Graduation Frame

I made this frame for a special friend who just finished the Sociology PhD program. 

I had to make this frame on the fly with stuff I had not earmarked for other projects.  And I also had to get the photo from Facebook, but as I said in a previous post, the advantage of these small frames is that the photo can be swapped out.

- RE Style (Room Essentials; Target) 4 in. by 6 in. frame in silver
- Making Memories Shimmer Alpha Holiday stickers
- Studio 18 Rhinestones in red and pink
- The graduation themed stickers were ones that I had lying around, so I am not sure of more specific information about them

Las Vegas Frame

I recently went to Las Vegas for a conference and got to spend some time there hanging out with a good friend.  I made this frame for her as a gift to commemorate the trip.

Girls Night Frames

I have been a scrapbooking fool lately.  I think unconsciously (or not so unconsciously) to avoid working on my dissertation prospectus revisions.  The annoying thing is that I can't post about the gifts I make until I have given them to the recipient.  This means that for some of my latest creations, I won't be able to post about them until the holidays.  Oh well!

So I decided to start making some projects on a bit of a smaller scale.  I found these frames that have a pretty wide frame at Target, and I thought these would be perfect to use.

I made the two frames in this post for the other two ladies in the picture.  As promised, I will be providing you with the "recipe" of what I used to make these frames.

- RE Style (Room Essentials) 4 in. by 6 in. photo frame in silver
- Soft Spoken (Ellen Krans) Girls Nite stickers

- RE Style (Room Essentials) 4 in. by 6 in. photo frame in black
- K&Company Night Out dimensional stickers

So that's that!

I also like making these small frames because 1) You can use an entire small package of stickers (I absolutely hate having random ones left over) and 2) Unlike the scrapbook frames, the recipient can easily swap out the photo if they want to put something else in it.
