Making Memories – Terri Kolte

sweet1No matter your decorating style, framed family photos are always appropriate. Over past 35+ years I’ve had them tucked somewhere into my home’s decor. There is a mix of gold and silver, plus a whole lot of Venetian-style mirrored frames and they make me smile every time I see one of those happy memories tucked into it’s frame.sweet2Tonic’s new Jeweled Crown die from the Double Detail collection looked very ornate and reminded me of ‘mirror, mirror, on the wall…’ from Snow White! Lots of fun will be had using this one, I can already tell. The shape of the frame worked beautifully with the Deco Oval Trellis Base.
Here I simply cut it from black foam and although it was pretty thick, I had no problem at all getting a clean cut. The bonus of using foam? It embossed and cut in one step!sweet3I swiped across the frame with a little Nuvo Embellishment Mousse on my finger and turned that foam die cut into what actually looks like a real frame! It was very pretty just the way it was but since I can’t seem to resist using my Nuvo Crystal Drops, I “gilded the lily” so to speak.
If you don’t already have some framed family photos out, take a look around and you just might find the perfect spot for a memory.
