Magnolia Frame It Up for National Papercrafting Month

It is National Papercrafting Month and the Close To My Heart special is an easy make it yourself frame with the ever popular Magnolia paper flowers. I created my kit in about 1 1/2 hours using only liquid glass adhesive and a little Tombow adhesive. I glitzed up my flowers with the Clear Shimmer Brush and made my leaves shiny by brushing on liquid glass with a cheap paint brush, neither is a part of the kit.

The kit comes with everything but the adhesive. You choices are whitewash or brown wood paper, and the die cuts of Love or Home. Your choice or something else. 

This is how I created mine.

I used a chipboard S and my Block Letters and Numbers Thin Cuts to spell Smith and the married year. That idea was borrowed from another consultant, Jennifer Smith. The S was covered in a discontinued chalk board paper from my stash as was the frame for the 5x7 picture. 

Supplies Used:
  1. Frame It Up kit
  2. Thin Cuts Block Alphabet
  3. Thin Cuts Block Numbers
  4. Liquid Glass
  5. Shimmer Brush Clear

Thanks for stopping by!
