Scrappy Clipboard


I created this clipboard for Unity Stamp Company's Hip Hop Scrappy Challenge, but didn't finish it until way passed the closing time. I still wanted to do it, because challenges help me think out of the box.

I had originally intended to use Unity's Polka Dot Left frame for another project, but instead went with something else, but I always keep elements on hand (especially if I have taken the time to cut them out!).

The background of the clipboard is covered with blue cardstock and stamped first with Staz-On White, then overstamped with Stampin Up! Chocolate Chip using Unity's Floral Swoop stamp and their Swirl Element stamp.

The flowers were leftover from my Butterfly Book project and the little piece of Stampin Up! ribbon came out of my leftover ribbon jar.

The chipboard measures 4 x 4.75. So, you might be wondering the same thing I was after I made it. What's it good for? So, squeezing the juices of my brain, and thinking..."It's a decorative object" over and over again....I thought...

Yeah, I could use it in a gift basket, hold little notes for myself at work (and it'd help me find it, because it would stand out against cubicle ivory!), or even throw it in a clear envelope with a letter as Naked Mail.

I like the Naked Idea! Okay, you all know I like the Naked part the best, but letters are fun too, right?

I have a dear friend that I'm sure it will cheer up! So, here it comes, you don't know who!

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....


Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
