Life's a Beach

Hi.  This is Renee of I came, I saw, I created.  In keeping with this month's theme, end of summer, I created a 3D photo frame to display one of your favorite summer photos in:



 
 I used the Imagine cartridge Word of Mouth for my image cuts. I cut them at 4.5" and selected the "layers" option.


Did you know that Word of Mouth has 3 different 3D frames on it? This is the first frame cut at "fit to page".


It's super easy to create. Just cut, score at the provided lines and glue! Note: If you flood fill an image with a different pattern, you will lose the provided scoring lines and will need to score at your discretion. I used the provided pattern becasue it matched perfectly with my theme. I also added a background mat cut at 4" x 5.5".


I pop dotted all the layers and added my embellishments.  The project takes just under an hour to create. 

Thank you for joining us today.  I hope you are inspired to create a frame of your own!
