Spring Butterfly Craft Frame

Spring Butterfy Acryllic Craft Frame
It's spring time here in Texas and my thoughts have turned to flowers and butterflies. I created this fun frame to go with my spring decor and I have to say it is pretty versatile!  I used the 4X6 Green Craft Frame from Deflecto for this project.  My butterfly in the center is a chipboard piece from Blue Fern Studios that has been heat embossed.

I added some fun dots around the outside edge using a Testors Acrylic Paint Marker - the let the frame sit overnight to dry. I found out the hard way that it takes the paint a while to dry on this surface :)

For my center section I wanted to use a Sign Tag but it wasn't quite large enough to cover the opening in the center of the frame. I made a double mat using cardstock, stamping the smaller layer using StazOn ink and a smaller Dyan Reaveley stamp.

The Sign Tags are a beautiful mat surface which makes them perfect for using rub ons. This is one from an older set and I don't even remember what brand it is. Yes, I am a hoarder. For the leaves I used a McGill punch I have had literally for years. It was one of the very first punches I bought back when I started scrapbooking!

I used lots of Prima Flowers, some buttons and embellishments, and pearls in the corners to dress the frame up. I have found that a hot glue gun works very well to adhere these on to the front of the frames.

Yes, these flowers from Prima are forever old too. Did I mention that I am a hoarder? I love these huge blooms and I am sad that I have very few left.
