Altered Frame using Webster’s Pages Hollywood Vogue and Bloomers

Last weekend, I stopped by JoAnn’s for their 40% off sale on scrapbook supplies. While I was there, I found this cute unfinished wood frame and thought it would be fun to alter for a challenge on Sketches for All. I was originally going to use Graphic45 papers for it, but saw on their blog that one of their DT members made a frame almost exactly like what I had in mind (check it out when you have a chance, great blog for inspiration!). Then I remembered that Webster’s Pages has a challenge on their blog where all you need to do to enter is incorporate some of their bloomers and/or trims in your project. Scrap Whispers is also having a challenge (challenge 88) where you use a forgotten treasure, so I used the paint that Larry had bought last year for Madison’s dollhouse. 😀 Here’s what I came up with:

There’s a bit of a glare on the the papers in that photo, so here’s the frame at an angle:



Unfinished wood frame
Folk Art Acryllic Paint in Rose
Webster’s Pages Hollywood Vogue 12×12 papers
WP Hollywood Vogue trim
WP Fall 2010 Bloomers
Any sewing thread (used to sew the ribbon flower/bow and also attach the bloomer to it)
decorative pins (mine are handmade, but you can also buy them premade)


Mod Podge
Helmar 450 Quick Dry
American Crafts This to That foam dots

For this layout, I used Webster’s Pages Wonderfall papers, trim, bloomer, diecut sticker and alphas. I handstitched the “strings” on the balloones that overlap the striped paper.

Created based on Let’s Capture These Sketches Sketch#67. This lo will also be submitted to Sketches in Thyme, Scrap Whispers (use fabric and material) and Two Peas in a Bucket.

You’ve Inspired Me Card

inside the card:

For this card, I used Webster’s Pages’ Nature’s Storybook Papers, Bloomers and Storytellers alphas. The butterflies were cutout from the papers. I handmade the trinket pins using an eyepin and beads and a headpin and beads. The “crystal” bead dangling on the chain is a Maya Road Chandelier bead. The pearls are by Kaiser and the flourish bling is by Prima, but I trimmed and altered it slightly.

I entered this card in the Create challenge by Scrapbook Trends, Cards and Simply Handmade Magazines. All you need to do to enter is create a card decorated w/a butterfly and email your entry. For full details or to enter, CLICK HERE.
