Motivational Magnetic Board & MAMBI Giveaway

Happy first day of spring! Hope you are enjoying some warm weather today and looking forward to the change in seasons. I always seem to have lots on my to-do list when spring rolls around – getting back out in my garden, planning for the many celebrations our family has in spring, and of course, lots of spring cleaning.

Today, I thought it would be fun to share this magnetic memo board that was created for Me & My BIG Ideas using some brand new motivational stickers that have just been released. In addition to that, they have offered to give one lucky reader a chance to win a set of these new stickers.

All you need to do to be entered in the drawing is answer the following question in the comments section of this post by Tuesday, April 2, 2013. Winners will be announced here on April 3rd.

“If you could only make time for one hobby, what would it be?”

Good thing this is just a hypothetical question, huh? If I had to choose, I guess I would say stamping. Although photography, paper crafting, cooking, reading, and gardening would be close behind… followed by the hobbies I want to add like quilting, needlepoint, jewelry making… I’m so glad we don’t actually have to limit ourselves to just one!

Okay, back to today’s project. This is a combination shadow box/magnetic memo board that I found at a craft store. I covered the back with patterned paper and created an assortment of quote magnets to attach on the inside.

These felt flowers are stickers that were adhered to an adhesive-backed magnet. Stickers come in so many different shapes, sizes, and materials and make a really fun and easy way to create. You could also die cut flowers from felt and add stitching to make your own.

Buttons also make great magnets.

I really love the quotes that are on these new stickers – they would make great cards, scrapbook layouts, and home décor.

One way to add more emphasis to a quote is to cut apart each line or word.

Adding a double mat and epoxy stickers gives extra emphasis to the last line.

This is one of my favorite quotes.

Another option is to layer a quote sticker onto a tag. These can also be used as larger magnets and moved around as needed.

The frame around this quote is a sticker that is clear with black outlines… I added the color using Copic markers.

Pink wire was used to hang this quote. If you brush baby powder on the back of a sticker it will neutralize the adhesive so that it can be used more like a die cut.

I thought this would make a great gift for someone – maybe a new grad – or as wall art in a teen’s room. What do you think?

  1. That is a tough question. Especially since I’ve numerous hobbies which I enjoy doing. I would have to say card making. Not only do I get to use fabulous stickers,pretty papers and things like that but I also get to play with stamping and using art supplies. On the other hand I would miss not being able to read.

    Thanks for sharing this awesome project. I love all the detail you used. Also some of your pointers I can use in my card making. :-) Happy Spring!

  2. This is an easy question for me because it would be stamping!!! I have tried so many crafts over the years but these days it’s all stamping! I love the ease of working with paper…and the fact that I don’t have to lug a lot of equipment with me if I want to stamp away from home!

  3. So difficult to pick just one. However, I think if I was only allowed to do just one hobby, it would be Jewelry making. Why?,because you are able to combine so many different mixed medias in jewelry making.For example, paper beads, polymer clay beads, metal stamping, paper stamping almost anything can be utilized and turned into a beautiful piece of jewelry. So yes, I think Jewelry making would be the one I chose.

  4. If I could only make time for one hobby it would be scrap booking my family photos so that my kids will have them for generations to come.

  5. Easy for me…Scrapbooking! I love to preserve those memories for myself and my family for years to come! thank you for the chance to win!

  6. I hate to say but it would be quilting… I do so many things but right now I am loving quilt making the most.

  7. I love to scrapbook and make cards. I’m fortunate enough to work at Michaels and see the new products as they come in. I like teaching the class on paper crafts because I like showing my enthusiasm for the project that we’re doing! It would be great to win this and share this with my students!
