My post at the 2Crafty blog went live yesterday.
 
As soon as I saw the Circular Panel, I knew those round openings would be perfect for housing accents.  The Circular Panel comes like this:
 

If you're like me, you have jars and jars of buttons gathering dust, so that's what I decided I'd use with this chipboard element. One of the wonderful things about 2Crafty Chipboard is that you can cut it and use parts of it, so that a single piece can go a long way. I scrap 8 x 8,  so this feature makes it easy to tailor the chipboard to my smaller-sized pages.


I painted the chipboard with white acrylic paint. I love the look of white on white. 


I adore the font of the Happy Loopy Font word--so fun and fanciful!


I used a couple of arrows from the Assorted Arrows Set to hold the beginning of my title. This is an awesome set to have,  you get 30 chipboard arrows on one sheet!



I used some 2Crafty Chipboard on some other projects I recently made, which you might have seen on my blog.  Here's a page I made for CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration, using this Case File.

and this Creative Scrappers sketch:




I used an arrow from the Assorted Arrows Set. I used white embossing powder to give it a textured look.


On the quadrant below, I used pieces from Gears and Giant Gears.  I painted the red and blue gears to match my palette and used clear embossing powder. The gold one was coated with American Crafts Zing gold embossing powder, which gave it a perfect glittery finish to match the letters I used on my layout.


The "Hey You" speech bubble is from the Word Bubble set, which comes with six fun pieces.  I used yellow embossing powder on this piece.


 
I chose to use the chipboard raw on the following page, which I also made for CSI:
 
 
I tucked a piece from the Giant Gears collection behind my photo. The thickness of 2Crafty chipboard is just perfect for layering. It gives great dimension without adding too much bulk. I used a text stamp on one of the trendy chevrons from the Chevron Bits (another great set to get--it has 46 pieces on one sheet!) for added interest.


Here's a look at one more CSI page I created using 2Crafty chipboard. I just love the film strip piece tht I used below. It's from the Film Strips-Medium set.  Each set comes with two film strips, which you can actually double if you cut it in half and tuck it between layers, like I did.
 
 
I coated the chipboard with copper colored embossing powder to give it a great shiny, textured look.

 
Thank you so much for stopping by and reading about my pages. For those who are asking where can you find this gorgeous chipboard in the United States, there is one shop, The Scrapbook Diaries, in New York, which carries some of the products. If you inquire about ordering, perhaps they might carry more.

 I'll be back in May to share some more work with this awesome chipboard!
