Hello, and Happy Monday! Yesterday “crafternoon” I made this fun frame from the new Close to My Heart Designed Décor Frame Kit. My husband and I take a lot of “selfies” with our phones to help us remember the fun we were having while out and about or with friends. I turned some recent phone photos into pictures for this project by sizing them down and laying them all out on a page I printed onto photo paper. I trimmed each picture so they’d fit behind the 3″ across by 2.75″ high opening in the kraft cardstock Polaroid-style picture frames.
Before attaching the photos, I personalized each frame with words that reflected the photo to be showcased and I took this picture to help me recall which photo went with which frame before cutting out the pictures. Please excuse the desk mess – I didn’t know I’d be using this picture in the blog!
I used the exclusive stamp set that came with this kit [B1430 Happiness Lives Here] as well as a sentiment from the retired [D1548 Whooo’s Your Valentine] stamp set and stamps from these two new collections: [C1561 One-Way Borders] and [D1558 Washi Wonder, a Hostess Rewards Exclusive]. I love the retired CTMH stamp set I used for the “MR. & MRS.,” called E1013 Field Trip Alphabet. The inks I used were a smattering of Desert Sand on the edges of all the kraft cardstock, Ruby, Outdoor Denim, and White Daisy. I also added some red crystal gems from my stash of embellishments and used double-sided foam adhesive to make the “LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU” word bubble pop out.
I used the twine that came with the kit and threaded it through the banners and attached them in place with Memory Book Mini Glue Dots®. I held the twine in place with some washi tape from my collection. I still have plenty of supplies leftover from this kit, which makes me happy because they will definitely be used.Pin It
