Silhouette's May Promotion went live today, and we are excited to help them spread the news, while sharing some new project inspiration along the way. One of the newest additions to the products you can use along with your Silhouette and Cameo digital die cut machines is chipboard!
“Welcome Baby Boy” mini album, by Laurie Schmidlin.
I was so thrilled when I first saw the Silhouette Chipboard! It's perfect for creating mini albums, embellishments for cards, home decor items, and even for fun packaging! For my first project, I created a little Baby mini album! I cut out album pages using my Silhouette Cameo and some Silhouette Chipboard. I then cut some Baby Boy pages using the same cut files. Both the front and back have different patterns (all from the Bella Baby Boy collection). I decorated the front of the Album using some coordinating Baby Boy Ciao Chip pieces, Alpha+Bits Stickers, a couple of Saltwater Feathers, and a Star Button.

Blooming Thanks Gift Basket, by Laurie Schmidlin.
One of the projects that I couldn't wait to create using the Silhouette Chipboard was a gift container! The heavier weight lends itself nicely to holding heavier gifts! I started by cutting out the Fruit Basket shape using my Cameo, assembling it, and then adding some white wash paint over it. I decorated it with a strip of Bella patterned paper, Ciao Chip, and a Button Market button!

“Super Great Friend” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
I love adding both dimension and texture to my cards, so the idea of being able to create my own custom chipboard pieces really appealed to me! I used my Silhouette Cameo, Silhouette Chipboard, and various Bella patterned papers to cut out the tree and heart shapes for my card. For embellishments, I added a Miniature Card Sentiment and two Button Market buttons!
