Annually the group I belong to "The Crazy Stamping Ladies" put on an all day event we call "Stamp til you Cramp!". Each attendee gets to spend the day stamping several projects. This past year we had four projects; each a set of cards and a coordinating card holder. Each demonstrator makes a gift for their customer. This year we made clipboards. I used the large scallop square die cut to create the clipboard. I took cardboard which I cut in approximately 5" squares. I used Sizzix adhesive sheets to adhere the Designers Series Paper. I then ran the stack through the Big Shot. I covered a binder clip with DSP using the adhesive sheets also. Tied on a ribbon; put it in a cello bag with some shimmery crinkle and gave it to my guests. I had several different colors based on my customers likes. They turned out really cute.

I'm going to digress a bit from my usual postings about papercrafting. I have to share how proud i am of my daughter and her cheerleading squad. They took 1st place at the National Championships in Dallas, Texas last weekend. It is quite an achievement for a California team to beat the pants off those squads from down south. I couldn't be prouder of her and the girls on her team; they were amazing!
