Paper Maniac Blog Hop ~ with Flair!

If you arrived here from Ann’s blog, you are on the right track! If not, go back to the Paper Maniac Store blog so you don’t miss any of the great inspiration. Today is a celebration of Paper Maniac's first year! This past year has gone so quickly, it has been so fun to be a part of things from before day one! Today I am showcasing an altered clipboard with fabulous Echo Park Paper and Unity Stamps. I made 2 of them to give to Bug's preschool teachers.


Here is the back (it isn't glossy since I hadn't mod podge'd it yet).



In addition to the clipboards, I altered a couple binder clips and made a bookmark for each of them. I packaged it in a cello bag and made a matching topper with some scraps from the clipboard project.


Supplies Used:

Stamps: Various KOTM (Unity Stamp Company), Shabby French Stamp Set (Stampers Anonymous)
Card Stock: Summer Sun
Patterned Paper: Walk in the Park (Echo Park)
Ink: Cocoa Brown (Memento), Antique Linen (Distress Ink), Versamark
Accessories: Circle Nesties (Spellbinders), Mod Podge, Clipboard, Binder Clips, Jumbo Paper Clip, Corner Rounder

Now for the FUN! There are some faBuLOUS priZes to be won this weekend! Check out the Paper Maniac Store Blog for complete info!
Head on over to Emily's Blog!

  30. Echo Park is so hot right now. I think it is because they selectively release their product and have worked so that each paper is so right in color and detail. This clipboard pops and I like how you used your scraps to fancy up so clips to match. Happy birthday paper maniac
