What could YOU link up to Chip Off the Old Block? Here are a few ideas to get you started (use one or use them all). Feel free to use any product you'd like.
  • Use chipboard on your project. You could even use blocks, as in squares of paper, a grid design, etc.
  • Create a project around the words "board" or "bored" — activities that keeps kids from saying, "Mom, I'm bored", board games, a cruise vacation (because you're on "board" a ship), add in a surf board, etc.
  • Show us a project that has to do with family traits, because they're a "chip off the old block". 
  • Download July's free printable, Color My World or August's free printable, The Beach is Calling, from the Paper Issues store and use one or more of the cards on your project.

  1. Do you have a problem with your InLInkz? Some of your designers have old layouts posted here that go back as far as 2013! I noticed because I was looking through some of the entries to see how mine compared!
