Here's my first try at mixed media.  I had a lot of fun making this and have already started on my second one!

This is the dry erase board I made using a wide picture frame I got for a bargain when my AC Moore store closed.  I painted the edges black and covered the front with kraft paper using Mod Podge to glue it down ONLY...never put Mod Podge over kraft paper, I did and that is why this is the second one of these I've made.  It caused the paper to bubble like crazy!  I used four sets of stamps from The Stamps of Life.  I'm a club member and just love Stephanie Bernard's stamps.  The sets I used are, banners4all, list2write, mums2stamp and butterfly2build.  I covered a small piece of kraft paper with contact paper and made a loop that I thumb tacked to the back so that it hung over the bottom edge and made a place for the dry erase marker.

 So here's today's far.  I used my new doodle2stamp set from The Stamps of Life.  I think this is my new "favorite" at the moment.

 Here's a cute card I recently sent to my mother, just to say hello.  I used my Watercan Marci stamp from La-La Land Crafts (one of my new favorite stamp companies).  I paper pieced her dress and visor and colored the rest of her with my copic markers.  I used my Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Nine dies to cut the window. 
The happy summer, ants and watermelon stamps used on the inside are from lawn fawn and I purchased them from Ginger Snap Scraps, she has a lot of great sales, usually with 30% off.
Another card I almost forgot about!  I made this as a Father's Day card for my husband who LOVES pretzels.  I used my Cricut Decals cart that comes on the E2 so this card came together pretty quickly.  The #1 was stamped on a blank wood domino (for lack of a better word for it) that I got from Michaels.  It has two holes going through it so I was able to thread it on some baker's twine.  The banner on the bottom is from paper tape.
Wow, here's a card I made for my father for Father's Day and almost forgot to post!  I used the pops2eat and patterns4pops stamp sets from The Stamps of Life, I just love their stamps!  The sentiment came with the stamp set not including the POP! (what my kids call my father) so I added them with some random alpha stamps I have.  The words were all stamped on a thin piece of balsa wood and I also added some paper tape you can get at Target.  The wood gave the card a cool, different look and was easy to cut with scissors.

This is a dry erase frame I made today.  Project number 2, I think I'm on a roll!  I used a frame (one of 4) that I picked up at my local AC Moore when they were closing : (  I only paid $1.25 for it!  It has glass in the middle and the wide front of the frame had been painted with chalkboard paint.  The paper is from Heidi Grace's Tweet Dreams and the flower is from her matching paper pad called Tweet Memories and all you have to do is punch each flower out and layer them.  I added a little ink to the edges of mine and then layered two buttons in the middle.  The flower stamp in the middle is from one of my FIVE new sets I got from The Stamps of Life when I went to my first scrapbook expo yesterday, it's called flower2doodle.  I'm a club member and if you haven't checked out their stamps yet...what are you waiting for?!?!?  They are really nice and if you join the club you save $$$ on all their stamps and believe me, you're going to want them all! : )  I took a small piece of matching paper, covered it in contact paper and then attached it on the back with two thumb tacks so that it hung down from the bottom for a place to keep a dry erase marker handy.
