LESSology Challenge #8: Creative projects of Angi Barrs, Mandy Dodd and Julie Tucker-Wolek!


Today we get to see the creative projects of Angi Barrs, Mandy Dodd and Julie Tucker-Wolek. :)

Angi Barrs

Hello everyone! It's Angi here to share my altered frame creation! And I have a little confession to make. This is not the original altered frame that I made for this challenge. After staring at the original one for hours, I decided that I really didn't like it very much. LOL Have you ever created something and just didn't like the end result?

Here's my frame design re-do! I like this one must better! (smile)

My flowers had missing pearls and brads, so I recycled some and added them to the middle of each bloom. The ribbon that I used was ripped in the middle. I used some extra thread that I had lying around to patch it up for this frame.

The frame is from Ikea and the beautiful paper is from My Mind's Eye. This frame will be under the tree for a good friend of mine! :)

Mandy Dodd

Hi, its Mandy  and I've been creating with a 12x12 decorative edge (or diecut) scrapbooking paper which is mounted on a cardboard backing for strength.  You could use this idea to show off artwork/scrapping page etc with a pretty frame you can hang!

Start with a 12x12 diecut - it needs to be good for cutting out a frame

So following the conture of the decorative edge...

cut out the frame... and measure cardboard to match its size

Paint directly on cardboard OR cover the cardboard with artwork, or scrapping LO

Place foam mounting tape on the underside of the decorative cut-out frame

And here's the end result!
A 12x12 piece ready to be hung
(my youngest dd (15) claimed this already!)

Cant wait to see what you create!
and thanks for looking

Julie Tucker-Wolek

Hi everyone :)

When I saw our altered frame challenge, I decided to take a different twist on it :) I found this on clearance - it's from Plaid Crafts - and as you can see, it looks like they intended it to be a memo board.  Well, I decided to make my own version of a frame from this :)

And here is what I created with it :)  I used Graphic 45's Christmas Emporium line on here :) 

I can't wait to see what everyone creates! :)  ~~Julie :)

Aren't these just awesome projects? We would love to see your take on LESSology Challenge #8: Frame of Life. Please leave a comment for our design team.
