Welcome to the 12 Days of Doodlebug – DAY 2


I am so excited about this 12 day series that I am doing here on my blog – I LOVE DOODLEBUG and I have been a user and collector for the past 15 years!! Anything made by them delights and excites me – I love their bright, happy colors and incredibly cute icons and borders they make!! I thought doing this series would be a perfect way for me to lead up to and celebrate my birthday with you – There will be prizes – more on that at the end!!!

DAY 2 – Altered Clipboard Decoration

Please click on picture to have it made bigger – so you can see the details!!


I used this adorable 5″ by 7″ clipboard from Pebbles, Inc:


that I decided to spruce up for a decoration!! I looked at this sheet of Doodlebug – Hello Sunshine! Designer Paper:


I knew that any of these 4 by 6 images would look cute on this clipboard. I chose the 2nd one down on the right side!! I cut it out and layered it on a piece of Blueberry Doodlebug cardstock that measured 4 1/2″ by 7 1/2″. I left it bigger on the top on purpose so that I could use this Scalloped edge punch from Stampin’ Up! to create the top border!


I adhered the 4 by 6 image I had chosen to the blue background. I added 2 stickers from the This n’ That sticker sheet to the bottom – one was the word beautiful and the second one was a tag that said sunshine!! I added a little piece of twine to the hole in the tag sticker!

Then I cut 7″ lengths of ribbons from my ribbon scrap jar in coordinating colors and tied them to the circle in the top metal part of the clipboard! I tied them with double knots and then trimmed them!! I had a small plastic easel and that is what my finished product rests on!! Please click on the pictures to make them bigger and easier to see the details!!!

Sounds like a lot of work but it really was pretty easy – the hardest part was choosing an image!!

There you go – I used Doodlebug products to make a Home Decor project!! Stay tuned for Day 3 where I will be adding one more thing made for my Holiday/Seasonal Decor table!! And I will post a picture of how it all looks together!!

As a bonus to this event – I am giving away Prizes/Gifts to Celebrate My BIRTHDAY!!!!!

The Prizes I will be giving away will be pictured soon –

A Corner Chomper, a $25 gift certificate to any store, A Stampin’ Up! stamp set, An Avery Elle mini stamp with die

    Oh, for gosh sake’s, Taunya; you’ve created entirely new definitions for cute and adorable! The expressions on the faces of the ladybug, butterfly and sun are simply too precious! I’m sitting here wearing a big goofy grin, just in seeing them smiling away! Delightful! Transforming this ‘simple’ clipboard into something with jazz and pizzazz…well, only YOU my friend, have the insight and creativity to do that! Delightful in every single way (you even decorated the clippy part…sweet!)
