What you can do with a dollar frame.........

I found this picture Frame at my local craft store, for just $1. I liked the size and knew that I had the perfect picture, but what to do with the rest......hummmmm.  

I used mostly Big Shot cut outs, and added the Real Red 1 1/4 striped grosgrain ribbon, a few punches of hearts and just for my embossing friends a few embossed hearts.  For the glitter girls a few of the new glimmer brads and for me.....the purple butterflies.  I had it somewhat figured out in my head, I was attempting to explain the plan to a friend and to her it did not  sound appealing........She LOVED the end results.  Look outside the box girls!! You will have fun!!

Valentines - Sense of Time

Here I sit at my new computer, Thanks to my Hubby.  This picture was taking with my Christmas present, from my Hubby, a new camera. I am listening to the wind blow and watching the snow fall, sort of.  I am very happy for my "valentine".  I made this one with him in mind.  I love that he saves all my notes and cards that I leave (make) for him.  This one was inspired by him.  The base is Soft Suede with a Crumb Cake layer.  The clock you have seen before.....Sense of Time.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The punches I used were the small Heart, Modern Label and Word Window.  I also embossed the hearts.  There is still time to MAKE a special card for your "Valentine".
