Tip: If you happen to get a smudge of ink on your nice white cardstock, take a white eraser to it to see if it will lift off. It worked for me on this project!

So, below is my winning entry, a layout of my sister Julie and her family. My favourite product right now, which you will see on most of my recent projects, is Maya Road's velvet ric rac ribbon. So many colours and so much soft texture. If you read below, you can see examples of how I dyed the cream colour ribbon to suit my projects.
TIP: See those orange numbers by Pink Paislee??? They were too bright initially, so I took some brown fluid chalk ink and rubbed it on top. It really toned down the bright orange. You can apply ink to any chipboard letters as long as the ink is darker than the letters. It should make a difference.
PS: Scrapbook Star is having an on-line crop this weekend with prizes drawn randomly for people who complete challenges.

TIP: Have a light coloured button? You can write little words on it with a permanent ink pen. See my Mother button as an example.
See you soon bloggers!

TIP: If you have chipboard that just isn't the right colour, apply a Copic marker over top to get the colour you want. The scalloped chipboard behind January was light brown and glittered. I applied a black Copic marker to make it nice and dark, so it would really pop.
