Now for my project.  I went shopping the other day and found these little wood frames with easel backs for a whopping price of 69 cents.

I love bargains like this and of course had to pick up 4 of them in case I needed any in the future.  When I put them in the cart, I was thinking of the new Graphic 45 papers and what I could do with them.  It didn’t take long to get the first idea.


The entire frame was covered with some papers from Graphic 45 On the Boardwalk.  I die cut/embossed two different pieces of coordinating paper with Spellbinders™ S4-191 Dahlia to make the flower on the bottom left corner.


The leaves were die cut/embossed with Spellbinders™ S4-058 Daisy Heads and the flourishes were die cut/embossed with Spellbinders™ S4-198 Flourish Accents.


To balance the frame a heart was used in the upper right corner.  I didn’t have any thin ribbon that matched what was going on here, so I dyed the 1/4” White Silk May Arts Ribbon with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  To age the ribbon even more, I burnt the edges with my lighter and kept pulling to fray it even more.

For the inside of the frame, I embossed one of my favorite sentiments on vanilla.  The mat, die cut and embossed with Spellbinders™ S4-110 Classic Ovals – Large, was placed over the sentiment in the frame.
