{ Jillian & I }

I guess I'm having a creative block today on cards. I've been stamping for six hours and pretty much everything I've done ended up in the trash. So I decided to try something other than cards.

I bought this frame from Michael's a few weeks ago. I took it completely apart by unscrewing all the hardware attaching the chains to the frames. I took some beautiful Basic Gray paper I've been hoarding and traced the flowers onto it. After I cut them out I adhered them to the frames then used a sanding block to sand all the edges.

After I put the frames back together I put rhinestones around the edges of the top and bottom frames and attached a bow to the middle, all using Crystal Effects so I don't have to worry about them falling off.

While a bit time consuming this project was extremely easy! The hardest part picking out the pictures to put inside it! I ended up deciding on using pictures of a friend and I that I have known for around 16 years. We were best friends as we grew up together and have remained very close, even though we have lived 3000 miles apart for the past six or so years. The first picture was taken when we were roommates. The second one was at her wedding and the third was in Vegas.

Frame: Provocraft
Paper: Basic Gray
Embellishments: SU Ribbon; Rhinestones
Other: Crystal Effects
