{Wish Altered Mini Clipboard}

I have cool on the brain (and a little Christmas spirit in my soul) so I created this little clipboard this week. The background is old hymnal music “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” and the clipboard is adorned with old vintage ornament, lace, mother of pearl buttons, snowflake charm, shabby seam binding ribbon, and my favorite the big silver snowflake with a vintage rhinestone pin in the center.

I can’t believe that August is only 2 days away! Happy Saturday everyone! :)

About Sugar Lump Studios

I am a dabbler. I love to create using all sorts of mediums...pattern papers, stamping, fabric, assemblage, collage, altered art, a never ending smattering of whatever strikes my fancy in whimsical moments. I find creating allows my soul to be fulfilled and love to spend hours in the studio.


  1. it’s fantastic Nancy!! LOVE the snowflake embellishment!!

  2. Nancy, this is really lovely! I think July is the perfect time to create for Christmas. I always wait too long and then get really busy in December and end up not creating near as much as I had hoped.
    I love that you painted the clip board. The silver snowflake with the rhinestone pin is beautiful. Did you use the original vintage postcard or a copy? I always wonder if people use the original or not : ) I am always too chicken to glue down an original.

  3. As soon as I saw this piece highlighted on my Blogger dashboard I ran right to Etsy to purchase it. I have always wanted a piece of your art but could never make a decision. This piece totally captured my heart. All of the elements on it are so beautiful Nancy…I can’t wait to see it in person. Thank you for all of the art and inspiration you share on your blog…and thanks especailly for this great sale!

  4. Beautiful,Nancy……a wonderful wintery feel……and love that snowflake.

  5. I love christmas –also in july,- and your beautiful collage totally makes me in the mood for snowflakes and glitter, and beautiful winter wonderlands…
    So lovely Nancy, I love the piece of doily behind the gorgeus snowflake-
    this is a wonderful , and so lovely clipboard .

  14. This is just lovely. I too have a clip board I have yet to play with with. Its great what can be done with such a blank “canvas”.

  15. I have been dreaming of Christmas this week, too….
    PSSST!! I’m having a Strawberry-Banana Giveaway on my blog (think Christmas gift!!)

    I just LOVE that clipboard…I think I’ll head to the sewing room now and make some gifts of my own! Thanks for the inspiration~

  16. Hi Nancy,
    I love the little altered clipboards.
    I know you’ve been busy with your classes.
    I use a wireless modem by verizon for my
    internet connection. I just got 4G speed
    last week. I can watch videos now! That’s
    exciting since they are so popular.

    I started a new blog to focus on my
    crochet and sewing. I’d love to have you
    pop in for a visit.
