A Frame Full of Fun




Wow- how much fun did I have!?! I was so nervous about making these wonderful frames. Michelle, Phylis and Christie all made such awesome frames, that made me want to try one. So I bought 4 of them (one for each of us) and they have been sitting proped up against the wall for about 3 months or more. I just had no clue where to begin or how I wanted them to look. My scrapbook room/office is in primary colors with a mustard color wall so I knew that it would be a little hard to match the colors in my room with the photographs. When making these frames you have to think dimensional so use items such as cardboard boxes stacked to give it a 3D appearance. Of course I forgot to write down the papers I used but there is plenty in the baby boy section @ Treasured Memories. I also you glimmer mist, the sticker chipboards to match the paper line and I used lots of fun ribbon to match. And of course I had to throw in a little bling! Yes- you can do bling on boy l/o's but in small proportions. Hope you like...and please leave me some comments, I always enjoy hearing your thoughts.

This is really cute!!! I might need to try a couple of these for the girls' rooms. Where are you getting the frames?

Heather, the frames are from IKEA in Houston. I tried looking for them online couldn't find them. So Ms. Phylis got me four of them and brought them to me. Dax's came out really cute. Can't wait to do the others.
