Petals & Paisleys Photo Phrame (er, Frame) - Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Hello friends!  Thanks for stopping by for another Artisan Design Team Blog Hop - if you're not starting with me, welcome to Calgary, Canada - sit back and enjoy the rest of the hop around the world!  

Today's project comes to you from a few weeks back - I mentioned a while ago that I started on a piece of home decor and then set it aside and changed directions completely.  Sometimes I just need a little extra time to figure something out, and this was one of those projects. 

My original idea with this was to make a menu board for the holidays.  So what made me change my mind?  My handwriting!  I hate my own handwriting and having it featured so prominently on a project made me not want to share it with anyone.  But how easy is it to slip a photo on this instead?!  Perfect!  Got a big holiday meal coming up this month?  Put your menu board over the photo and feature it for everyone to see.  Why not?  Multi-purpose crafts are the best!

Circles punched with the Petals & Paisleys DSP, folded in half, and adhered to a piece of cardstock make up the base of this frame, and a few easy embellishments complete it.

Pretty designs cut from the same paper, bits of ribbon, some copper foil paper, and a simple sentiment stamp.  How easy is that?

A big burlap bow adds a nice rustic touch - perfect for fall.

Thanks for stopping in today - please continue with the blog hop and see what Steffi has for us today!

I hope you enjoy our projects - happy crafting!
