Pretty Picture Frame Presents

If I know you, and you have a birthday, which obviously is pretty likely, chances are pretty good that you will get a picture frame for a birthday present this year. Just keeping it real.

Here are two that I’ve made recently using the Sophia collection for two of my co-workers.

I used the wooden frames from Michaels. Painted the sides with white paint, cut the paper the same dimensions as the frame and glued it down with a thin coat of Modge Podge. Then I took my Exact-o knife and cut out the hole. I then cut a piece of cardstock to fit inside as a backing.

Here are two different gift bags I created for the frames, one in kraft and one in white paper.

And here is one of the cards. Don’t know how I forgot to take a picture of the other. Oh, wait, yes I do. Life is crazy. : p

Happy Crafting!

Enjoy Elemental Layout Video

Check out this great video showcasing the new Elemental collection, the Hooray Bouquet stamp set and the Art Philosophy cartridge. Click here.

Pretty cool, huh?

Here are a few other layouts the art department created using the Elemental collection.

I especially love this last one. The cork letters and the stamped "Live, Love, Laugh" on the great journaling spots. Aren't they rockin'?

I just placed my order for these goodies, and I can hardly wait to get my hands on them and play.

If you want some of your own to play with, just drop me a line and we can have them delivered start to your door.

Happy Crafting!!

September’s “Limited Edition”

I can see all kinds of fun ways to use this month’s stamp. Not only can you use it for cards and gifts but also in interesting ways on your pages.

Here are some examples that our corporate Art Department came up with.

As usual, there is a blog hop showcasing consultants' artwork using this stamp. You can begin the hop here.

Remember that the SOTM program has changed. You can purchase the stamp set outright for $17.95 or with any purchase of $50 or more, you can purchase the stamp set for only $5. This set is only available during September.

And also remember that in celebration of National Stamping Month during September if you place a order of $75 or more, you receive the Pair-a-Phrase stamp set for FREE.
