Inspired By Stamping Release - Words of Inspiration

Hello everyone!  Time for another glimpse of a new set coming to the Inspired By Stamping store soon:  Words of Inspiration.


The set includes 6 inspirational, encouraging, supporting quotes.  When I spied beachy paper in my stash, I knew it'd be perfect for this phrase!  I decorated the swimsuits and umbrellas just a little bit, and sprinkled glitter on the beach, too.


Another item I created is a mini clipboard:


I used a sample piece of counter top material, the kind you can pick up at your local hardware store (like Wilsonart Laminate, for example).  Covered it with pretty paper, front and back, using a strong double-sided adhesive, then decorated the front with the gorgeous sentiment from IBS:


Add a binder clip from the stationery supply store using a strong glue BUT ONLY ON THE BACK OF THE CLIP - you want to be able to use the front to slip in little treasures, papers, photos, etc.

I've decorated my clip with some beautiful little paper flowers from IBS and snippets of ribbons:
