I Made It Monday

I'm working on a couple of Top Secret Crafty Projects right now, so I bring to you the prototype of a scrapbook picture frame I made a while ago. I had a Big Idea for this, but as I was working on it, I felt rather blah about the Big Idea. Scrap booking is such a personal thing to me that it is hard to make a page without knowing what photo will be used, the color combinations and memories behind it. I didn't have a particular photo in mind with this prototype and therefore the picture I put in there just doesn't work for me.

The frame can be used horizontally or

If I were to make something like this again, I think I would go with a larger photo in mind maybe a 5x7 or maybe more than one photo. The frame is 12x12 so I'm not sure how an 8x10 would work. Something to think about.


  1. Being no where near the realm of crafty, I really admire those that are. This looks great.

  2. Very cute! I, like Pickleope, am the anti-crafty. My friends bring me homemade jams and paintings and I'm like, "I'm glad you guys are picking up the slack where I left off." And by left off, I mean never even started.

    1. Thank you! I've converted the anti-crafty before... Just saying.

  3. Wow! Really pretty! I love getting my pictures actually out and on display, this is such a pretty way to do that.
