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!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
