Coaster Photo Frames



Good Friday Morning! We are getting down to crunch time aren't we? I have a really fun a quick project to show you today.

I found these coaster photo frames at Michael's earlier this year and snatch up a few sets over time to use for Christmas and I almost had forgot about them. They cost under $10 dollars and then with the 40% off coupon, it makes it a really economical gift. They are so fast to put together less than 10 minutes start to finish. They come with a slip of paper inserted into the frame portion, so you can just use that for a guide in cutting your cardstock. This first set I used night of navy cardstock and the snowflakes from the SU set Snow Swirled, just love that set, the snowflakes are so pretty. I stamped them with versmark and embossed with white embossing powder. Be sure to use your embossing buddy on the cardstock first so you don't have stray spots of white.



The next set I made with one of my favorite flower stamps, from SU's Happy Harmony set.



I started with some shimmer cardstock and inked up the stamp with one of last years in colors, groovy guava, and then used a ruby red marker to shadow the edges a bit. I then stamped the sentiment in black stazon over the stems of the flower, I really love this set.

Then next a really quick masculine one:




I used this silhouette stamp from 100 proof press. Just love the kids fishing. The stamp is a long stamp so I just cut out the portion I wanted. I actually had a few of the images already stamped from a scrapped project so I was able to recycle. Besides my friend Lois has "borrowed" this stamp when I "borrowed" her SU Give Thanks set! LOL!!!

So that's it for today. Hope you have had a good week and are looking forward to a fun weekend and get some stamping time in during all the other holiday festivities! See ya later!
