Way’s to Use it Thursday…

It’s Thursday again! Can you believe how fast the weeks fly by?! This week is another rerun week for the Way’s to Use It Challenge. I’ll soon be out of a challenge and out of a job 😉 if I don’t repeat a few of the challenges. This one is one I hope you like….Chipboard!

I’m not sure why I like chipboard so much…it just seems so nice and sturdy. I love the dimension and I love texture. For today’s challenge I decided to combine my Crop-a-dile theme that I started on Sunday with the chipboard to give you some more ideas of how you can use it. If you’d like to play along, check out the challenge at WT116. Everyone is welcome…we’d love to have you play along!

Friend Tag & Gift Bucket

I’ve been trying to go through my desk and drawers and cupboards and yes, tidy the floor to get some kind of organization thing happening here. I found my Stampin Up chipboard that I had to have last summer and thought, what a shame…I need to use this more! I also found this Simply Scrappin’ paper pack that I’ve only used twice and thought I’d better use it while it was still current! It’s perfect for this time of year too…love the color combo, so fresh and fun. I decided not to make a card for a change. I wanted to have a punching good time with my chipboard so I chose this tag and bucket that I’m going to give to a friend. The tag is actually punched and set with two different types of eyelets (mini & Extra Large Designer) and also a snap in the center of the flower. For the gift bucket…I decided to punch through the metal and set it with eyelets for fun.

I’m just editing this entry back in. It seems with the crash, it took out half the article and saved the rest in drafts. I’ll be editing the instructions back in here as able. :)
