Joyful Stars July Blog Hop

   Thank you for stopping by for the Joyful Stars Team Blog Hop again this month.  The theme for this month is "Artist Choice".   If you are coming from Joyce Houck's blog at Joyce-joyfulcreations.blogspot.com, then you are on the right path.  
   I decided to do something a little different this month.  This is a make n take for my Open House at the end of the month.  I created a magnetic board using the For Always textiles and Base and Bling Floral Accents (a new product available 8/1). I purchased the sheet metal from Lowe's and used a glue gun to adhere the fabric to the metal.  I purchased magnets from K&J Magnetics and used liquid glass to attach them to the floral accents. I decided to use mine for showcasing bible verses.  Below is a the board without the scriptures.
Supply List: For Always Textiles (Z1820), Base & Bling Floral Accents (Z1883) Available 8/1, Liquid Glass (Z679), sheet metal, magnets. Thanks for stopping by.  Now hop over to the talented Nancy Brown at creativelyartsygallery.blogspot.com.

If you are interested in making this magnet board at my Open House, please send me an email at livescraplove@gmail.com by July 15th, so I can order the supplies.  The cost is $6!  There will be other FREE make n takes too!
