Shopping our Stash #165 - Chipping Away!


This week at Shopping our Stash we want to see you use chipboard - if you don't have any in your stash, you can always die-cut your own out of cardboard (cereal boxes work particularly well!). For some reason, although I have plenty of chipboard, it's not something I reach for much. The piece I used on my card...I've had the package for at least 2 years, and I pull it out now & then, stare at it, and put it away. Then I realized that one of the banner pieces would work well for a Grumpy Cat Hat if I trimmed it down a little:


Supplies: Cat & sentiment from Zap Pow!; Spectrum Noir markers; paper & stickers from DCWV; chipboard banner & star from Fancy Pants; home made enamel dots

Ready to chip away at your stash? (snort) Check out the design team creations & join us before next Monday, August 25th!

OMG, I love this guy! He's perfection. I had to look up the company, and even though I don't do digital much any more, I might need him.

Oh, and I had to laugh at your "taking out your chipboard, looking at it, and putting it away" line. SO TRUE! I'm glad you used some of it. :)
