Bunny Frame w/ free printable


Traveling around a lot makes  it hard to really sink my teeth into decorating for the seasons and the holidays.                                                  


If you're like me you'll totally dig this idea for a decor change. One of the things I do to make it simple and easy to get a quick bit of the season, is to keep a pretty 8 x 10 frame at the entryway.  In this way,  I can print out a fun pic and mount it in the frame,  with a great piece of colorful paper in the background.                     
I have a vintage heart and love most of  the images I find at GraphicsFairy.com 
That's where I found this sweet as can be vintage bunny . Just download it here. Look at those pink eyes.

I found a swirly piece of scrapbook paper from my stash to set off the image . 

When I walk in the door I get the vibe of the holiday or the season and it instantly helps me feel like I'm home, with a little bit of the things I love.


Here's a peek at a few of the frames from the past. You'll be able to download those printables there too.

Happy New Year Frame

Thanks for reading along. Please leave me a little love note at the bottom so I know you are out there. It helps to keep me going!!!!

Inspirational Paper Flower Frame




I was inspired to make something with paper flowers after a class we had down at the Coastal Bohemian Studio. 

Our teacher Michele, made these beautiful pieces as a sample for the class and I just couldn't  get those vibrant petals out of my head.

As we were planning classes for the upcoming month I suggested she create a paper flower wreath class. However, I will be missing it so I decided I would start making some flowers and make my own wreath.





I was sitting around making plans to go buy a wreath frame /form when I remembered I had a wooden frame I could use instead.

 Hot glue the flowers to the wreath filling in all the space around the wood.



Here's how I made the flowers.

Fold several small pieces of paper and cut out the petals

 Layer the petals onto one another using a hot glue gun. 

Once dried I used watercolors to swipe on some color. 
To add some dimension to the flowers, I gently scrunched the flower. 
I also cut single petals and attached them with hot glue . 


 There are so many petal shapes to use so make sure to experiment.


I created a 5 petal flower and then created several 5 petal layers stacked for a full flower effect.
And some 4 petal layered blooms.


For the inspirational quote, I upcycled a piece from an old planner to make a tag. 
 Cut the corners to create the tag and punch a hole at the top to hang.

 I had this decorative twine from a candle that I used to hang the tag. I added a bit of color by rolling it around on an ink pad.


 I stamped around the tag to give it some more charm.
Using card stock, I stamped the quote in archival ink so that I could watercolor over the words to give it a pop of color.


A little twirl of twine and some lace and a clip of an old book page created a nice layered background for the quote.


It's a very sweet and SpringY piece.





I hope you enjoyed this colorful bit of Springtime fun.

If so leave a comment below.

Michele

Inspirational floral quote tag

For the inspirational quote tag, I upcycled a piece from an old planner to make a tag. 
 Cut the corners to create the tag and punch a hole at the top to hang.

 I had this decorative twine from a candle that I used to hang the tag. I added a bit of color by rolling it around on an ink pad.


 I stamped a few butterflies around the tag to give it some more charm.
Using card stock, I stamped the quote in archival ink so that I could watercolor over the words to give it a pop of color.


A little twirl of twine and some lace and a clip of an old book page created a nice layered background for the quote.


It's a very sweet and Springy piece.




 I used it inside my paper flower wreath /frame.



Happy to be celebrating the Spring with you all. Thanks for reading along . Please leave a little love in the comments below.
