Hello stampers. Just a short post today and sorry for my absence. Not only was it a long weekend but I got hit by a very bad case of carpal tunnel syndrome or something very similar. Typing on a keyboard was brutal!! So you might find more videos and less words for the next little while as I try to take care of myself. Today I am going to share the perfect oval! I am sure you have seen the cute frames that say “Home”. The stitched shape oval dressed up in different ways takes the place of the “O”. This is a fun project that you can easily switch up according to mood or season.
I used Beach Happy for this insert. There is fussy cutting involved but when you strategically place your chair on the white oval you don’t notice that the difficult bits between the arms and legs of the chair are not cut out. For the rest of the tips and tricks watch the video!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I realize that the video is sideways but in my fog of pain I simply didn’t have the gumption to try to fix it or do it over. I think you can see what needs to be seen. I know that you are patient and kind and will understand. Have a super day!
Hello stampers, I’m back after a busy weekend. Not only was it Mother’s Day, it was also my daughter Rachel’s 20th birthday! So we had a weekend of celebrations with the family which was really, really nice. The weather even cooperated on Saturday with some nice sunshine. Today it is raining again, I swear even I am going to start growing moss! Today I want to share with you some more home decor frame inserts. In the winter we made this home decor frame for the first time with the promise that more inserts would be made as we needed them. This is such a nice easy project to do and to change up for the different seasons. If you look at this blog post you will see the original. Here are the latest additions:
I made two different floral ones for spring and the reason for that is that one is using a framelit and the other is fussy cutting, so there is a suitable option for different crafters. I also realize that my summer insert with the leaf and chair does look a little bit like fall. It is just that I love red and also love the real red and crushed curry together. I might have to make a different summer insert, but do you think this is a good one for Canada Day? The apron with the barbecue tools is also a favourite of mine. Do you want to see what they look like in a frame?
The daffodils in this frame were fussy cut and they come from the stamp set You’re Inspiring. I coloured with Blends and added a few pearls. The frame comes from Michael’s from their everyday value collection so it is almost always in stock and only costs $10 in Canada.
The flowers here come from Lovely Romance which is now sold out, but at least you can use this easy version in my class if you don’t want to fussy cut the daffodils!
Here is a close up of the barbecue apron and tools which I made using Apron of Love. This set is also retiring so get it before it’s gone. It is perfect for scrapbooking and also for mother’s day or father’s day cards.
The paper for the apron comes from Best Route and the strawberry is from the retired set Fruit Basket. The fruit punches are on the clearance rack right now! The galvanized metallic paper was on the clearance rack for a super deal so I scooped up several packages. It’s always a good idea to keep an eye out on the clearance rack. There are super deals, but it is like Costco, if you see it you need to get it right away or you will miss out.
I think this last one is perfect for Canada Day although you could definitely use it for fall as well. The red leaf is symbolic of our solid red maple leaf on the Canadian flag. I might have to make a beachy scene yet to appease my summer lovers. I don’t know if we have a current set that has a sand bucket, but I am going to use the set Beach Happy and see how that turns out. Did you know that it is retiring too? If you want to add any of these retiring products to your collection and you live in Canada, just click on the images below and you can start shopping with me. I will be even happier if you also use the current host code TXE4JNCY.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have fun making this super easy home decor project. This makes a fun and memorable gift for your friends as well.
