Blog Hop Wednesday!


It's that time again. Eileen Hull's Scoreboard designs are getting rave reviews all over the designer community. The ability to cut mat board makes them unique and gives your projects an unprecedented sturdiness.
Just in time for the holidays and the busy family on the go, this project will keep you a little more organized. There are slots for up to four message centers. I know we all have our electronic reminders, but this keeps things a little more personal. They are also perfect for leaving little I-love-you notes!
I used the notepad die and cut four notepads. I assembled each one using red liner tape and then put the four together to create the box. I cut another rectangle to fit the base of the box and attached it with Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive.
The box was sprayed with Krylon Ivy Leaf paint just to make sure all edges were colored. I used Bohemia paper to cover all the surfaces and make the belly band. Scrap paper was cut to fit and stamped for the note pages. Trims and metal holders were added all around for the names.
Add a flower-topped RSVP pen and you're set.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Now, go hug someone you love and tell them how thankful you are for them!

Thanks for such nice comments, everyone. I finally got all my prep done and my cleaning done for tomorrow, so now I'm about have a little R&R and do the blog hop. Sounds like the words to a '50s song...
