McMahon Five Designs

Hey everyone! Thursday already! That means Friday is here tomorrow and well you know. Anyway I love Thursdays because I get to show you some amazing releases from McMahon Five Designs. This is such an uber awesome week.

This week I will be showing you...

This uber fabulous up cycled piece of cardboard that came with our recent purchase of...A printer! Yeah it was high time and now this one isn't working all that well, we may have to take it back errr. Either way isn't this uber awesome.

The digi is from McMahon Five Designs! In the middle there is chalkboard paint! I forgot how much I love this stuff. Yeah its pretty awesome. I just took a piece of cardboard. Painted it how I wanted it for the background, then used my heat gun to set the paint. Then I got some trusty painters tape out and painted all four sides the way that I wanted it and painted in the inside with chalkboard paint. I'm not going to lie (maybe I didn't mix it well enough) but I had to add 5 coats of paint. It went pretty fast though because my heat gun was never far from my side. We are great friends these days! Then I used mod podge to seal the entire outside being careful not to seal the chalkboard section. Then I took the crop a dile and punched two holes in each side randomly and thread the ribbon through. Tied those into a knot and viola! The sentiment over on the left side is from PinkByDesign just in case you were wondering! LOVES.

I wanted the project this week to be a tribute to my M5D design sisters! They are all so inspirational. So...if you get time please head on over and see what they all have created for you today. Thanks so much for stopping by.
