Last Friday, we had our monthly Crafty Girls Nite.
Linda had the cutest craft kits for us! Paper Art Memo Clip Boards. I LOVE the ribbons at the top---she found the idea on Pinterest. So cute, I want to keep making them :)
To make: Purchase clip boards, they are around $2.00 for this particular kind. You want the ones with the metal at the top, that's where your pretty ribbon will go.
Make a template with your pretty paper and embellish away, using Mod Podge and a foam brush. When you have everything just the way you want, put a thin layer of Mod Podge over top. Let dry and embellish with ribbons to match, using a double knot. One thing that helped me, was to lightly sand around the clip board before you seal everything. It just evens up the edges, and gives it a vintage feel.
I've been doing a lot of journaling in my SMASH books this week. I will admit, I was having sort of brain block with my books. Then all of a sudden, it just started clicking. I already write in my Franklin, do Project Life weekly, Jake's scrapbook and my blogging. I was thinking, this will seem like the same old stories and things.....then it came to me.
It's my journal. My feelings, good days and bad. Also, I over print too many photos sometimes for Project Life, so it's fun to have the extras. It's really quite addicting now, and I can't stop picking it up every hour or so and jotting a few things down.
Have a Wonderful Springy Weekend!
