Clippy Board swap

I love the concept of these little clippy boards! It's a neat way to hold your Post-It notes. Essentially it's just made of a coaster covered with paper and then a binder clip holds the Post-Its on the coaster. SO COOL!!
This is the first ever "swap" I've participated in. I joined two rounds, so I had to made two groups of 11 clippy boards, each group using one pape pack and one stamp set, then I mail them to the gal in charge of the swap. She gets all the clippy boards from the other 10 ladies envolved and she'll separate them so that we each get one of all the others' clippy boards and mail them back to us. Then we'll all have 10 clippy boards that are all different!
It was so fun making them...except having to stamp EVERY page on EVERY Post-It. Can't wait to see what all the other ladies made!

Layout from a party

This two-page layout was a fun one from a recent party at my house. We used the "Imagine"book from CTMH to help the ladies easily cut their own paper and put together their layouts. We had lots of fun, and I think it gave them the confidence to try it on their own at home. I love it when I can help aid in others' creativity!

Materials: All CTMH. "Imagine" layout guide by Jeanette R. Lynton, Sasparilla B/T paper, Colonial White CS, Black CS, Playful Fourishes stamo set, Barn Red, Chocolate and Desert Sand Exclusive inks, Black Exclusive marker, Dimentional Elelments Flower Garden, liquid glass, stylus, sanding kit. Other-white printer paper.
