Baby themed Frame Art

I just love to do home decor pieces from paper, ink and embellishments and framed art is probably my most favorite thing.

Last year some ladies and I got together to make one of these for another friend on the birth of her first child, a few weeks ago my friend, Jennifer and I made another for one of the other ladies in that little band of happy stampers.   This fits a 9 x 9 frame from IKEA, I took the photo before putting it in the frame because of the reflection of the glass…… it looked so good when it was finally assembled.

If you have a special occasion you would like to commemorate – let me know, I will be happy to work with you to design/make a piece of frame art to treasure forever!
