Whimsy August Release Showcase Day 2

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of our June Rubber stamp and  Die Release Showcase
 On Wednesday (22 August) Whimsy Stamps released this month's new rubber designs, new Shapeology dies, new digital papers and new Shape EZ by TLC.
 From then until 28 August the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new goodies with a daily mini blog hop and I am part of today’s hop!
*****************
I am  getting organized for the kids to return to school and one of the things I like is a white board to keep us all on track.  I bought one to put on the inside of the pantry door, a place that is well used!  I was at a loss as to where to put the markers when I came up with this idea.  It can be mounted on the door or even held up with a pin on the cork part of the board.
I used an empty Ink Cartridge box as I thought the shape would work perfectly. I pulled it apart carefully and adhered the paper ( MME Abbey Road) with a glue gun.  The hot glue makes the card super strong, perfect for this project.
Next, the fun part, decorating it!
I used Whimsy Stamps Craft Star by Kenny K coloured with Copics and Prismacolor pencils.
The cute Scrabble-like tiles are also from this release by Whimsy called Spell it out by Raindrop Echo Designs.
I finished it off with plenty of bling to fit into our challenge on Cute Card Thursday this week!
