This is kindof scary - my first thread here! I've enjoyed reading lots of different posts on this board so I thought I'd show you my newest listing on etsy. I wanted to branch out from just selling cards so I've been spending the last few days altering shaped chipboard albums.

The process is really quite fun - I have learned a few things - for example, definitely smart to ink or color the edges of the chipboard before you glue it to the paper. And speaking of glue, glue sticks are my friend and you can never have enough.

Thanks for taking a look - Jeanine of MyGrandpasPen www.mygrandpaspen.etsy.com

I've used both pioneer and scotch brand gluesticks - generally for scrapbooking I do not use glue sticks I use a double sided adhesive like a tape runner or photo splits. But for the chipboard the gluesticks seems to work the best.

Thanks for your comments!

Thank you! I've made a funky flower shaped one too that you can see at etsy www.mygrandpaspen.etsy.com and I'm in the middle of making several more. They're just really quite fun!
