Christmas with the Cricut Saturday's Gift

HI everyone. Today is the last day for my CWTC Projects. I want to thank Joy, Melanie and Tammy at CWTC and McKay at Provo Craft and for this opportunity to be a Guest Designer.
I have truly enjoyed it, as I have challenged myself to think " out of the box".

Today's project features my Gift for Saturday. I used both the Winter Woodland and the Mini Monograms Cartridges for this project.

You are probably wondering what in the world this is? Well my little girl actually designed this and she is 11 years old! I have to give her all the credit for this one! This is a "triple Clipboard" from Stampin' Up. Isn't it cute with those three clips! She suggested using the houses from Winter Woodland and putting one under each clip. She has made one up prior to this and I will show this at another time. You should scroll down and see the cakes she decorated!
After this was finished we printed out some calendar "clipboard sheets" from the computer. The third spot will hold some Post-it note pads. I also made some little boxes by scoring some paper (idea from Splitcoaststampers) and then added little tags using Mini Mongrams. The boxes are shown below and can hold the post it notes.

Each year, I make a new little "Gift List" book. I think the kids are "on to me" now and know where to look for what gifts I have bought them! I used the SU Spiral Punch for the edges, so easy to alter this little notebook with this handy, dandy punch. Here is my favorite little Snowman, again! I love the font from this Cart!

Put it all together and you have a really nice gift for someone! I think I want to keep it for myself!

Materials Used:
Winter Woodland Cartridge
Mini Monograms Cartridge

Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses Patterned Paper
Spiral Notebook to alter. I have tons of these in my stash
The following items are all from Stampin' Up
Chocolate Chip, Whisper White and Pretty in Pink Cardstock
Ribbon (retired)
Felt Snowflakes, and Crystal embellishments ( retired)
Whisper White Craft Ink to "paint" the clipboard
On Board Triple Clipboard
Spiral Punch

Live Love and Scrap said...

Hi Barb,
Thanks for coming by my blog and for the super sweet comment =)
I have to be honest, when I first got my Gypsy, I didnt "get" it. I read everyone's posts on the Cricut MB and they were so excited and I thought, I must be missing something!!! It wasnt until I just started messing around with it and then it just clicked and I LOVE it!!!

I was actually thinking of doing a video on how I use it, but I never thought I would do tutorials since I learn from everyone else =)
We'll see....

thanks again,

Hello! said...

Barb, your clipboard project is really cute! All of your projects this week "rocked"! Can't wait to see what other creations you come up with. I'll be keeping an eye out for that "snowman" --- cuz he's really cute. ;-)

Hello! said...

Barb, my username showed up as: "Hello". It's me, Ladybug.
Very strange, eh?


Ladybug, so weird that you are showing up as Hello!!! Well Hello ladybug!!!
