Mini Scrapbook in a Frame with Roxie, Limited Edition and Art Philosophy

Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month Blog hop featuring "Limited Edition". If you have come here from Cindy's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around just by clicking on the links at the end of the post.

This project came to me in a flash of inspiration, which was good as I was really struggling with what to make with this set!  I love the projects they showed in the Idea Book but didn't want to make something too similar so I really had to think about what I could make that was a little more out of the box for this set.  I think I achieved "out of the box" but now I'm in a frame!  This is actually one of those $1 cheapie wooden picture frames from Michael's Crafts that I've painted and faced with Roxie paper but here is the surprise - inside the opening is a pull out mini-book!


Here is a close up of the front of the accordian album.  The tag is stamped with several images from the set and I thought the clock made the perfect bird belly.


You can either untie the ribbon or simply pull the flap from under it and here comes the accordian album!

The pages are size just right for the wallet or wallet minis that you get from school pictures. This will be a lovely way to display my three kids photos when they get their Fall school pictures taken.  I also have two journaling areas for the year and the kid's grade levels to be written.

Here are the last two pages closer up so you can see the stamped journaling tag and the sweet little heart surprise at the end.  The heart is attached to the backing black cardstock on the flip side of the frame.

If you'd like to make this project, get these supplies:
Other:  Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge, Silver Glitz, Black Grosgrain Ribbon, White Hemp, Black Paint, $1 frame at Michael's (this one has a 3.5"x3.5" opening)
Now "Hop" on over to Angela's Blog to see her work!
Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the September SOTM is only available until the 30th!  You can purchase this set outright for $17.95 or get it for just $5 with a $50 purchase by clicking here!
