Welcome Frame Art

Making a Name Frame is a wonderful way to use your stamping skills, to decorate your home as well as make special gifts. I made this name frame over a year ago and taught three or four name frame classes. Several ladies made a number of them for Christmas gifts, and they were reportedly well received. I enjoy making these for gifts because they are personal and the creative process in making them is fun and satisfying. Another great use for your creativity, stamping and those supplies you've purchased! : )

This frame uses a couple of retired items: Recollections Designer Paper and Cranberry ink and ribbon. However, it could be easily modified to use current colors and ribbons. This size frame accommodates a 12" x 5" piece of paper, approximately.

Stamps: Well-Worn Alphabet, a variety of background stamps behind the letters
Inks: Mellow Moss, Old Olive, Cranberry
Paper: Recollections DP, Mellow Moss, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Antique Brass Hodgepodge Hardware (retiring in Aug.), Cranberry stitched ribbon, olive organdy and moss grosgrain ribbons, large Oval Punch.

I've been requested to have another class so I'll be teaching one in the future. Hope you can come! Email me at funstampin @ cox. net (remove the spaces when putting the addy in the email) if you would be interested in attending.

I'll post another one tomorrow. Have a great day... it's FRIDAY!
