Design Team: Celeste Collette Week 5 Cycle 7
Teresa Collins 'Family Stories' collection really lends itself to home decor, pair that with her new eBosser, embossing folder line and you have the recipe for some serious stylish & classy home decor projects! Which is exactly what Celeste Collette had in mind with today's project!
Yes, I do have another tutorial on a family picture frame, this time I get to use some of Teresa Collins collection!!! The making of this picture frame décor was really easy to make with her Memorabilia and Family Stories collection.
Here’s what I used:
Paper: Teresa Collins Family Stories “Doily” paper (background)
Border Strip: Teresa Collins “Captured” from her Memorabilia collection
Tag: Teresa Collins “Together” tag from her Memorabilia Die Cut Accessories
Embossing Folder: Teresa Collins Décor Circles
I had this old picture frame that the glass broke on it and so I decided that it would perfect for this project. We had another family picture taken last month and I was excited to get it up in our family room, I didn’t want a plain looking picture and when I got some of Teresa Collins collections in the mail I was excited to use them. For the background paper I used the “Doily” paper from her Family Stories collections, I just LOVE the color and the design on the paper. I went ahead and layered the salmon color looking paper that I had embossed with the Teresa Collins “Décor Circles” folder with a plain yellow paper, burlap and the 5x7 family picture. I decided I wanted to add a little more to the frame so when I saw the “Captured” border I knew it was perfect for the family picture, I also added the “together” die cut next to the family picture. To add a little dimension to this project I went ahead and used the adhesive foam dots and added them behind the family picture, captured border and together tag, that made them “POP”. I just love how this looks in my family room and I just love Teresa’s designs, I think they are beautiful and can bring any project to life.
(I just wanted to show how good of job the ebosser did with the embossing folder and I love how it added texture to the frame)
Thank you Celeste!
