Cute As A Button July Inspiration

Hello!
Today I am sharing a little inspiration on the

I created an inspirational decor piece using


I started by gathering some materials:
the printed image
an inexpensive MDF frame from Michaels
some coordinating papers from DCWV's the Music Stack



I colored the image to match the papers and fussy cut.
I painted the backside of the frame and the edges of the front
with an acrylic paint. Next, I used the frame as a template
for cutting the DP I wanted to use on the front of the frame.
Then I cut out a section of the coordinating paper and printed
a verse I found that suited the image directly on the paper.


The piece of Dp cut for the front of the frame was decoupaged.
Next I embellished the frame with a doily and 
some layered floral stickers and a bow and popped the image with foam tape 
on the right side of the frame.
I placed the piece of DP with the verse where a photo
would normally go. And the piece is finished!



I hope you'll check out this stamps along with

Just Go For It!

Happy Monday everyone!

"Just Go For It"

That's something I think a lot of us need to
hear every once in a while!
Is there something you've been wanting to do
but have been afraid to to take the proper steps
to do so? What have you got to lose?
It may just pay off!

This fun little project reflects that motto
"Just Go For It".


It was pretty quick and easy to put together using
an inexpensive wood photo frame, some DP,
a few embellishments and the adorable digi set from

So, I'll ask again!
What have you got to lose?
Just Go For It!
