For this challenge, you are supposed to create 100 projects using the supplies you have before you buy more stuff. You are allowed to declare exceptions – like I said I could get more adhesive, supplies for my Stampin’ Up! classes, and page protectors for scrapbook albums. However, soon after starting the challenge, I realized I was having a hard time remembering what number I was on, and so I decided to make myself a little countdown ticker.
I found a smaller clipboard at a local craft store for $1 and so I snagged it and brought it home to decorate – hey it counts as one of my projects that way!
I dug into my retired designer paper and found that I had tons of this Junior Varsity pattern and so grabbed a pack and got to work. I covered the front and the back of the clipboard with designer paper and then used the Big Shot to cut out a title using the Go Go Boots alphabet dies I got on the Clearance Rack.
Then for the numbers, I used my Simple Numbers Bigz die to cut out two sets of 0-9 numbers. Then I created cardstock tags that could be clipped up and traded out as I worked my way through my projects.
After I finished, I thought I should have made the title or decoration on the clipboard more generic so I could use it for all kinds of other countdowns – but I guess that means I can make more and they’ll count as another project! 😉
