KARENS FRAMES - PART ONE!


A few weeks ago I spent ages trying to find some teensy frames for a particular project but couldn't find what I wanted.  So when I approached Di at TANDO CREATIVE with a few designs I was soooo chuffed that she wanted to include them in her stock.  What a thrilling experience it is to be able to work on some chipboard that I actually designed myself hahahahaha!!!!!  They come complete with all the little hearts & centres (they just pop out) so you can use them as well!!! To give you an idea of sizes, the square appertures are 1inch, perfect for those little projects, like atc's.  Although these are small they are extremely sturdy & will take a good beating, even the gorgeous teensy hearts that pop out!  Here is what I did with these...

For a background paper, which I used in most of these projects, was made from a sheet of copier paper beaten up with adirondack inks & glimmer mists haha.  My 1st project is an ATC. 

Then I made a diddy card...sorry the embossing doesn't show too well :(


I used the flower on the front of a Mail Slider.  First time I have tarted up decorated one of these!

the inside if you would like to see...

and lastly another Atc...

Thank you so much for taking a peep today, I will show you what I did with the other little frames another time.  For stockists please pop over to TANDO.  HUGS XXX
