Cut It Out Frame Giveaway {3 Winners!}

Have you heard of Cut it Out?

Cut it Out is a fantastic shop that offers decorative wood cutouts.  You can find wooden alphabet, numbers & symbols, seasonal/holiday decor, or even create your own custom order!!  But my favorite part of Cut it Out is their unfinished wooden frames!  Cut it Out offers frames in a variety of sizes from 4 x 6 to 20 x 30!

I had my eye on these frames for a while, and I was thrilled to review some frames for myself!   I love that the frames came unfinished so that I could customize them.  The unique shapes are so much fun!

Because I've been up to my eyeballs in birthday parties, I decided that these frames would make their debut at Little Man's birthday!  I am anxious to finally share all the details of the Mickey Mouse birthday party with you tomorrow.  It has taken me all week  to edit the pictures!  (Have I mentioned that I take WAY too many pictures?!)  I have just a few sneak peeks to share with you today.

I selected these lovely 8x10 Balboa frames.  Don't you love the shape?  As a crafter, seeing this unfinished wood just staring at me was quite exciting! Ohhh the possibilities!  And you can't beat the price on these quality frames!

I gave each frame a coat of red spray paint.  (This took some planning and coordinating with the weatherman considering our cold winter days here in Colorado!) I added some glass and propped them up on easels on my "un-mantle"!

I taped little Mickey ears on every single picture of Little Man!

This really set the tone for our Mickey party--these were the first thing our guests spotted when they walked in the door! Enough teasers.  The party in detail is coming to the blog tomorrow!

Here are some more fabulous ideas from some of my friends who have also tried Cut It Out frames:

Holiday Beadboard Frame

There are only 37 days until Christmas!

I can hardly wait.  Who wants to join me for some hot cocoa??

This holiday season, "JOY" has become my mantra.  (Remember my JOY-ful Christmas display??)

Rather than becoming overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of the holidays, I want to focus on the true joy of the Christmas season.  What better reminder of true joy than a picture of the people I love most?!  I thought it would be fun to display our latest Christmas card or family photo on this faux frame.

 

I had just a little help from Martha Stewart's brand new paint line...

I was thrilled to try out some of these amazing goodies!  I was very impressed with Martha Stewart's new paint line.  I tried out several craft paints, glitter paint (best invention ever!), some gorgeous stencils, brushes, sponges, etc.

I love that Martha's new craft paints are multi-surface.  They are intended for everything from fabric to glass!

Come along with me to see how I created this festive faux frame...

Wednesday’s Wowzers: Gratitude

Oh my friends.  I fell asleep twice writing this post.  Yes I did.  I fell asleep with this laptop in my lap.  With Mr. Oopsey Daisy's travels picking up quite a bit, my Mommy time seems to be dwindling!  It may seem silly, but I need this Mommy Time.  Even if it means staying up till 1:00 AM, I will find some time for me!

And today I desperately needed that.  Today was just one of those days.  The phone didn't stop ringing.   I felt myself pulled in a million different directions.  There were deadlines to meet and appointments to make.  It seemed I was always forgetting to do something or neglecting someone.  I had some Mom moments that I am simply not proud of.

Maybe because our family recently started our gratitude tree, my thoughts have been filled with gratitude.  I really am blessed.  For many reasons.  I am blessed to be the Mom of the sweetest Little Man ever.  He has a natural instinct to take care of his Mom, and I love that about him!  And I am blessed to have a sweet, hardworking, determined husband.  And yes, today I am even grateful that, when I discovered in the middle of a project that I hadn't purchased the appropriate paper ahead of time... somehow just the right amount of paper showed up in my paper stash.  Hey, sometimes it's the little things! 🙂

 

It must be that time of year because I seem to be loving projects with neutral colors!  Here are a few projects that caught my eye this week:

I am loving everything about this clay flower.   Craftberry Bush used this as a napkin holder.  Gorgeous!

This Thanksgiving chevron frame is perfect.  I can't think of another word to describe it.  Choose to Thrive used gleaned wheat to create this frame.  I adore it!

Bev from Flamingo Toes has done it again!  These Anthro penmanship gift tags would be a lovely addition to any Christmas gift.

I have been in a serious recipe rut lately.  This cheesy pesto pasta salad has definitely peaked my curiosity!  I will definitely be making this in the very near future.  YUM!  Thanks, Smashed Peas and Carrots!

