Stampin' Up! has been framed!!



LOL Got your attention, didn't I? At leadership last week we had the opportunity to purchase lots of fun logo items. I picked up several of these vinyl Stampin' Up! logos with the idea of using them for downline gifts or crafts. That very day, we came back to my house and I made up this adorable frame. I just 'happened' to have a 12 x 12 frame in my craft closet....okay, I admit it! I am a total frame junkie! I have loads of them in all different sizes and colors! You just never know when you will need to frame something.....
Anyway! I love how this turned out! Let me tell you how I did it. First, I took the back off the frame and put in a piece of the Flower Fantast Printed Window sheets (#115705) which I trimmed down to 11 x 11 to fit, into the frame. Then I put a piece of gable green 11 x 11 cardstock on top of that. Replace the frame back and done! Next I put the vinyl sticker on the outside of the glass and then embellished the edges. The ribbon it just wrapped around the back and adhered with glue dots. I put a small piece of chipboard in the bottom corner to hold the flowers to so they wouldn't sink to the glass. Here is a list of all the embellishments I used for the flowers:
#115613 Razzleberry polka dot ribbon
#116312 Sherbet designer buttons (small green button)
#117681 Corduroy buttons in pretty in pink (from the new mini catalog)
#117271 Epoxy brads in pretty in pink
#117272 Epoxy brads in chocolate chip
#117266 Sweet pea stitched felt (from the new mini.....LOVE these!!!)
#115604 Fleurettes (crocheted flowers....totally dyable!)
#112581 Circle designer brads
#109114 Rhinestone from the pretties kit

Now, I know this is a pretty long list, but seriously...you could use more of the same thing and not need so much. But I happened to have all this stuff in my accessories and just started pulling stuff out. It was quick and easy and I love it! If I decide I want different background paper, I can just pull the frame apart and change that out.
So, look at your frames and see if you have one you would like to jazz up or switch out. We have lots of vinyl options available at Stampin' Up!....make your own masterpiece!
