Mix 'n Mingle = Magnets

I was inspired, by Debi Barber, to make magnets from our Mix 'n Mingle Album and did so for my group this month.  They were a big hit and I will be purchasing and decorating more!

The Mix 'n Mingle album has both cardboard and acrylix "pages" in it. The top 3 magnets have both layers on them - acrylix overlay on the cardboard. The bottom two have no acrylix overlay. We embellished them with the Mayberry paper packet and coordinating embellishments.

Notice the frame in the bottom right-hand corner.  Do you notice the Sky stripes that normally don't exist in this striped B&T?  I simply cut strips of Sky cardstock to cover the Olive stripes, allowing for a variation on the colors.  Isn't that cool?!  (You can even do this in Studio J, our online scrapbooking program.)  It offers more versatility to our already fabulous B&T.

My club member, Terri K., made this hanging frame - switching up the color combo by using the back of the "quilted" B&T pattern, incorporating Honey.  She made her paper flower look like a sunflower by using a Sponge Dauber, inked in Cocoa, and stamping it in the middle.  The "hanger" for the frame was made by sticking a magnet on the back of a button.  How CUTE!
