Gift Frame & Friday Linky Party #6

I've been trying to use some of the craft stuff I have around the house before I go out and buy more fun stuff.    I found this plain white frame I've had for years...about 7 years at least...just waiting to be used.  My Mom will be away from home while she is going through her treatments for stomach cancer and I thought it would be nice to have a photo of all of us together and some words of encouragement from each of us.

I call it a gift frame...it could be used for Grandparents, get well from a family or co-workers, a wedding present, wishes for a new baby, graduation or any other occasion you would like.  It gives a personal touch with handwritten words on it.

I used all scraps on it and was able to make 3 cards as well....what a deal!
1.  Find something to decorate (frame, book, box...)  2.  Rub an ink pad along edges to give some color without having to paint the whole frame.  3.  Add scrap papers to create a writing area.  I also added a frame I found around the photo. 4.  Write your wishes onto the frame.


Quick Scrap Cards
1.  Gather coordinating scrap papers and plain cards.  2.  Rub ink pad along edges of cards. 3.  Place a large block of scrap paper onto card.  4.  Layer long strips or blocks of paper to get desired look. 5. Add embellishments such as a saying, flower, ribbon or button.

Now it is your turn...What have you been up to lately?  
Show me anything creative, I love to be inspired!
