Chevrons are all the rage in crafts lately and that has definitely carried over into scrapbooking. I have found myself using a lot of chevron paper in the kids’ albums but sometimes I can’t find exactly the color I want or need. Fortunately I found a great solution – the Stampin’ Up Positively Chevron background stamp. Now I am only limited by the colors of ink I have on hand.
This is a large stamp, measuring 4.5 x 5.75 inches. You only have to stamp it a few times to fill an entire sheet of cardstock. With this stamp, you can always have the right color of chevron paper you need for your latest project!
My favorite use for this chevron rubber stamp so far has been making silhouette Project Life cards. I just love the look of the black silhouette against the fun chevron pattern.
Here is a handmade Project Life card I recently made for my son’s high school scrapbook. He plays the saxophone in the marching band so I cut a silhouette saxophone player from black cardstock. For the background card, I stamped the chevron pattern in the color Pumpkin Pie to match the coloring of the design on the front of my son’s band uniform. I then cut the chevron pattern down to 3×4 inches for the filler card. Lastly, I adhered the silhouette to the card and I was done. Quick and easy, yet I really love the effect!
So tell me… Are you mad for chevron paper?
