Christmas Memories Frame


I picked up a bunch of these sheer frames by Making Memories during the after Christmas clearance last year thinking they would make great scrapbook page embellishments. Well, I never got around to that scrapbooking so I decided to use them to make frames for some of my favorite Christmas photos. With Christmas in the air I just cannot seem to put down my beautiful poinsettia stamps.

The sheer frame adheres directly to the photo. I then glued that to a 5 x 7 sheet of Handsome Hunter cardstock which I decorated with Kitchen Sink Poinsettias and red velvet ribbon. I stuck that to the front of a stand-up acrylic frame.

Stamps: 3 Step Poinsettia by Kitchen Sink Stamps

Paper: Handsome Hunter and US White by Stampin' Up

Inks: Real Red, Purely Pomegranate, Bravo Burgundy, Wild Wasabi, and Handsome Hunter by Stampin' Up

Embellishments: Red velvet ribbon, Sheer Frame by Making Memories, Stickles, Dimensionals.
