I created 2 different dry erase boards using Photoshop Elements 10 with our Typography CD 3 and did a step by step tutorial on one that I printed and framed in a white frame I got at the dollar store. After I realized I probably should have looked for a different frame as the white frame directed the style of my project and I wanted a romantic style so I made this second layout below. After I printed it I just added a piece of plastic from a sheet protector so I could add it to my fridge with magnets and use a dry erase marker to leave love notes for my honey.
Here it is finished on my fridge with family photos and on the right side is a photo of my husband Scott about 32 years ago with our oldest daughter Katie. Wow, the time has gone by so fast!
Here's a close up. Gee - I wish I had cooler printing like the font. It's Persimmon.
Okay, here is my digital tutorial on my Dry Erase Board which I printed and added to a photo frame with glass to write on. All of the images and the paper are from our CD # 3
I was first inspired by this idea after seeing a dry erase frame by Lianne on her Lulabelle blog.
If I had the right size vintage frame I was going to design one with shabby roses (like above) and make a little fabric cabbage rose from an old t-shirt to velcro on the corner and use as an eraser.
Adding the text
Adding the flowers
Duplicating a file, like to flowers to add again.
Sizing your page to fit your frame. If you can choose a print setting try high quality. I printed on 'Best Quality' and used regular white office card stock.
I like the Dry Erase or Wet Erase Markers by Expo and they are inexpensive and come in a wide range of colors you can see Expo Markers on Amazon but many stores stock them.
I also used this same paper from CD 3 to print a year at a glance calender before. You can get our Free Printable 2015 Calendar here if you missed them, available in 2 styles.

I also want to tell you about our NEW LOWER PRICES in our www.craftyvintagegirl.com online store as almost every printed item and all the remaining Clear Stamp Sets have been marked down even more as you can see by the price chart below. I've also added more samples to the store and did a big clean up here and down at our warehouse and found some extra clear stamp sets. Plus - there are even extra deals on several items- like Party Queen now just $2.50, and Wonderful Pig now $1.75 and many others. Some are limited quantities and others may have been re-printed before put everything on sale and I use to have 3500 to 5000 of any item printed at a time - so I have huge discount pricing if you wish to purchase printed items in bulk.
We still have some of the jumbo Tattered Angels Timeless Romance Clear Stamp Sets left (I bought a giant skid of them when they discontinued them) and now marked them down to $6.95, plus my shipper is adding 2 large white paper lace square doilies to each set!
Our Little Boy Outfit and Little Girl Outfit are now $1.75 and are die cut from chipboard and fold.
Our Best Buds 54 Image Packs (mini stamp set is sold out) are now just $1.95 and available in Christmas 54 Image pack as well.
Don't forget to check out our DT February Challenge and I hope you will join in our Linky Party which started today and runs for 2 weeks. Vicki Chrisman is our Guest DT this month and we have a New Member Gini Nemchek!
Wishing you joy and creativity
