Anything but a card
Its Anything but a Card on Simon Says Stamps Challenge this week and the DT are showcasing Tim Holtz products and Debby went into meltdown. I didn't want to make another box, I wanted something that would be useful to me.
It was a lightbulb moment I wanted a calendar that I could write down my DT challenges and birthdays so I would stop getting confused. While I was moving one lot of stash to get to something underneath in my hand was Clipboard.
First I needed calendar, so do you think I could find links to what I want, of course not so I had to make my own but at least they only need the number moved for next year.
Then I needed a man because I wanted two holes drilled into the clipboard before anything else. This was for the scrapbook screws so I could add the calendar.
Then using Oliver Basic Grey currently available at Simon Says Stamps covered and decorated the clipboard using Tim Holtz dies Tattered Leaves and Flouishes and trying to make roses and failing miserably.
I then used I think Stormy distress ink pad, well a blue one to blend some colour round my calendar pages and using my favourite Inkadinkadoo dot swirls to stop the pages look boring.
Now its no way stunning like the amazing DT projects including our new DT member Kathy from the Daily Marker so go and check them out you won't be disappointed.
A huge thank you from all the DT for the amazing amout of entries over 600 and you made our Head DT leader a happy bunny.
So we would love to see you join us this week with Simon Says Stamps amazing prize of.
