gifts galore!

May seems to be full of birthdays!! For the past few weeks I have felt like a little elf during Christmas time, stuck in my tiny workshop preparing gifts for some very special people.

I am glad to say that being a little elf has paid off and I have created some one-of-a-kind creations to celebrate those “not naughty, but nice” people. I am also very thankful to say that both gifts were incredibly scrapfordable! Each frame cost me only $1.00 from Michael’s and I had most of the embellishments lying around my scrap space. But by the look and detail of each frame you would never even guess that they were so cheap! This little spark of creativity has encouraged me to create more little gifts and frames. So stay tuned for more little knick-knacks, but for now enjoy what I’ve got so far.

This first gift was created to celebrate my friend Kristel’s birthday. Since I am currently obsessed with everything Heidi Swapp I couldn’t help but make an all black and pink frame. After making the Mother’s Day frame for my mother-in-law in black, white, and pink I realized just how much I adore that color combination. I love the fact that it looks sophisticated, yet sassy. (The perfect combination for a girl my age!)

Kristel's Frame

Materials: patterned paper (g.c.d. studios); floral embellishment (Prima); rub-ons (Heidi Grace); stamp (stampology); button; bracket embellishment (colorbok); ribbon (Basic Basic); paint (Making Memories); ink (Jo-Anne Fabrics);

The second gift was created for my best friend Ana’s birthday. Ana is one of my most “eclectic” friends so of course she didn’t want just any normal frame; she wanted something completely different. There were only two things she wanted for her birthday gift: a shadow box and Martha Stewart’s Animal die cuts. A strange combination from a strange girl. I went to Michael’s on my search for her request and instead of a shadow box found the $1.00 frame and decided that it would do. I was paranoid that her frame would end up looking like a gift for a four-year-old, but in the end I was surprised to find that I actually liked it more than I expected. It could possibly be a gift for a four-year-old, but it definitely suits Ana and her crazy personality. So in the end it worked out and it’s actually pretty cute.
