New Year Resolution Chalkboard | Silhouette Chalkboard Cardstock

Happy New Year to you all and I hope you had a happy and peaceful Christmas too.

This week the design team are using chalkboard card in their projects. I saw a quote on a friends Facebook page and decided that it would be perfect for a layout.

Creating The Sketch Pen Border

I decided that I wanted to use sketch pens on my layout (no surprise there then :0)) and chose a sketch pen border which I resized to fit my page, knowing that I would trim .25 ins from all sides of my white card as I like to have a border around my pages.

I changed the sketch pen colour to blue.

Adding The Title & Frames

For the title I used Chalkboard Label Arch and for the frames I used Sketch Leaf Frame I resized these to fit my page to hold my journaling and my photograph.

I added them to my design area to check on the size.

Adding The Text

Once I was happy with the size I opened a ‘Letter’ sized design area and added the frames and banner.

Then I used ‘Sister’s Sketch Font’ to add my title and journaling. I also added an offset cut line around the frames.

Adding Sketch Flowers To The White Card

After assessing my design I decided that it was lacking a little something so decided to add two sketch flowers above the journaling and below the photo mount.

Sketching The Design

I used a black Silhouette Sketch Pen for the black drawing on the white card and a white pen in the pen holder for the white drawing on the chalkboard card.

Will You Keep To The?

This is the second time I have used chalkboard card with a white pen and really like the effect it gives – being more permanent than using actual chalk but giving a similar look.
