MCT 15th Edition Blog Hop: Classy Ladies...

by Veronica

Hey there, Hoppers! If you've clicked here from Trell's blog, you're on the right track! If not, I suggest starting at Emma's blog so you can enjoy the entire Hop!

Today's project is a little something for my creative studio: a fun photo frame of my very own "Classy Ladies" - my beautiful bridesmaids! I was blessed to have 6 wonderful girls stand up in my June 2011 wedding - 5 sisters/SILs and one very best friend/Maid of Honor.

Tip: Don't limit yourself to fitting your embellishments 'behind the glass' of your frame. Take the glass completely out and jazz it up freely!


This frame looks pretty nifty, huh? It's a Debbie's Dollar find. It was originally black, but with a can of beautiful aqua spray paint - it's fabulous! This is actually just one of SEVENTEEN frames I purchased and spray painted. I used them for my wedding table numbers. Now they're sprinkled around our home - what a fabulous wedding keepsake!

I used MCT's Coffee Backgrounds to stamp the argyle pattern behind the photo in green. The sentiment is from MCT's Classy & Fabulous. If you stopped by during Christmastime, you might recognize that delicious green striped ribbon for my bow - I used it a BUNCH! Unfortunately, I ran out and couldn't find it again. But not to worry - my Mom's eyes were PEELED for it and she snatched a couple rolls for me when it hit the shelves again. Thanks, Mom!

The yummy patterned papers in the background and the coordinating brads are from Echo Park (This & That). Speaking of Echo Park... who wants to win an Echo Park 6 x 6 paper pack of her very own?

    1. Hey, Liz!

      While I've kept all 17 of the frames, I've only used a few around the house. This is the first one I've really "dolled up". The others just have photos in them :o) Guess I've got some work to do!

  53. This is a wonderful idea, instead of a card. Don't you hate when you find a paper, embellishment or ribbon use it all and can't find it again. Good tip about alerting someone to be on the look out for you. I know my Mom has more time to shop than I do. Thanks for sharing.
