Scrapping some photos to put into frames is my new favorite thing! I just love to scrapbook but I hate to file those layouts away where they will hardly ever be seen! This is a simple way to add a little pizazz to your usual framed photos!
My sister was an angel and took some amazing family photos for us this summer. I went ahead and printed out a few of my favorites in wallet size- 2x3.
Next, I created the striped background by watercoloring some simple stripes at an angle. I didnt worry about them being perfect. I like the hand painted look!
When the background was dry, I arranged my photos, placed soem paper doilies in a few places, a strip of washi tape in the background, and I placed a Heidi Swapp wooden saying towards the left side. I just love this wood cutout. It came with the printed paper that I used to cover the back of it. It fits the colors in the photos perfectly!
For a few last details, I placed some black heart rhinestones here and there, and then wrote the date in with a black Micron pen.
I kept it super simple, because I always feel like if I try to do too much it just doesnt look right!
I havent decided where to place my frame yet, but Im thinking of just keeping it in my craft room for a while. The colors match perfectly with my craft room, and these two guys are the inspiration for most of my projects!

Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge!
I'm half tempted to go ahead and just use all the frames in my house to scrap in! I think its a fantastic way to add a little personality to your decor.
So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
