Coaster Picture Frame Using Always Stamp Set and Pretty Petals Background

Coaster Picture Frame How Easy Is That

OK honestly this took me 20 mins maximum to do, and it looks so good, even without a photo.

So what can you do with chipboard coasters other than hold your favorite drink, you guessed it a picture frame. I love taking things and using them for something else, again this idea came from last years Stampin Girls Convention, I just made it in the look and feel that I am doing now and made it a double. So cute and simple.

Little Mini Cherish Book Using Always Stamp Set and Pretty Petals Background

Oh I am love'n this stamp set!
OK so I really have to do new designs with this stamp set, I think I am going to change the challenge to The Stamp Set a Month Challenge! I keep coming up with new things to do for this design and stamp set. I am love'n it. How cute is this little Mini Cherish Book, I must admit the idea came from one of my stamping friends Karen. At last years Xmas meeting we did a potluck and gift exchange, the kind of exchange where you open the gift show everyone and let the games begin. Well I fell in love with this beautiful note book including pen all made with Stampin Up products. I can't remember who actual had it it ws all a blurr, only that I had to have it. So I stole and in the end won and this is what inspired me to do mine. thanks Karen!
