Altered Clipboard

Hello friends!
I want to share with you a clipboard I recently altered!



I used a dreamy new line of paper called "Thrift Shop" by October Afternoon. I knew when I heard the name of this line that I was going to love it! They also have another new release that coordinates well called "Fly a Kite".

The names of these papers are so cute! One is called "Collector's Item" and another called "Near Mint".



I added lots of layers to make this decorative clipboard. It will not be used as it's main function anymore but it happily sits on a shelf at the scrapbook store where I work, inspiring others to create with this paper!

I used these great Tim Holtz Grungeboard hinges covered with Barn Door Distress Ink! I love how they turned out! Grungeboard is a really flexible, textured chipboard which is one of my favorite new crafty items right now!

A crepe paper rosette and vintage mini ric rac finish off this clipboard!
I hope I have inspired you to try altering a clipboard!

Here is a glimpse of other lovely patterns from this new paper collection!


Have a crafty Friday, Lindsey

What a lovely alteration! You are so lucky to do what you love and work in a place that promotes that. That sweet little image in the previous post gave me a giggle -- when no one's with me I'm all alone. :) Best wishes for a fabulous Friday! Tammy

Love your clipboard, Lindsey! Okay...this new paper collection? I MUST have it! I don't have any scrapbook stores near me, so I love seeing new things on blogs like this--thanks!

Hope you two have a wonderful Memorial weekend with your family!

Hi Lindsey,

I never got to work at a scrapbook store, but I practically live in them, and I used to design projects for them, so there was a lot of free product. I wish I still did that sometimes. Your clipboard is adorable, love that line of paper, too. October Afternoon is amazing!

Hugs,
Meri
