so this month i wanted to do something different, i wanted to shake things up a bit and all i can say is wow! these girls have really done a great job

so there task was to make an altered item or home decor item

8x10 Artists Canvas


S.E.I. Oasis Rub-Ons

4 Brown Brads

Colorbok Notepad

Michaels Ribbon


EK Success Corner Punch

Nestabilities Large Labels

Sizzix Big Kick


I started with January using the Ace, then each month follows ... February is 2, March is 3 ... Nov is the Jack and December is the Queen (or King!)
Cut a piece of cardstock or printed paper for the background added the playing card, the mini-calendar printout and a decoration for each month. I've got photos of several months. There is a magnet on the back of the clipboard so it can be put on the fridge or you can hang it by the clip.
I think it's fun. And it uses stuff I have readily at home!

Supplies Used:
* mini clipboard
* playing cards
* cardstock & printed papers (various)
* mini calendar print-out
* various embellishments for each month

The funny thing is that I ended up looking in the basement in our pile of garage sale stuff and found it there! My trash became my treasure! LOL It was a file that we used for mail and I turned into a place to put my pictures to be scrapped
List of items used:
Brown cardstock
K&Company Designer paper
Green flowers
Jasmine Cricut Cartridge
Green ribbon