When I saw Michele's eclectic braided bracelet, I gasped outloud.  It's stunning, and I think I need one!  You can find the tutorial at The Scrap Shoppe.

Pitter & Glink made the most adorable pillows!  I love the ruffled pillows just as much as I love the Love {You} More pillow!  These were all created using dropcloth!

I hope you are following along Positively Splendid's "A Swell Noel" series.  I am finding all sorts of fun holiday inspiration!  I love this book page ornament that Creations by Kara shared.  I would love to have this hanging on our Christmas tree!

Be sure to stop by Lolly Jane to see these talented gals and their contribution to the Creative Carousel!

Give Me a P-O-P! Frame Project

Need a last-minute Father's Day gift???

Why not spell it out!

We created this gift for my Dad from Little Man and his 2 cousins--my Dad's grandboys.

My nephew (the first grandson of the family) quickly began calling his Grandpa -"Pop", and the name stuck.  All of the grandchildren in our family now call my Dad "Pop."  For Father's Day this year, we decided to honor Pop by spelling his name.  There are 3 grandchildren and 3 letters in the word "Pop."  (Of course this would be easy to turn into a "DAD" project, too!) What are the chances?!  We had to strike while the iron was hot!

This project was fun and easy!

I found these adorable boxy letters at JoAnn's.  I only had to buy the "O" and "P."  I decided to spray paint them red so they would be a happy, bright color.  I wanted the letters to really pop!

We got together with cousins for a little photoshoot. Of course the hardest part about this entire project was trying to get these silly boys to look at the camera!  Little Man wanted to play peek-a-boo with his "O" instead of hold it out.

FINALLY!

Etched Handprint Frame

It's always nice when someone can TELL you what they want as a gift.
My mother-in-law was very clear that all she wanted for Mother's Day was Little Man's handprints in a frame.
Well, that's easy enough!!
To jazz up this project just a bit I decided to mod podge the mat AND etch the glass in the frame.
Little Man was very specific that he wanted his handprints to be GREEN.  It wasn't the color I was scheming in my head, but we made it work!  I think the most stressful part of the whole process was getting 2 clean handprints from a wiggly 2-year-old.
I started out with an 11x14 frame and a mat to fit snugly inside.
To jazz up the mat a bit, I traced the mat onto coordinating scrapbook paper and mod-podged the paper right on.

Spring Flower Wall Art

In case you missed my guest post at Positively Splendid, I shared this spring flower wall art.  Come read along and see how to make your own!
I don't know about you, but I am longing for spring.  Here in Colorado, we are finally seeing some sun, and I am craving more! When the temperature rises even a smidge, I find myself craving spring's elusive arrival.  I created this burlap flower wall art to brighten up my winter days! Come along with me to see how to make your very own!
I LOVE a good sales on frames.  I indulged a bit in a 40% off sale at Michael's, and found a long frame that would be perfect for this project.  I cut a piece of cardboard that would serve as the backing, and then I cut a piece of burlap that was about 2 inches longer on every side.  I wanted to have plenty of burlap to wrap around the cardboard.
I began by using green ricrac and ribbon scraps to create the flower stems.  I alternated the stem lengths, and made each stem a little different.
Next, I made some easy-peesy flowers.  I wanted the flowers to be a bit 3-dimensional, so I made flowers by cutting 4 circles out of my chosen fabric.  I folded them in quarters and pressed them just slightly so they would stay folded.
I cut centers for the flowers using coordinating fabric and pinned everything onto the burlap.  I think my favorite part was arranging the different colors and patterns!
First, I sewed the stems.  Then I made sure to overlap the 4 quarters of the flowers just slightly and sewed everything to the burlap by sewing around the round centers of the flowers.
I sewed some mini ricrac on some of the flowers.  This is one of my favorite flowers!  So bright and happy!
I wrapped the burlap around the cardboard, pulling it tight, and hot gluing around the edges.  (On a side note, if you use cardboard with print like I did, be sure that the printed side is the back side.  You don't want the print to show through.  I learned that the hard way!)
These flowers just make me smile!  I do believe that this flower wall art will have a place in my new craft room.

 

 

 

I failed to find a nice patch of green grass, but I think that the snow may be thawing a bit... at least I'm hoping so!
Have a happy (and WARM!) weekend!
