Best Friends Forever Frame

Hey Stampers,

Good Day !! Sorry I was missing for a couple days, we went to "Town" to do some Christmas shopping, and just got back last night !! I think I am now well prepared for Christmas, and only have a few small odds and ends left to get !! Yay !! While I was in town, I had a visit with an old friend of mine ; Kim. She had a little baby girl last month and she is SO sweet !! Todays project is something I made to out in her Nursery, but I think its cute enough to be in her room for years to come ... what do you think !?!?

Sweet hey !?!? Its semi similar to my Little Girl Home Decor, but on a smaller scale and a bit more Baby. LOL. I used the (sadly retired) Best Friends Forever stamp set for the cute vine image and the heart image. My well loved Broadsheet Alphabet set spells out her sweet name, Kiley. My color combo is Rose Red, Pink Pirouette and Certainly Celery. Sweet for a little girl, right ?? Here are some vlose up pictures to highlight some of the elements !!

I love how the Broadsheet Alphabet makes the name look fun and whimsical. The heart image was cut out by hand, as it is a lot smaller than the Full heart punch. The pretty Pink Pirouette 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon adds the perfect touch.

This flower was SO easy to make !! I used Pretty In Pink dsp (from the Subtles DSP Stack) as I found the Pink Pirouette was a bit too light. I punched out 2 flowers from the Blossom Punch, a 1-3/4" Scallop Circle and a 1-1/4" Scallop Circle. I snipped the scallops at every 2 scallops so they would look more like petals. I then sponged all the edges with Pretty In Pink ink and fluffed the petals up with my Bone Folder. They were all layered together with dimensionals, and a Certainly Celery scallop from the Boho Blossoms punch was out in the centre with a Rhinestone to finish it off. The leaves were punched from the Bird Punch with Certainly Celery cardstock. Love how it turned out !! So beautiful. 

The delicate butterflies are from the Papillon Potpourri set. The big one was stamped in Pink Pirouette and punched out with the Elegant Butterfly punch. The smaller ones were inked in both Rose Red and Certainly Celery and I cut those out by hand. A few Rhinestones were put in the centre to bling them up. They were adhered to the outside of the frame with some Mini Glue Dots ... those things can stick to anything !! So easy.

Well, thats my project for today !! I hope you liked it !! A hope decor project like this is SO easy and quick to make, but packs a real punch !! Hope you try to make something like this for your home as well !! Thanks a lot for stopping by today and Happy Stamping !!
