Hi There! Karen N here with a fun way to use Spellbinder Nestabilities dies to create a frame for photos in a scrapbook lay-out along with Tim Holtz Ideology Paper.
For this project, I used Tim Holtz Ideology Wallflower Stash paper (which is seriously GORGEOUS!) and the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Eight, but most any of these fabulous nesting dies would work. Here’s a close-up of the “frame” that I’m highlighting in this project.
I cut the picture and the light tan out of the 2″ x 3″ size and the dark tan from the 3″ x 4″ size. I then cut the light tan in half (and cut off the little tips on top and bottom) and adhered them to the back of the photo just peaking out a little bit. Then I adhered the whole thing to the dark tan. I love how the added layering highlights the picture. In my video I neglected to show you the teensy flowers on the right side of the picture. These were fussy cut from the paper line I used.
I also cut a flower from the Elizabeth Craft Design Flower Set 1. Here’s a close-up of that cool flower.
Each layer of the flower is cut with alternating patterns. I curled the edges up or down with my fingers and added some ribbon and burlap.
And here’s the final lay-out!
Here’s a video that demonstrates this technique. I sure hope you try it!
or you can watch it on YouTube.
