bag check!

hello all!

one of my students has realized that she is missing her crop-o-dile and believes that she left it or lent it out at the halloween altered book class.

i didn’t see it at the store when i cleaned up, so i am thinking someone may have accidentally taken it home. NO ACCUSATIONS of theft here! REALLY!

in a chaotic class like my altered book classes, it’s easy for supplies to get mixed up. so PLEASE check your bags and see if you have an extra crop-o-dile if you attended this class.

if you do find it, just contact me using the “contact me” tab at the top of the page and let me know.

thanks in advance!

hi ya! you have arrived at my blog: tami sanders * paper crafter, you should have just come from the Flores Tanis Studio Blog – welcome!

my project is a memo board made using the 12 X 12 Scrapbook Page Mount from Smoothfoam and inks and more from Clearsnap

clearsnap_smoothfoam_blog hop_tami sanders_crafters ink_colorbox_dorm deco_memo board - wm

i needed a lightweight memo board that would easily attach to a cabinet in my studio without damaging it. i didn’t want to use a nail or something similar, i was thinking more along the lines of poster tac or one of those non-damaging hooks. most traditional memo boards are too heavy to attach that way.

i started with a plain piece of unbleached canvas, then spritzed it using several different colors of ColorBox® Spritzers: Pumpkin Pie, Pinkolicious, Lemon Drop, Mermaid and Grasshopper, the added a stenciled pattern using Black ColorBox® Crafter’s Ink applied using the ColorBox® Stylus & Tips.

i think this board would well in dorm rooms also; where you have to be careful not to damage the walls.

i put together a Snapguide that shows how to make this project step-by-step, you can view it here…

Here is the HOP LIST…

if you jumped in at the middle, or just happened to stumple upon the hop, please begin at the Smoothfoam Blog.
