Hello! Today, I have a layout to share with you that was part of a make-n-take I did a couple of weeks ago at VIP Scrapbook in Rochester. For the make-n-take I shared how you can take the Grand Dies from Spellbinders™ and create frames and journaling blocks for your layouts.I have to say a huge Thank You to my cousin Dani for letting me use the photos of her sweet little girl!! This layout is a very simple one compared to the layouts I usually create but I was going for simplicity and I wanted the frames to be the main focus of the layout in addition to the sweet photos. To create the largest frame I used LF-168 Grand Large Labels #3 and #5.I taped the two die templates together and used the Grand Calibur™ to cut/emboss the two pieces. Next I took the drop out piece from the large frame and taped three die templates together to create the smaller frame. I used LF-168 Grand Large Labels #1 and S4-168 Large Labels #2 and #3. Then I used the Grand Calibur™ to cut/emboss all the pieces. Here are the results three frames and two pieces that could be used as journal blocks, mats for photos or as an embellishment. I didn't use all of the pieces on the layout but I wanted to show how easy it is to create perfect looking frames using the Grand Dies from Spellbinders™.I used chipboard letters from My Mind's Eye Lush Line and added Green Stickles and added them to a label. To create the label I used S4-309 Labels Four Small #5. For the butterflies I used S5-051 Fanciful Flight. For a finishing touch I added diamond stickles to the butterflies and some of the images on the paper. I also added some green lace trim and yellow pom pom trim to the bottom.
