Altered Chalkboard

Today I'm sharing my November iamroses design team project with you. If you keep up on whats trending lately you already know that chalkboard is hugely in right now. You can see chalkboard in home decor, accessories for the home especially in the kitchen and scrapbooking.

I found this cute $1 chalkboard hanging at my local target and knew I had to alter it!

Here's a look at the before.

I knew I wanted to change up this chalkboard Christmas countdown for my home. I wanted to add a bit of sparkle and holiday flare to it. I added a pleated trim all the way around the chalkboard along with some mesh bling to give it that holiday sparkle. I replaced the burlap string for the hanger with lace and added a lace bow to the center to make it more of a focal point.
I finished off embellishing by adding some beautiful iamroses flowers
I added the following flowers:

Here's a look at my altered chalkboard Christmas Countdown. I just love the way it turned out!

IAR November Challenge

Thanks for joining me today! It's that time again! Are you ready for another IAR challenge? I had so much fun creating this months inspiration project for this Challenge. Don't forget to stop by the IAR blog for all the details on how you can enter this months challenge.

For this challenge I had the pleasure of working with the I Am Roses flowers GB4's. I altered a tin which actually has a mini album inside it. I wanted to showcase my daughter when she was a baby and the GB4's were a perfect embellishment. I used several of these flowers to add that bit of softness and draw out the baby pink color. To add just another touch of color but not to take away from the GB4's I added in a few white cherry blossoms. I love that you don't always have to add a ton of flowers to your projects or even add a wide variety of iamroses that just a few can really make a statement.

Be sure to stop by the IAR blog for all the details on how you can enter this months challenge and don't forget to check out all the beautiful flowers IAR has to offer.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrapping!
