HUGE selection of chipboard!

This month, the design team's task was to showcase the GCD Studios ChipArt Tool. I love creating my own custom
embellishments, so using the ChipArt Tool is right up my alley.

I started with the design of the background of my layout and then
figured out where I wanted my embellishments and decided on shapes and
sizes. GCD Studios has such a HUGE selection of chipboard it was easy to find a pieces perfect
for my layout.

I de-bossed a butterfly on a smaller chipboard shape that had been
sprayed with a little bit of water. After it dried, I simply selected
a pink acrylic paint to match my layout. I used a mixture of
glossy Mod Podge and white paint to highlight the de-bossed image,
creating a fun, custom embellishment.

I also wanted my title to have a "home", so I then de-bossed a lager
frame shape with flourishes and painted it green and then repeated the
white paint and Mod Podge finish. I love how this element
creates balance for the green color around the page.

Here's the layout in it's entirety.

I hope you are inspired to see how the ChipArt Tools and many chipboard designs can "rock" your
pages. :)


  1. Yes I am inspired. I was after the blog hop spotlighting the tool and the jewelry. I just need to find it local so I can use it. I have tons of chipboard to tap on.

  2. I wish GCD wasn't so hard to find locally, I always fall in love with everything I see! The ChipArt tool sounds like it would be right up my alley!! LOL!
