Good afternoon everyone,

Just a quick post to show you the other box frame I have made. The class for this will be in April Saturday and Sunday the weekend of the 27th & 28th, so if you would like to come along, please give me a call and I can book you in.

This is an 8"x8" frame, using the heart punch and the More Amore Speciality DSP from the Summer Catalogue.
I used bask Grey ink for the edges.
 Check out the details above for classes in April, May and June.

Thanks for stopping By

Word Vintage Box Frame

I have been very busy making things for a local craft fair, my first trip outside to the local library this morning, had a great morning thanks to my friend Sue, carer Laura who got me up early and to support worker Karen who has helped me craft everyday and got me going! I have now been invited to another event in the next village :)

Anyway this is a box frame using the word LOVE but you could do this with any word you like in any colours to decorate your home.



My camera gives it a vintage feel!!! But I have used the neutral colour family, added lots of extras some are retired, but you can make it your own using different embelishments.



Lighter picture, using the DSP first edition and speciality paper as a background.


Some of the detail, using the buttons, twine, bird punch leaves, glitter brads and butterfly emboslets, vintage brads,



Ageing some detail with the stitching edges, inked in crumb cake. A small heart punch with pearls, the Aviary suite stamped bird cage. New butterfly punch and stamp. New Embossing folder and large brads from the new summer catalogue. The letters were stamped using Early Expresso with the broadsheet alphabet.

Will up date with other things made tomorrow. If you would like to make one join me .....check out the classes for the next few months.

Thanks for stopping by
