Clear Scraps Chipboard Embellishments -- Did Someone Say Cake?

Hi everyone!!  Laura here today, to share a fun and easy

birthday scrapbook page idea with you!!

Clear_Scraps_Chipboard_Did Someone Say Cake

I'm a huge fan of embellishments and chipboard embellishments

are especially fun because they can be custom made to match

any picture, papers, or other embellishments that you want.

In this scrapbook page, I used the Clear Scraps Present Chipboard

to add just a little something extra to the edge of my birthday LO.

I used aqua acrylic paint for the box and lid part, and then

used a brush to use red acrylic paint to paint the bow.

Super simple, but it matches my papers so well!  I also

used a bright, fun piece of polka dotted patterned paper

behind the chipboard piece.  Just trace the present onto

the paper, cut out, and glue.  Another way you can

customize the look of this piece.

To make the piece pop off the paper a little more, and

to add a highlight that matched the gray background

paper of this LO, I brushed the edges of the painted

chipboard present piece with some soft black ink using

a sponge applicator.  A few layered mats, twine, and

stickers, and I've got an adorable birthday LO!

The present is one of so many different options you'll

see in the Clear Scraps store HERE.  You can find holidays,

seasons, and so many different themes, everything from

baby, to cooking, to pets, beach, even that famous mouse!

These are great to pick up to have for any scrapbook page,

home decor project, or even cards!  This gift chipboard

piece I've shared today could be for a wedding, for baby,

for Christmas in addition to birthday.  I love having

embellishments around I can customize as I go!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Hope you are inspired to try some of these fun pieces!
