From Trash to Treasure #2

I have 2 pictures of my Mom that are sweet and hilarious so I thought they would be a perfect candidate for one of my Trash to Treasure shadow boxes. I also got to use a few new colors from the Regals Classics Ink Pads i got for Christmas :D

For this frame I used a basic Ivory card stock around the outer part of the frame and layered it with stamped images to give it the vintage feel. 

Here is it on my wall, I like to stagger my frames to they all fit together like puzzle pieces, this is currently a work in progress.

What I used on this project:
  • Paper: 12x12 Purple polka dot paper (SU Regals), 12x12 Ivory card stock (maker unknown)
  • Stamps: Friends 24-7(SU-wood mount), French Foliage (SU - wood mount)
  • Inks: Espresso, Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy, Cherry Cobbler (SU -Classics), Fired Brick and Frayed Burlap (TH Distress Inks)
  • Flowers ( Prima and Hero Arts )
  • Snaps (Making Memories)
  • Stickers: Memories (K & Co) Butterflies (K & Co)
  • Frame: An old awards frame courtesy of my friend Tracy.

Thanks for lookin',
