Crafting with Chipboard

May is National Scrapbook Month, and it is also a month full of celebrations in my family. I just returned from a two week long vacation with family, celebrating birthdays, Mother’s Day and the birth of my newest niece. Now it’s time to relax in my backyard, soak in the sun and the scent of lilacs while I make a mini album documenting our visit.  Chipboard is one of my go-to materials for every aspect of scrapbooking, from layout and construction to embellishing. Here are just a few new ideas for using chipboard in your scrapbooking and general crafts projects.
