My Next Project Is....

I've been wanting to make a scribble board for my projects for a while and I recently felt inspired enough to get on with it. The idea is that I scribble down those projects that are in my head and have them hanging in one place somewhere near my craft space.

I don't know about you but sometimes I have lots of things I want to do but they don't always get done or something comes up and the idea gets pushed somewhere else. I have lots of notepads, books, random pieces of paper where I jot everything down but I just needed one place to keep tabs on.

The beauty of this little board is that I've laminated the paper so that I can write and rub off as needed :) Let's see if it works!

The flowers were made with my scalloped and circle nesties and distressed with a file and ink. See the little cherub button? - I've been storing him for ages waiting for a project to use him on. Isn't he a darling?

I made a 'curly-wurly' template and cut it out of designer paper and distressed. The background corrugated card was painted with acrylic paints and the cuttlebug die-cut leaves were embossed with veins with an embossing tool. The title is printed with my computer :)

Papers - GCD Studios
Inks - Tim Holtz Distress inks
Usual Suspects - Paper trimmer silicone glue; double-sided tape
Other - Cherub button; Cuttlebug; Nestibilities; Leaf dies; pearl brads; Acrylic paints; Corrigated card; Lamintor; String; Wood beads; Computer; Printer; Paper files; Woodware large embossing leaf punch; Embossing tool.
