Boulder Innovations magnet board (Project 69)

While I was at the Scrapbooksteals retreat in Utah, Kristy Lee asked a few of us to decorate a Boulder Innovations magnet board for a future blog post. I was a little nervous about coming up with something creative enough but also so excited to get my hands on one of these magnet boards! I knew almost immediately that I wanted to use Authentiques Gathering line. It's such a beautiful line that I was excited about being able to display it instead of pack it away in an album.
I started by inking the edges of the pieces I planned to use. Then I used spray adhesive to attach the paper to both the base piece and the metal. When I attached the metal sheet to the base I offset it a little to leave more room for my friends title. I used a die cut from the Gathering line on the square magnet that came with the board and also attached a few diction stickers to a magnet sheet I had lying around.

I added two more die cuts on the top left and stitched some matching ribbon to them. I finished up by adding some metal photo corners and my actual photos. I'm so happy with how the magnet board turned out and now it sits in my scrap room where I can see it daily!


  1. I love it! Thanks again for helping me out my friend. <3

  2. Are you kidding? I'm still thrilled you asked me! And now my picutre of us has a special spot in my scrap room! :)
