Just a bit of Cardboard.....

Not all of us have stores close by and sometimes they are not
even open at the odd hours of the night that we scrap so.....
sometimes grabbing something that is laying around and creating 
something fun and memorable with it is both rewarding and really cheap!! 

We asked the DT to come up with some fun projects
using old pieces of cardboard that they have laying around 
somewhere on their projects and pages and we think you are going 
to really love the ideas they came up with for you today!!!

Baseball Snack Tray by Sandy Ang
This cardboard tray would amaze anyone if you put these
out for a baseball playoff or even a baseball themed party!
The base is made from our Baseball Diecut and cardboard and then
Sandy cut out holes and decorated cute cups to put lots
and lots of yummy snacks in for the party goers!!!

supplies: Tags BB009, Chipboard BB014, Stickers BB012,
Die Cut for the Base is BB01
"Cool" by Petra Offrell
I loved using cardboard as a base for my page.  I painted it with some
acrylic paint mixed with water to get a white wash look.
Then I attached a lot of my embellishments 
using machine stitching . It is so, so easy on cardboard.

"The Big Adventure" by Alicia Barry
 The picture is from my son's first camping trip 
with his Grandparents (he was so excited). I layered lots
of pieces from the Camping collection and a tag for journaling and then
 I tore and inked a piece from a cardboard box to use as a photo mat.
I also cut the inside from the die cut paper to be left with a frame
for the outside edge of the page.

 "At 1" by Jona Panessa
For this page Jona incorporated lots of different 
pieces from lots of our collections to show you how
fun it is to use all the scraps that you have and how 
all the colors work together really great!!

supplies: GC008, BB008, GP488, BGP 211, cardboard,

"Big Boy Bed" by Sarah Mullanix
Sarah had such a great idea to cut the chipboard into
a star and ink it, then layer it and then she covered 
stickpins with stars and used them for her title. 

Supplies used: 12x12 Paper:,#GC008, #GC009

a reoccurring role on a NBC series? We are so proud of you,

try using Best Creations Foam tape to layer some
