Memories Frame

Memories Frame
Created for Made with Memories

Products used
Prima Engraver Collection papers and flowers.
Dusty Attic Chipboard Scrolls
Glossy Accents
Distress Ink - Frayed Burlap
Smooch - Vanilla Shimmer

I love to take old wooden photo frames and upcycle them with inspirational quotes.
As this was designed for Made with Memories, I thought the quote fitted perfectly and it would be a beautiful addition to the shop wall.

As the papers where quite dark, I wanted to lighten the frame up, so I took out my trusty Tim Holtz sanding block and went to town. I love the effect.

The chipboard scroll was inked with Frayed Burlap and then covered in Glossy Accents and lightly sanded.
Picture is a little blurry sorry.

Finally I finished off with the Prima flowers and added a little charm to the centre and then took the ribbon and stapled it to the back of the frame for hanging purposes.
Lastly I then used my glossy accents to cover the words and then spritzed it with smooch vanilla shimmer.

It's always a pleasure to share someone's memories

Happy crafting


We Got It Going On

This layout is titled ...We Got It Going On
As some of you maybe aware, I am in the process of completing my wedding album and if you haven't already guessed I am a huge Bon Jovi fan, so therefore all my layouts have Bon Jovi song titles.

 My colour theme is red, white and black so when I had these beautiful papers from the Prima engravers collection to work with, I knew they would fit with my album theme perfectly.

This is the first page.

My apologies for the photo's being sideways, not sure why I can't rotate them.

I am very happy with the end result.

Tattered Floral Birdcage

It's that time again where another month is nearing it's end and I have been madly designing.
My inspiration this month was from the Prima Engravers Collection of papers, flowers and brads.
This little birdcage got a make over. Too cute.
After seeing a post from Tim Holtz using his Tattered floral die and some distress paints, I was inspired to break out my die and see what I could with it.

This is the finished flower using Prima Engraver Collection Papers & Brads.

These ticket tags are inked with Versa Pinecone.

I love the end result.
