Inspired Stamps- DT Thursday

Hello, hello this Thursday.  Inspired Stamps has some incredible new alphabet stamps and the DT will be showcasing different ways to use the alphabets in their projects today.  I had seen a magnet board recently that caught my eye.  I went to the Dollar Tree and found these baking pans.  I bought a few, I even checked that magnets would stick to them before I bought them.  When I got home I made a plan.  I already had the clear, flat gems and sticky pads (both purchased at Dollar Tree and now just in my supplies waiting for the right project).  I covered the baking pan with dp containing scripture from Hobby Lobby.  I stamped the first letter of each day of the week, but used th for Thursday on a 1 1/4 inch circle punched out of white cardstock. I glued on gem with clear adhesive and then added strong magnet to the back.    I only had the lowercase alphabet, but I like the look.  I made a library pocket with template out of coordinated paper and used a Spellbinder die for banners.  You could add words for things you or your family do most often, like Bible study, AWANA, meetings, orthodontist, doctor, etc... but then have a few blanks in the pocket to add new items.  The sticky pad and library pocket were attached with magnets, so they can be moved around or taken down to better write a note and placed back on baking sheet.  This same concept could be made into a menu board, if you are good about planning out the week's menu.  I know that is the first thing my kids every afternoon when they come in from school, "what's for dinner?" The answer could be on the menu board.
I hope you like my project, it was very inexpensive and easy to do and I love the results.
Please let me know if you have any other ideas you could use a magnet board like mine and leave the suggestions in my comments area for others to be inspired.  Check out the Inspired Stamps blog for more great ideas by the DT and check out typewriter text lowercase and all the others available at the Inspired Stamps store.
