How to Create a Magnetic Tray

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today sharing how to create a magnetic try using Deflecto’s Craft Magnetic Sheets.

Let’s Take a Look:

I created this tray for my new office at my new job.  I’m so thankful for my new job and my new opportunity at a new hospital closer to home.  You can’t bet that.

Each morning I will write a note to myself documenting what I’m thankful for.  I will complete one for each day so at the end of the month, I will add them to my grateful notebook.

Here’s How I Created This Tray:

I collected all the supplies that I needed to create this tray:

Deflecto Magnetic Sheets
Deflecto’s VersaGrip Magnetic Sign Holder
Warm and Cozy Pattern Paper

Craft Fantastic Glass pieces
Tombow Tape Runner
Wilson Cookie Sheet

To start, measure the cookie sheet so that the pattern paper can be cut to that size.

Cut the pattern paper and the magnetic sheet to 12 x 7.

Add adhesive to the back of the pattern paper using  Tombow Permanent Adhesive Plus.  Once that is done, adhere the paper onto the magnetic sheet.

Once that is done, adhere the paper onto the magnetic sheet.

Place the large mat inside the tray.

Once that is done, create sentiment magnetics and place them on the tray.

For the notepad magnetic holder, pull use Deflecto’s VersaGrip Magnetic Sign Holder.  Take your time and pull the long metal pieces out and clip the clip to the magnetic base.

Glass magnets can be created using the magnetic craft sheets.

Nice and easy!!

Let’s take another look:

So what do you think? Would you create a magnetic tray for your home or office? I would love to hear from you.

Altenew October 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s October 2017 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the all of the new Embossing Powders and the Scrapbook Collection.  If you’ve arrived here from the talented Dana Gong blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Scrapbook Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my DIY Matchbook Mini Album:

Our Family Scrapbook Collection

I used the new scrapbook collection called Our Family Scrapbook Collection to create this DIY Matchbook Mini Album.

This scrapbook collection is right on trend with fresh colors, watercolored elements, geometric designs, and florals (of course!).  The papers and embellishments have been designed to help you document your precious family memories, but are versatile enough to use on any layout, journal, or card project.

The kit contains:

36 Sheets of 12″x12″ patterned paper (2 of each design)
One 3″x4″ photopolymer stamp set
12 3″x4″ watercolor journaling cards
One 8.5″x11″ sheet of 20 cardstock stickers
One 8.5″x11″ sheet of 15 cardstock die cuts
One 8.5″x11″ sheet of 16 chipboard stickers
Two 6″x12″ sheets of chipboard alphabet stickers
One 5″x6″ sheet of 17 adhesive wood veneers
One 4″x6″ sheet of adhesive enamel dots
One metal die (approx. 3.5″x4.5″)
One roll of washi tape (15mm x 10m)

Here’s how I created this DIY Matchbook Mini Album:

Last week I saw this amazing idea created by Aly from We R Memory Keepers and asked if I could CASE her idea.  I love what she created and wanted to give it a try.

For this project, I used one sheet of cardstock from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection.  It created the cover of the matchbook and the pages inside.

To create the cover, I cut a piece of cardstock to 3 x 9. Scored at 3 5/8, 3 3/4, 7 3/4 and 7 7/8.

Our Family Scrapbook patten paper

To create the pages inside, cutting the same piece of cardstock 9 times to 2 7/8 x 3 7/8.

Cut your photos to 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 and adhere one to each page.  Use the We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile, punch holes at the bottom of each page.

Add word stickers and some of the Our Family Enamel Dots to add texture to each page.

Round the corners of the cardstock and photos using the We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper.

Our Family Scrapbook Collection

Punch holes in the bottom portion of the cover and the pages with two brads.

Our Family Enamal dots

To dress up the cover, add the tree die cut to the front of the matchbook.

Measure the tree and trim it so that the two pieces meet when the matchbook is closed.

Our Family Chipboard Stickers

Nice and easy!!

{Clean and Simple} – Cherish

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

For this cue card I went with Darkroom Door Fine Butterflies Stamp Set paired with Altenew More Than Words Stamp Set.

When I think of the word cherish, I think of something special. Love is special and so are are butterflies.  I thought about leaving the butterfly uncolored but quickly changed my mind.  Watercoloring this image really made the image pop.  I used Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers.

Nice, simple and easy.

What do you think?
