Message Center

So what do you think of my message center?? I found something similar on Pinterest and just had to re-create it!! I am totally addicted to this site and if you have not yet checked it out, you need to head on over there. Make sure you follow me too!! Just click on my button on my left hand side of my blog.

I started with a cookie sheet from the Dollar Tree and yup, it was only a $. Pulled out all my retired paper, corduroy buttons and ribbon. Also, you will need a small empty can, I used a soup can.

These flowers were cut with a retired Big Shot Flower Die and I also used thick cardboard that comes in the packs of paper for our Specialty DSP.

So what do you think? Like it? Do you think they will sell at our Craft Fair this weekend? I love how it turned out but don't want to make too many of these if they don't sell but then again I don't want to make only a few and sell out. Oh the dilemma!!

Have a great day!!

Baby Boy Memory Board

Can this picture be any worse?? I really need to make a permanent place to take my pictures and big enough for those bigger projects that I make from time to time. Any suggestions?? I can use any help you can offer!!

This is a Memory Board I made for my niece's baby shower last week. She is having a baby boy in January and these are the colors of her nursery. I love how it turned out and so did she!! I made this for her to hang in the nursery and put special pictures on.

I purchased the fabric at Wal-Mart, used some now retired Bashful Blue Ribbon and Chocolate Chip Corduroy Buttons.

Do you recognize the tag? I just copied it from page 88 of the Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog. Love it when all the thinking is done for me!! This tag uses Bashful Blue & Whisper White Card Stock, the Fox & Friends & Sweetly Said Stamp Sets, the Dot, Dot, Dot Single Stamp, Natural Hemp Twine and my Big Shot with the Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die.

Let me know if you are interested in your very own Memory Board. I make them for our Craft Fairs in all different sizes and colors. You can even pick your own fabric!! The cost varies depending on the size. The one shown here would be $15.

Thanks and have a great day!!
