Home Sweet Home Memo Board

Hello! I hope you are doing well!  Today I'm so excited to share my first Simple Stories blog post and project with you! I love to alter almost anything, so it's a joy to be in the "altered/home décor" group of the design team! I have been wanting to transform my ordinary cork board into something fabulous! I found the Domestic Bliss collection to be just right for my memo board makeover! The fresh, beautiful patterns mixed with the fun and perfectly quirky elements make for a most delightful experience in creating!
The main section is for memos, notes and messages and the smaller section is for my weekly dinner menu at a glance. A piece of 12x12 patterned paper was used for the background on the memo section.
For the meal list/menu, the daily chart is one of the 4x6 Vertical Elements and directly above that is one of the 4x4 Elements detailed with enamel dots and clear and regular stickers.
The Epoxy Metal Clips were securely adhered to regular push pins to create an area where notes can be easily slid onto the clips and displayed.
A variety of favorite Decorative Brads, Bits & Pieces and Combo Stickers were done in the same fashion as the clips, transforming them into adorable and fun decorative push pins!
Some blank tabs and bullet elements from the 4x6 Stickers were cut out individually and a small window pouch was created to hold them. Tip: layer a piece of clear plastic over and equal sized piece of patterned paper/cardstock and fold washi tape around the edges to create a visually pleasing window pouch.
The sides of the memo board were covered with Home Sweet Home Washi Tape. It was super easy to do and really adds to the customized look and feel of the memo board.
Finally, a couple of the large floral decorative brads were added to the frame as well as a few small chipboard flowers on the frame corners, topped with an enamel dot in each flower center.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and sticking with me throughout my post! I hope you enjoyed my altered memo board and might be inspired to create something with the wonderful Domestic Bliss collection too! Happy crafting!
