Message Boards

I made these message boards to sell at the craft fairs this year & they sold pretty well! So easy & functional!!! They are frameless picture frames (the ones with the little silver clips), a dry erase marker and an eraser. The decorated paper is all under the glass, so when people write on the board, it won't ruin the paper! It is there each time they write & erase!! Clever eh?? The dry erase markers were bought at the Dollar Store, 3 for $1. The clips, ribbons & flowers were all supplies I had here! I just found paper to match the coloured clips!!

I attached the dry erase marker to the ribbon so it doesn't disappear, and if you flip the clips up, the marker sits perfectly in that when it is on the wall!!! These first 2 are just message boards, made with an 8x10 frame from the Dollar Store.

These bigger ones are an 11x17 frame, and have a message board and a To Do list. I also added a little calendar on the bottom left corner, attached with a clip so they have a calendar handy, and it is easily removable!

This one is black & white - but was SO hard to photograph because the paper was shimmery & the glass was reflecting the lamp! GRRRR!! But it is one of my favourites & the first one to sell!!!

Here are a few others I made. I didn't take photos of them all, ran out of time!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!! These make great gifts, so if you make some, I'd love to see them!!!! Have a great week!!!

Let it SNOW!!!

NOT a BIG fan of snow & ice - especially icy roads & cold bitter winter winds, but this little guy looks ready to go for winter with his cute little hat!!!! The image is from Angel's Landing - they are digital images and OH SO CUTE!!!!!! The cardstock is Real Red (SU), the DP is from My Mind's Eye. I cut out the window with my Nestabilities and used Glittering Crystal 3D paint on the snow above the words. The little snowflakes are little buttons I've had FOREVER!!!!

Here is the outside of the card:

And the inside!

Here are a few more cards using some of the other cute penguins from Angel's Landing:

Sparkly Snowflakes!

I had these snowflake ornaments in my Christmas tub for a couple of years & finally got some inspiration to make cards with them. These cards are 5x5 square so you can imagine how big these snowflakes are eh? I got 4 of them for 99 cents - can't remember where though - Michael's or Wal Mart maybe?!?!? So, I tried them with different colours to give some variety! I added a button in the middle with a silver bow & a rhinestone for even more SPARKLE!!!!! Now, I want YOUR opinion...which colour do you like best??





So?? What do you think? Which colour do YOU like best???
