Fun with frames by Marielle

 Hello friends, Marielle here today with a step by step tutorial on how I created this layout using chipboard frames included in the beautiful May main kit :)

{heart} this photo
This really is my favorite photo of my boys when they were younger. I'm currently trying to coax them to do a redo of this photo now that they are older.

Start your layout by placing the large title on the small floral patterned paper. LOVE the puffy stickers from American Crafts -Vicki Boutin in the May main kit.

Cut a few strips of patterned papers and 2 strips in white cardstock in various widths.

Adhere strips as shown and machine stitch into place .

Trim off the strips at the bottom of the background paper.

Paint 3 of the larger chipboard frames with white paint, I used chalk paint I had in my stash. Let dry.

Place frames over the paper strips.

Using navy DMC floss ,stitch frames into place.
I love how these frames add texture to my layout.

Add photo over the frames (I used 3D foam) and add chipboard "happy" sentiment.

Add floral embellishments above and below the photo.

Finish layout by adding journal strips, a few of the pink puffy heart stickers and a few splats of black paint.

There you have it !
I hope you've enjoyed today's post and that you time to create real soon !
