More chipboard goodness….

(I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of playing with these chipboard items!!)

Lori and Love Is In the Details are hosting the Spring Crop this weekend and I thought I’d show you some of the items I brought along to display at the crop - to show the versatility of these chipboard words.  They’re not just for cards!

This cute little 6″x6″ canvas has a white spray painted chipboard phrase centered on a heart shape that was created with masking, stencils and pink, peach and red tinted molding paste.  It was approximately here where I discovered how much I actually love making multi-media messes!!


The next two chipboard mini albums also use some stencils and molding paste, some inking, heat embossing, washi-ing, spray painting, and embellishing!  The chipboard title on this first one was spray painted gold, then covered with Ultra-Thick-Embossing-Enamel and while it was still hot, I dropped glitter and micro beads into the UTEE and let them set.  (VERY fun and cool!)



The “Life is Good” sentiment was smeared with three shades of InkaGold.  Now there’s some fun stuff, lemme tell ya!!


And, you might remember seeing something similar to this a few months back?  The method shown below is quite a bit easier to create.  Just buy chipboard, adhere to canvas board, spray paint white.  I don’t actually think it can get any easier without asking your mom to make it for you!


“Love you for like ever” turned out to be my favorite project!  It consists of layers of tissue paper, dictionary paper, gesso, stamping, washi tape, covered and embellished with random bits of corrugated paper, metal and paper flowers, felt leaves, and cheesecloth.  I can see using this chipboard on a layout as a title as well!



And finally, a couple of layouts using the chipboard titles!  This first one was spray painted with white and gold spray paints because I couldn’t decide which I would like better.  And I’m kinda happy with the results of my inability to decide!


The last LO uses a piece of bare-naked chipboard for the title.  Frankly, it’s the form of chipboard I like very best!  Just something about the raw, organic look of it pleases me greatly.


I’m having a great time at my very first Love is in the Details crop and I’m so happy to be meeting so many of you blog readers for the first time!

Thanks again, for stopping by!

Creating with Sami Part 2

Hello I am back today to share with you a couple of Samantha’s finished tags….which she is so excited to share with everyone!  Before I get to that I want to thank everyone that left a comment, Samantha has read them all and really appreciated all the wonderful comments! :)

With her creative juices flowing I sent Sami to my scrap space and told her to pick out some dies or stamps that she wanted to use to finish up her tags…while I did some other things around the house.  When I came back to check on her and see what she had picked out I was not surprised to see that she had picked a pile of Tim Holtz Dies to use.  She is such a momma’s girl! :)

Her next task was to go through my paper scraps and pick out the papers she wanted to use with the dies.  Since it was a school night I told her to pick her two favorite tags to work on, here is her first tag.


She selected the Tim Holtz Apothecary Bottles, both the bigz and movers & shapers dies.  As you can see she loves to ink everything…wonder where she learned to do that?! LOL  To finish off the bottles she made these labels using some Graphic 45 stamps, the Honey & Almond stamp was her favorite in the set.


On her second tag she wasn’t quite sure what to add and asked for a little help from me to figure it out.  I knew she wanted to keep the bird as a highlight of the tag so I suggested a wordy stamp would be best…


The Tim Holtz Mini Clipboard die was the perfect addition making it look like it’s holding the quote on her tag.  With the red bird she wanted to pull some more red into the words so I helped her ‘ink’ the words using Tim Holtz Distress Markers.


It doesn’t show well in the photo but the clip was cut from a metallic cardstock, which Sami sanded and inked to make it look ‘old’.  The final touch was stamping the flying birds in a lighter color as if they are behind the words.

Samantha is so happy with her tags and plans to take them to school tomorrow to share with her classmates!  I will have to think about a way for her to display them in her room once she has them all finished.

Thank you for joining us today and letting us share our Mom & Daughter creative adventure with you!

The big spring crop is this weekend, if you are coming I hope you will join me for a quick demo of something new to Love Is In The Details!
