Love the Triple Clip!

A friend of mine had really wanted to attend my clipboard project class but due to some health complications she really can't complete the project on her own.
So I had her select the paper she liked the best and I agreed to make one up for her.

I'm so glad she picked Le Jardin paper from Stampin Up. I'm just tickled pink with how this came out and it was so fun to do. After a few days of being sick and lazy on the couch, it felt great to get back to work!

To begin, I held the clips open with twist ties from bread bags so that I could ink around them. Then used stampin sponges and q-tips to get in all the crevices and in between the clips.

Using a Stampin Up Bashful Blue craft pad, I smooshed and twisted the pad all across the top half of the frame. Yes just, smoosh and twist, smoosh and twist. I then went over any light spots with a stampin sponge. I love how these ink up, it has a really soft, sueded texture.

I applied the designer paper to the bottom half of the board using Stampin Up greeting glue. I also used Greeting Glue to adhere the designer paper to the chipboard accents. Threaded the buttons with hemp twine and attached them to the chipboard with glue dots.

When you adhere the chipboard elements, just be sure to anchor them on the bottom half of the element leaving room for the photos to be tucked inside. I used pop up glue dots on the bottom half of the flower, and moved my photo corner to the very edge of the mat so that it wouldn't interfere with photo placement.
I added the title "Happiness" on a chipboard slider from the OnBoard Accents that I had lying on my desk covered it with bashful blue craft and then once it was dry I stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink. I added the wide grosgrain ribbon through the slider and then added a jumbo eyelet on each side, threaded the ribbon through and secured it on the other side with a pop up glue dot. I tucked a glue dot underneath the slider as well to give it a little dimension and so that it won't interfere with the photo placement.
I hope she likes it, this one was really hard to give up. To quote Phoebe from Friends "I have a secret.... I want to keep it."
