Hi everyone and I hope you all had a wonderful end to the week. Today I have something very special to share with you. I had a box of picture frames I picked up at Kmart last year on Black Friday and last week I decided to open it. I looked at the frames and try to make a piece of framed art and so this is what I came up with.

I knew I wanted to use the word 'family' and so that was the beginning for my project. From there I picked out my Stampin' Up! designer series paper, and that lead me to using my Heartfelt Thanks stamp set.

I began by creating my background layout and then I worked on stamping the letters and I layered them onto my SU designer series paper. There is a burgundy layer along the bottom that I punched using my eyelet border punch.

Next, I stamped the word happy from my Define Your Life stamp set and placed that in the middle along the bottom and then I stamped and cut out the flower images. Then I added my embellishments and here I decided to go with two pieces from my hodge podge hardware set and I added a small piece of ribbon through the square clip hardware.

The last thing I needed to do was to frame my page.  This was a really easy project and I had fun making it.  I ended up making two more framed are projects and I'll be sharing those projects with you within the next week or so. 

I've posted a few pictures below and the last picture I was trying to get a close up for you.  If you click on the photos a new window will open with a larger image so that you can see it better.


I originally made this to sell at an upcoming craft show that i will be attending, but I really like the way this turned out so I might keep it for myself instead. I hope you liked it! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend and I'll see you on Monday!
