I love all of Creative Embellishments’ ocean inspired chipboard pieces. I used the Tropical Fish, Seahorse, Sea Turtles,  Seaweed 2, and the Beach Word Set 2. I used a variety of chalk and metallic ink, stickles, and crackle paint on these chipboard pieces.

I am excited to share my first layout from our Hawaii photo shoot. I love the large Hibiscus chipboard pieces — I used light blue chalk ink on the petals and gold stickles on the stamen and leaves. I used gray chalk ink on the title, which came from the Thankful Word Set.

This layout features the cutest picture of my son. I used one of my favorite Creative Embellishments chipboard pieces: You are My Sunshine. I painted the text with silver paint and used gold stickles for the sun.

I created this layout using a number of my favorite pictures of my son. For my title, I used the Creative Embellishments’ Treasure Border Words set. I painted the chipboard gold and added glitter so that it coordinated with the other gold glitter elements on the page.

I love warm and cozy feel of this baby’s first Christmas layout. For my title, I paired Creative Embellishments’ Basic Alphabet, which I painted with chalk ink, with their beautiful Merry Christmas title, which did not alter.

The pictures in this layout are from my son’s first Christmas — he was so excited about it all, and I love capturing his sweet expressions.  I used the Christmas Bulb, Frame, and Holly Leaves for this layout, and cut the frame to use the embellishment on two corners of my layout.

The pictures in this layout are screen shots of some of my favorite videos of my son. The Hugs & Kisses chipboard title is just perfect for this page. I primed the piece with gesso, painted it with yellow ink, and then added glossy accents.

I have been wanting to use a number of polaroids as a design element for a long time. I used Creative Embellishments’ Together Frame Set chipboard polaroid frames and the Wood Frame Set wood polaroid frames to design this layout. I added Chevron Pieces to complete the look. I used a variety of ink colors and textures for this collage.

I love these pictures of Nathan’s first balloon fiesta, and I couldn’t wait to scrap them with this Hot Air Balloon Set. I added clouds from the Rainy Days set and used the Basic Alphabet set for my title. I primed each piece with gesso, added ink, and then finished the balloons and title with glossy accents.
