I am excited to share that my team will be making this beautiful ‘altered clipboard’ at our Quarterly “Impress Me” Team Meeting, on August 13th. I have been looking to make a WOW project to entice you ladies to think of stamping this summer!
And as if that isn’t enough, our special guest is the lovely and talented Amanda Coughlin who will be up from Florida to share her stamping magic with us at this meeting as well. For my customers: LOOK for a class for this in September… check for my upcoming newsletter.
I used the new 9×9 chipboard clipboards that we sell with my new favorite Scrappin’ Memories(r) kit “Secret Garden”… fabulous papers in the new colors.
I accented this clipboard with the “Pretties” kit which includes diamond rhinestone brads, pearls (and “half pearls” suitable for gluing on a flat surface) and silk flowers that dye easily. I used my sponge daubers to dye some flowers and also used a few drops of re-inkers diluted in water to dye others.
You can dry the dyed flowers immediately by pressing them in paper towels. I glued these embellishments on with Crystal Effects–I discovered the amazing permanent gluing capabilities of this product when a bottle of it opened in my luggage coming back from Convention 2005!
There is a ‘fold out’ accordion book made from the papers included in the kit. Actually, this didn’t even take half of all the paper and pre-adhesive dye cuts that come with the kit! I will be posting the 6×6 memory album that I made with it (gotta take a picture!)
