The Snowmen Have Been Framed!

I have a set of wonky, but cute "FRAMED SNOWMEN" tags up on the
SIMPLE STORIES BLOG
...and hey, they can also double as ornaments after the gift-giving is done!

To start, I grabbed a few of the "Claus & Co." Chipboard Frames
 For each snowman, you'll need a large and small square, as well as a round chipboard
 shape for the head.

 Next, I backed each of the frames with a matching-sized square of patterned paper
 from the 6X6 Paper Pad

The heads were covered in an off-white pattern from a section of the "Ho Ho Ho" paper
For the noses I used smaller sized hearts from the "Wood Veneer" pack and inked them
 with a burnt orange chalk ink.


 The cheeks were given some blush with pink chalk and black enamel dots 
were used for the eyes. 
To adhere the small and large frame together, simply use a scrap piece of 
heavyweight cardstock or chipboard piece.  Make a bridge at the back with the
 material by gluing one end to the large frame and the other half to the smaller frame.



Now for the fun part...embellishing!  I added different Wood Veneer pieces 
(that I inked with various chalk inks) and then accented the centers with Bradz.  
The smaller alphabet stickers from the "Expressions Cardstock Stickers" 
were used to personalize with the snowmen.

To give a nice, finished look (as well as make into a gift tag), I traced the entire 
snowman onto a piece of cardstock and then trimmed out and glued to the back. 
 Use stickers or fancy hand-writing to add your To and From :)

With a small hole punched at the top, tie some string or twine through and your 
tag-ornament is framed and ready to go!

I hope that you enjoyed this fun Christmas craft and will give it a try!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
