Altered scrapbook frame

I am so excited, I was asked by Susie to be on the "Design Team" for Scrap Happy and this is my very first submission for said "team"  Please forgive the background, I am far too tired right now to edit and crop my pictures :)

What I decided to do was an altered Scrapbook frame and turn it into a cork board. With the exception of the Spray primer, cork, & pushpins, everything I used for this project I purchased at Scrap Happy AND SO CAN YOU!!!!

Here are the ingredients for this project, 
naked scrapbook frame

12x12 piece of cork

Rolled flower dies from MFT

everyday clear pushpins

paint/paint dabbers

100% wool felt (always use this when die-cutting, it cuts crisp and doesn't stretch), your favorite papers (I used my FAVORITE, Authentique Splendid), coordinating bling, ribbons, adhesives (glue dots, Scor-tape 1/4", Ranger Glue 'n Seal Glossy, and liquid felt glue), Tim Holtz sander, and in this case some Diet Coke on ice and some U2 & Foo Fighters on the radio!  Gotta have good music!

Here is a close-up of the pushpins I made with the rolled flowers dies!

This was SO fun and easy to make and would make an awesome dorm room accessory!

Remember everything I used I got at Scrap Happy with the couple exceptions I noted.  I will have this on display at the store later this week and if you have ANY questions please feel free to comment below.  I love hearing from you, positive or constructive feedback is always welcomed.  And as always, subscribe to this blog, friend us on facebook, and sign up for our emails that are chock full of great info and coupons, first alert sales, and more!
