Do you have old frames at home? Do you have artwork or craft that you have framed? Did you ever use picture frames and repurposed them to something else? Show off what you have.

Hi friends, My daughters scrap book is coming together. These 2 pages, were actually done following tutorials from the double take. So in page No 1, which is on the right I thought the element pages would be appropriate frames for the primary school theme, and in page No 2 on the left High School theme, I have created the frames myself using a gradient for the colour. Not very adventurous, but effective enough I think for the purpose.May 6, 2021 at 4:25 am #57670MicheleParticipant
You did a great job, Shirley! She’s going to love them.May 6, 2021 at 7:57 pm #57677
Thanks MicheleMay 7, 2021 at 6:28 pm #57687
I’m not quite certain what we are supposed to be making or sending here … but this was an old frame I made years ago … but when I made it – it was tiny. Well … repurposed a bit … resized in AI, played with a graphic I like from online as it looks like my great niece, used a lino bg we learned how to do right here and loads of colors and well, this was my result. I wanted a sort of extra bright but not quite neon effect. I think this was about as close as I was going to get. Anyway, I was tired of sitting in this chair. LOL I might play with it a bit more later. The bows of course were from “the big sale” and made from the graphic itself. Seems we all LOVED the big sale!May 8, 2021 at 5:12 am #57702MicheleParticipant
No need to tweak it at all, Minka. I think it’s perfect the way it is!May 8, 2021 at 7:11 am #57707CristinaParticipant
Shirley and Minka, really nice and lovely layouts. Great work, ladies!May 8, 2021 at 7:29 am #57709
Thank you, Michele and Cristina. 🙂 Going to try a different one and maybe use more of those toys we all bought. You know what they say … Practice practice practice. No wait, is that only in music? Works in real life, too, I’m guessing.May 8, 2021 at 5:15 pm #57735
Wow, Shirley and Minka…you are setting the bar high! Beautiful work!
Betty’s 91st birthday! I created a layout for her 89th and 90th also (in the appropriate year). The birthday balloon created a lot of interest. Many strangers came to our table to wish Betty a happy birthday. The lady in blue came over and asked if she could sing Happy Birthday to Betty. She has a beautiful voice. Her nephew is in the background and he joined in…another beautiful voice. Template from the August, 2020 A Love For Layout Templates blog train.

Bonnie … just love it. Loved every darn thing about all of them. A lady 91 that looks THAT GOOD, you know she is doing something RIGHT! Loved the friendship sentiment on the blue one, too! You always inspire with your PP “PickleballPosts”!May 8, 2021 at 9:50 pm #57749
Thank you, Minka. Betty is a special friend! Judy, subject of the blue page, and Michelle, subject of the brown page, are special friends and pickleball friends.May 9, 2021 at 10:48 pm #57811Diana Craft
Many years ago when I first had PSP 7 and was learning how to use layers, I had a website called, “Thru My Cottage Window I See…” and I made a banner something like the cottage window shown below. The original is long gone, lost in an early hard drive crash from before I learned to back everything up. I’ve done my best to replicate that image using an image that was very like the early one. Using my selection tool I erased the original view shown in the window and saved the image-less window as a .pfr file that, unfortunately, will not display here. I also saved the bare window as a tube (although a rather large one) which I do not believe will show here either, so you if you will imagine the window with the view transparent where you can add any image you’d like to see beyond your desk in the early morning as you write your letters to family and friends just by adding an image as a separate layer, resizing appropriately, sending to the bottom and then merging visibly. I‘ve shown both a cottage and a seaside view, I hope you like them.
If anyone would like a copy of the tube or .psp file just let me know.May 10, 2021 at 2:33 am #57818Annie TobinParticipant
Beautiful Shirley, and the photos are lovely … rather nostalgic really. Enjoyed perusing my friend, thank you. 😀May 10, 2021 at 2:41 am #57820Annie TobinParticipant
I wasn’t sure where to go with this theme as I do not use frames … as you are probably aware. I decided to give Cassel’s Fanned photo script a go after I had framed the Eastern Ground Parrot with a frame I had made eons ago. The layout is one I also created a while ago and all papers are my own creation. The knots are the result of Cassels Knot 15 script and the flowers, moon and stars are tubes I have had for some time and I am not too sure about the arrow … I think I made it myself. Thanks for taking a peek my friends. 😀May 10, 2021 at 5:13 am #57825
Cristina Minka Bonnie, and Annie, thanks for your kind remarks. Annie and Bonnie, neat idea for the frames.
