My Other Creations: Clipboard Using Altenew Scrapbook Kit

This week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme is, "Start Afresh," meaning play with something fresh out of the package!  I decided to make a clipboard using some fun elements from Altenew's Scrapbook Kit.  And I love Carabelle Studio products, which I've also incorporated.

I started by covering the clipboard with a piece of polka dot paper from the scrapbook kit, which I covered the heck out of with white paint.  When that dried, I stamped some colorful scallop shapes using Carabelle Studio's Frise Nuage edge die.  I also stamped a middle section using Carabelle Studio's Mixed Media Strips.  I painted over it so you can just hints of it.  I added some patterned paper scraps from the new Happiness is Homemade paper kit from Echo Park (another awesome collection) and used Carabelle Studio's Textures 1 die set to cut the fish-tail banner out of Simon vintage paper.  I finished it off with the "Beautiful" word, also from the scrapbook kit.

Here are the items I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:

I'm excited to see what 2017 brings and wish you all the best as we embark on a new year!  Be sure to upload your "start afresh" projects to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog for your chance to win $50 to the Simon Says Stamp store.
