My favorite way to preserve memories is with photos – just ask my family!
I began with the Hello Life Project kit (#137949 $24.95), but chose to change it up with my own color palette. Most of my accents are Bermuda Bay, with a little bit of Pool Party thrown in.
I used the On Film framelits (#132969 $29.95) to create an additional photo mat – it’s a bit larger than the ones provided but coordinates perfectly. I also chose to make a tassel instead of pom-poms using the Pool Party Bakers Twine available in the Occasions catalog. The technique is the same, but you only cut one end of the looped twine, and you tie off directly underneath the end that remains looped. I used thin white Bakers Twine to tie off the tassel and wrapped Bermuda Bay 1/8″ taffeta ribbon over that, securing with a glue dot.
I punched some flowers to create a blossom at the end of the banner, and added stamped images from the coordinating Hello Life stamp set (#137136 $24.95).
I stacked banner pieces from the kit and pinned them on with the clothes pins which were included. Everything on the frame can be moved, allowing maximum flexibility as I have new photos to enjoy, and I have heaps of pieces left over for additional embellishments and projects.
This was an AMAZING tip we learned from Carrie Cudney at convention last summer! Line up your self-adhesive stickers on a window sheet…
Place them where you want them, press down the exposed top half to secure, and gently remove the window sheet to press them in place in a gloriously straight line!!
Crystal and I worked on these together, and as you can see, the same kit in two different sets of hands can turn out as two completely unique projects.
She made flowers too, and hung them from our gorgeous new White Jute.
It would even be possible to just FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS and make the kit exactly as it was produced! Just print some photos – you know you have them stored on your phone, your hard drive, discs, wherever – and get them in front of your eyes!
