I know lousy picture.....

  I have been debating whether or not to share this because I could not get a good picture of it before I gave it as a gift. This was a gift for my secret sister so there are no second chances until after I am revealed at Christmas. But I decided to share as this is one of my favorite projects EVER! I just love everything about it. This is my first ever floating frame (actually had not even seen one until I did this one) Here it is.
I got the pictures off of facebook of her granddaughter and backed them in vellum. Then a quick addition of vinyl and voila a one of a kind gift. The frame is one that is designed to frame an article it is a floating frame just different than the standard dimensions. They are cheaper than the others and I loved working with it. The big draw back is the simplicity of the actual frame but it suited my project perfectly.
  I would love to do one of these for everyone as it was such a fun project! I can't wait till Christmas to find out if she liked it!
  Thanks for stopping by.
I hope today finds you counting your blessings.

Super quick project!

And super easy too. I decided to give this a shot with the  square one printable.

 I printed this on my standard inkjet printer. I have a Canon pixma and it prints beautifully. Then I cut it to fit my yucky plastic switchplate and wrapped the edges to secure. I sprayed it with clear acrylic sealer.....I tested it with a wet washcloth and it did not bleed at all.... Skyler and Neal will be the true test though. Then I  cut x's for the switches, used a  skewer to get the screws started and voila. I really like the way it came out. (I think I may paint the screws but have not decide what color yet...)And I can change with the seasons if I want and save this to reuse later. Repositional is truly an awesome product. I would love for you to try this simple project for yourself. Click on my affliate link and order you some of this infinitely versatile product. Then show me your masterpiece.

  Thanks for your time.
Have a blessed day!

LOVE these so much!!

     I have just started to try and create some things with the wonderful product called Square1..... It is an alternative to vinyl that has NO PVCs!!!! Yep safe around your children and on tumblers! I love the versatility that the printable gives me. Anyway on to the project.
  A friend in a yahoo group just adopted a beautiful baby girl and she posted pictures of her with month stickers on. At month 4 that precious baby crumpled up her sticker. That picture got me thinking. These are going to be much harder to destroy and they are going to remain sticky for multiple times just in case the first attempt you do not get a wonderful picture and then it is totally safe to add it to the baby book or a scrapbook page and already sticky!  And I designed these for a friend that just had a boy last week. I can not wait to see them in a picture!
Thanks for looking at my work.I would love to hear what you think!
Have a ridiculously amazing day!
