Use Your Chipboard UYSBH

Do you have lots of chipboard hoarded hiding in your stash? As I was contemplating this next layout, I stumbled upon one of the first packages of dimensional elements I had purchased...hearts. It was featured with long ago retired Topstitch kit. I like these dimensional elements because you can sponge ink on them, like I did, stamp directly to them, or layer paper on them. There's much more that you can do, but I touched on just a few that make these chipboard elements so wonderful.

If you have come here from Katy's blog, you are on the right track. Katie creates beautiful artwork, and I have had the pleasure of watching her grow artistically since even before I became a consultant.

I have been wanting to create this Wild About Love layout for some time now and I thought it would be perfect for the baby album I'm working on. 2 foxes meet, fall in love, and then along comes baby fox. Cute, right? 

The Wild About Love left page was scraplifted with a few changes from the S/S 2014 Idea Book. I used Reflections pattern #1 for the right page (title topper) but made a few adjustments to the pattern to best mirror the left page. I thought this would be a great February/March layout for the baby album. I think this is one that I may recreate for my son's album. I love it that much, and if you haven't yet purchased our Paper Fundamentals cardstock, what are you waiting for? It's awesome!
