Life’s Little Blessings

I had this picture that I absolutely loved and wanted a way to show case it. So I made a frame for my mantel.

I used Recollections for the grey polka dot, My Minds Eye Stella and Rose collection for the floral paper. The rest of the paper was plain cardstock.

I love this layout and titled it Life’s Little Blessings. The colors when fabulous in our  living room.

I used the Flower Shoppe Cartridge to create the flowers. I also used CCR make the grey flowers to mimic the flowers in the paper. I also inked the larger cream rose with black ink. I used brads in the middle of the grey flowers.

I love how it turned out and how I was able to showcase a family photo in a creative way. Also to make the lettering stand out i used a grey pen to go around the letters.

TIP: If you want to do a 3-D page but it doesn’t need to be as deep as shadow box, try using a t-shirt frame. It is about 1/2 the depth of a shadow box and it this idea perfectly. The frame says 13×13 but 12×12 fits fine with out showing any gaps.
