Altered Frame - Naomi's Christmas Gift

I had someone snap a picture of Naomi and I at her Christmas Party, which you might have seen on a post the other day, because I wanted to make a frame for her with our picture in it. I took the frame to her on Christmas Eve. She looked at me with a frown and said "but I didn't get you anything!" I told her "I have all I want from you, your love and friendship". She said "well that is all I need too!" and I told her "oh shut up and open the dang gift!". She really liked it once she got it open *okie makes a mental note to not use so much tape next time* and talked about what a great picture it was of the both of us and how the frame matched her room. I know she was really pleased with it.

Supplies Used:
Memory Frame
Mirabelle Pattern Paper Stack
Prima Flowers
Candi embellishments
Basic Grey Brads
Glitter brads
Colorbox Cat Eye Chalk Ink

I went through my stash of Prima flowers and just found ones that complimented with the paper I used. I added various brads for the flower centers and then I pop dotted each of the flowers, layering the mounting foam on them to get them to pop out more.

Here is a close up look of the Candi embellishments. I got these in the summer when I attend CKC in Houston. I had seen them before and thought they looked interesting but this is the first time I used them. I used the glue gun to attach them since I wanted to make sure they wouldn't fall off.

I am not sure how I would attach these on a card or layout since they are domed and my trusty Scotch glue probably won't work. I guess I will figure it out when I try to use them.

Pin It


  1. The card candi sticks to a layout really well with a little round foam pop dot or those clear sticky circles (zots?). What a great gift for your friend - she will cherish it for a long time.

  2. Okie, I think I MAY get to go on the cruise, so would like to be on the Facebook site. Wht do I need to do?

  3. Beautiful frame for Naomi! I was thinking the same as Debbie...glue dots would work well.

  4. Another beautiful frame and lovely are so and Naomi are blessed to have each other!

  5. Beautiful frame and I am sure it will be cherished! I bought some of the Candi dots at CKC and it seems to me they had some foam dots just for them, but I agree, zots would work too.
