April Blog Hop Entry

Altered Clipboard

Here is my entry for this months Blog Hop with Simply Scrapping Crafts.  I have really enjoyed this site and look forward to hopefully working with them in the near future. 

This altered project is a regular clipboard that I decoupaged with paper by My Minds Eye called "Lost and Found"  This is such beautiful paper accented with gorgeous glitters.  I painted and distressed the clip of the board and embellished it with Mulberry paper roses by Recollections ( Michael's product.)  This line of paper comes with a matching acrylic stamp set and I used the birdcage to stamp each page of the jr note pad which I had cut in half to create a slender writing surface.  I also embellished with other petite flowers and pearls.  I had a wonderful time creating this piece of art with this months blog in mind.

Well that's it for now keep following the other entries for more exciting ideas, I know I am!



  1. This is a lovely card. I am a newbie in scrapbooking, and am curious how you make a template for the bird cage? It is so cute!

  2. This card is outstanding to say the least. Love the coloring, flowers, bird. Love it to bits. Well done Maggie
