Hello and happy Saturday! I was so happy to sleep in today! I wanted to share with you these cute little framed gifts that were so simple to make. The frames are from the 99 cents store, and look exactly like first picture (meaning they are allredy whitewashed distressed) They had chickens & roosters in the frames when I bought them (that I thought were hideously ugly) I took them out & used designer paper, the Holly punch, and buttons on the first one. The "Noel" is from a bag of buttons & little plastic things that I found at Hobby Lobby. This only took me like 10 minuets to make. On the frame below I used distress inks and a sponge (antitue linen & tea dye) to change the white to more of an ivory with brownish tones. I found the little sleeping angel by googling "images" and typed in "vintage cherub"
I am getting together a Blog candy prize to photograph & announce next week, so be sure to check back soon!
My passion for crafting goes back more than 20 yrs. I love it all..embroidery, watercolors, stamping, making mini books, and making paper flowers. I also love all things vintage, and love to use them in my crafting. I used to scrapbook when my children were small... but now my son is almost 14, and my daughter is almost 24. I currently teach classes at the Scrapbook N More in New Braunfels, and Stamp Antonio in San Antonio, TX.
