fillable frames revisited

I can hardly believe that the first month of 2012 has flown by, but here we are at February. February is a big month for Papertrey Ink. In a few days the celebration countdown will officially begin!

Today is the Papertrey Ink senior design team challenge. This month we revisit the Fillable Frames collection - definitely one that has a special place in my heart :) Fillable Frames became a basic in so many of your stamp collections as well as mine and I love how the frame images are a perfect place for a sentiment, to frame and image, as a tag, etc.

For my projects that I have to share today, I used the Fillable Frames #10 frame image in a simple, no fuss way to create a 6x12 scrapbook page and card.

This is pretty much a one layer card besides the heart embellishments. I stamped the frame in the lower right corner and then masked it off to stamp the floral background on the rest of the card front. I could have used the coordinating die, but chose to trim out a mask so that the stamped background went right up to the edge of the frame.

Inspired by the wedding mini book I created for this last month's release, I created this 6x12 scrapbook page to add in the front of my wedding scrapbook that I will complete someday. I fell in love with the colors and elements I used in the mini book and plan to use the same for the larger book. I will print my favorite pictures in the same vintage black & white format and then keep the colored prints that I have in a back section of the scrapbook... that's the plan in my head right now, anyway!

The month that FIllable Frames #10 was released, so was Warm Happiness Too. I love the frame image stamped subtly in the background along with the steam out of the cup.

For this card, I cut the frame in half and then had it peek out from either side of the main image on the card.

A perfect spot for a main image to land, like the butterfly on this card/tag duo.

I used the frame on these back to school scrapbook pages for my girls...

a perfect spot to add a few facts and/or thoughts.
