Let's Hop with Clear Scraps!

Hey everybody!  All week long Stampendous and Clear Scraps have been collaborating to bring you some awesome eye candy.  Today we are having a blog hop for your enjoyment and to give you the opportunity to win an amazing prize package from Stampendous, Clear Scrap and Tsukeniko.  Each of us on the Stampendous Design Team were given an acrylic and chipboard album from Clear Scraps and some awesome inks from Tsukeniko.  I decided that rather than do an album I wanted to do something a little more simple and will also help me keep track of birthdays each month.  Here's my dry erase birthday board with plenty of room to write dates and names.

These are really a lot of fun as you are only limited by your own imagination.  As I was looking at the pieces of my album, I thought the piece I used as my top looked a lot like the top of a cupcake.  That got me thinking and this is the result!  I used papers from My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary collection, stamps were Party Invite and 15 Candles from Stampendous and stamped with Staz-On Jet Black Ink from Tsukeniko.  I used a variety of Stickles, Ribbons and Rhinestones for bling and the cuteness factor! 

I cut my paper to match my pieces and layered the bottom pieces.  I stamped my images prior to actually attaching the paper to the acrylic so I could flip each piece over and fill in the stamped image with Stickles.  Once the Stickles dry attach the paper to the acrylic with glue dots.  Cover your glue dots that are visible with rhinestones.  Attach the two pieces with large rings and decorate with ribbons.  Using a Crop-A-Dile, punch two holes for the ribbon to hang it, add ribbon and voila!  For the final touch, cover a dry erase marker with paper that matches (I also added a bit of ribbon), add some velcro to the pen and your board to hold it and you never have to look for your marker, it's right where it needs to be!  Simple, right!?

Here's another view that shows the top.
