My fave chipboard projects :)

Who doesn't love chipboard?
I have it all over my studio. In file folders, in drawers, packages hanging
on hooks, alpha sets in Cropper Hopper holders. 
Man, I love chipboard. And I love to hoard it too. 
But I am getting over that tendency! I figure I might as well use it-
I can't take it with me after all!

Here are my fave projects using chipboard. Enjoy!
Love these little 'shrooms! I painted and heat embossed them with chunky powder for texture. You can see the details here. 

Joy Christmas Banner
I have been all about the banners this year! I put a LOT of detail into this one! And then my DD1 stole it for her office. Get all the details here.

A Love Beyond Measure
My DD2 and her kitty. I used multiple chipboard pieces with a variety of finishes - see 
the close-ups and details here.

You Are Such A Joy
I love this chipboard frame. I painted it and heat embossed it, then added pearls and glitter.
Check it out here. 

Creative Escape Memories
I had the absolute BEST time at Creative Escape! I got to see my good friend for a couple of days, laugh and catch up, and we got to meet some fabulous crafters and play with paper. What more would we ask for??? I wanted more than a layout in a book to remember it - so I made this to hang on the wall instead.

Shoe Manic
I bought this chippie frame YEARS ago,, and I hoarded because I couldn't bear to use it! I finally broke down and got it out for this layout. I gave it a base coat of paint, then used spray ink, and Pearlescent Liquid Acrylics. I used more chipboard for the title and the plaque it is on. Check it out here.

Love this layout. Love the colors, love the photo and the memories it brings back, love that I managed to leave some white space - no easy feat for me! Chipboard title and chipboard butterfly accent - see close-ups and more details here.

One of my top 10 layouts of all time. My DD2's college graduation - she was standing in the surf on Galveston Beach. She was so happy and carefree! The title chippie was painted, then misted, then splattered, see it here , I also used smaller pieces of chipboard around my layout to accent.
This was a 2-page layout (most of mine are, even though I may only show one page here) so here is the whole thing. 

Same camping trip as the Memory layout above - this cutie and the one above are the DDs of two of my oldest friends. I love the contrast of sparkly and matte chipboard on this layout.  See all the details here.

and last, but certainly not least, my very favorite one,,,

Cat Nap
I love this layout. I think I will get it out of the album and frame it. I love that using chipboard for my title gave it so much more presence than using alpha letters alone would have. Check it out here.

There you have it - my top 10 chipboard projects.
