Friday Frame Up...

Happy TGIF!  I can't believe how fast this week has flown by!  Wow!  I don't think the weeks that we are in school move HALF this quickly.  I'm looking forward to the weekend...just spending time with Mike and the kids.  Mike and Zach are planning to get the deck done. *fingers crossed*  I'm hoping the rain stays away so they can do what they need to do.

Today I'm posting a new project that I'm kind of excited about.  I've been wanting to try out this technique ever since I got back from Convention.  I actually went out and bought the frame right after we got home.  I hadn't decided exactly what I wanted to use to do it but.....  Well let me show it to you and then I'll explain.

The photo is one of my faves.  It was taken on our "date night" last year at Disney.  My cousin, Heather, gave us a "date night" as a gift along with front row tickets to Cirque du Soleil at Disney's West Side.  We went to dinner at Paradiso 37 and had a fabulous time.  We will always remember that special night.
The circles are called "Lollies" or "Yo Yo's"... They are made from Designer Series Paper and really easy (and addictive) to make.  You can make them any size you'd like and you can also embellish them in many, many ways.  It's funny when I look at it now and think, "Wow!  That was just a $6.00 frame from WalMart and NOW look at it!"  The best part is that you can get several Lollies out of one sheet of Designer Series Paper AND even better....it's double sided with two different designs for lots of different combinations.  Woot!



So here's the supply list:

Designer Series Paper: 122367 "Paisley Petals"
Card Stock:  Scraps of 119682 Marina Mist,  105109 Bravo Burgundy,  
100730 Whisper White and 119794 Peach Parfait
Accessories:  117273 Antique Brads
Punches: 119873 3/4" Circle,  119868 1",  122464 Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer,

It's a great gift idea for lots of occasions.  I'm taking advantage of the Special Offer on the Designer Series Paper that's going on now until August 31st.  It's Buy 3 Get 1 Free!  I can get lots of Christmas presents all done for not a lot of money.  You can't beat that!  And who wouldn't LOVE to get a handmade, personalized gift?  If you'd like to see all the DSP that's included in this great special, go to my online store.

There are SO many beautiful papers included.  If you're checking them out in your own catalog, you can find them on pages 184-186.

I'm working on a photo tutorial that will be posted on my blog soon....it's step by step instructions on how to  make Lollies.  Don't miss it!  They would be SO  stinkin' cute hanging all over a Christmas tree or wreath.  The possibilities are endless!

Thanks for stopping by!   Have a wonderful weekend!
