Heritage Frame

Hello everyone,

Recently I had a friend ask me to help her create a scrapbook gift for her mother's 60th birthday. Her idea was to do a scrapbook layout, however I suggested we instead make something a little easier to display. I happen to have an abundance of Kaisercraft wood items just waiting to be used so we ended up using one of the Kaisercraft frames.

With our joint effort, this is what we ended up with, using scanned photos of my friend's mum from when she was young:

 Kaisercraft have some lovely patterned papers designed to fit perfectly in the slots of these frames so it makes for a very easy and quick item to create. All you need really are some photos (and 4x6 and 3x4 photos are the perfect fit), some papers, and any embellishments you wish to add... such as chipboard shapes!

The frame itself was painted white and the A2Z scraplets leave vines were also painted in complimentary colours to suit the background papers. Not great photos as they were photographed indoors at about 10pm at night but hopefully you can see those cute little scraplets hidden in there.

Thanks for looking.
