Shadowbox insert for CTMH Brakett Frame

Hi everyone.

I have been getting some inquiries as to how I put this frame insert together. So I made a video.

Let me first say that I used me Silhouette Cameo and Silhouette design studio to create the pieces. I used Close To My Heart's cardstock for the insert. I hope you enjoy!

Skylark Bracket Frame Fun

Today I want to show one of Close to my Heart's My Creations products. This is a gift for my sweet little niece, just because she is such a good mommy to here Luna.

The Bracket Frame is a pre-assembled chipbard Bracket shaped frame, 11" outer dimension, 7" inner dimension with a depth of 1".

 I had a vision for this frame when I first saw if. It took me some time to figure out how to turn my vision into a reality, once I did that the frame came together with total ease. Here is a quick walk through......

First I purchased the frame then went to work in creating the insert.

 Then I took the insert out and inked the edges of the frame with Saddle ink and covered it with Skylark Paper. This is where I used the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartrige. It was so easy and it fit perfectly!!

After playing with the frame I got to decorate and plan out my design, inking the edges and getting the photos sized and inserted. Once my insert was decorated just the way that I wanted it was time to insert it to the  Bracket Frame. It fit perfectly. I did use a little glue on the inside of the frame just to hold the insert perfectly in place.  (I won't bore you with the details for the decorating)

This is the finished My Creations Bracket Frame with an accompanying Scrapbook 
layout to go into her album.

I would love to see what you do with the Bracket frame.

Happy Place - March Stamp of the Month

Since March is here it can only mean one thing..... That Winter is almost over. I don't know about you, but each year I look forward to the winter and some snowfall. I guess it's the kid in me. The snow makes me think of hot chocolate with tiny marshmallows and cuddling up on the couch with some popcorn to watch a movie while I warm up after coming in from the cold. Unfortunately this year has been crazy with all the snow storms that we have had. There is another big storm about to hit this weekend and into Monday. 6 to 12 inches. I am definitely over this winter. Spring can not come soon enough for me.
 Today I want to share with you March's Stamp of the Month. It is supper cute.

Check out this art work that CTMH has made with this stamp set.
 I hope that you all are staying warm this winter and enjoying your family. Stay safe and have a fantastic day!
