Chipboard Promotion for March...


Hi al

Thought you might like to know what exciting offers Stampin' Up! have for you this month! How would you like to get your crafty mitts on chipboard for a whooping 25% off the Idea Book & Catalogue price :) Yes, that's 25% off four different chipboard products which includes alphabets, frames and accents. This high quality, acid free, chipboard is designed to co-ordinate with many of SU's stamp sets and accessories. Decorate with stamped images, Designer Series paper, Hodgepodge Hardware and many more.

I know you'll need a magnifying glass to read the poster above, so either click on the image or read the great offer below:
  • On Board Batch of Blooms - P.78, was £11.75, Special March Promotion £8.81.
  • On Board Loads of Letters - P.78, was £10.25, Special March Promotion £7.69.
  • On Board Blossoms & Basics* - P.94, was £11.75, Special March Promotion £8.81.
  • On Board Lots of Letters* - P.78, was £10.25, Special March Promotion £7.69.
* These two chipboard sets are from the 2007 retired accessories list and therefore quantities are limited to stock on hand and available while supplies last.

If any of these chipboard products catch your eye, please feel free to email me for more details. These are great accessories for both cardmaking and scrapbooking and the possibilities for using these products are endless. Here are a few examples of what you can do with them below:
  • Use chipboard as it is for an au natural look.
  • Cover chipboard with Designer Series Paper.
  • Heat emboss chipboard to add extra interest to your project.
  • Add glitter to chipboard for projects with an impressive sparkle.
  • Stamp directly onto chipboard, or cover the chipboard with cardstock or Designer Series Paper first and then start stamping.
  • Layer chipboard on top of chipboard for extra depth and dimension.
  • Try accenting chipboard with Hodgepodge Hardware, ribbon, Rub-Ons, Accents & Elements, and more.
  • Use chipboard scraps creatively! You can create a number of fun accents, such as flower stems, arrows, circle accents, frames, etc.
  • Don’t be confined to your chipboard’s original shape. Combine chipboard pieces or trim them how you like to create new, interesting shapes.
  • Use punches to add interesting accents to your chipboard pieces.
  • Use chipboard letters as monograms on cards, scrapbook pages, gifts, gift tags or wrapping, etc.
  • Accent the title of a scrapbook page by using chipboard to accentuate the first letter or a certain word.
  • Create a brag book using one chipboard letter for each layout—it could be an alphabet book for a child, or a book all about your favourite things.
  • Use frame chipboard pieces as focal points on projects, and combine with flower chipboard or letter chipboard pieces.

How exciting is this!

Bye for now,
