Seriously 2 years in a row my mom has bought me chipboard. I think I have it all! Raw, Basic Grey, adhesive, no adhesive, themed, flowers and even coasters. I have a drawer full of it and would like to use it up. Thoughts? Are the Garden Girls up to the chipboard challenge or should I just let my cat start playing with it?

I have rather more than ONE drawer full! Mostly of raw chipboard. I'd love some fresh ideas to use it as well.

Yes please!

I know a lot of ways to alter it but it still never seems to end up on my page. I like other dimensional embellishments... I don't know. But seeing things in videos seems to help me get inspired.

Altering chipboard is too much work. I use mine when I'm low on dimensional adhesive.

I would also love more ideas and motivation for using up my chipboard. I have raw, white and colored - some shapes and some letters. I also have a ton of grungeboard I need to use up. I have more than one large cubbie filled with the stuff.

I've purged some of it, but I'm pretty sure I'll never ever use up all of my chipboard stash.

Yes, new/more ideas would be great. I have slowed down in using it. I really like spraying raw chipboard with glimmer mist and now, my new favorite, Heidi's Color Shine sprays.

This is so me! I have the same drawer full of raw chipboard that I never use, because I'm too lazy to alter it when I'm in the middle of a layout. Maybe if I sat down with my pile of chipboard and all of my paints, mists, stamps, washi and whatnot, and just played, sort of batch processed them and made them into ready-to-go embellies, I would actually use them.

Hey guys! I hear you on the chipboard!! lol

I thought I'd share two fun ways I recently used some.

Today's Seeing Double video I showed how to create a fun dimensional texture on a plain chipboard tag.
Seeing Double

Then on this two page layout I covered some plain chipboard with American Crafts Glitter tape. I also think washi would be a fun easy way to spice up your plain chipboard too!
Happy Happy-Star layout

Hope that helps a tiny bit!

I just want some of it - need to get more. Chipboard became the rage while I was without a scrap room and I didn't buy any. I am SO behind!!
