Can we just say fun?








I have been wanting a bind it all for like forever. I finally got one and I knew I just had to use up some of those chipboard coasters and play. I used the just retired fall designer paper from Stampin'Up!, apple cider. I haven't been to particularly keen on the wild wasabi color til now. I took these pics of my Granddaughter just before Christmas. She was wearing this cute Christmas outfit and had her hair all done up curly. I handed her the baby Jesus from her fisher-price nativity and stuck her in front of Grandma's tree. These pics I ended up with will be treasured forever! I love the way they turned out. I used a couple of medium weight chipboard coasters and adhered my designer paper, then sanded the edges. I changed my pics to black and white, because Mykl's green shirt clashed with the wasabi. The ribbon and scalloped card stock are cranberry crisp. The adorable little acrylic frame came from Papertrey Ink! Cute huh? I stamped the memories circle (from the new set Sweet Celebrations) in chocolate chip craft and heat set it. When it was dry I stamped the adorable little heart with cranberry crisp. I used my nestabilites circle and scallop circle dies to cut these out. The lace snow flake is off my tree and is hand tatted by me! I am trying to figure out how to cut it up and then adhere it to the piece. If you will notice in the pic behind her, you can see the snowflakes on the tree. I may just make part of one so I can permanently attach it to the frame. How cute is this? I think it would be a perfect gift and cheap. Oh, I used 1/4" wire to bind it, but I think I will get some bigger stuff as the chipboard kinda runs into itself. Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
