Chipboard Stacks!

I'm LOVIN' these things! They are my absolute new faves!!! I used them for several project for my craft show and thought I'd let you see the fun I've been having. We also used them in my monthly stamping class last week. You can see them here. The come in Bright and Neutral colors.

Just a little note: I've been using Mischelle Smith's tip from her blog. She uses Walnut Ink with a dauber top to ink the edges of coaster. I now do the same thing with the edges of my beloved chipboard stacks. Since I have all 8 colors, it's not too difficult to find one to blend with the paper color!

This first set of photos is a little album made from envelopes. I cut off one end so I could have pull-out pages.

The two photos below are stand-up hinged frames. For the lion on the "boy" frame, I cut out and "extra" head and placed it on top of the main image with pop dots. This created depth/interest, and allow allowed a photo to slip under the lion's head, yet still have it looking like it's overlapping.

These are desk calendars. They stand up on their own...

The photos below are calendar magnets. The top two magnets were inspired by Sarah G.

This photo doesn't show the inside, but they open to reveal Post-It notes!

It's hard to tell in these photos below, but they are mini notebooks. They only measure just over 2" across!

If you have any questions about chipboard stacks or any of these projects, just let me know!
