Holiday Frames

Good morning all! Happy Valentine's Day!

So awhile ago, I bought these frames at Target. They were a $1 for a three pack so I bought three separate packs. One each of black, white, and silver. I used some of the frames to put pictures of my son and various relatives in and decorated them a bit and gave them to the respective relative for Christmas. I had three left over and wanted to use them, but couldn't figure out what to do with them. I was looking at crafty blogs (that's what I do when my son is on one of his "I do it by myself" kicks) and got the idea to use them for holiday decor. I started with Valentine's Day and I plan to make interchangeable "pictures" for each holiday.

Here is the first one...
The patterned papers are DCWV. The ribbon is from the Paper Studio. I cut the "love" sentiment with my Making Memories Slice using the Basic 1 card then I ran it through my Texture Boutique with a dotted embossing folder. :)
Here is a close up so you can see the embossing. :)
And this is what it looks like in the frame. :)
This is 2 of 3. ;) I used the monogram "A" for our last name. I cut it out using the Slice again but this time I used the Wedding card. The ribbon is from my stash (possibly from and old Michael's dollar bin) The patterned paper is Recollections.
The edge punch is EK Success Arrow.
Here it is in it's frame. ;)
Here is 3 of 3. ;) The punch around the page is Martha Stewart Deco Fan. I cut the hearts with my Cricut Expression using the Sweethearts cartridge. The "smoochie" velum sticker is old EK Success.
And the close up. I used my Slice and the Words and Expressions Holiday card to cut the "hugs" sentiment.
And here's the frame. :)

Next up I'm going to make some St. Patrick's Day "photos" for them! :)

Also, DON'T FORGET about the awesome giveaway over at Shery K. Designs!

Thanks for looking, hope you are inspired! Have a wonderful Valentine's Day! :)
