Personalized Frame

We often forget that our stamps can be used on different textures than paper. I had 5 x 7 acrylic frames in my stash and thought this would be a fun time to try and stamp on the frames. The first picture shows the flower stamp and my grandson's names, StazOn ink was used to stamp the designs.

Slid a piece of solid colored paper into the frame, to show what the stamps looked like. This shows that you can change the pictures of the kids anytime you would like. The next picture is the finished project with a picture of my grandsons, I added stars behind each of their names. Also distressed the edge of the paper, and did watercolor with my aquapainters on glossy paper and placed this so it was behind the flowers.

The picture is matted with white paper, and I used my cutting system from Creative Memories, to cut the oval picture and mat. The stars are a punch that was also purchased from Creative Memories. The metal shoes are brads and I punched a hole in the center of the yellow stars to place them. Used tacky glue to attach these stars to the frame, these are on the outside of the frame. Will be going to Reno to see the boys in April and will have to take a new picture.

This was so easy to do and want to do some for our family reunions, have the perfect picture that was taken in the 20's. There are unlimited stamps that you can use do this type of picture frame, your imagination can run wild. Oh, by the way the frames are available at Wal-Mart for $1. Scrappy Frogs challenge was stamp on something other than paper, think this qualifies.
