Frame Tutorial

Hello again , well as promised I'm back to share some more of my projects. I do have more cards to show you but I thought today I would share a tutorial on how I decorated a picture frame.

I took a multiple frame and used Craftwork Cards Fab Fabrics collection, below are the results.

Here is the finished frame, below I show how I made it.

First I got everything ready that I need to use, I have taken the glass out of the frame, it makes it easier to raise some of the elements.

Then I cut a piece of white card to fit the back panel of the frame.

I then positioned some of the die cuts to work out where I wanted to put them.

I then took all the die cuts out of the sheets ready to use , and also cut some backing papers to size to fit inside all the separate frames.

Once the papers were cut to size I positioned them beneath the frame, and the adhered to the white backing card.

Aren't these dogs just the cutest !!

 Then I started putting the die cuts into the frames, some flat and some raised onto foam pads for a more 3D effect.

I added glaze to the bottom of the scissors and to the centres of the flowers.

 All finished in the frames , I just added some butterflies onto the frames and also a couple of the bobbin die cuts to the center .
Here is another frame I decorated using Craftwork Cards Chalkboard Collection.

 Thank you for visiting my blog , I hope you enjoyed the tutorial , I shall be back later in the week to share some more cards and projects with you.

Happy Crafting

Handy Pads from Kanban

Hi all , so today see the launch of the One Day Wonder from Kanban Crafts over on the Create and Craft channel . The shows times for the rest of the day (two shows have already been on) are 2pm , 4pm and 7pm.

The kit features 4 pads - One for Her, One for Him , One for Them and One for the Kids, plus backing card , co-ordinating papers and foiled sheets.

The pads not only feature images , you also get the sentiments in the pad on seperate pages so that you can mix and match to suit the occasion.

Here are my samples for the show , but before you see them I also want to share another picture with you, I gave the pads to my 11 year old daughter Hannah and she made some cards as well,  we sent them in with mine , and she will be over the moon as not only did she get a mention on the 11am show , Keith also showed one of her cards.

So I hope you can watch the rest of the shows to see the fab kit and plenty of demo's from Sue.

Thanks for looking,
