We still have a few weeks before my children go back to school, but I know many of you may already have children that have gone back. My older children all have lockers at school and many of the kids at school like to decorate their lockers. Here is a quick little “notes” board that came together quickly to hang in a locker. This would also work for other places besides lockers!
I used a bull dog clip to hold a stack of plain paper and the coaster board backing and then hot glued a magnet to the back for hanging. The coaster board piece measures 3 1/2″ X 5″ and the white paper is 3″ X 3 1/2″.
GIVE AWAY: Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out this Back To School Locker idea! I want to give this away to one of my readers. Leave a comment by Sunday, August 10th on this post and I will pick a winner. I will send the mini notes clipboard on Monday.
This week Stampin’ Up! has 2 embossing folders and one Framelit set on sale to go with the Big Shot Special. I rarely make a card anymore without using a Framelit or embossing folder because they add so much to projects. See all the Weekly Deals Here.
The month of August is the perfect time to get the Daydream Medallions with corresponding Floral Frames Framelits because they are being offered as a bundle at 15% OFF. If you purchase a Big Shot you can even get the bundle FREE.
I love the Crisp Cantaloupe with the Gold accents so I decided to make an elegant card with the embossed layers. It would be great for a wedding or shower card. I actually made a card (on Facebook) using the Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape right before this one that inspired me to create this card. I loved how when I cut the card front off 1″ it showed off the triangle stamped edge.
I used the Dotty Angles Stamp Set to stamp the bottom edge that shows through to the front of the card. The stamping that shows through is stamped with the Encore Metallic Gold ink so it looks so pretty. I can’t wait to use this card for a special event.
Don’t forget about the special stamp/framelits bundles this month!
This is your chance to shop early from the upcoming Holiday catalog and get a special bundle price or even possibly a FREE set. I made the following card with the upcoming Bright & Beautiful Stars set which coordinates with the Stars Framelits. This bundle will not be available after the month of August.
When you purchase a Big Shot during the month of August you can get the Bright & Beautiful bundle FREE! If you already have a Big Shot you still get in on the special this month. There are several bundles to choose from for your Big Shot at 15% off or FREE if you are purchasing a Big Shot.
See all the special bundles available below.
I hear over and over again how much people love their Big Shot and I have to agree that I love mine too. It is rare for me to complete a project without the Big Shot. August is your month to purchase your Big Shot! During the month of August when you purchase a Big Shot you get a special stamp set/Framelit bundle FREE!
Today you can take advantage of 2 specials that work together so well. Today is the last day you can purchase 3 packages of Designer Series Paper (patterned patter that is $10.95) and get one free and the paper you get from that special work so well with the Gift Bow Bigz L die that is also on sale this week.
Here are a couple of samples done by one of the Stampin’ Up! Artisan winners with the Back To Black Designer Series paper.
She used the Blendabilites (Alcohol markers) to color in some of the white space of the Back To Black Designer Series paper. Doesn’t it add a lot to this card?
The far left strip she also colored the patterned paper with the Blendabilities to add color to the leaves and flowers.
Not the last day, but today you can also order the Gift Bow Bigz L Die at 25% off as part of the weekly special. This die will be on sale through Monday, August 4th. Here is a box I demonstrated at my party last night to show how easy gift wrap can be with this die and some of our boxes.
