Using Chipboard

Have you tried using chipboard?  It's the heavy duty cardboard packaging on some products, and it's a great resource for paper crafters!!  This week at Just Add Ink, the challenge is to add chipboard!! You need to click here and see the fantastic ideas the design team have come up with!!

I've used the chipboard with the Word Bubble framelits (I had to run it through the Big  Shot a few times for the chipboard to cut - not sure how good that was for the framelit - sigh) - but gee I loved how it turned out!!  I also used the burlap ribbon with one of the word bubble framelits too - that looks so cool!!  I put the burlap onto adhesive sheet first before I cut it with the framelit - so it would stay together once it was cut!!

This is a real Big Shot project - with the card itself being made with the Oval accents die in the Big Shot too!!


  1. Well der I don't know why I didn't think of it but thanks SO much for the tip to back my burlap with adhesive BEFORE putting it through the BS. I learnt the hard way lol.

    Cute project! Love those little framelits.

  2. What a great, fun, card Julia! I love how you've cut the burlap using a Word Bubble framelit; very clever. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week!

  3. There's some fabulous ideas on your card! Thanks for playing along at Just Add Ink this week.

  4. Love all the shapes and textures you have used. A great fun way to use chipboard. Chantell JAI

  5. Fabulous card - love the stamping on the chipboard. I am amazed you were able to cut the chipboard using framelits! The Word Bubble looks great too!

  6. This is so fun! Love your little speech bubble. Thanks for joining us over at Just Add Ink :)
