Even though it doesn't look like it outside, and the temps don't exactly show it, it's beginning to look and feel like Christmas around here! It took me a while to get the tree put up and finished, but that is done, and the stockings are hung. And I've been busy making Christmas cards and a few Christmas presents. I have one gift that I am extremely excited about completing, and I have been anxiously trying to share it on here! When I went to Close To My Heart's annual convention in July, I won a bag full of new products, including the display tray, My Creations star, and the My Creations bracket frame. It has taken me until now to finally assemble the bracket frame, but I think it was worth the wait.
This was created with the Avonlea paper pack from CTMH. I love the way the brown on the outside of the frame, brings out the little bit of brown on the interior paper! This frame was created at the St Louis training this fall, but Colonial White paper was used on the outside, instead of the Chocolate paper. I think I prefer my version a little bit more. The rosettes on the bottom corner were created with the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. The alphabet at the bottom is the Houndstooth alphabet, sponged with Slate ink to bring out the pattern. I wish this wasn't being retired in the spring, but maybe that means something even better is in the new idea book! Bakers twine and sparkles complete the look. With the "Together" sentiment, I envision adding a family picture, a newly married couple, or even 3 generations of family that get together every Christmas. I can't wait to see what picture my friend puts in this frame! I have another one of these dimensional frames that I'm going to finish as a gift, and I'm thinking I'm going to use paper from the Stella paper pack. I have it all worked out in my head, just need to squeeze in the time to complete it. I need to finish the wooden crosses I am embellishing with the Roxie paper pack, then I'll get back to these frames. Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
