Hello Crafty Friends!
Look! Up on the mantle piece!
Is it a card? Is it a frame? Is it a peg board?
Check out Amira's celebration of family project and let us know what you think.....
Hi Crafty friends,
My most favourite item in the Aunty Vera Scrap and Craft February kit has got to be the papers by Carta Bella!!
I wanted to make an 'off the page' project so I could showcase these papers year round.
And since it was Valentine's Day, I also wanted to incorporate pictures of the people I love the most.
So 2 birds, 1 stone- I came up with this photo frame design which I modelled off a Vellum Luminary Card I saw on Pinterest.
I'm calling it the Valentine DeskTop Photo Frame / Mini Craft Peg Board / Display Card... or whatever you would like to call it HAHA!!
All you need to construct the base is 1 sheet of 12" x 12" card stock.
Cut this to 10" x 12".
Along the 12" edge, score @:
Along the 10" edge, cut in half @ 5".
Fold in valleys and mountains to both to get something that looks like this.
To the front frame, attach paper of your choice to either panels.
Next, I used my Tim Holtz Mixed Media hexagon thinlet to create a "see-through" pattern in the front panel.
To the back frame, I cut a 6" x 5" piece of patterned paper and attached it to the centre.
I then attached the front frame to the back frame by applying double sided sticky tape to the right and left panels only.
To the back of the back frame, I chose to display the beautiful collection by attaching 3" x 5"panels.
My downright FAVOURITE piece of paper is this ONE
I fussy cut a whole bunch of the flowers and attached them to the hexagon frame using PVA glue.
This formed an area where I could attach pictures of my choice which I attached with mini craft pegs from my stash.
Next, I customised the journaling cards by adding sentiments from the Tim Holtz sticker book to make them more relevant to the subject matter - my love for my family.
I loved this so much I decided to keep going and added sentiments to my pictures.
Time for the pics to go onto my "peg board".
To the left and right front panels, I added the cut apart journaling cards to further decorate the frame.
Through the unattached middle of the frame and the die-cut hexagon pattern, I attached more family pictures which I held in place with paper clips.
These can be swapped out to the front as needed for a change.
This frame is such a wonderful celebration of love - it can sit on a bed
side table, be displayed on a mantle or even placed on a coffee table.

Thank you for stopping by.
I hope you are inspired to make one of these.
By the way, what would YOU call it??
