CTC75 - Mother's Day Inspiration

Hello & welcome to this week's CASE-ing the Catty's Blog Hop!  It's great to be joining the rest of the Crew after time away.

Each week the CTC Crew members will take inspiration from a section or theme of the current Stampin' Up Catalogues to create their projects.  The acronym "CASE" stands for "Copy And Share Everything" or "Copy And Selectively Edit".

This week the CTC Crew are choosing to CASE a Mother's Day themed project from either the current Annual Catalogue or the Occasions Catalogue.

I made a magnetic picture frame using the botanical builder framelits & a pocket cut from a Project Life sleeve:-


Here is the back of the frame:-


To make the frame, I glued together two layers of Tip Top Taupe cardstock & cut an aperture for the photo.  I trimmed a 4x6 pocket (from a #05 page from the Variety pack of PL pages) & stuck both the short sides of the pocket to the back of the frame using Tear n Tape.  Then I used washi tape to secure the two side & bottom edges of the pocket to the frame.  I also secured the inside top edge to the frame so that the photo will slide in & out easily without catching:-


Then I added a couple of magnetic strips, so it can be displayed on the fridge (or a filing cabinet).  These frames would make great little gifts for a Mother's Day stall.  ;)

Here is the inspiration for my frame - a decorated timber photo frame from page 22 of the Occasions catalogue:-

The Botanical blooms make a fancy display on your frame. I like all the trouble you went to, to protect the photo.

What a great idea!! I think I need to case that idea!! Although I'm not sure I can cut up a PL sleeve!!
