Just Delightful!

I did it! I cut into the pretty papers from the Just Delightful scrappin' kit. I used lots of the adhesive backed die cuts and as you can see from my above photo, I still have more than half of the kit left to make some scrap book pages & cards.

First I made another altered clip board. The other three I made, I gave away as gifts...this one I get to keep! It turned out so cute I'm glad I get to keep it for myself. I'm not sure if I'm going to use it in my work space downstairs or in my kitchen. I attached magnets to the back in case I want to use it on the fridge.

The die cut that says "notes" is just perfect for the post it notes don't you think? I love the little adhesive rick rack border and all the flowers. I used some Rich Regals brads, a Bashful Blue button, and lots of grosgrain and gingham ribbons to finish it off. I stamped the little calendar pages with the Delight In Life and All Through the Year stamp sets.

I also decorated the On Board Bitty Book using this kit. I really love the way the little book turned out. It has a little sleeve that it slides into which I also decorated. This cute little set would make a nice gift. Or maybe I'll just keep that too! ;-)

I'm not sure what I'm going to put in the little book yet, so I left the page protectors empty for now. I'm most likely going to fill it with wallet sized photos. I used decoupage medium to seal both of these projects to protect the papers so they will still look great for a long time.

When I finished these projects I used a few of the left over paper scraps to make a cute card. Since there wasn't much stamping on the first two projects I did, I decided I would stamp a background on the card and also stamp the main image using the matching Delight in Life stamp set.

I stamped the big flower in Versa Mark then embossed in white. I thought this matched the papers better than stamping in black before water coloring. I made the scalloped border cutting out half circles with my 1/2" circle punch and then stamping a little circle from the background in each one.
I had fun getting creative with the Just Delightful Scrappin' Kit and I'm happy with the way my projects turned out.
