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!

So adorable Eva!! I was just thinking the other day that I wish I had a clipboard! Doubt I will find one for that awesome price, but I will have to look for one now!!

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!!!

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!

Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

Hi!  It's been a while since I participated in one of PTI's blog hop challenges.  But I had to play along this month.  Not only did I place an order on release night but I also got my goodies in about a week!  So I had some time to play around with my new stamps and dies.  Hehe.  Below is the inspiration photo.

I love the Christmas theme and the colors too so I went with that.

When I saw the newly released penguin stamp and die, I had to get them.  So cute!!  I thought this penguin would make a cute spinner card too.  Similar to the froggy one I made HERE.  I also used PTI's In the Meadow dies.  I used the die itself and my hobby blade to cut along the curved edge to create the little cut out for the penguin to slide.  I did that twice leaving a quarter inch space between them.

I layered the penguin with PTI's coasters.

I added a tiny bell to his hat.

He slides down.  The jingle all the way sentiment is from Tiny Treats Xmas.  Just traced the space with a pencil and curv…

I wheelie like you!

Hello!  I started making some Valentine's Day cards for my shop.  I love Lawn Fawn stamps and their punny sayings!  So I used a bunch of their stamps recently.  And I totally thought I would be good and not get anything from their new release but those dies!  I want the Fancy Box and the Scalloped Box Card Pop up! 

Here is one of the cards I've made recently using Lawn Fawn's Wheelie Like You set.  I had to do some selective stamping to stamp the Wheelie three times and in red.  I use a small post it and cover up the words I do not want to be inked up.  Then I remove the post its and stamp only the word I want.

Here's a close up.  I fussy cut the little guinea pig out and adhered him onto the wheel.  Wait, he is a guinea pig, right?  Could he also be a hamster?

Well, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  We had an incredible day of traffic yesterday!  My husband and daughter were stuck on the road for about 5 hours.  If you live on Oahu, you know what I'm talking a…
