Foam Flowers Photoframe

            Dear friends Thank you so much for the fantastically warm response you gave to my friend Rupa's Wood grain tutorial ---that is what I like best about blogland- the way we support and encourage each other!
          Sorry I have not been around to visit....I had an extremely busy week last week with a huge patient load and my usually good time management skills went for a big toss.I feel so bad for letting down the Tuesday Throwdown team as I couldnt make my Guest DT project for them this week.
           Sharing a simple Photoframe my daughter and I had made as a Teacher's Day gift. Altered a desktop calendar like in the earlier DIY Photoframes I had shared and this time added foam flowers.

Made the foam flowers using a favorite Cheery Lynn  Sunflower die using this tutorial : Easy Daisy tutorial . I love using foam to craft as it doesn't crush and this was a special advantage in this photoframe as I didn't have to worry about the flowers getting crushed while the handmade photoframe traveled to school!

We used chunky glitter on the center of the purple flowers and added Heartfelt creations stamped and die cut leaves. This was a super simple Photoframe churned up in minutes!

Supplies : Dies : Cheery Lynn  Sunflower, Cheery Lynn  Butterfly, Heartfelt creations Leaf, Marianne Fence

  9. Really lovely photo frame! The foam flowers are very pretty and look great on the frame. The butterfly and fence are fabby finishing touches.
    I'm sure everyone understands that sometimes you can't craft as your work is demanding and tiring so don't feel bad about not being able to make something on time as nobody's life depends on that! Take care, Debra x
