I created this board as a hostess gift for my friend Shannon, who was kind enough to host my very first Stampin’ Up workshop. It wasn’t really a “typical” workshop (is there such a thing?), because everyone had been to a Stampin’ Up party/workshop before and already knew the basics. Plus, they were all seasoned stampers. So that made my job a whole lot easier and I was grateful for the “easy” first workshop. Here’s the board:
Stamps: Office Accoutrement
Ink: Certainly Celery
Paper: Certainly Celery, Notations Designer Series paper
Other: Making Memories bullnose clips, ginormous paper clips, push pins, magnetic strips
I mounted the Notations paper on an actual 11×11 piece of wood, then cut the corkboard to fit (I used a kraft knife for the first time and didn’t shed any blood). I peeled the magnetic strips off the back of some magnetic shopping list things I picked up at the Target $1 back in February. I have stainless steel appliances, so I can’t use magnets any way. The paper clips are super easy to do, too. Hope you (and Shannon) like it! I’m thinking I’ll need to make one for myself!
