Stampin' Up! Memo Board

     At our team demonstrator meeting yesterday we discussed ways to help us get our business where we'd like it to be.  Of course we all love to be making a million dollars a year, but for me, that's not a realistic goal at this point in my life.  I'd be happy to make a little more a month and to add a card club to my monthly activities.  These will be my goals this year.

     Also at our meeting, Sally Chuchman, my upline, brought a memo board she made.  I instantly fell in love with it.  So, I went home, stopping at a big box store to pick up a canvas and some quilting batting, and went home and made my own.  I plan to use mine as a visualization board for my business goals.

    Here is my memo board.  What do you think?

      I also made fabric flowers as an embellishment to my board.  I followed the tutorial in the video I posted yesterday - HERE.  They were so easy to make.  As you can see, my flowers are two different sizes.  To make them different sizes, use a wider or thinner strip of fabric.  I did do like they suggested in the video, I made two flowers for each one flower.  They ended up being too thin for my liking with just one flower.  I really like how the blue one turned out.

     Here are close ups of my fabric flowers:


CARD STOCK:  Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, & a tiny scrap of Twitterpated Designer Series Paper

FABRIC:  Twitterpated & Springtime Vintage

ACCESSORIES:  Antique Brads, Fire Square Brads, Flower Designer Brads, & 3/8" Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon

TOOLS:  Big Shot & Fun Flowers Bigz Die

NON-SU! TOOLS:  11 x 14 painter's canvas, quilting batting, hot glue gun & staple gun

     I plan to make a second memo board.  This went together so quick and easy.  Watch out - memo boards galore!

Happy Sunday!

I love your memo board Sandy. I have 2 left-over canvases from a couple years ago when I made advent calendars. There is a blank wall in my scraproom that would look fablous with one of these memo boards on it. Thanks for the idea.
