A Must....For List Makers!! PP182

Hey there! 

Today's creation is using the gorgeous colour palette from the Paper Players.

I just LOVE the colour palette this week - any of you regular followers know that I'm on a bit of a Crisp Cantaloupe kick at the moment. I was actually admiring (and almost bought) a top in a store on Saturday which had Cantaloupe and Midnight Muse paired up - it was beautiful. 

So this colour combo would make a beautiful card but I had picked up a nice champagne gold frame that I wanted to make into a "To Do" board. It seemed only natural to do it up with the Crisp Cantaloupe and Midnight Muse and add some more gold in there too. Here's the finished article. (sorry for the less than amazing photos - its a dark and miserable day here and the light in my room is less than perfect for photos!)

Cardstock: Midnight Muse
DSP: Sweet Sorbet (SAB), Gold Fancy Foil Vellum
Big Shot: Bigz Alphabet Typeset
Punch: Boho Blossoms
Accessories: Metallic Mini Clothespins
Other: Frame

This frame was just a cheap frame I picked up for £5 - and its big! It'll hold a 12"x10" photo in there for you so it means there's plenty of space for writing that forever uberlong to do list!

I chose probably my favourite sheet of paper in SAB's Sweet Sorbet collection and just cut some letters with the big shot alphabet (its been a while since I cracked these out!) I decided I wanted a bit more of a gold touch to this so go tthe chance to add some of the gold foil vellum - isn't this just to die for!? What I especially love is that I managed to punch the heart vellum with the boho blossoms so there's just a single heart in the centre. 

At that point I was finished. Ish. I saw the metallic clothes pins laying there and thought oh what a brilliant idea - I could hot glue some to the bottom of the frame to clip important piece of paper etc to. 

I'm just over the moon at how well this turned out and really hope it'll keep me a little more organised!

Happy Stampin',


  1. Darling project, Amanda! What a clever use of the colors--I love that you used them for a home decor item. The metallic clothespins is a genius idea! So glad you joined us at The Paper Players!

  2. I love the to do board. What a great use of the colors. I love the little pegs at the bottom, too. Such a great project! So glad you shared it with the Paper Players this week

  3. How very cool! I hope you will think of us at the Paper Players each time you put something on your "to do" list, LOL! Thanks for playing with us this week!
