Thrifty Crafter Frame

Rebecca from Fiskars gave me a challenge. I was sent a big box of Heidi Grace goodies from the Love Blossoms line and an inexpensive wooden picture frame and challenged to make something.

The tough part was that there was so much gorgeous stuff to choose from.

Wooden Provocraft Fame
Super thick Die Cuts (I used the "C", "H", "O", 2 blank squares and 3 little hearts and 2 circles)

Plastic Shapes

Ribbon (I used the pink one, 4th from top)

Die Cuts

Rub ons (I used the "l" and the "e")

Cardstock Stickers
Here are some close ups. I painted the front, back and sides with light pink paint. I distressed the heck out of all the paper and embellishments. I didn't think the L or the E matched so I made my own with rub ons. This frame was inspired by a frame made by Stephanie from Homegrown Hospitality as seen on Fiskars TV.

I made the frame for baby Chloe. I also made her a pink and green baby bunting. Isn't she gorgeous? (Ash, don't show Chloe, it's a suprise.)
