Blogger's Challenge - week 43

This week's blogger's challenge was to use chipboard.


I do have a confession, though! I have been so busy this week taking care of other things that I haven't stamped barely at all. This book wasn't made this week but I haven't shared it here yet and it does qualify for this week's challenge. Now don't get me wrong....I know challenges aren't meant to find things that you have done already that fit the challenge....we are to create new things. Honestly....I wish I had time this week to fulfill that challenge. If I get time this weekend I will create something new and post it. But for now I have this to show you:


This is the book I use to keep the technique and card folds that I teach all my club members. They also have their own version of a technique book. One club is using the retired chipboard ATC album and my other club made books out of these chipboard board basics from Stampin' Up!. All of my club members have seen this book but all of you wonderful blogging friends have not. That's why I still decided to share it with you.


Quick run down....have tons of stuff to accomplish today too. Covered in fall flowers designer series papers. Flowers are from Pretties Kit held together by build a brad. Scalloped semi circle was done with colluzzle and 3/16th inch corner rounder. Sentiment "inspire" is stamped on confetti cream with jumbo outline alphabet. I colored the letters in with stampin' write markers or a blender pen (soft sky). My ring holes are adorned with jumbo eyelets set with a crop o dile. Ribbon tie was made with round tab punch and there are various stampin' up ribbons adorning the rings that hold the book together. (some of the ribbons are retired...I wanted to have the color and texture of different ribbons......)


There you have it! Hopefully you will get some more to look at this weekend.....

I thought being a stay at home mom would give me more time.....not the case at all! hehehe!


Happy Stampin' All!!!!!!
