'Family' Frame

Found this great frame a while ago at Value Village. I think it was $2.99. I love the beautiful wood frame, it is so smooth and the colouring is wonderful. No painting for this one. But it really was an odd shape for a picture frame...I guess it's meant for panoramic photos, but I don't really know anyone who prints those out. lol I thought it perfect for a vinyl word. Wheeeee! Are you surprised? lol

So I opened up my trusty SCAL (love that program!) and typed out 'Family' along with some pretty damask dingbats. I am totally loving damask right now. But I digress a little.

Got out my trusty transfer tape - ok, it's not my transfer tape - in my zeal for packing, I packed it away, I can't find it. Truth is, painter's tape works just as well as transfer tape! That I had on hand.

Added the vinyl to the glass, and a lovely piece of scrapbook paper to the inside of the frame and YAY! A great new piece of decor for my family room! Sorry all the final pics for my projects are pretty much taken on this shoe cabinet - or in other uninspiring spots - my house is in such disarray right now it's the only non-messy spot to take pictures with some pretty decent light!

  1. The frame turned out really cute! Love damask right now too *our blog backgrounds look suspiciously similar : )* happy monday!

  2. Hi Elizabeth! I'm new at this blog thing too but yes, I try to decide where I'll party during the week and add the links before I publish the post. I'm not entirely sure - maybe you could tell me - but if I edit after I've posted doesn't it come up again on your dashboard? Just trying not to upset anyone when I post then repost 15 times/week...
    See you soon!

  3. OK! here's the scoop - when you edited your post it did not come up on my main dashboard again. If I scroll down my reading list (on left) to your blog and click on that it lists your 'frame' post first, 'mail box' second, 'fabulous finds', then 'featured'. So I guess it only reorders your personal dashboard. Mystery solved! I feel better now. I suppose that means you can party on!! *do you hear giggling and eyeballs rolling out there, Elizabeth?!* : )

  4. I love it! I love the things you can make with vinyl. I also love Value Village but unfortunately we don't have any around here.

    I gave you an award you can check it out here

    I understand if you are an award free blog. Just know I thought about you!

  5. The frame turned out super cute! I agree that it didn't need painted. Great job :)

  6. Super cute! I haven't seen any of these panoramic frames, but its perfect for your project. Thanks for stopping by and for the great tip on the colored chalkboard paint! I had no idea!!

  7. It turned out PERFECTLY! You did such a great job -- and what a great idea!! I'm a huge fan of damask too, so this is right up my alley! :)

  8. Lovely & gives me food for thought!
