Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Chipboard Everywhere

This hop is a circle; if you have just started simply continue until you make your way back here; if you have already started, you should be coming from Janet McCormick.

Monogram Layout by Wendy Kessler
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted: Key to My Heart Paper Packet (retired), Cardstock (Sunset and Juniper), Dimensional Elements Monogram “S” (retired), Natural Hemp (retired), Opaques Mocha (retired), Paper Flowers, and ShinHan Barely Beige Marker. Very roughly followed at sketch from 52Sketches52Weeks.

I really dug into my stash for this one, notice all the retired items I used!  I haven’t used chipboard in awhile but one of my favorite things used to be to embellish monograms on a page so that’s exactly what I did here.  I still like the look.

Now hop on over to Terry Morrow!

I have to say that I absolutely LOVE these tweezers!  I use them for small embellishments as mentioned in the video.  They are the best!
