Chip Chip Hooray! Chipboard Camp, May 30th & 31st Additional Projects!

GEDC2118 Here are Sneak Peaks of the 3 other projects we will be making at the "Chip Chip Hooray!" Chipboard Camp at my house on Friday, May 30th, 6:30 p.m., and Saturday, May 31st, 10:00 a.m. or 2 p.m! I don't want to spoil your anticipation by showing you the whole projects!

This project uses the Chunky Sprinkles from the Occasions Mini catalog! Can you guess how I got the glitter applied in the star shapes? Come to this Camp and find out how!

GEDC2117 For this project you will apply Afternoon Tea Designer Series Paper to the chipboard flower using our Anywhere Glue Sticks, then sand with our sanding block to smooth the edges.

GEDC2120 You will be embossing with Versamark and our white embossing powder on this gorgeous project!


There's still room to sign up for any of the three sessions! Call me at 618-237-6281 or email me at to RSVP!

Eight Pocket Gift book!

Pocket card for web This is NOT a project for my "Chip Chip Hooray! Stamp Camp, but it COULD be a project at a June or July hostess party! This cute and EASY little 8-pocket card/booklet is just adorable and I promised some of my customers at a party earlier this month that I would put pictures and directions on my blog. I've been a bad, bad, girl and haven't gotten it on here until now, but I hope you all will forgive me as I've had a son graduate from college, a son graduate from high school, made a trip to Nashville, TN, to pick up my youngest daughter, Alisa, from Bible College, plus we are celebrating Maddie Kate, my oldest granddaughter's 7th birthday this month as well as our dear son-in-law Tony turned 30 this month! By September we will have THREE 30 year-olds in our family, Tony, our son-in-law Johnny, and our daughter, Jessica!

To make this book:

Start with a 12x12 sheet of Designer Series Paper. I used Afternoon Tea from the Occasions mini for this sample.

Score paper at 2", 6" and 10" across one side.

Turn paper 1/4' turn, score at 3", 6", 9".

Fold up 2" score lines and secure at ends of paper with SNAIL adhesive. Cut center 6" score line up 9 inches, leaving the final 3" scoreline uncut.

Accordian-fold along 3", 6", and 9" score lines. Fold uncut 3" scoreline. Secure bottom ends with SNAIL, then accordian-fold along previous folds to create book.

Punch holes through all layers with the Crop-a-dile, then tie ribbon through holes. Embellish as desired.

If these directions are clear as mud, email me at or call me at 618-237-6281 and I will answer your questions or we can set a date for a party so I can show you how to make this project!

Chip Chip Hooray! Chipboard Camp, May 30th & 31st!

Calendar for webWhat is Chipboard? What do you DO with Chipboard? Chipboard used to SCARE me, it was just gray, blank, and well, blank! But now that I've played with it a little bit, I'm not scared of it anymore! You can stamp it, sponge it, daub it, emboss it, cover it with Designer Series paper, sand it, then put it on cards, scrapbook pages, and create lots of great 3-D projects with it! In the next few days I will be posting the projects we will be making at my next stamp camp on May 30 and 31st, just call it my "Chip Chip Hooray!" Camp! We will be making 4 cool chipboard projects and this is the first of the four! It is a free-standing chipboard coaster calendar/picture frame. You will use cardstock, Designer Series paper, ribbon, punches, stamps, and the "Crop-a-dile" to create this project! The class is $10 for the 4 projects, so contact me today to sign up!
Check back often to see the rest of these class projects!
