Chipboard challenge day 7

I am guilty of hoarding many craft supplies. Rub ons are one, chipboard letters are another. I am always hesitant to use a letter because...what if I need that letter later for something else? I know, it is crazy. I actually have several sets of letters, just in case, and I still have a hard time using them! I guess that is why stamping is so perfect for me. With my alphabet stamps, I never run out of letters! I can always just stamp another one.
So, today, my challenge is to use chipboard letters. I made this cute scrap page for a contest over at PageMaps. This is the layout they gave and we had to make it our own. All the supplies are from Stampin' Up!. The rub ons are from Saleabration this year. I love that we got them in Chocolate! They look white in the lower right hand side, but they are really chocolate. Another thing I love about rubons is how easy it is to modify them and change them. I added a swirl at the top that used to be somewhere else. They are fun. My chipboard on here is the large circle which I inked up with creamy caramel and the C which is inked with chocolate chip. I stamped the rest of the 'cousins' with a small SU alphabet using more chocolate ink. I really like using sketches for pages, it gives me a great jump start on a page. If you like sketches, PageMaps is a great place to go. Check them out!
Be sure to send me pictures or links so I can see how you used your chipboard letters today!
