Fast & Easy

We recently had lunch with our 3 granddaughters and snapped a few pictures.  I wanted to play with some more dies I got awhile ago so decided to put the pics in a little frame made with the Tim Holtz "Vintage Cabinet" and "Mini Vintage Cabinet".  I simply cut 2 Vintage Cabinets out of chipboard and 2 Minis out of
Brilliant Blue cardstock (Stampin Up).   I ran the cardstock through an embossing folder - glued my photos to the chipboard and added the Minis.  I had some trouble with the hinges so decided to make them a feature instead of fighting with it & added some big blue brads.  I added a few embelllishments from my stash and it's done.


  1. I love it! The dies certainly make a great frame like that and there's no limit to how long the piece could be with the hinges joining them. Thanks for sharing a great idea.

  2. I saw your projects over at Graphics 45 and was totally blown away by your creativity! I only discovered G45 about a year ago and absolutely love it all! I also noticed that you live in Surprise! My DH and I recently moved from there to Verrado and I've not found a lot of gals to scrap with out here. I don't work and we're looking at retirement soon, also. If you ever wanna scrap or even just meet for lunch and talk "paper", please email me! (I'm pretty normal, LOL!) Jan Garber
