Dollar Store Crafts

Let’smake something pretty on the cheap.
(sorry about the photo quality,i need a new camera…sooo  BAD!!)
ok so first I went to the dollar store and bought 4 wooden frames. $4
I took out the glass and backs,but save the “fake” photo that comes inside to use as a template to cut your scrapbook paper.
ok,so now take the frames outside and spray paint them to your desired color. I’m lovin baby blue right now.
Ok,so use the template we talked about and cut your scrapbook paper while the frames dry.I chose contrasting but coordinating prints.
Ok,now cut out the letters you want in your frames. I chose LOVE and I used my cricut(cant live with out it) to cut them out.I went with white cardstock but use your imagination if you wanna.
then glue them onto the paper.
I wanted a cute way to hang them so i spray painted giant tacks to match the frame. to make it easier to paint, I pushed the tacks into a box to paint them.(again,sorry about the photos)
ok,so when your frames are dry. Fill them with your prints.I hot glued organza ribbon on the backs of my frames to hang them by.
Now,you’re all done. hang ‘em up and ENJOY!

New,Nervous,and Excited!

Hello blogland. Yes,this is my first blog and YES I am kinda nervous BUT mostly excited. My name is Angie and I am a wife to a self professed Rockstar and a mom to two future Rockers as well. I am like Pamela and Martha put in a Rock n Roll Mixing bowl until smooth,ha ha.
I love my life and Im very rich!! Not Donald Trump rich but more like rich with Love,Happiness,and Creativity =).
I have no doubt that my punctuation and spelling will be awful but my heart is in the right place so please just bear with me and learn to love my "Quirks".  Also any tips you may have for me are welcomed with an open heart and open mind. So now lets get ready to RoCk.
