Altered Clipboards

Hello!  So did everyone enjoy the post by Cheryl?  Wow, it has definitely been a while! 

Today I have a couple of clipboards to share over at All That Scraps Anything But a Card Day.  On one of my trips to our local Ben Franklin store, I saw these cardboard clipboards.  They were smaller in size than usual, about 7 in by 9.5 in.  But the best part was that they were only a $1 each!!!  I didn't know what to make with them at first besides just altering them but then I saw a roll of self-adhesive white board paper which was also on sale and then I had an idea.

I thought it would be cute to add the white board paper to the clipboard and it can be hung up somewhere.  The hardest thing was trying to cut out the paper nicely around that clip.  So once I did it close enough I traced it onto scratch paper so I could use it again as a template.  I also wrapped the edge of the clipboard with washi tape.

This is Fairy Abigail.  She is so pretty!  I did something a bit different with her wings.  I stamped them onto vellum and cut them out and glued just the edge by her hair.  I added some stickles and liked that transparent look.  The sentiment is from Butterfly Labels.  Mostly I am proud that I used some of these flowers and pearls and rhinestones!  I've had these a while.

This is the second one I made using some cute Doodlebug cardstock and the new stamps from CC Designs called The Tumbleweeds.  This cutie is from Butterfly Dreams.  The butterfly die cut is also CC Designs Butterfly Border die.

Here's a close up.  I like her as a blonde too.

It's Spring Break for my boys this week but I seem to have caught a cold or something.  Funny thing is that my kids aren't sick.  I caught something all on my own.  My nose gets stuffy every time I sit for too long so I'm trying to stand up every so often.

Alrighty, thanks for visiting today!


How cute and ideal Eva~ this would make cute gifts for a child to have on their desk....
TFS - enjoy your wonderful day!

You're doing it again! Just killing me with cuteness. I love this project! I never knew there was such a thing as white board paper. I gotta go look for that now. I'll white board our entire dining table - all scratched up with pen marks already! Cute!!!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them.

I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand?

This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful.

I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet.  And th…
