Hilde Aaslund - July DT Reveal

As you may have noticed in the shop, Memory Maze provide you with chipboards in almost any size - from itty bitty micro ones, to large 12"*12". In today's post I will focus on the 6"*6" (150 mm x150mm) ones and how you can cut them apart to fit your project better.

Mountain Flora

In my part of the world (Norway) it's summer and the kids are in the middel of their long vacation. We, the adults, don't have as much time off as they do during this period, but we try to use the weekends too, for having some fun together. Two weeks ago I brought my family up in the mountains, and here its' still quite chilly and you can find spots of snow. But if you look closely you find tiny little flowers even here, and some of them are just adorable. 
I have cut both a large Doily Chipboard and a Vintage Mirrir Chipboard into two. I placed the doily  pieces on top and bottom of my page and tucked the Mirror pieces behind my photo and other embellies.

Yes, this is the very-long-title on my layout.
My youngest son tried out fruit carving for the very first time on the said mountain trip, but I wanted a less obvious title on my layout...

I have cut a Myahem Chipboard into three pieces, inked it up in black, and tucked the pieces under my photos. If I had left it uncut, most of it would have been covered by the photos and papers and it would have had no effect at all.

Best Wishes Cards

The 6"6" chipboards are perfect for cards too. For these cards I have cut a Chicken Wire Chipboard in two and used them as part of the background.
The chicken wire chipboards is left raw, while the sentiment is inked in black.
