For the love of chipboard

Imaginarium Designs has a call up for new designers to join their team and how could anyone resist their fun and creative designs.
Do you remember when chipboard first hit the market, we are all so precious and dainty with it, worrying about getting a crease or wrinkle.
Oh how we have left those days behind. Now we like to bend them and chop them up to rearrange into different shapes and angles.
Some of my favorite ways to use chipboard shapes is to add a textural statement. Glitter, texture paste, fabric and more.
The girls at Imarinarium asked for a post of our favorite chipboard projects. It was kind of hard to choose just a few as it seems like not a card, altered book, ATC or wall mural misses the opportunity for a little chipboard decorations.
In honour of the love of chipboard I am hosting a ramble prize give away for folks who can correctly identify where you have seen these projects before.  Did you see them at a show,  or in the pages of a magazine or on my blog, or a on line gallery? 
Leave us a message about the projects you liked best and where they have been seen so we can draw a prize the week of the big announcement.
Updated with our lucky winner.......
Diana of misssusgmoments was picked at random by the cat, Congrats Diana we will have a parcel of fun chipboard shapes out to you in the mail.  Thank you for everyone who played along.
