Here’s a place to put your Instagram photos in these photo pocket albums called Snap Binders by Simple Stories. They also have some fun items you can layer inside some of the pockets for a cool but quick design.
Here is a demo by Vintaj for a home decor project, but the technique can be used on all kinds of stuff, including mini-books or altered books. See a whole lot more at http://www.paperclipping.com/
This is a really cool combination of many tools — a light box, a cutting matte, a stencil station, etc. In this demo you’ll see everything it comes with, what it does, and how it works!
DCWV blew our minds! They almost put Disneyland to shame when it comes to creating fantasy displays. Video doesn’t quite translate, but it will give you an idea! Visit www.dcwv.com for instructions for similar projects.
I’ve been bringing more of who we are into the decorating of our home. I want the pieces in my home to tell stories about us. To reveal our personalities.
This is my wine cork frame! I altered it from this cheap old ugly plain wooden frame…
I painted the frame brown, added a layer of Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint, and then added the corks using Glossy Accents. Lastly, I topped it with the Tim Holtz Metal Clock and Spinners. I decided to use a flower-shaped light blue brad, just to lighten it up a bit.
What does the frame say about us? Mainly that we drink a lot of wine.
But also, each cork is a remnant from a relaxed evening of sharing with, story-telling with, and laughing with someone I love.
I also happen to love the design and look of wine corks. I love the art and the typography. I love the texture of the cork.
Right now there is a wall of three framed photos of my kids, lined up straight — an old school decorating style. It’s quite out-dated. I’ve been wanting to make a collage of framed photos and art for that area but I need more frames. I’ll be altering a few more old ugly frames for this project. I’ll share as I complete them!
