Make Your Own - Frames

Today we'll look at frames.  Often they can be made pretty simply by matting the photo - and in this case, the whole page.  Notice how the red frame is enhanced with a few peel off stickers.

Here's another simple mat-type frame.  This one is enhanced with a clip art bow that has been cut out, and some Jewel Dazzles in the upper right corner.

This frame is basically a mat with a fancy-cut edge.  It is enhanced with clip art of ribbons and bow that have been printed, cut out, and glued to the frame.  A few Jewel Dazzles finish off one corner.

Simple techniques like these can really enhance your scrapbook page, card, or other paper craft item.

super blog post idea! Seeing the 3 different examples simply and sweetly created and explained was great!

Even clean and simple layouts can be very effective and lovely to reminisce over!
