Its already October and not long now til Christmas - I know how could I even mention it?! Its too early to start thinking presents!!! But its not if you're like me and make a lot of your gifts and cards. So I thought I'd show you what you can do with a simple photoframe. You can pick them anywhere and now that they come window boxed as well as just flat framed it gives oodles more possibilities.
The first frame is a really simple wooden one I picked up at The Warehouse, made for a colleague who has just lost his mum to cancer. I just added a Prima vine, some single little rosebuds and a wee tag - simple but really effective and displays beautifully on a metal display stand.
The second frame I also purchased from TWH and was part of a wedding present - the vine this time was chosen because the colours matched their bridesmaids dresses perfectly, I then just added some rubons and a chipboard heart that was painted and whilst still wet I applied glitter.
The third frame actually made the recipient cry! Not my intention but she had just lost who precious wee cat so this was a special gift. The white matt of the frame I stamped using a script stamp and pinecone ink and matted the photo onto some Karen Foster paper. The 'pompom' vine is from my stash - a petaloo product - and matched the bush Buddy was lying in, with some ribbon, extra few flowers and his initial to personalise the frame.
