SEI Fall Picture Frame

Today I get to share with you my very first project as an SEI design team member!  This autumn theme framed was featured on the SEI blog today:

I love to decorate for the seasons and especially love to decorate using photos of my family.  The SEI Homestead collection was a perfect jumping off point for this project.  I started with a plain, unfinished wood frame from the craft store.  Since I knew I'd be covering the front with paper, I painted just the back and edges so that none of the bare wood would be exposed.  Once dry, I covered the front of the frame with this beautiful pumpkin paper.  I love the foil accents and elegant design. 

The frame around the photo was created using my Grand Labels One die from Spellbinders.  I then used a Classic Square die to remove the center and adhered it to the frame using foam dimensionals. Everything got a bit distressed with sanding around the edges and inking with distress ink.  I used border stickers from the Homestead collection along with a ric rac border that I created by die cutting SEI velvet paper, which has now become a fast favorite!  The last touch was a little stamped tag, scrunched seam binding and a big old button:

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!  Since there's nothing on the schedule this weekend I'm planning some much needed cleaning time in my craft room and then right back to starting a few Christmas projects.  I'm determined to make this is the year I get ahead of the holiday rush!  Who's with me?!
