Photo Frame and Snowflakes....

A photo frame and snowflakes have nothing to do with each other. It's just that I am going to share two of the projects I made today....a photo frame and  some cute snowflake ornaments.  First up is the photo frame.
I love creating items that are cute as well as functional. This frame has a sturdy little stand built into the back that holds the frame up by itself. And you can slide the photo in from the side.
I added a scallop border across the top. The adorable paper pieced penguin is from Treasure Box Designs 'Holiday Cheer' cutting files. The Merry Christmas title was a TBD freebie.
I popped him up on some dimensional's and added holly berries and polka dots using Stickle's (Icicles & Christmas Red). I think he'd  be perfect to hold a Baby's First Christmas photo.

Next I'd like to share these cute little snowflake ornaments.
They were created using diecut snowflakes and the cute 'Face Stamps' from Treasure Box Designs. There are 2 different sets of face stamps available. I have them both and love them. It takes all the guess work out of making faces.
I added some chalk shading and also white highlights with my gel pen to bring them to life. They are just so much fun.
Add a little sparkly glitter, punch a hole and add some string and they're ready to hang on the tree or anywhere you want to add a touch of whimsy.
Visit Treasure Box Designs to check out the Face Stamps and all the cute cutting files, and get a head start on your holiday crafting!
