Daisy’s Special Frame

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!
