Video Tutorial: faux paper frame

I'm slowly but surely trying to update my much-neglected blog.  I still have dozens of projects from last year that I haven't posted here yet.  Here's a layout I created for Creating Keepsakes magazine using Jolee's Boutique French General line of embellishments :

It looks kind of like the page is in a real wood frame, right?  Nope!  I made the frame out of cardstock.  It has dimension, but it's flat enough to fit inside a page protector.  If you'd like to try this technique, check out this video tutorial that I created for CK:  Faux Frame Tutorial YouTube

A couple more Valentine's cards

I hope you all had a nice Valentine's Day everyone!  We had a lovely Valentine's Day here.  My sweet hubby broke our "no-presents on V-Day" rule and he got me a gift certificate for a spa package (massage or facial, exfoliation treatment, and a spa pedicure) at Burke Williams spa.  I haven't had a massage or facial in YEARS (at least 10), so this will be quite a treat!

Here are a couple more Valentine's Day cards I made with the new Queen & Co. Trendy Tapes (aka washi tape).

Have a wonderful weekend!
