish everyone the best of luck! Hugs! Miranda :)
