Altered Clipboards - Double Page Layout Week

This week is double page layout week here at Daily Life - Bits & Pieces, and each day I am sharing a two page layout inspired by a sketch from the BPC Double Take workshop I took last fall. I pulled out the sketches and several batches of photos recently and created all new layouts inspired by the sketches.

Some of you may remember the altered clipboards I made as Christmas gifts a few years ago. I pulled these photos from my 2010 storage binder and set to work.

 Journaling reads: This was the first year I've ever hand made all my Christmas gifts. These altered clipboards took a couple of weeks to create as I wanted each one to be personalized. Honestly I was a little nervous about how they would be received, but everyone seemed pleased and I've noticed some of them in use lately!

As you can see, I am still enjoying my new found addiction to washi tape! I pleated the green chevron patterned washi tape to create a rounded border for my title block. What have you used your washi tape for lately?

Lovely, Melissa :) My washi tape? Um.... I've taken it out and admired it a few times, does that count?!

I remember those gorgeous clipboards from when you first posted them! Haven't used washi tape since Corsicana, but then, my paper scrapping since then has been very limited.

I love the colors for this layout and definitely remember the clipboards as I was making them too. Last year I made them for a homemade holiday gift exchange. Now I'm making them for a Christmas show I'm doing.
