Scrappin-n-Chattin Blog Hop

Hi everyone. Are you having fun on the 1st Scrappin-n-Chattin blog hop? If you came here from Laura's blog you are on the right track. If not, head to Abby's blog to start the fun and see all the prize details.

Here is my project. A layout of my daughter, from 1974. (Okay I'm a little behind on the baby pictures.)

One of this month's challenges at S-n-C is "out of the box" - try something you've never done before.


I have never used glitter on chipboard before.


I first painted the chipboard letters white.


I used a glue stamp pad to cover each letter with adhesive quickly.




I then sprinkled the letters with glitter. Very messy but I'm happy with the outcome.


I have some blog candy to offer you. For a chance to win become a follower and leave a comment by midnight EST on Sunday August 15. I'll announce the winner on Monday, August 16th, so be sure to check back then.

Here's my secret word for you: FOR

Next stop is Kim. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Hey! I've been trying to figure out what to do with kraft-colored letters in my stash... I think you've inspired me!

    Ok, so you beat me with the overdue scrapbook pages... I'm only about 12 years behind. *grin*

  17. I have never been a big fan of glitter, but they keep improving it (and the adhesives!) I love your page and the way those letters shine! I'm behind on pics too-can't be helped and it is fun bouncing back and forth between lo's for "back then" and now!

  22. Vicki, I just became a follower to your blog.
    I'm a little behind the times on all the blogs to look at but I'm getting there and loving it all.
    I really like this layout, so bright and sparkly, I had never thought to use a glue ink pad for something like this. But I have lots of glitter so will have to give this a try. Thanks for sharing the info.

  38. Love the layout! I haven't tried chip board yet either, although I have used the cardboard backings from paper packs for heavier material. Glitter is so much fun!

  39. You are not behind! This way you can pick out the cutest or most important pictures/memories from your children's lives and it will be a much more balanced scrapbook! I have been putting my boys' stuff in envelopes because at 2 and 3, if I start now, I will have too much for the first couple years. The advice to save until later came from my husband grandmother, who is also an avid scrapper.
