Chalk It Up Club Layouts...

Chalk It Up probably is one of my favorite of ALL TIME paper packets from CTMH!!!  The colors are divine and the chalkboard-type pages are so trendy right now BUT will also be trendy in years to come when my little ones are going through their scrapbooks reliving the memories that will be put on these pages!

Each month I meet with some local gals and we do some layouts.  Last month we worked on Chalk It Up and they were sooooo happy with the way these turned out!  And...2 of the ladies don't even have school-age children but these pages are versatile enough for them to use them for other thing!

Here are some close-ups using the Chalk It Up Complements...they are dimensional elements (chipboard for you non-CTMH readers)...the big circle was the negative space left over from one of the DE's...I cut around it and used as an open circle!
The image below is a close-up of the stamp set that comes with the Chalk It Up WOTG...I've used this stamp on several other projects and I LOVE how easy it is to stamp in different colors, cut out the images and pop-dot them using Thin 3D-Foam Tape...

Here is the other layout...
I cut the doodle B&T so that the word "NICE" would show and added the arrows so whatever picture I put in there will reflect back to this thought...

#tbt CTMH Style - NOTE pad...

#tbt to 2009 or 2010...can't remember...I made this NOTE pad for my application to teach at one of the CTMH Conventions...

I love the look of the doodling around each Dimensional Element Letter...I'm gonna have to incorporate that into some more projects!

Here's a peek at the inside...

UYSBH - All about Chipboard...

Welcome to this month's Use Your Stash Blog Hop (UYSBH) featuring Chipboard!!!

If you've come from Terry's Blog, you're on the right track...keep hopping around 'till you've seen all 6 Blogs.

My card is truly a use your stash because this card is actually from 2010...

I stamped a bunch of Dimensional Elements Stars then glued them onto some Crystal Blue (retired) Cardstock.  I added a darker blue (Pacifica) for my sentiment and some Sunset ribbon and clear buttons backed with Sunset Cardstock.  A shimmer brad is in the center of the buttons to add some bling!

Thanks for stopping by...hop on over to Casandra's Blog and see what she has to share using Chipboard.

Hope we inspired you to USE YOUR STASH this month!!!

SOUS Fall Blessings...

Welcome to the ANYTHING AUTUMN Die-Cut Challenge for Stuck On U Sketches...

I had SOOOOO MUCH fun with this layout!!!  I've been watching a couple of my fellow SOUS & PPPR Design Team girls and their layouts are always so AWESOME so I decided I was gonna give it a try!

If you're a regular reader, you know that I'm a pretty CAS kinda girl outside of embellishments and distressing so all this layering and clutter was hard for me but I persevered!

I put this layout in my Designed Decor Colonial White Shadow Box for display...sometimes I love that it doesn't have a glass, sometimes I wish it did...
Here are some close-ups...
It's hard to see in the shadow box but there is a strip of Bronze Shimmer Trim across the top of the layout...LOVE that little extra bling!

Used lots of 3D-Foam Tape...Thin and Regular to get the layered look...

Don't forget to head on over to the Anything Autumn Challenge and check out what the other DT Members created AND play along!!!

Products Used:
Various Cardstock and B&T (all CMTH)
