Summer home decor


It's Friday and today, I'm sharing a project that I made for Fresh Squeezed Stamps.

In the summertime, we like to bike around to garage sales. It's a fun activity to do together. A couple of weeks ago, we found this pretty frame for a $1 and couldn't pass it up.

When I saw the size of the opening, I decided that rather than filling it up with a photo, I would use  the Subway Series: Summer stamp set to create some summer home decor -- and was thrilled to discover that it fit perfectly!


I stamped the summer sentiment onto aqua mist cardstock in Versamark, which I heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then I ran it through my diecut machine with a woodgrain impression plate.


I added a decorative brad and some twine to finish it off.

Thanks for looking!

This is gorgeous Leigh and the message really suits that kind of beachy, whitewashed looking frame. Only $1? What a bargain.
