Beau Chateau Message Board

This is the message board I made from a $1.99 chalkboard!  (Don’t you love that!) 

I took the frame apart, painted and crackled it – made everything to go on it and voila!  A Message Board!  Here’s the details – On the right hand side I stamped the large image from Elements of Style in each corner in Vanilla Craft Ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. 

I stamped Notes using the new Letter It alphabet and adhered it to the board with Dimensionals.

Then I covered a piece of cardboard with batting and the Beau Chateau fabric, woven some vanilla seam binding over it and added the Antique Brads to make the memory board. 

This little note uses the new Designer frame embossing folder and Four Frames to make a 3 x 3 note.  The envelope behind it is made with Pink Pirouette DSP.

This is from the Beau Chateau Side Notes.  I added a lace ribbon made with the Victorian lace ribbon, a rhinestone and a flower from Floral Fusion die.  It’s held on with a mini library clip. 

This tiny pennant banner is held on by the new mini clothes pins that I covered with Beau Chateau DSP (you can call me crazy here!)  The other piece is another Side Note. 

And this is a paper flower made from loops of card stock and topped with a Triple Blossom punch.

The very last thing I did was hand three 3D flowers made again from the Triple Layer Blossom punch (3 flowers per flower!) from Baker’s Twine down the side of the board.

It’s a lot of stuff on one board!

On another note – Samantha is almost home!  They were delayed again in LA and had to spend the night. (sigh)  But if all goes well today, she will fly to Dallas and then Louisville and I can go get her!  She loved Australia – but the travel has been ghastly.  She’s anxious to get home and I’m anxious to have her home!

Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran
