ProPlayer Frame_new prod blog hop

I decided on the ProPlayer paper pack and it worked out great!  I used my silhouette to cut my own chipboard shapes to make the banner.  I also used my Silhouette to cut the letters, frames and name plates.  The rosettes are made from Nestibiliites scalloped circles.  I learned this trick by scoring at every scallop then make one slit to the center.  Next go ahead and fold at each score line.  Do the same to the second circle.  You will then glue the two ends  of each of the accordion scalloped circles together and it makes a really nice rosette.

Father’s day gift

I knew as soon as I saw the Buzz & Bumble paper that this would make a great Father’s Day gift.  I had been wanting to design another frame so this would be perfect.  Unfortunately it is hard to crate something and keep it a secret from my husband since he often pops into the craft room.  So he got one of his Father’s day gifts early….

Fathers day frame

To create this frame I used the My Creations Bracket Frame Z1797, Buzz & Bumble paper pack X7164B, Honeycomb stamp set C1537,  and Burlap ribbon Z1760.  I used the spellbinders tear drop die to make the rosette. I used my Silhouette to cut the letters and hexagons.

Hope you enjoy~  Cat
