Standing 3D Frame


I occasionally see an idea on a blog that I am totally impressed with and
know I just have to give it a try.
Well, this folded frame was one I had to attempt.
 
Mine is nowhere near as gorgeous or elegant as the one Becca Feeken posted here,
and my limited use of my stiff finger joints made it a bit
more challenging than it would be for you younger,
more limber gals!
I would also suggest using a much more detailed and sturdy Spellbinders frame die.


 
I did like the stunning color of the blue foil cardstock from
DCWV's
new CHA release.
 
And it could really use some nice, pretty soft ribbon, too.
This is a technique I will try again soon!

You Make Life Beautiful....

Here is a canvas I made using the new
"Collage Art" Stack
from DCWV!
(Available now at Michael's!)
 
Life Beautiful
 
A little Mod Podge, my Cricut, and an extra butterfly punch or two, and this little wall hanging came together so quickly!
Perfect for a friend's little girls' room!
Even the quote came pre-printed on one of the sheets!
 
 
I have very little experience decoupaging, but this was SO easy!
I love the way the DCWV paper is thick enough to work with, but once coated with the medium, simply peels and sticks! For the text pattern paper, I peeled off more of the backing
to make it a bit opaque.
I think I'm hooked!
 
Hope your week is going well!

Doodle Dragon {Hearts} to you!

Happy Valentine's Day
from everyone at
Dustin Pike's blog!
 
Today we are illustrating the MANY ways to use the
Doodle Dragon images on cards for your
Hubby, Sweetie, or little guys!
 
I made one for a dear little girl who loves sparkles, so the added Stickles was a must!
 
The image is from the January 2011 Release,
"JanMem8C"
These little skunks are so cute!
 
The paper is DCWV (of course) and is an old release,
"The Green Stack"
It was one made with 98% recycled paper and is my go-to on many occasions!
 
These images are sure to win over your little "stinker", too!
And there are literally thousands mor to choose from!
