Today I am going to highlight the Stamp of the Month Set called "My Favorite Kind". I love the sentiments on this set and how they could be used for any loved one or special friend in your life.

I just moved my craft space into another room in our house and I want to decorate it with pictures of my boys and husband. I decided to make my own picture frame for one of the pictures of my husband and I.


To make this frame, I just cut a piece of chipboard to a 6x6 inch square. I found the background paper in my stash, attached it using my atg gun and then inked the edges with brown memento ink. I cut the two hearts on my silhouette in coordinating papers and added a button and twine for an added touch. I used another coordinating paper to attach our picture to and attached the whole piece again with my atg gun. I found the thick twine in my ribbon drawer (no idea where I got it from) and knew it would be perfect to wrap around and tie off at the bottom. I then used my new Pink by Design stamp set "My Favorite Kind" for the sentiment. It is just perfect for the picture!

Here are a couple close of views:



I decided that I am going to make frames with pictures of my boys that match and use different sentiments from the same set! I will definitely post them as soon as they are finished!

BLOG CANDY!!!
