July Challenge #2--Frame It Up!

This month’s kit contains a cute patterned paper frame. 

The second challenge for this month is to use one or more frames on your project.

 You could use frames made from cardstock or wood veneer, 
or you could make your own from your favorite patterned paper. 

Just frame it up!

Our Guest Designer this month--Megan Blethen--created this fantastic layout using several frames as embellishments. The frames make adorable homes for more embellishments as well as journaling.

Master Forger Lynnette has a confession to make! 
 She didn't have any frames in her kit this month. 
 While she could have made some,
 she knew she had some perfectly perfect frames just winking at her over in her stash.
So, she snatched them up and used them in her kit for this challenge.
You know that's allowed, right?
Your kit...your layout...your rules!

Here's what Lynnette created using some frames.

The mounted cardstock and patterned paper give the illusion of a frame around the center photo, while the actual chipboard frames serve as a nice little home
 for the flair and a close up of Annie's locket.
Whether you have actual frames in your kit...
 or you smuggle some in...
or you make some...
or you fool the eye with some layering...
hope this inspiration puts you on EASY STREET for the layout you'll make TOMORROW!
It's only a day away!

Kelly used a frame on her page to draw attention to her title. She took a plain cardstock frame and layered it with a sticker, washi tape, and a little twine to make her own custom embellishment.


  1. Love all three of these layouts and how each of you has incorporated frames in a different way - super inspiration!

  2. All the layouts are inspirational. Well done ladies.
