Welcome to Paper Crafting World and Cooking With Cricut’s Home Décor Blog Hop! Our Design Teams are so excited to bring you a two-day hop that focuses on projects for your home – that’s right no cards or scrapbook layouts in this hop! You should have arrived here from visiting Court at Court's Craft Corner. If you’ve joined us in mid-Hop and would like to check out all the other fantastic projects head on over to Melinda’s Paper Crafting World (http://www.cookingwithcricut.com) and start at the beginning.
For this hop I had so many different ideas of what I wanted to make, but landed on the one I actually NEEDED at my house - a way to keep my family organized. I spend a lot (probably too much) time on Pinterest and have been looking at how other moms seem to keep it together. I have adapted all the projects I have seen to come up with this for my family.
Here it is in use:
It was pretty easy to make and I love how it looks (and I hope I keep more organized with it!)
I bought the white board for about $10 at Target and bought a roll of their paper tape (found in the bulletin board section with all the magnets and tacks). I used the tape to mark out different sections on the board. The pad of paper is from teh dollar bin at Target as well (I bought several of the same one because I like how it matches, lol).
The menu portion is a take on a system I had already been using. All of our meal ideas are written on the turquoise tabs. (These are cut from the Wild Card cartridge). Using magnets I just put up all of our meals for the week right on the board. (The days of the week are circles from Cricut Classic Font, flowers from Mothers Day Bouquet and letters from Calligraphy Collection).
I am also a couponer (not extreme by any sense of the word, but I shop at a few different stores each week and have piles of coupons around the house pulled out for when I shop. So, I added a coupon section to my board. There is a heavy duty magnet for each of the major stores I shop at so i can pull coupons from my coupon filer and put them up on the board to grab before I head out shopping. The cut is from Mother's Day Bouquet and I just hand-wrote in the name of the stores on them.
All the words on this board are typed from Calligraphy Collection and I used my Gypsy to weld he letters together.
