Simple Summer Ideas, *NEW* Magazine and Winners!

Hi Everyone

A couple of super quick and easy ideas today - great for using up scraps or when you want a quick idea to brighten up your fridge or filing cabinet.

Polaroid Style Fridge Magnet Frames
These were really easy to make. I cut out some Polaroid style frames from layers of cardstock and glued 2 together for extra thickness.


I used some paper, stickers and chipboard from the Hello Summer Collection from Echo Park to decorate the frames and added an adhesive magnetic strip to the back. These make awesome gifts for grandparents who get tons of pics via email - but don't print many out!



Fridge Magnets
I picked these photo fridge magnets up at the dollar store and used some spare stickers to decorate them. They have been brightening up my fridge all winter here in NZ!




New Magazine
There is a new online magazine on the way - jam packed with fabulous projects, tutorials and great papercrafting inspiration. They will be looking for submissions too for the first 2013 issue, so check out the Facebook page here and the website here - which leads to my...

Competition
OK - you guys were SO AWESOME in helping to boost PaperHaus Magazine on Facebook - that I am going to send out THREE - not one 6x6 paper pads.

The first winner is Sheetal Shah who receive the Cosmo Cricket pad but I will also be sending Echo Park Dots and Stripes paper pads to Clare Tomonaga and Vicki Parker. Email me here with your address please!


Please post a comment with any questions :-)
