Time With Sabrina!

Hello everyone! It's Tuesday, the day we spend time with one of our Design Team members! Today we have a special treat for you! Sabrina Jackson, one of our talented Challenge Team members has made a great project to share with you! I'm happy to have Sabrina here sharing with us and I think you're going to enjoy her project.... so here is Sabrina!

Hello friends, I am super duper excited today, as I will be sharing something very special with you all today!!! I will be sharing a little project I have been working on ;D. Do you ever sit at your desk and you run out of something....may it be glue or you are on your last piece of a certain color card stock and you don't have anything around to write down what you need to reorder or go out and buy? To be honest this happens to me all the time, so I have decided to make myself a decorative "note board" so to speak. It all started with a $ 3.00 picture frame from Walmart that I had bought on clearance a while back that was sitting in the closet of my guest/stamp room, some awesome DWCV Mariposa Designer Paper, an assortment of paper flowers, ZVA Flourishes and of course Our Daily Bread Designs stamps and don't let me forget some amazing May Arts silk ribbon. I cut the 12x12 Designer Paper to fit my frame, making sure I took full advantage of those amazing butterflies on it. Since I wanted the "white board" frame to be easily identified as such I cut the word "Notes" with my Cricut Expression and the Storybook cartridge at 1 1/4" and distressed them with some Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in Old Paper. To adhere them to the Designer Paper I used a Quickie Glue pen. Now that the inside was done I concentrated on the outside of my frame and wow, did I go for it ;D!!! I have never ever done a real Scrapbook page, only cards, but I looked at this frame as a Scrapbook page to have my "notes" all dressed up. I added bunches of flowers in one corner and one of my handmade stick pins on the opposite side. I stamped one of the sentiments of the Full of Grace stamp collection Peace onto some Rustic Cream card stock and to dress it up a little more I stamped one of the brand new Brocade Borders around it and since I also bought the matching Brocade Borders dies, which ODBD now carries, I cut it out within seconds. To make it stand out even more I've added another layer underneath in form of the Spellbinders Labels 1 which I added with some foam tape to give it more dimension. To make the Brocade flourishes stand out a little more I colored in some parts of the border with some Copics in colors to match the DP and color scheme already going. Some ZVA Creative pearl flourishes were also added. This all was easy so far, right, now the real deal began by adding more of the flowers. Since this is supposed to be a "usable" frame I did not overdo it. ;D To give the upper left corner of the frame some attention too, I added some of this totally amazing May Arts silk ribbon in Antique Gold, but it felt that it was not complete yet, so I got out the "Don't Worry" stamp set and stamped the butterfly from it twice onto the same rust colored card stock I cut the word "Notes" out of, and colored it in with a Sakura Pen in a metallic blue and popped it up with some foam tape right next to N. Viola, a fancy and pretty decorative "Note/white board frame" was born! :D:D. I will be using a regular pen size whiteboard marker and since the glass of the frame is a slick surface the whiteboard marker comes right off when I need to add some more notes. Have a look and see if this would be something fun to have sitting on your table or desk.

Recipe:
Paper: DCWV Mariposa, PTI Ristic Cream, Ripe Avocado, rust colored card stock
Stamps: ODBD Peace, Brocade Borders, Don't Worry (the butterfly)
Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Old Paper
Accessories: Frame from Walmart, Nesties Labels 1, Brocade Borders Dies, ZVA Creative Pearl Flourishes, Prima Hydrangeas and other assorted paper flowers, mini roses (not Prima) foam tape, 3D glue dots, Prima Flower Centers, handmade stickpin made out of MayaRoad Crystal Trinket Pin, antique brass spacer beads and Jesse James glass beads, Sakura Gel Pen

Here are a few close up views of all of the dimension.

















Here is a view of the frame for you to see how well the whiteboard markers works on it.




Well, I hope you have enjoyed visiting with me! I truly had a blasting good time being part of ODBD's "Time with" today. Get out those old frames that you might have and fancy them up and make yourself a "Note Frame".

Take care and be blessed!!

Hugs,
