We are so excited to bring this week’s challenge to you because we just KNOW you’ll love it as much as we do!
Chipboard has, and always will be, a staple of any crafter’s stash. Kristin has created this week’s challenge to help you use up that stash! She asked the Design Team to use at least 4 pieces chipboard. They all did an awesome job with this challenge so let’s take a look!
“Best Ever” by Emily Adams:
What a fitting title for Emily’s page! She chose gold chipboard for her title, along with adorable chipboard buttons tied with baker’s twine!

The deep red of the Sequin Applique adds a bit of elegance to her page about Afternoon Tea at the Grand Floridian. Just so lovely!

“So Many Toys” by Heather Ribble:
Heather created this colorful page and we are in LOVE! For her chipboard element, Heather chose to make a banner for the top left corner of her page using chipboard pieces and baker’s twine. So CUTE!
The fun Red Star Washi along the bottom of her page from Scraps & Ink Crafts is an excellent visual “base” for her row of photos.

We also love Heather’s adorable Toy Friends silhouette created with a Cutting Die and blue cardstock. So cute!
“Magic” by Vicki Von Richter:
Vicki created the perfect space for her photo and chipboard pieces by using bright yellow ink to create a fun and vibrant focal point. This technique immediately draws the eye right to the photo of her smiling kiddos! She also used a fun Flat-Back Mickey from Scraps & Ink Crafts’ “Bits & Pieces” in the top right corner of her photo to balance out her fun chipboard cluster on the left.
“Pirate” by Kristin Fougeron:
Kristin chose several fantastic chipboard pieces for her page. Her chipboard alphas that she used for her title are so fun! Mickey Shaker, Facets, Mickey Flat Back, and Washi can all be found at Scraps & Ink Crafts.

Like Vicki, Kristin used her cute little flat-back Mickey on the top corner of her photo as a way to balance out the title piece in the opposite diagonal corner.
“Jasmine & Aladdin” by Natalie Strand- left side:
Natalie used bits of chipboard to create dimension directly on top of the pockets in her lovely layout about meeting Jasmine and Aladdin in EPCOT’s Morocco Pavilion.

“Wild Boy” by Lacey Robin:
Lacey’s use of this chipboard alpha makes us smile! This has got to be the best use of a “ransom” style alphabet that we have ever seen!
“UR Awesome” by Jackie Ashton:
How fun is this page of Jackie and her son meeting Donald in Disneyland Paris! Love the red/white/blue colors and the misting done with a heart stencil for her background is just lovely.
Now it’s your turn to play along for your chance to win authentic Disney merchandise:
Use at least 4 pieces from your CHIPBOARD stash to create something truly magical and “Disney-inspired.” Participants will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge and upload it to the gallery and forum to receive one entry into the monthly drawing.
As always, even though we are a “tad” partial to scrapbooking, we also love to see a variety of craft projects, so sky’s the limit on what you can create for this challenge!

Deadline to enter is Friday, March 4th 11:59 PM (MDT).
Good luck and have a magical day!
