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!

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
