Rooted in Nature Faux Silk Tutorial

I started this project a while back and got side tracked. Does that ever happen to you? That being said, I’m not admitting to my stack of half finished projects  anything. LOL!

Well the good news is I finally finished it and love the way it turned out so I wanted to share it with you today.

What do you think? Can you see your favorite autumn photo in it? The color is a bit late here in this neck of the state so I haven’t gotten many pictures yet, but hope too still if the rain doesn’t wash things out.

This frame looks like it took along time and is complicated, but really isn’t difficult to do with a few basic supplies. The frame itself is one of those inexpensive $1 frames you can find at your local Walmart or craft store.

Here is a video tutorial for you showing you how I made it. This video is a bit longer than I normally do so I hope you enjoy it.

Succulent Garden Team Gifts

I love to make special little gifts for my team and I thought I’d share the Succulent Garden frame with you today along with a quick video showing you how I made it.

I’ve love the soft colors in the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper so that is where I started with my project since they seemed to coordinate well with our On Stage logo for this spring. I even personalized the logo with Savannah and the year so that when they take the cardboard piece out to put the photo in they can turn it around and always have the information right there on the back! (After all I have a hard time remember where and when photos were taken after a few years. How about you?)

I also made name tags for our bags.

After all with hundreds of the same bag running around, you want to identify yours quickly right? Especially since it is packed with lots of goodies!!!

Yep, I had all this in my bag to bring home! I love being a demonstrator and attending Stampin’ Up! events!!!

And did you notice? I had a bit of beading fun too! I used blue beads since we are the Blue Mountain Stampers (makes sense, right?) and

I found some special charms to go along with our choice of On Stage location. And check out these cute little On Stage logos using Shrinky Dinks of all things! What fun it was watching them shrink from their original 2″ size down to these tiny charms – brings out the kid in me. LOL! I love spoiling my team and Deborah was pleasantly surprised to find this little Team Gift on her bed in the hotel the first evening.

Okay, you ready to learn how I made the frame? I’ve got two video tutorials for you and a complete supply list if you scroll down to the end.

Watercolor Wings Spring Frame & New Weekly Deals

I love using my stamping products for home decor and gift items since it gives me a chance to create something extra special. So I wanted to share this fun frame that I made to hold that special photo from Easter this month.

Watercolor Wings Butterfly frame

The base is just one of those inexpensive wooden frames that you can find for a dollar. How did I make it? Well first I used our Stampin’ Glue Sticks to adhere a layer of our Cucumber Crush paper from the 2015-2017 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack to the wooden frame. The Stampin’ Glue Sticks are perfect for this type of project since it has square edges that will fit into corners easily.

Next I made some flowers using our Spiral Flower Die. Sooo quick and easy. Run your Bone Folder down the card stock after cutting it out, roll and adhere. Yep that is it! I did sponge the edges a bit to give it a bit more depth and added a touch or two of the Dazzling Details on the edges to make them look dew kissed.

I made two butterflies and adhered them only in the center so I could bend the wings and give the butterfly a 3d look. And I added a bit more of the Dazzling Details on both pieces to add a bit of shimmer.

I think my daughter will enjoy this little item for her Easter basket. How about you? What do you think of this little frame I made?
