The Everything ABC's Blog Hop Featuring the Letter D


Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter "D". This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their "D" element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda's blog ~ Scrappy Therapy.


If you came from "Cary Magnani - My Heart's Design" then you're on the right track!

The letter "D" represent Dimensional Elements. My sister friend Candi O was telling me she wanted to know more about how to use these chipboard pieces that come with our AMAZING cricut cartridges. You can also purchase them separately!!
I put together this cool layout using our group picture from a scrapbooking retreat last weekend. The new Ivy Lane paper packet was my paper of choice. I used Smokey Plum and black ink. I decided I would use dimensional elements on the layout to show 3 different ways to have fun with this chipboard. 

Here is a video of me putting on the final touches of this page. 


  1. Cover the chipboard with paper. That is right you can cut out the images using the appropriate cricut cart and adhere the paper onto the chipboard with your adhesive. The possibilities are endless with all the different pattern papers that exist. I did this with the "2014" chipboard as well as the 3 banners. I cut the shapes from the Art Philosophy cricut cart. 
  2. Ink the chipboard. You can ink it to match the papers and card stock used on your pages or cards. In this layout I inked the Irresistible which is chipboard with resistible patterns on them. When you add the ink you will see the resistible image appear. 
  3. Cover it with washi tape. I adore this polka dot washi tape!! I literally cut strips and placed it over the chipboard. I cut off the excess and smoothed down the edges. I really like how it came out!! 

Here is some up close and personal pics of the dimensional elements in action!! I used Black Bakers Twine, Durable Triangle Studs(antiqued silver) and Sparkles Black and Gray Assortment. I used the Stitched Together and Artbooking cricut cart stamp set for the term "good times". 

I am slso using this layout for the SOC "It's s Bling Thing" Challenge...having some fun putting a little bling on my page. You can't go wrong with itty bitty sparkles. 

Your next stop on our Everything ABC'S blog Hop is "Pam Trostle - Pam's Crafty Creations" blog.

Here is the complete lineup in case you get lost along the way :)

  12. Love the finished layout but I am a bit confused as to why it was all backward in the video even when you picked it up to show us.

    1. Hi Robyn - At time I use my laptop to video until I get another means to do so and it makes everything look backwards. Hopefully I will be able to get a new way to video soon.
