Welcome to the My Creative Time 30th Release Blog Hop!!
I'm so happy that you decided to join us today!
If you came here from Miss Jessica's Blog, Chick-n-Scrap, then you are in the right spot.
If you just happened to stumble across the hop today on my blog and would like to start at the beginning, be sure to head over to My Creative Time and see Miss Emma!
Today I would like to show you a little home decor item that I made that features stamps from the new set titled, Bracket Sentiments
I'm not sure if I am dating myself here, but I was inspired by a picture frame. My mom used to have these picture frames that were in our house that were brass frames and trifolds. I got to thinking about it the other day and thought, I wonder if I can do that with paper? It was really pretty easy. I simply cut my cardstock to 8.5" x 10.5" and then scored at 3.5" & 7" along the vertical and then scored again at 5.5" along the horizontal. I folded the 5.5" score line up to create a flap and then proceeded to fold a trifold along the vertical score lines. Once I had that all folded, I put some score tape on the right and left edge of each flap. The middle pocket has no adhesive since the folds are there to hold the tags in.
I will be putting this on my bedroom dresser, so I thought it would be fun to give it a little mini album feel. I cut out some tags from the Stitched Round Tab, Arrow & Tag Dies set as well as the Tag Dies so that I could put some pictures of me and my hubby on them and then be able to journal on the smaller tags.
To decorate the front, I used the Rolled Flower die to create the yellow rose. I then used the Curly Label die as well as the Stitched Curly Label Die and then Stamped "You + Me" from the NEW Bracket Sentiments stamp set. I popped it up with some foam adhesive so that I could place some stick pins behind it and finish it off with a bow. For my left panel, I used the largest Stitched Chevy Die and just trimmed off the point to give it a banner feel and then stamped "Funny" and "Silly", also from the Bracket Sentiments stamp set. For the right panel, I did pretty much the same thing, except I cut off the opposite end and stamped "Crazy" & "Fun". I used some hearts from the Stitched Heart Layering Dies as well as some hearts from the Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Die set. Added some pearls & ribbons and Voila!
Here is a top view so that you can see how it stands:
