Go ahead and laugh mini clipboard

I can't believe it is the last day of November. Time is just flying by lately. Well I wanted to share a treat stick with you.  I am using it to throw my hat into the ring for  Mae Sunshine Designs who is having a design team call.
This was really hard I just wasn't sure what I wanted to create. So, I went digging through this bin and I found the parts to make this.

 I got the clipboard part at Archivers. I know it was on clearace I think I paid about $.75 for it. I used quick dry ink chalk for the edges and then covered it in paper. I have had the paper for years and kind of forgot about it.  I adhered the paper down and then trimmed and sanded it.  Then I reinked the edges.  I cut the another pattern for the square and inked that as well.  I added a fun stamp that says " Go ahead and laugh" One thing I love about stamps is you can bend them.

 I just curved it slightly while putting it on my clear block, added my ink and stamped right on it.   The final touch was some ribbon since I didn't have seam binding.

Give Thanks Jar

Hi Everyone! Happy Tuesday!  I am so excited to bring you a cute little recycled project today.  I wanted to do a little something for the teacher that I teach religon classes with. She is so nice and we have so much fun in class.  I saw this empty peanut butter jar on the counter and I turned it into this....

All the papers are from Doodlebug Designs the new Happy Harvest collection.  The cover I cut a strip3/4x10 and wrapped it around the cover and then traced the cover and hand cut out the top part. The papers around the middle are cut at 3x10.5 and 2x10.5 The picture in the middle, and sentiment flag  Doodlebug stickers. I stuck the flag to the picture and then used baby powder to make it unsticky.    I added some Doodlebug sprinkles to the sticker. I also used some Doodlebug twine. Finally the crowning glory of the project a fabric popper by Pinque Peacock.

Here is the close up of the popper.

I love how it is just a perfect match for the project. Then I just added my kisses and it is ready to go. I will give it to her tomorrow.  Hope she likes it ;)

Enjoy your day.

An altered jar for Pinque Peacock

Happy Hump Day Everyone!   It is my day to post at Pinque Peacock. I know I am totally ready for the weekend already.  Lately I feel like my mojo went on vacation and forgot to come back...LOL. I made a few things, but I totally not digging how they came out. So, here's to hoping my mojo returns from vacation soon. Anyway, onto my project.

I decided i needed to alter this jar. It told me it wanted to get dressed up LOL
So. I took some twine and wrapped it around the center. I added some live,laugh, love ribbon from my stash.  Then I added my Splendid Swirl.

 Now here is another thing I love about Pinque Peacock Pinquettes. I posted a picture of this part way done and I knew it needed something but I couldn't figure out what. I stared at this jar for 2 days. They suggested the heart and then my sister suggested a little glitter. So the heart center is a charm and I just slipped the loop part under a fold of the Splendid Swirl and then cut up a strip of bling into individuals and stuck them on.  I hope you like it too. Have a great Hump Day!!

If you are hopping over from Paula, then you are in the right place. If not head back to Pinque Peacock to start at the beginning of the hop.

So I have a little memo board to share with you...

I used a piece of metal for the back of the hanger. Then I covered it in some paper, I used my atg to adhere it. Red felt poppers are attached to my magnets. Then in the corner is a beaded stick pin, I made using beads from the Bead Buffet and then the final touch was a white Splendid Swirl.

I took a few pictures of it, so here it is on a white background.
