Gina K. Designs Blog Hop "Preserving Memories"

Hello my friends! join us for a Preserving Memories hop! Members of Gina K.'s Design Team have come together to host a hop where we will share with you scrapbook and 3D projects - we hope this will inspire you to dust off those photographs and get scrappin' and creative!

If you came from Lee's blog you're at the right place. If not make sure to head over to StampTV  where you will find a list of all those participating in today's hop.

I decorated a picture frame. I got this frame at Craft Warehouse for $2.00! It was plain, I planned to paint it, but then I decided it would look better if I cover it with some fabric tape :) This picture is of my daughter from last Winter, she made this beautiful snowman and the image from Theresa's new set worked out perfect for this project :) Here are the details.

  • Trace your front and back of your frame on Fabric tape and Patterned Paper. Cover your front with fabric tape and the back with PP.
  • Stamp snowflakes in White Craft Ink (from Very Merry Christmas)and sentiment (from Celebrate the Season) in Black Soot Distress Ink.
  • Adhere lace around front window. Add a couple of rhinestones.
  • Mat White Cs and sticky paper, stamp snowflakes (from Blessed is the season) in Faded Jeans Distress Ink and snowman (from Celebrate the Season) in Memento Tuxedo Black. Die-cut snowflakes with Circle Nestabilities.
  • Color snowman and cut it out.
  • Adhere twine on the back of snowflakes and adhere it to frame. Add White pearls .
  • Adhere snowman to frame.
  • Add liquid pearl to center of every stamp snowflake.
  • Adhere Lace tape all around the frame.
