Use It or Lose It - Volume 1 Issue 3-Die Cuts and Chipboard


Welcome to this months Use It or Lose It blog hop.  If you're coming from Shirley's blog then you are on the right track!!  This month we are featuring Chipboard and Dimensional Elements.

Boy do we have chipboard!! It's in jars, hanging on the wall, in drawers...just about any nook or cranny we can find there is some type of chipboard stashed. 
With such an assortment to choose from I had a field day making this month's project!
I discovered a need recently for a no soliciting sign on my front door and since I am crafty I couldn't just run to the store and get a sign!!  My project is multi-purposed.  The sign is built on a cigar box, so the natural thing to do in my mind was to put something inside!!
Now hopefully strangers will stop trying to sell me newspapers or home improvements and friends or family can leave me a note when I'm not at home!!

Inspiration for my sign came from the Friday Challenge Sketch over on Quick Quotes blog.


Products for this project are brought to you by:
Chipboard - Close To My Heart, Fancy Pants Design, Maya Road and numerous jars
Pattern Paper - Quick Quotes, Close To My Heart
Various other products-Jars, drawers and boxes from the crop room

Thanks for dropping by, now hop on over to Tonya's blog to see what she's created for you!
