Framed Fun

This post should have been published earlier this week, but I'm a bit behind.

I love photos, so we have framed photos all over our house. There is a wall devoted to photos. Eventually the entire wall will be covered with photos. So making some frames as Valentine's just seemed like the right thing for me to do.

Using a Sizzix Scoreboard Frame, Easel, die by Eileen Hull and a variety of materials I created three small gifts.  This one used a white chipboard that is slightly thinner then matboard.  A piece of pink velvet paper was adhered and then the entire piece was cut using the die and Big Shot.  For embellishments, a patterned paper was used along with  Sizzilit strip die, "flower & stems, finishing the frame with tiny buttons, a bow and some iridescent trim.
This frame was made with two coordinating fabrics, adhered to an iron-on batting. It was then die-cut.  Tiny white rick-rack trims the frame, along with red heart buttons and a red cord.
The third frame is made from quilting vinyl that was inked with Ranger's Adirondack Alcohol Inks. For added support, another frame was cut from a white board. It was finished by edging the frame with a Krylon Gold Metallic pen, gold metal tape, charms and adding a gold wired ribbon and  bow.

*****Just adding two other projects here *****
Again these are made with other Scoreboard dies and various materials other then matboard.  It's meant to show you that it's always fun to experiment with what you have in the way of tools and materials.
