Altered Clipboard- Corkboard



Wrapping up my week of a detailed look at the elments that made up my Altered Corkboard.  For my Altered Clipboard that holds my seasonal Fall/ Halloween tag I used papers and layers of the season. 

I used Modge Podge on my $1 clipboard and trimmed the patter paper to fit.  How did I ever craft without modge podge?

To ensure a good seal I used my brayer. 

Ohhhhh love this die and I loved using it.  I cut grundge board and orange glitter paper and clued.  Usually I would grab back or grey but orange is fun!

I cut weathered clock, painted it black and coated the clock in rock candy.  Isn't the 31 pattern resist paper FUN!

It's my husbands mission to help by providing beer bottle caps.  He loves beer from all over the world so I can collect some pretty unique caps.  I picked up this charm from a charm braclet, another $1 store find.  Add a little alcohol ink and it becomes a custom fit.

To further distress my weathered clock I sanded down the the edges.

Candlelight Fright is shrunk down to this charm size candelabra measuring about an 1 1/4".  I used some alcohol inks, caramel and butterscotch to give it a yummy warm glow.  I played with my melting pot, shrink paper and Tim Holtz dies to create this charming treat.

Using the ticket die and TH stamps, HAPPY HALLOWEEN, inked and a thick layer of rock candy.  A perfect accent tucked beside the candelabra charm.  A mini vintage clip is the prefect size and fits the ticket.

I mounted a peice of wooden ruler along the bottom of the board and layered the BOO, a stamped cork peice, the candelabra and ticket. I left the strands of hot glue to give it a webbed feel.

The final thouch is clipping my tag on. 

Just incase you missed it.  My cork board all pulled together including this clipboard.

Thanks for stopping by and if you stopped by all week I hope you'll try this too!

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
