There`s no place like home.

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and keeping warm and safe from all this wind we are having lately.

First of all I must say Thank you for some great shows on Create and Craft we have 4 already in January and they have all been amazing, and we thank each and every one of you for making this happen.

Today I am sharing a frame I have made and I did demo this on Create and Craft last Friday, the product sold out so Im afraid you will have to wait until it is back in stock if you missed it this time.

The products I have used is :
Decorative Plaques Mdf set including Dotty Alphabet Stamp Set.
Pretty Papers Shabby Chic and Rustic
Ditsy Stitches Stamp set.
Rustic Ribbon collection
Distress ink pad Gathered Twigs
Cuttables cd rom

First of all I covered all the bars (slats) of mdf in the paper from the cd, I used collall glue and spread it to the end of the wood to make sure it stuck right to the ends. I then crossed the bars over I did glue these in place then used the twine from the rustic ribbon collection to add a bit of criss cross detail to the corners.
I then stamped the sentiment onto  a square of paper again from the cd  using gathered twigs distress ink pad just distressed around the edge of the paper, matt and layered this onto kraft card, using the crop o dile I punched in each corner then added the twine to each hole leaving the knot on the outside, then attaching these to each corner of the frame to hold in place.
I then used the ditsy stamp set and stamped these onto yellow and the blue paper different sizes of the flowers in the gathered twigs ink pad, cut them out leaving a little border, added a little pearl to the centre of each flower, arranging these in the left hand corner of the frame. I then cut the swirl from the cuttables cd using the brother scan and cut machine.
Finally adding pearl to the overlapping bits of the frame in the corners for added detail.

I hope you enjoy this post and return soon.

Thanks for looking
Carol xx
