Beautiful Frames

I had a Name Frame Class last night. The ladies made some beautiful frames that I wanted you to see today. The first frame was made by Christine. It is obviously for her "powder room". We used a piece of the wallpaper to pull the colors out for the frame. And she surrounded it with this beautiful frame!! Don't you love it? It has tons of sparkle and glitz. I wish the picture showed more of that. She used silver embossing powder, silver shiny pen, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, and some flowers from the Pretties Kit.

The second frame was made by Dawn and is a wedding gift for friends. She used pieces of their wedding program to create it. This frame is glass on the front and back. Fortunately, it turned out to have a spacer so that she could add some layers inside--between the layers of glass. (Hope that makes sense to you!) Dawn used ribbons, some of the new filgree brad pieces, and Pretties flowers with a little color and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. This frame is totally elegant and I know her friends will be so excited to receive this work of art.

So, as you can see from these frames, you don't always need to do names. These are very creative, but very easy to create. Maybe you have some ideas in mind for a frame. Make sure to sign up for the next Name Frame Class to create your masterpiece!! Check out the sidebar and click on "Amy's Stampin' Up! events" to see what dates are coming up.
