The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~75~

Happy Friday everyone. I hope you had a fantastic week filled with fun and creativity. Thank you to everyone who linked up a project on the Inspiration Board this week. There were so many beautiful projects and I loved relaxing with my coffee and checking them all out.

For those of us in the United States, we’re on the homestretch toward Thanksgiving. I can hardly wait for turkey, gravy, stuffing and best of all - pie!  Wishing you all a fantastic weekend and I hope to see you back here next week. Until then, enjoy these projects in the spotlight.

Inkling: astrobrights paper

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Astrobrights Papers by Neenah Paper for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


Chances are you’re familiar with AstroBrights papers. From crafts, school projects, flyers, booklet covers and more, Astrobrights have added a burst of color to many, many projects throughout my life.


AstroBrights papers come in 23 bright colors, so your ideas are extra bright!. Even a touch of the vibrant paper can add pizzazz to a simple project.


Since it’s almost back-to-school time, I wanted to use Astrobrights to liven up a plain composition book. I started by covering the book in white cardstock. Simply glue a piece of cardstock to your book cover and trim.


Next is the fun part. Use a large circle punch to punch out several Astrobright circles. I used a 1 inch circle punch.



I love the colors! Even these little circles are bursting with color!

Glue your circles onto your book cover. I used a regular glue stick for the circles.

 

This composition book is ready to go back-to-school and to be filled with creative, bright thoughts! 


And speaking of back-to-school, AstroBrights papers is currently running a  Back-To-School campaign called "Give a Brighter Year". The campaign launched on July 16, 2012 and will run through September 10, 2012. Visitors who “Like” the campaign page and submit a short online form will be entered into a sweepstakes to win school supplies worth $30,000 for the elementary school of their choice. Wow!! What school couldn’t use some school supplies.

In addition to the sweepstakes, Astrobrights is running a bi-weekly design challenge for all skill levels for a chance to win Astrobrights Paper and other great prizes. Check it out here on AstroBrights papers.

I hope your day is bright and happy!
Thanks for visiting.
