Although this is quite scrumptious looking (especially with that Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe on it), let's not actually "eat" the clipboard, okay? My new blogger-friend Jill Scott over at Controlling My Chaos has come up with a fabulously unique way of how she creates, displays, and how she organizes her recipe cards . She has digitally created the recipe cards using her Creative Memories Digi Scrap program...I cannot wait for Stampin' Up! to release their Digi Scrap program this fall, so I can make digi recipe cards, too!! Anyway, I tried a couple of the recipes (in fact, I just made the above cookies on Saturday...Delish!) and decided I needed ALL of them! So I downloaded them all, then uploaded them to Wal-mart's photo dept. & now I have all these wonderful & beautiful recipes to try! She even has directions on how you, too, can get her fabulous recipe cards. I purchased 5x7 photo/postcard protectors HERE. Please stop on by Jill's wonderful & funny blog on how she creatively "controls her chaos".
Okay, on with the actual clipboard: I made this using Stampin' Up!'s 9x9 On Board Chipboard Clipboard, which is unfortunately no longer available...grrr! I used Mod Podge to adhere this super-cute paper from the NEW Simply Scrappin' Kit "Happy B-Day" to the clipboard. Then, I used Stampin' Up's BRAND NEW Sizzix Simple Letters BIGZ Dies to punch out the "let's eat!" letters. The little hearts are from Stampin' Up!'s Heart to Heart Punch. Next, I put 2 coats of Mod Podge over the paper & letters "just incase" I slop on it while I'm cooking/baking...I even coated the edges & the back with Mod Podge. Finally, I tied some Brocade Blue & Certainly Celery Ribbon on it, and Voila...a fun little clipboard to display my YUMMY recipes while I'm cooking/baking.
I have made another clipboard with the "Happy Bday" Simply Scrappin' Kit AND 4 sets of scrapbook pages for my Simply Scrappin' Club, so stay tuned for more fun projects!! Erin
