The possibilities with this tool are just endless

This month we are highlighting the fabulous Chip Art Tool! The possibilities with this tool are just endless. I have tried many different ways in using this tool and have been pleasantly surprised. I tried a new technique with using the tool this month and was quite impressed with the end result.





I used the Chip Art tool as the chipboard stars that are placed at the top and bottom of the layout. I was looking for another way to tie in the heart chip art "stamp" when I noticed the chipboard alphabets stickers I had used on my layout.

Before pounding away on my title though, I first tried it out on a different alpha to see what the effect would be. It gave it a very nice textured look that completely finished out the layout! And one little tip - if you do try this out, make sure to lay your title out in the place you want it on your layout. When I first tried out my practice letter, I just placed in on the chip art block. Let's just say, that it didn't come up in one piece ;-) So, make sure it is where you want it before "stamping" it!








Another great way to use the Chip Art Tool!
