CRICUT CARD FAIRY BACK TO SCHOOL BLOG HOP AND DRY ERASE MEMO BOARD PROJECT

WELCOME!! I am so excited to be a blog hop partner with these amazing ladies again for this 3 day event!  (Please go here to find out more about Cricut Card Fairies.) Oh my gosh, wait until you see what these talented ladies have come up with! We are all featuring back to school projects made with these wonderful digital stamps by Regina at the Cutting Cafe. And guess what?... Regina has been gracious enough to sponsor this blog hop by donating a grand prize, which means you can win not one... not two... but THREE Cutting Cafe stamp sets of your choice!! Wow, Regina is so generous, and so talented, you are going to want to visit The Cutting Cafe and check out her amazing artwork! To win this prize, you need to visit each lady participating in this hop and leave a comment on each blog... easy right? And as extra added bonus, you will have more chances for candy along the way from some of the participants!
So let's get to hopping!

If you need to start at the beginning of this blog hop, go to Crystal's blog to start. If you have come here from AJ713's blog, then you are on the right track. If you just have no idea where you are, there is a listing of all the participants at the end of my post.

For my project, I am using the School Borders printable stamp set. I had so much fun with this set, the hardest part was deciding which of these great borders to use.

MY PROJECT - DRY ERASE SCHOOL MEMO BOARD

My grandson started Kindergarten this year so I made this dry erase school memo board to help keep track of all those upcoming notes, papers, activites & forms.  I used my Gypsy and welded his name to a rounded corner rectangle and cut it four times, twice out of chip board, once out of the background paper, and once out of a backing of a coordinating color cardstock. Then I cut just his name out of the same backing paper, and just the rectangle out of clear acetate card stock. Next I layered everything together except the acetate. I attached Regina's cute back to school border and those yellow pencils which I had colored with copics -  then the acetate goes on top of everything. I attached a few eyelets, some clips for hanging artwork, school calendar or whatever, and a dry erase marker. Done! It is quite sturdy with all the layers. You can either put hangers on the back for hanging on the wall or magnets for the fridge - I will let my daughter decide which one she wants.



The finished memo board is about 8x10.5 inches. I will post more details on this project in a day or two, so check back later if you are interested in those details.

I will be posting another project later using these borders - wait until you see!

BLOG CANDY: You say you want blog candy????  Just comment on this posting. No need to follow me, but I will love it if you do... I will use "The Hat" random number program to pick a winner for this:

Cricut Cartridge storage tote by C-Gull. Really cute and functional, brown and pink. I only took it out of the plastic for photographs. I put it in my chair for the pictures to give you an idea of the size. Here is a store link that gives the dimensions, details and more pictures of this cool tote bag. Good Luck!



Okay, that's it for me for now, check back with me later for another project. And be sure to comment on this posting for a chance to win my candy and on every blog hop posting for a chance to win the grand prize. Now get on over to Pamela's blog because she has something so cute (I just saw it and it is amazing!!) you are NOT going to want to miss it!!

I love love love this bag, but no seriously, the board is a great idea too. When I was still living at home and in high school, our schedules were so busy I barely even got to see my parents, so we communicated by a dry erase board on the fridge...
