i have been on a frame kick lately. i love frames, and i keep buying them, but i don’t always fill them right away. this frame i’ve had for quite sometime, and because of the odd sizes and the number of pictures it needed i never felt like i found what i wanted to use it for.
so fast forward to last week, when i got a fun box filled with basic grey’s max and whiskers line! i don’t have animals, but i immediately was impressed with how masculine the papers looked. then the ideas started flowing…pictures of my husband, with the kids, in the frame, just in time for Father’s Day. so i used some of the pattern paper as the background, letter stickers, the paper ribbon and some embellishments. because i wanted to use the lumpy embellishments i took out the glass and made sure it would last with Tombow MONO POWER BOND Adhesive. the end result was totally unique and very quick to come together. once i had the idea it was put together in 15 minutes. thank you basic grey for having a paper for every occasion. happy father’s day!
love the way that looks…just goes to show that you don’t have to fill frames with photos that fit the spaces:)
Oh Sarah.. that is one Kicking Frame… I love the pictures and the pattern paper you used.. it is a great gift idea..TFS
Great project!!! Thanks for another great idea 🙂
Love the frame! I have made smaller collages for Daddy’s desk at work. Thanks for sharing!
This is fantastic! What a wonderful gift!
This is so totally amazing – love it!
I really like this idea for a father’s day gift for my dad. I need to head out to the store and pick up a frame like this to complete. I have plenty of pictures and scrapbook supplies so this should work out great!
Sarah this is awesome! I’m like you. I have a box FULL of frames. I was just sorting them this week, thinking I REALLY needed to do something with them.
Love this idea. Thanks for the inspiration.
I love the colour palette in this line! Lots of deep, rich, masculine colours and simply perfect for this project! Thank you so much for the great inspiration! I, too, have a thing for frames (and I don’t always fill them right away) This has given me some great ideas!
love this! What a great idea…I have several frames and what a great alternative to buying an artist trader card type frame– I can use what I already have and I just bought some Max and Whiskers paper last weekend- perfect!
Fantastic idea! Definitely perfect for Father’s Day!
