I almost like this card. I’m hoping my creativity will flow better tomorrow. I think it is because I am working out of my card stash. I have a basket that is overflowing with scraps and pieces and embellishments that I have decided would work better on cards than on my scrapbook pages. Products used: KI Memories paper, Making Memories metal-rimmed tag. I used watercolor pencils to color in the gift. Brads, stamped image, ribbon, and metal mesh are unknown.

We just made it back from Disneyland last weekend and before we left I was determined to finish my book from our last vacation to Walt Disney World in (gulp) 2005! Alas, it is finished and here they are. Be on the lookout for new layouts from our recent trip to Disneyland!
I found it was easiest and quickest for this project to use a set of coordinating papers for most of the pages. You can see how I did that below. The paper is a retired CTMH paper pack.
For a standout title, try using large monogram letters for your entire title. I used Basic Grey undressed chipboard monograms for these layouts. (Note: chipboard that is plain and unfinished is often called undressed, bare, or naked.) For extra letters, you can trace on chipboard and cut them out. Next, I traced the letters on cardstock, cut out, embellished, and glued to the chipboard. Be sure to embellish the letters before adhering to the chipboard. The ways to embellish these monograms are endless. You can use buttons, brads, eyelets, snaps, rivets, charms, ribbon, fiber, clips, staples, tags, diecuts, etc. You can also use techniques such as stamping, stitching, inking, distressing, doodling, etc. My favorite adhesive when using chipboard is Liquid Glass by CTMH. There is a bit of drying time involved but it will hold forever!
