I chose to dig through my rarely used chipboard, and pull out some pieces from Fancy Pants Designs. You may even have something similar in your collection.
Chipboard is one of those staple products that can always be altered to look updated and modern. Even printed pieces of chipboard can be given a new look by either peeling off the printed layer, or by recovering the print with paper or paint. In this case, I'm giving the surface of the raw chipboard new life with one of my favorite new trends; washi tape.
I dug through my pile of old Christmas papers to find a paper that worked with the patterns of washi tape I used. Wouldn't you know I had a red and white polka dot that matched exactly! ( October Afternoon).
Add to that a smattering of old and new embellishments, and you've got a page that can comfortably fit in your album with this year's pages.
New embellishments used:
Wooden Shapes : Studio Calico ( covered with Tim Holtz Platinum Distress Stain)
Alterable Chipboard Stars: Pink Paislee (Coloured with Distress Stains)
Snowflake Die Cuts: Maya Road
