Welcome to another month of fun happenings! October is here – although you wouldn’t know it out here in sunny CA – it was over 100* for 3 days last week, and while it is cooler here today, it still doesn’t feel like fall.
While I really like to make cards, I have to admit that I really like to put paper on just about anything. I have actually caught myself looking at items in a store and thinking “what would that look like with patterned paper on it?” 🙂 Always makes me smile at myself. I guess I could have worse obsessions!
Many years ago, I did a make-n-take at a scrapbook show and made a small clipboard covered with papers and ribbons. I just loved it – so neat and pretty and what a great gift idea for that someone who seems to have everything! Since then, I have covered many clipboards – big and small – for teachers, bus drivers, friends, scrappers, and even clubs. It makes a nice and personal way to present a gift card or a note to those special people.
Here are two examples I made recently just for fun. I liked the bright colors and ‘flashy’ flowers and embellies. See what you think, then stay tuned for a WHOLE set of them I did for a mom’s club group leaders – no two are ever alike!
