Here is a double scrap layout from last year (!) that featured chipboard embellishments. It's a very clean layout without too many fussy bits as it was more to showcase the photographs than anything else.
It used a lot of die cutting - the letters, borders, flowers and scalloped photo mounts. As you can see the chipboard we layered to form embellishment pieces and used brads or basic rhinestones in the centres of them or in the case below we stamped then covered the pieces in Crystal Effects to give a lovely shiny finish to them before sprinkling with glitter. The blue circles were chipboard covered in card stock and the edges inked and the same with the vanilla scallop squares.
