My Product Pick For This Week




I have a habit of getting "stuck" using some products over and over again. They aren't necessarily the newest products on the market- but for some reason I connect with them and really enjoy using them on my layouts. In fact, my layouts feel naked without them!!

I am really into CHIPBOARD lately. It is so versatile and fun to use! Whether it be letters, numbers, flowers or flourishes... I love it all!! I usually cover chipboard with coordinating papers or I paint them. You can ink them, distress them, sand the edges... whatever the layout calls for!
My favorites to use right now would have to be FANCY PANTS DESIGNS & THICKERS by American Crafts.

Fancy Pants has these great flourishes that I love to use on my layouts. I love to paint them and add glossy accent, for a shine. They also have a variety of flowers, alphabets and plenty of other great chipboard to choose from! I find that I tend to use at least one element of Fancy Pants chipboard on every layout I make right now.

I think that THICKERS have probably been out there for awhile, but I found them for the first time about a month ago. Since then, I use them regularly! They come in a huge variety of colors, textures and fonts! They are the perfect size for titles and/or subtitles on your layouts!! Try them out if you haven't already :)
