Definitely Decorative Kitchen Magnet Board


I am a home decor junkie. I love looking through interior design magazines, home decor store catalogs, AND our very own Stampin' Up! "Definitely Decorative" decor elements catalog. I think using Decor Elements is a wonderful way to add your personal touch to your own home. I love the results I get when I combine Definitely Decorative products with my own taste and style, because I get something truly unique and handmade, fits my space, and expresses my creativity in my home decor.

When I saw the "Eat" vinyl, the first thing that popped into my head was making a cute recipe card stand. Cooking is not my "thing", so I'm always looking for ways to add a little more pizazz to my routine. By having a cute recipe stand (that I made myself!) that fits my style and has some "panashe" might make it more fun, right? Plus, I have been meaning to make a magnet board to pin up a list of 'stuff' I need to buy so I stop forgetting all the little things!

This adorable countertop magnet board certainly fits the bill. Cottage Wall DSP comes to the rescue once again (what doesn't look cute with cottage wall DSP on it!!). To view more of my projects using Cottage Wall DSP CLICK HERE.

To create fabulous magnets, a little chipboard and DSP will do the trick! Helpful Hint: adhere DSP to chipboard first, then run through your Big Shot for perfectly crafted magnet toppers like my butterfly and scallop square "Enjoy" magnets.

As you may have noticed, I really like these snazzy little ribbon bow ties! If you do too, feel free to check out my picture tutorial to learn how to make them.

I just found your blog & this is adorable! If you don't mind me asking, what type of surface did you use for the magnetic board & how did you use the window sheets in your project? Love your magnet idea too!

Thanks for stopping by and saying hi! I used a clear acrylic 8x10 stand alone picture frame, cut a thin sheet of metal, adhered old olive card stock to the back of the metal (so the metal wouldn't show) and slid it between the acrylic (where a picture would normally go). I used window sheets on the “Enjoy” magnet. There is green DSP covered by the window sheet which has the white “Enjoy” stamped on it.

Does that help?? Let me know!
