Welcome back everyone! How is your week going? Mine is going great! My kids went back to school today! Woo hoo! With the first day of school comes the posed photos on the front porch, with backpacks and lunchboxes. You know I took a lot of those this morning! And, I can't wait to scrapbook them using today's Product Spotlight, Off To School Chipboard Elements and Chipboard Banners. These fun chipboad shapes, have a retro vibe, and are adhesive-backed.
Take look at what Pocket Chicks, Lisa Saunders, Charity Hassel, and Lisa Andrews created with these cool embellishments.
Chalkboard by Lisa Saunders
Lisa says, "I decided that my son needs a memo board to help him stay organised for school. He's forever running back in the house for a book in the morning or always asking me what is planned after school. So I bought a very cheap chalkboard with a wooden frame and I've turned it into a memo board for him. The new Off to School collection is perfect for this project. I really like the fact that it's suitable for both boys and girls. I started by covering the front of the frame with strips of the patterned papers and then used the Chipboard Elements and Chipboard Banners to decorate. I've used a chipboard pencil on either side of the frame to attach twine to so they hold the piece of chalk one side and the chalk sponge the other. I've also split the chalkboard up so he has a section for school and section for play. I love how well the pieces of chipboard stick. I feel no worries that my heavy handed little boy will knock these off : )I am now hoping this board may help to make the school routine smoother in the mornings."
Enjoy Every Moment by Charity Hassel
Charity explains, "One way to show off the great chipboard in this collection is to make it the center of your project. I did this by placing the apple chipboard piece on the center of my rubon design. I added two more pieces of circle chipboard off to the side to finish the look and also to use the rule of 3 on my card."
Back to School by Lisa Andrews
Lisa says, "Not only do the Fancy Pants Off to School Chipboard Banners come with four great banner styles, they also include several little school themed images on the page. These little images fit perfectly inside of the banner pieces. They make adding some texture and interest quick and simple!"
Okay, so now I'm even more excited to create with these chipboard pieces! How about you? Aren't they cute? Want a chance to get your hands on some for yourself? Come back again on Friday for a CHALLENGE and a chance to win some Off To School goodies!!!
