Hi Everyone! I’ve had a lot of interest in my Framed Art classes. First, these classes are designed where you can hang up a frame and just make a new insert to put in it every month. Every month, I will be designing a new insert with ideas on how to mix some new with the old – a great way to use your punches, scraps of card stock and designer paper, ribbon, stamps, techniques – the possibilities are endless! Here are some pictures using this project in two different ways – you decide which frame and what way you like best – let me know! Here is my first design. It was spaced out to fit in a frame measuring 8 x 10:
HOWEVER, the frame that I have hanging on my wall in my home is larger than that, so using our 12 x 12 textured paper, I just layered the very vanilla, basic black, and then very vanilla again to create a matting effect and then placed the EXACT same squares as the 8 x 10 into my larger frame and spaced them accordingly to create this look:
Gives it a whole different look – so, better on the pretty in pink background, or the very vanilla? Let me know what YOU think! Now I can’t wait to start creating the insert for March! Check back next month when I’ll post it after my class!

Gail, I’m making one of these, actually three, even as we speak! I hunted and hunted yesterday and finally found it in the Sudsol gallery. I knew I’d seen your sample somewhere! I already made three Christmas ones (after Christmas!) and since one is a belated Christmas gift, I thought I should make a Valentine one also! Thanks for sharing!
WOW! Your inserts are great! I think I like the larger frame with the vanilla back ground.
Gail, this is a great project and a great way to showcase our stamps./dies/punches/DSP . Thanks for sharing this great project and how wonderful that you had such a good turn out.
