Decor Elements Picture Frame
Here's a project I am thrilled to be finished with - and so quickly - less than a year! lol Alright - admit it! I know there are others of you who are just like me - got a list of projects to do, and you keep hoping they'll get done eventually rather than never! :)
I earned this (now retired) Stampin' Up! Decor Element as a Host Benefit last year. I chose it specifically with the inspired idea to do this picture frame. We don't have a lot of things on our walls - I guess when it comes to decor, my husband and I would be called 'minimalists'. But I LOVE displaying pictures of family and dear friends. It will hang in our kitchen table/family room/ homeschool room (hopefully before another year goes by!) This is a BIG frame - as the Decor Element was 12" x 24".
I used Designer Series Paper from the SU! Bella Bleu collection, plus some strips of Very Vanilla. It all came together prety easily, once I spent the time looking through my mounds of photos and pulling out some of my favorite doubles.
Stampin' Up! has many beautiful Decor Elements shown in the current Definitely Decorative catalog - which you may view through my website by clicking on the "Shop Now" button. Picture frames like this would make AWESOME birthday, anniversary and Christmas gifts - so go take a look and see what inspires you. If you need help - just let me know! ENJOY!
