Emily's Name Frame

My niece Emily is turning 6 years old next week. This is the name frame I made for her. I used Georgia Peach DSP that I had left from the scrapbook I did a few weeks ago. As I was working on the name, I was wondering what I could use to dress it up a bit, and it hit me! My latest order arrived 2 days ago, and it contained a tin of beautiful felt flowers from Flower Fusion!! They match perfectly. I layered them up put a So Saffron brad in the center of each one. As I was browsing my stash for the brads, I found some buttons that just happened to be Old Olive. Perfect!! Now some Old Olive ribbon and we are in business!! This is why I love, love, love Stampin' Up! Everything matches perfectly!!

Here's a close up of the felt flowers. Aren't they gorgeous? The colors are so vibrant. I love how well they coordinate with the paper.

This one shows the letter close up of the letters. I printed her name on vellum, then cut out each letter and mounted them of different patterns of DSP. After I mounted the vellum on my DSP, I mounted that on Old Olive CS.

I really love how this turned out. I told my sister it was done, and she could only have it on one condition, that I could borrow it to take with me to the craft fair and hopefully get some orders.

There's another frame I made as a wedding gift back in November. You can view it here . I hope you have liked my name frame, and that you are inspired to try your own. Until next time, happy stampin!!

I love the color coordination and specifically the DSP that you chose for this name frame! I'm especially attracted to the way you used the DSP for the letter blocks - very creative and oh, so pretty! I love this project!!

Very nice. Love the way the vellum looks over the cardstock. Great job.
