Printer Tray Frames


I had been admiring the 7 gypsies printer tray frames that were demo's over at Ellen Hutson's blog awhile back (created by Debbie Olson), so decided that these would make some great gifts this year.  I ordered two online and had them sitting in my office for about a month before I decided to tackle this project.

This first frame I'm showing you was for my Mom (and Dad) and it was the 2nd frame I did, which came out much better than the first...so that's what I had to go back and alter my first one LOL!  The pictures were the worst part for me as my photo printer wasn't cooperating with me and the photos I would alter in photoshop wouldn't print out the way I wanted them to.

In the end, I was happy with how they both turned out and my Mom & sister-in-law (and brother) loved them!  So I was thrilled!
I used a lot of the same pictures for both, it was just easier that way.  I couldn't photo the frame well enough to show off how nice they look, but hopefully you get the idea.

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  We have been enjoying time with family, I'm off the next 2 days and am going to stamp a little today and catch a movie with my Mom and Sister-in-Law.  Tonight we'll hang out again, we played cards late last night and everyone was really bitter since I beat them so bad :-)

Happy Monday!

Frame details:

Basic Grey papers (Wisteria and Indian Summer)
Stamps: Text Objects from Verve Stamps
Accessories: Crystal Lacquer, charms, prima mini flowers, PTI buttons, Clear & Simple Stamps ribbon, SU rub-ons
