10 things I love about WOW chipboard titles...

Hi all! Lisa Warren here, and it's my turn to host the WOW blog this week. Join me as I share a few of my layouts, and some fun chipboard tips along the way.

Today's layout features one of WOW's pre-cut chipboard titles. I love them, and would happily place one on every single layout!  Here's why...
  1. The hard part of thinking of a title has been done for me!
  2. It's intricately cut, and the detail is fantastic.
  3. They're economical in price, and there's no left over letters to deal with.
  4. I can customise the look and finish of it to coordinate with my layout.
  5. They're really durable, and can take quite a bit of distressing, embossing, misting and paint.
  6. They're a source of inspiration when I'm stuck for a layout idea.
  7. I can modify the layout of the words with a few snips of a craft knife.
  8. It's easy to adhere to my layout with just a few drops of glue or foam tape.
  9. There's a tonne of them to choose from.
  10. If there's a title I want, I can ask my LSS to contact WOW, who will custom design it to suit!

For this layout, I have coloured the different words in two different markers, then doodled around the edges of each letter in a slightly darker shade to add some contrast.  I then applied a glaze over the top to make it nice and shiny.

Have you tried WOW's pre-cut chipboard titles before? How did you customise it?

Cheers, Lis.

    1. Thanks Kerryn! I use Stampin' Up markers. The brush end coats chipboard beautifully, and there's a heap of colours to choose from. I've just invested in the entire colour range! You just need to test the colour on the reverse of the chipboard first because it will darken slightly.
