Hats off to you and a Happy New Year …………..

Nervana Photo Frame

Happy New Year everyone and here's to an exciting and creative 2014.  We've all been snapping away over Christmas and now have loads of photos for projects this year so I thought I'd make a picture frame for one I took of the crafty elf.  A 5 x 7 photo on it's way from the Tesco:-)  

Ever the practical crafter it's a simple project and quite masculine for a change, with no frills to suit the photo.  He's going to smile at me through 2014 on my crafty desk lol!!  
I used the new papers from the Nervana collection by Marion Smith from Jones Crafts along with the bicycle from her junque and gems packs to bling it up just a touch, and then some of the cut outs from the paper to add the hats and sentiment.  The frame is mounted on foam tape and theres a centre slider that pulls out to hold the photo so it can be changed …….  not that I'm going to do that :-) 

Here's a close up of the bottom detail

    1. Morning Margaret, Happy New Year xxx Marion's papers are really beautiful, great quality, really eclectic and lovely to work with. I've rustled up bacon sandwiches for all the teenagers that appeared this morn. Having had a really good night last night I had no idea there were so many of them in the house. They crept in like church mice not after 2am!!! and kept Andy awake for a number of hours early this morn. I must drink Bailey's more often. Enjoy your day Hugs C x

  6. Happy New Year, Clare! Looks like there's lots on the horizon for paper crafting and I'm excited to see the new lines. I'm going to have to check out these papers from Jones Crafts. This photo frame is simply perfect for a masculine feel. I love the little bicycle at the bottom!! Too-too cute. I for one look forward to all the wonderful things you will awe and inspire us with from the many collections that you have been blessed with. Blessings to you, my friend! Love and hugs!
