Finished the Altered Memo Board....take a peek! :)

 I was really under the wire to get this challenge in during the fun
Pink By Design
2 year Anniversary Celebration
on Saturday.
It was left a bit "unfinished"
in my last post.

Originally, I only left the Altered Memo Board
as you see here . . .
(Directions and Product Descriptions are at
the bottom of this post!)

Kenzie really wanted to add some buttons in spots to spruce it up.
I personally wanted to fix the spots that didn't 
ink well,
and she said to leave it alone.
She liked the "abstract" and "distressed" look I suppose!

The more she looked at it, she wasn't real happy with how
sparkly it turned out. 
She isn't much into Glitter...
I know, and she is MY DAUGHTER?  LOL!

That's alright though.  I am sure my Step Daughter, who is 9 years old,
will adore a sparkly memo board for her room.

Kenzie picked out some fun buttons from my stash
and I plugged in my hot glue gun.
 I am actually surprised
how much they really added to the entire project.

Here is the finished Memo Board...


Should I make some more?

I bought a lot of these plain black Memo Board
last Fall  during a fun
Clearance Sale
with the intention to alter them somehow.

Any suggestions for a certain color or theme???
 Enlighten Me Please Blends!!!

I first spray painted with 
Krylon Glitter Blast spray paint (Twilight Sky),
which I was fortunate to win
during a
Glitter Blast Tuesday with Mark Montano
several months ago.
 While it was drying,
I inked up the Small Hexagons Stamp by Pink By Design 
using VersaMagic - Cloud White.
I stamped directly onto the surface
of both pencil holders.
I then used my Opaque embossing powder over the ink,
and heat embossed.
The paint dried, and my daughter and I were struggling to
get the holders screwed back
into the memo meet the challenge deadline....with only 5 minutes
left to spare.
LOL . . . .Just under the wire.

Keep Crafting


  1. Looks great!! Love all of the added embellishments on it:)


  2. I love it! I have always wanted to try that glitter spray out. Maybe I need to find something to alter and take my 50% off coupon to Joanns or Michaels and buy some spray paint?

  3. Ohhh..this turned out so cute, Jess! I am thinking one with owls would look adorable on my craftroom wall! ;)

    Love ya,

  4. This came out very nice
    Love the bling
