Stampin' UP! Blog Hop

I'm super excited to welcome you to July's Go Stamp It sisters blog hop featuring some lovely and talented Stampin' UP! demonstrators.

You may have hopped on over from Sami's or Denise's blog! Aren't they both sooo good?! They definitely have an eye for CUTE!

This month, we are featuring the Around the World stamp set from pg 48 of the 2013-2014 Stampin' UP! Catalog.

This time around I decided to change it up a bit and go with decorating a picture frame (instead of a card) that I am preparing for a picture that we will be taking next month for our family vacation in Florida (HOORAY!).
9 3/4" x 7 3/4" frame holds 4" x 6" picture.

I am so glad that I put this together ahead of time that way I can just print the picture out and I'm ready to go! 

No need to invest a whole lot of time in this project because the designer series paper (DSP) does most of the work for you. I love the combination of shapes, colors, and print on this paper.

My tips:
to cut out the DSP for the frame: 
  • first cut the paper to the outside dimensions of the frame (in my case it was 9 3/4" x 7 3/4").
  • place the paper exactly where you want it but don't glue it down yet.
  • use your finger to locate the corners of the inside frame and use either your paper piercer or your craft knife, pierce each of the four corners of the paper where your picture would go.
  • remove the paper and connect the four corners so you can cut the middle out.....voila!

Supplies Used:
  • cardstock: crumb cake, gumball green, very vanilla
  • DSP: Epic Day This and That
  • stamps: around the world
  • inks: crumb cake, gumball green, basic gray, versamark
  • white gel pen
  • paper piercing template and paper piercer
  • other: decoupage glue, wood frame (I got mine at wal-mart) 

Your next hop is with the amazing Caren (click her link below)! You will love her project!

Thank you so much for hopping by and would love to hear your comments!
