Family frame

I have been busy the past few days and I LOVE it! not so much today... lol.

I created this frame yesterday... I  had it lying around as extra from decorating my walls, so I thought this would be a nice "new" (sort of) project to work on. I know I have done some altered frames in the past before, but this one is different. The ones I am used to are the wooden frames, these are the regular type frames you get at Kohls or Michales.

Hope you like my new take on Altered frame.... Possibilities are endless!


 I figured instead of making it a regular frame that fits (3) 5x7 photos, why not "Scrapbook" The middle slot?
What do you think?

I used the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut the banner, and letters. Cute huh?

This is the caption I put in the "Medallion" portion on the bottom right corner, from the Family love stamp 

If you are interested in purchasing this frame it is available in my Etsy shop.

Hope you enjoyed this post,  would love to hear from you all!

Dont forget you can purchase all the materials used here and so much more on my website Click HERE

Mini Scrapbook Album

TADA! here is the latest Item I created....

I put this together in just one day... took me longer to get the photos done for this blog post ;)

The pages are 5x7 and fit up to 4x6, Sure you can fit a 5x7 but then you wouldn't  see the nice paper.

Here is the Cover you can insert a picture into it, and it has a 2x2 opening.

This is the first page on the inside. The picture will slide right in, the "title" is not stuck on the page all the way so the picture will sit right behind it on the yellow "mat"


 This is pg 2-3

Here is pg 4-5

 Close up of pg 5

pages 6-7 with tag closed

Close up of pg7 TAG
 Pgs 8-9

pgs 12-13

 Pg 14 and end cover
