Family Command Center
This project post is a part of a paid marketing campaign with Snap. Although this post is sponsored the project idea and all opinions expressed are my own.
Yesterday I shared my Welcome Spring mini pallet art I created using Amy Tangerine paper crafting products. Today, I am sharing our newly updated family command center!
I was lucky enough to be chosen to review some wonderful new products from the Amy Tangerine line! I received a box full of Amy Tangerine Plus One goodies that will be available for purchase on HSN March 24th. This collection was released in the Winter of 2013 and sold out in most retail outlets. At just under $20 these bundles include a basic kit, an embroidery kit, an embellishment kit and a stamping kit! There are 5(!) discounted bundles available, as well as the SOLD OUT Plus One Project Life Mini Kit at a discounted rate.
Once spring rolls around, things tend to get a little more hectic, while we long for warm summer nights. We have 4 boys, two in baseball, one in High School prep, and my hubby and I each run our own businesses. Calendars, lists, schedules…those are necessary, and sometimes UGLY evils. I have a few old dry erase boards left over from the kids, and I knew I could make it a useful tool in our everyday life. Once I received my box of supplies from Amy Tangerine, I KNEW exactly what I was going to do! Armed with scrap book paper, the most adorable mini clothes pins, spray glue, my glue gun, super cute buttons, and tiny washi tape rolls, I got to work. This project took me about 30 minutes, and I am so pleased with the transformation!
To make this dry erase board less of an eye sore and something I would be happy to have hanging on my wall or refrigerator, I chose a piece of scrapbook paper that matched our home…I LOVE this color! After I chose the best color, I cut the paper like a photo mat, leaving a square “hole” in the middle. Once I test fit it over my dry erase board, I sprayed it with adhesive and quickly applied the paper to the dry erase board. I added washi tape to the inside frame to embellish it, as well as to help keep the paper secure after a lot of use. I hot glued mini clothespins to the top for papers, or receipts, and I hot glued magnets to the Amy Tangerine buttons I was sent. I used the buttons in the corners of the dry erase board too for an added pop of color and fun! Finally, I used the letter stickers and a paper brad to jazz up the dry erase pen! My kids love this and are currently fighting over who can have their paper hang on the board today!
Come back tomorrow to see more projects with Amy Tangerine products, and if you missed yesterday’s post, check it out here!
