My 'Cookie Lee' Jewelry Clipboards!

There’s an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth:
 A right time for birth and another for death,
A right time to plant and another to reap,
A right time to kill and another to heal,
A right time to destroy and another to construct,
A right time to cry and another to laugh,
A right time to lament and another to cheer,
A right time to make love and another to abstain,
A right time to embrace and another to part,
A right time to search and another to count your losses,
A right time to hold on and another to let go,
A right time to rip out and another to mend,
A right time to shut up and another to speak up,
A right time to love and another to hate,
A right time to wage war and another to make peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Welcome to our 2013 Die Cut Tuesday New Release and Link Up over at www.MyPaperCrafting.com !  Be sure and pop over there and see what Melin and our other Designers have set up for this – our last Tuesday Showcase for a while – and the FREE New Release for today.  Melin has decided to suspend our ‘regular schedule’ for the summer, at least, for her Personal Reasons.  This week will be the last of our ‘regular Tuesday posts in conjunction with her blog’ for a while.  I will continue to create projects and post here several times weekly and we’ll all see what our schedules hold later this fall, as to whether and how we continue together.  We may do some ‘special posts’ at various times through the summer, so be sure to check back often. 

For today’s post I made 2 items which are representative of some Changes in My Life, too!  I have recently decided to add being a ‘Cookie Lee’ Jewelry Consultant to my ‘List-of-things-I-do-to-support-myself’!  In setting things up here to be ready for holding Parties, I decided to decorate some $$ Store Clipboards to use.  The Small one is to hold the Opportunity Slips used for Drawings and collecting Info.  The Large one is for me to use for my Notes and writing up Orders.   I used papers in the ‘Cookie Lee’ company color scheme – Hot Pink and Black – and some of Melin’s lovely, lacey cutting files which I Mod-Podged (my homemade version!) to make them sturdily useful.

Before -


I first painted the clipboards with Black acrylic paint.  I then adhered the base papers with ‘my Mod-Podge.’  For the Small one, I used a Hot Pink flourished print, distressed the edges and then inked them with Black ink.  I added an element in black from the ‘Flourished Baroque Elements 2 cf’ to the bottom.  I adhered 2 Black Gems to cover the 'screw holes' at the top.
Back side of each -

For the Large one, I adhered a Black paisley print.  Then I cut 3 sections of border trim in Hot Pink paisley print from the ‘Elements Deco 13 cf.’  I added several coats of my Mod-Podge on each one, letting them dry thoroughly in between.  I adhered 2 Pink Gems to cover the 'screw holes' at the top.

I had thought of adding the ‘Cookie Lee’ logo to them, but decided against it, for ‘time’s sake.’  Then – after taking the photos - I discovered the ‘logo template’ in my New Recruit pack, so I have included them via PSE 10 for the photos -  and I will print little labels for the Clipboards soon.  ;-}
