Pinkalicious Blog Hop!

Happy Friday the 13th...and, welcome to the first Pinkalicious Blog Hop of the New Year! You should've arrived here from Courtney's AMAZING blog, Court's Crafts! If you'd like to get back to the beginning of the hop...just click here: My Pink Stamper!

My 'clean slate' project is for a large whiteboard calendar at my office. My job is very technical...so, the calendar is filled with scribbled on technical information...dates, deadlines, milestones, etc. (I'm sorry I can't show you a picture of it...some of the information is confidential.) I'm finding that some of the 'FUN' information is getting lost in all the 'technical'.

What I've done is to create a variety of fun, colorful labels that we'll be able to use, and reuse, on the calendar to highlight some of the fun things.



'Celebrate' and 'Party Time' can be used to highlight events...but...they can also be used as a fun way to celebrate milestones that are accomplished and when deadlines are met. 'Birthday Goodies' and 'Enjoy' will help identify special days when treats have been brought in for the team.

Materials Used:
Cricut Cartridge: Art Philosophy for all the labels
Paper: American Crafts White Cardstock, Recollections Patterned Paper
Buttons, Ribbons and Twine for embellishing
Sentiment Stamps: My Pink Stamper - School Days and Yummylicious

Thanks for hopping along! You're next stop is to Carissa's wondeful blog - Sprinkled with Glitter!

These should bring cheer to your board! Great job!

Julie said...

Love the idea. I've had to decorate a number of boards at work myself. This was before I got my Cricut. Having the Cricut really broadens what you are able to do for projects like that. I love to make decorations for my cubicle at work.

I like your sentiments for your board at work. I have thought of doing something like that for my whiteboard on the fridge at home. This has motivated to get on it.
