Thread: Let's Talk Chalk Chat!

  1. Let's Talk Chalk Chat!

    Let?s Talk Chalk
    1.
    Hi and welcome to my chat! Have you jumped on the chalkboard bandwagon? I?m sure you?ve noticed chalkboards are a popular design trend for restaurant menu boards, wall art for the home, photo cards and, of course, scrapbook pages! I think it is a great look for our scrapbook pages and with autumn and Halloween coming up, think about what you could create to print and hang on a wall to decorate your home.

    I?ve gathered ideas to share in this thread to start our conversation, plus, I?ll be giving you a link to a freebie by Katie Pertiet in just a moment!

    Please add your own questions, comments and ideas throughout the day. Remember, keep refreshing this page in your browser so you see what?s been added!

    The Chalk Challenge:
    My challenge to you is to create a scrapbook page or a card, wall art or poster using 100% Designer Digitals products and at least one chalk design from our Designer Digitals store. Post by Sunday morning 8:00 AM EST.

    Important:
    Please note, to be eligible to win the $10.00 Gift Certificate to the Designer Digitals store, your layout or card should be created with 100% Designer Digital products and include at least one chalk design. Post in the 2013 3rd Quarter SALE gallery by Sunday morning 8:00 AM EST. The random winner will be announced in the forum on Sunday.


    *event pages or cards are not eligible for the monthly rewards system.


    Please post your chalk designs in this gallery: 2013 3rd Quarter Sale

    Good Morning, Merr! This will be fun! I've been wanting to learn more about working with and creating chalkboard art. I have a Pintrest Board full of stuff and I've downloaded way too many chalkboard fonts - if that is possible! I'll be checking and and out today to keep up on what is happening!

    Good morning, Merr! Having my cup of coffee, so I thought I would pop in. What a fun thread this will be! I've been working on a chalk page the past few days, so this is perfect timing.

    and now, I?ll start adding examples of the many ways we can use chalk designs!
    First up, is simply using a chalkboard paper as a background for your layout.

    I do have a few chalkboard elements, but I have a feeling this may be an enabler thread....

  24. Oh, my goodness, I went kind of crazy pinning on my Pinterest Board and now I'm overwhelmed when I go to it for ideas. LOL!

    Good Morning Joanne, you are early this morning! I was out in your neck of the woods a couple of weeks ago, but had a very tight schedule, so no time to stop in a say hi.... Next time, (which given our awesome experience), will be very soon!

  27. Janet used great color and type choices on her chalkboard background.

    Good morning to all of you! Merr - your Pintrest board is fabulous. I'm a new follower! Amy's example is so cute - I like how she used chalkboard in her photos and put it on a chalkboard background!
