Keep it Simple Sunday

Tonight's title should be "Keep it Simple Sunday" and "Remember that Chipboard?" :-) I still have chipboard projects to share!! I think this is the third project I created using the chipboard I altered in these videos. This page is actually using two of the chipboard pieces, the frame and the heart. The only change I made to the frame was to rub brown ink on the edges to age it up a bit. You know I can't let the edge of anything go un"aged!" LOL! So how is this for a simple scrapbook layout!? This is an 8" x 8" page, which is quickly becoming my favorite size page. It's not quite as overwhelming as a 12x12 but gives you more room than a 6x6...it's perfect! I found this piece of green background paper when I was rummaging through my paper stash and it was the perfect size for the 8x8 page. I didn't even cut the green! Of course a polka dot background was the perfect mach for the "holey" paper and I added the polka dots on the brown paper with a Stampin' Up! background stamp. The photo of my sweet munchkin came next, with the wee heart added to the frame, and then I added this wonderful striped SU! ribbon around the entire page. The tag, which states "it's the little things in life that make life big" (also from SU!) was added with a piece of twine. The buttons were a quick, easy, and perfect accent. I used twine to give that sewn look on a few of the buttons and left some of them plain. Super easy page to create and what a great way to showcase the sweet face of my little monkey! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check back later this week for some super exciting news...

Look at your little cutie! I'm also a fan of 8x8. It took me awhile to work into, but now I love it.
