Just because I [heart] E.A.D.!!!!!

I am totally hooked on E.A.D.'s vinyl rub-ons. They just keep getting more awesome each time I use them. When I first saw the super cute Retro Forest in the wall decor I fell in love. So you can only imagine how I felt when it was made into the smaller crafting kit called Just Because. I also really loved the color combination used in the visual display of the Retro Forest, so I ordered Just Because in 3 colors- mint, pink, and cream.

I have had this magnetic board for awhile now, and have been waiting for the perfect vinyl to put on it. I'm quite pleased at how it turned out :)





There are some cute little birdies that also come in this set and I wanted to incorporate them in to this project somehow. A magnetic board isn't very useful without magnets!!! I bought some flat, clear glass marbles along with some 3/4" magnets at a nearby craft store. I applied the birdies to the back of the marble, and then took a precut 1" white circle of cardstock and glued them together. When that was dry I applied them to the magnets. Here's a closer look at one of the magnets and closeup of the detail on one of the trees.



My recipe:
(3) E.A.D. Designs- Just Because vinyl rub-on sets (mint, pink, and cream)
(1) Magnetic message board
(3) Flat glass marbles
(3) 1" White cardstock circles

(3) 3/4" round magnets
clear drying glue

Thank you! I see you are from Minnesota, my sister just moved from there to San Diego after being there for 35 years! Heard you got snow on Saturday! Too Cold, what am I saying, I live in the mountains of So. California at 7,000 elevation we are expecting snow today, but it is different, not a damp cold, but Whoa! Stay warm my new friend!
