Cute as a Button!

Good Morning Friends!! It's Bonnie here and today I am going to show you another way to use your stamps beside making cards.

Believe me, I am a stickler when it comes to making cards - I LOVE it!! but when I unearthed this tri-frame that wasn't being used (imagine that!) I had an idea.....*lightbulb*!

Of course, I love my grandchildren - the reason we live for - so I wanted to highlight my little granddaughter Robin - she is a sweetheart, if I do say so myself and "Cute as a Button"!  There is some glare on the following pictures - sorry!

Using My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pad called "Love Me" I cut three squares all 3x3 and just decorated them as though they were a card - had to get that card thing in there Lol!

Although you can't tell, I sewed an edge around every 3x3 square and also, every piece has been sponged with Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink and Vintage Photo ink to make them vintage-y!

For the first frame I used Scrapmaster's Paradise Lovely Labels stamp set and stamped the horizontal label in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then stamped the sentiment from the Sewing Chic set in red. I cut out the frame and popped it up onto the background.

The second frame I stamped the round label and cut it out. Then, using my Circle Nestabilities, I die-cut the photo of my granddaughter and popped it up onto the round label and then using more pop dots, I adhered it to the background!

The third frame is basically the same as the first but instead of adding a sentiment I used a die-cut button, tied some twine and popped the button onto the label!

I still thought it needed something to pull it all together, so I added the die-cut heart border to all three pictures!
