Whimsical Wednesday Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome the Whimsical Wednesday Blog Hop! If you are coming here from Cindy, then your in the right place! If not you will want to start at the beginning here! For my first project I made this refrigerator notepad holder. I cut a 5.5 X 11 inch piece of cardboard from a cereal box and covered it with pattern paper. I made a pocket for the notepad cut at 3.75 X 4.5 inches. I thought about gluing a notepad to it but then you wouldn't be able to replace it. This way you can replace the notepad when it's out of paper.For the picture I cut the frog from Paisley at 2 inches and the font was cut from Robots at .75 inches. I then took some old magnets (the ones you get in the mail with credit cards and such) and cut one in half and glued them to the back. This is a picture of it hanging on my fridge!

For my second project I made this card. I LOVE Hello Kitty....she's so cute! :) I just love scene cards and was very happy with how this one turned out. I cut HK from Hello Kitty Greetings at 3 inches and the sun at 1.5 inches. I chose not to do the black layers for the sun. The clouds were cut from Simply Charmed and the grass was cut from Paper Doll Dress Up both custom sized in my Gypsy. The mouse was cut at 1.5 inches from Four Legged Friends and I added a flower to his hands.




I hope you enjoyed my projects and now you're off to Roberta!

Great projects Gigi! Here I thought I was doing my recycling job by putting my cereal boxes in the recycling bin :) Not any more! Also never thought to actually use the magnets I get in the mail - never occurred to me to glue them on to the back of something to make it a magnet! Thanks for the inspiration - I need all the help I can get obviously :)
