This is a photo frame I decorated for one of the girl's who works in our salon, she said she didn't want any present's, but you cant go to a wedding and not take a present can you and it gave me an excuse to buy the simply scrapin kit, which I think is amazing, I just have to take a great picture at her wedding tommorow print it and stick it on the white matt then give it to her at the evening do.
Sorry the photo isn't very clear I couldn't stop the light making reflections on the glass.
I cut some certainly celery card to 12" x 10" to fit the frame, cut a 3" strip of the close to cocoa dsp from the scrap kit, drew around a plate on pretty in pink dsp from kitthen cut it out, used my corner rounder with the guard of to make the scallop egde around the dsp circle in whisper white paper, used one of the self adhesive edge strips from the kit, cut a matt from textured white card, made a knot in Whisper white Taffeta ribbon and 5/8" certainly celery grosgrain ribbon using Abi's tutorial, I also used the self adhesive sentiment "Happieness is made from moments like these" from the kit, finally I used Stazon Opaque white to stamp the large rose and leaf from A rose is a rose stamp set onto the inside of the glass so it won't come of even when she cleans the glass.
I really like the way this turned out and wish I'd had time to make one when my sister got married last Summer although I don't think I had been introduced to Stampin' Up! products then.
Hopefully I'll get time tonight to make matching candle's and a box for them, if I do I'll put them on here.
This also sorts out her christmas present as I'll use the same kit and photo's taken at the wedding to make her a mini album.
Still alive!! Finally got in the craft room!
