Hi there, today I’d like to show you how I’ve gone wild with chipboard frames! I’ve used the Simple Vintage Country Harvest collection and the coordinating 6x8 Sn@p! Flipbook.
As I’m sure you know by now, I love to decorate the front covers of my binders & flipbooks. Here I’ve used one of the chipboard frames around one of the elements from the 12x12 collection kit.
Layers, layers and more layers!!…I’ve tucked leaves from the ‘Harvest bits & pieces’ behind the frame and then layered up a chipboard piece, with a layered sticker on top of that. I’ve also included brads and enamel dots.
You can clearly see the layers here, you’ll also notice how I’ve actually covered the ‘pretty bit’ of the chipboard frame. Throughout this project you’ll find I’ve done that on the majority of the frames.
On this full page I’ve layered up the corner of this chipboard frame with tags and tickets from the bits & pieces pack.
What’s so fun with the flipbooks is you can still easily add additional pages, here I’ve made a flip page. Now you’ll see why I often cover areas of the chipboard frames…I do it so I can get them to fit exactly where I want them too. This particular frame was designed to lie horizontally, but I wanted it to fit vertically…never be afraid to make what you’re working with adapt to your needs!
Inside the flip page I’ve used some of the journaling elements and also some foam stickers.
Again with this chipboard frame, it was designed to sit horizontally, but I had different ideas!! Easy! Just cover up the designs with layers of prettiness!
I hope this blog has shown you how easily you can have fun with fabulous frames and lots of luscious layers.
