NSD Blog Hop for We R Memory Keepers!



Hello We R fans, and welcome to our National Scrapbook Day blog hop! If you've just arrived on my blog, you can start the blog hop HERE on the We R blog and hop through all the designers' blogs. If you arrived here from Carrie Walz's blog, you are in the right place!


For the blog hop this weekend, I wanted to make a cute little functional piece that I can use in my home. When I got the new Denim paper from WeR, I really wanted to use it with my Flower punch board and make some distressed denim roses, so I figured this would be a great little project.




I grabbed an inexpensive chalkboard from the Target Dollar Spot, We R's Denim paper, my Flower Punch Board, and some embellishments.

First, I made the denim roses using the Flower Punch Board, and I went around the edges with my Sweetheart Distress Tool to give them some fray and dimension.  Then I attached them to the chalkboard with hot glue, and added a few buttons to the center!  I loved the texture of cork with the denim, so I used some cork stickers from the Hello Darling collection as well!


Just a fun, easy project that I can use for reminders, fun quotes, or love notes to my family. :)



You know how much I LOVE my Punch Boards, now here's the best part: one lucky winner who comments on this blog post will receive a Pillow Box Punch Board from We R!
