FRAME FRIDAY.....She's A little Bit Country


So keeping with the theme of the month my frame this month is a cowgirls frame  and I wanted to share it with you.



So I used a piece of Burlap paper to cover the front of the frame then inked the edges with Ranger Distress ink in Vintage photo to create an aged look. Next I took denim fabric and created my own ribbon which I layered down the right side of the frame. Next I took 2 denim colored flowers by paper studio and adhered to the top of the ribbon.
Next I printed the cowgirl and sentiment onto card stock using Gecko Galz Ride Em Cowgirl craft kit and cut them out then inked the edges with my brown ink. Now I layered the cowgirl to the left side of the frame and the sentiment on the right and finished it off with Viva pearl pen in silver.
This makes a great cowgirl gift for your bestie.

FRAME FRIDAY.........Pretty as a Princess

For this months frame I did a frame for a very special little girl. Everyone dreams of being a princess and Disney captures the art of being a princess in every way. I started with my wooden frame from Michaels (these are fantastic if you need a last minute gift) and covered with Disney paper by DCWV and inked the edges with Distress ink in Rippened berries. I took an image from DCWV 8x8 Disney princess pack and adhere to the lower left corner. Take your cream Viva pearl pen and add to the frame opening and around the princess image. Next at the top add white lace and pink and yellow braided trim as well as a pink paper rose by recollections. to finish add pearl pen just above the trim.
this is a great baby shower gift.
Happy Crafting

TAG TUESDAY.........Here Comes Peter Cotton Tail

I thought for this months Tag it would be fun to do an Easter tag, this is a perfect tag to tie to an Easter basket or around a giant chocolate Easter Bunny just to take it to that next level of gift giving!



So you will need to have
Kraft shipping tag by Ranger
Tim Holtz stencil
light pink ink
ink blending tool
white Milk paint
popsicle sticks
images below from Gecko Galz and Jeni Bowlen
Distress ink in vintage photo and purple
little pink flowers by Paper Studio
Viva Pearl Pen in White
Pink ribbon and Fibers


Start by inking tag with light pink ink and stencil.


Then go back and add some of the purple ink.


Next add your printed paper to the tag making sure your edges at the bottom match up.


Ink the edges with your purple ink (use a light touch to get that soft whispy effect)


Next Take your popsicle sticks and cut to different lengths then paint with your white milk paint do not worry if it is streaky we want that shabby chic look and rough edges are fine.


now adhere your sticks to the top edge of the paper you want to make sure they are spaced where you can get 6 sticks across upper edge.


Next take your mini alphabet stamps and brown ink and stamp a letter on each stick that spells out Easter.


Next cut out your Easter bunny and two Bingo cards and ink the bunny edges with brown and the Bingo cards with purple. Then layer on bingo cards and using pop dots place bunny over them.


Add White pearl pen around edges of Bingo Card.


Adhere pink flowers around the upper edge of popsickle sticks.


Finish by adding pink silk ribbon and fibers through hole. Now you are ready to give with a very special Easter goodie.




Here are the products I used to create this amazing tag.
Have fun creating your own tags.
Happy Easter
