Here is my third frame.  It was really a fun project since I tried out using sepia tones.  I had the pictures printed and then found the paper at Hobby Lobby to use for the background and the scrolls.  The frames have three layers from Elegant Edges and the scrolls were cut from copper colored glitter paper.  I used Serenade to cut them.  It's quiet a challenge to figure out the frame sizes but worth the effort.  It might be easier if you are better at math than I am!  I hope you will get some ideas of your own and take off making your own treasures!
After a long week at work I took a whole afternoon and did my second frame.  This one I also used Elegant Edges but didn't do quiet as much frilly stuff since it has my grandson in it.  I cut the initals with Storybook and used flowers and a train engine to dress them up a little.  My goal is to get all the pictures into three or four large frames instead of eight or ten smaller ones so I'm trying to do families.  I have ten grandchildren so it'll be a challenge!

Scrapbooking in a Frame

I decided to stop hiding my work in books so last week I started working on my grandkids pictures.  I was blessed to find several white frames, perfect for my living room entry way, at Hobby Lobby on sale at clearance prices!  I made this one of my daughter and her new baby girl first.  I used my Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge to make the layered frames and then added rinestone swirls and paper flowers and glittery butterflies.  I printed their names on my computer and framed them with a metal piece from Tim Holtz.
