I'm to share with you guys a project for Scrapyland.com. I hope you had a chance to
check out the other fabulous ladies on the design team. I am happy to be a part
of such a creative group (awww)!
Ok, on to my project. I've been meaning to alter some photo frames and give
them as gifts to a couple friends. They sat around my room for almost a year! I
got each of these frames from Michaels for under $2 last December, with the
intention of giving them as Christmas presents. Does anyone else do that?
I used the beautiful Prima
Lyric paper pad for both of these frames. I first added gesso to my frames -
front and back. I added mod podge to the frames and laid my paper down. I sanded
the edges to get that 'clean' look. I wanted to add some interest to the inside
of the frame. I chose lace to help me out - Love it!! I die cut some flowers
using my Spellbinders
Aster Flower Topper Die with the paper collection. I topped them with some
flowers from my stash and added stickles for some sparkle. Here is a look at the
The flat back pearls and spray added some definition to the frame. The black
"wire" is from a pic I got from Michaels.
The treasure epoxy sticker is added on top of a wooden banner from Studio
Calico. Tucked under the flowers is a flower filagree, it was a great fit.
Oh my - I love how they turned out. I hope they will too!!! So I had to
create another, right? For the second one, I followed the same base procedure as
the first. As for the added decor, I opted for a more simple and elegant look.
I had a string of pearls that would be perfect for it - so I added them all
around the frame. I tried to create a look of the pearls freely dancing around
the frame. I added the smallest of the
die cut flower topper under a wooden and paper flower. I did this to add
some interest. I added a few tiny flowers to the piece as well. The lace again,
I glued to the inside of the frame. I think it turned out cute as well. Take a

We're done! This project was simple and fun to make. It will surely brighten
someone day, if it were received as a gift from a friend :) Thanks for stopping
by!! Be sure to check out Scrapyland.com for the Prima
