Frame it up!

Hi there, it's Tina here.  I'm sharing with you today, a layout I created using one of my favorite photos of my Mum and her sister, taken when they were little.

I created a frame using "Heavy Stripes" from the Vintage Rose Garden collection.  Cut four strips with the same section of pattern.  Overlap each strip at a right angle, and cut the top piece at 45 degrees to give a mitered corner.  Use foam tape to raise the frame, and attach to background paper.

I created a garland effect using `Classic Vine' cut in half.  Use the Two-way Glue Pen to allow you to stick the fine die-cuts with ease - no more yucky clumps of glue squeezing out and making shiny marks on your creations.

Die-cut a doily and layer with some strips of muslin behind the photo.  Tuck 'Love Abounds' die-cut behind the photo on the right

Using a Chandeliers die-cut, thread some ribbon through the holes along the top, and embellish with Pink Blush Pearls.  Adhere 'Vintage Roses' on the edge of your photo to frame it.
