Three Things : Frames

Frames


Frames create homes for photos, accents, and words. I love things that I can put things in. They come in all sorts of material including acrylic, chipboard, and paper.


Clear Scraps Scallop Circle Frames (see layout below) : I love these. They work great as a frame on a page (I attached mine with brads) or they would work really well layered onto an acrylic album. 


Paper frames from My Mind's Eye : You could totally make a whole little book using these frames with photos or transparencies in the middle. In the middle photo above I placed a piece of Hambly transparency in the middle and adhered two frames back to back. I am going to be adding mine to my weekend creative project coming up this Friday.


Kelly Panacci Chipboard Medley (Sandylion) : Cute circle chipboard shapes that can act as frames or as a home for another embellishment. I like that there are words printed right onto the chipboard.


Here's a look at those Clear Scraps scallop frames in action:

    do you know what I love about you, Ali?
    Well ... we don't have time for that whole list right now -- but one thing's for sure -- you have a way of taking a product I might otherwise overlook and you utilize it in a fresh way that fits just right. It's like you come with me to the scrapbook fitting room and say "here try this on."
    Always a pleasure.

    Very nice layout, indeed. Love how you use the old school typewriter, paper, and date stamp. Simon is always so darn cute in the photos!

    Hey Ali! I'm a designer for Clear Scraps and I can tell you that their shapes and albums rock! They stand up to direct maching stitching, inking, hole-punching, embossing and even hand-cutting! So fun to see that you played with them! Love them on your lo! :)

    How awesome to see the Clear Scraps frames on your blog. I also design for them, and I just LOVE their products. And Jackie and Janet are awesome.. They are thrilled that you are using their product (I was in the store when they got the call about the Ben Franklin class)
    Come see us at CHA in Chicago - it will be fun.

    Love, love, love the typing on ledger paper. Kind of makes its own frame. Not that the clear frames don't totally rock too. It's all good. :) Thanks for sharing!
