Our beloved Sadie - MDF Mini Album Picture Frame

Good morning everyone,

Brrr, it's a bit chilly this week, but I quite like the cold weather, there is nothing better than being nice and cosy in your craft room, it's just a shame I'm at work lol.

I am popping in to share this weeks creation for the Noor Design UK blog.

This time I have used the MDF Mini Album Picture Frame.

I painted the frame with gesso and sprinkled white frantage over it. I thought this would make a perfect mini album/memory book of our beloved  dog Sadie, who was a big part of our family for 14 years and who is missed dearly, as she is no longer with us. 

 I painted the frame with gesso and covered it with white frantage. I have tied the four frames together using white seam binding. I thought this was a perfect opportunity to use the Noor Design film strip die. As it is a winter photo, I sprinkled some twinklets onto the rose, painted  couple of fir cones with gesso and added a couple of the thick branch leaves. 

This is frame no. 2, which I decided could be used a journal or a smaller photo could be placed here. I have added a few of the Noor Design dies, film strip, ice crystal edge and a border die, which I can't see in Tracy's shop, but she will be able to get it for you if you contact her through the shop. In the centre I have stamped a grunge frame and applied some Dutch Doobadoo structure paste around the edges. 

In frame 3, I have put another photo of Sadie and edged the paper with white cotton lace. The corners are from the frame and 3 corners die set.

The last frame I have decorated again, but this time as well as the film strip die,  I have added the sending love heart and heart with wings die and as it is a winter scene I thought it  would be fun to add a snowman from the Dutch Doobadoo paper art snowman set.

The links to the products I have used are at the bottom of this page, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product. 

The lace and seam binding ribbon are from the Ribbon Girl.

I hope you like it.

Take care and thank you for popping in.
