Today at the JustRite Blog we are introducing a new 2" Square JustRite Original set called "Dare to Dream". Last week I found a great 11 1/8" x 9 5/8" Frame (which is designed to hold a 4" x 6" photo) at the Christmas Tree Shop for $4.99. I didn't like the print on the frame but I loved all the flat alterable space!! I am in the process of decorating my new office with a Butterfly Theme and if you have been reading my blog lately you know that I am in love with DCWV The Mariposa 12x12 Stack - (chocked full of Butterfly Papers). I have had this particualr piece of paper sitting on my work station for a couple of weeks - and I just couldn't bear to cut it up for a card becuase the paper is gorgeous as a full sheet. So this frame was perfect for showing off this beautiful piece of paper!! Plus this week I got a nice stash of new embellishments and paper from Stamper's Dream which I couldn't wait to play with (Can you see the light bulbs going off!!). Here is my altered very "Girly" frame!!
I think I will need to make another trip to the Christmas Tree Shop for a few more frames to create altered frames with the rest of the Dare to Dream stamps!!
Here is a close up of all the bling on my frame.
The frame is designed for a 4 x 6 Photo. For my piece I decided to place a 4 x 6 piece of paper from the Mariposa Stack under the glass and added the rest of my design on top of the glass using the photo space as a shallow shadow box. I stamped the Dare to Dream image of a small scrap of paper that was left over from the piece of paper I applied to the frame. My Dare to Dream Embellishment was die cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities Squares and Fleur de Lis Squares. Next I added a bling square and then on each side of the Dare to Dream element bling swirls with hearts.
To frame out the photo area I cut a green paper frame. Next a little more bling to the top corners and 2 Webster's Page Vintage Inspired Sparklers with pearls to accent the corners.
When I opened my stash of embellishments from Stamper's Dream this week, I was immediately drawn to this Sweet Cameo Girl with a small bird in her hand and I was absolutely delighted when my butterfly paper has the same tones of turquoise in it. To frame out the cameo I die cut a Fancy Tags Three turquoise mat and added a butterfly and dragon fly bauble (from Pink Paislee) on each side of the cameo. To finish the frame I cut one bling corner in half and used one on each side of the fancy tag finishing off the bling swirl with Vintage Rose Sparklers from the same package of Webster Page's sparklers. It may not be Spring in Maine yet...but it is Spring in my office!!
