Dream frame with Tracey Cooley!

Today, CropStop would like to share a project created by Tracey Cooley, special project designer for Couture Creations.

My husband works away a lot and my beautiful 8yr old daughter Tayla is a wonderful help to me, she helps me with her little sister (3), does chores and is generally a wonderful young lady. So as a surprise I made this frame for her bedroom wall as a gift for all that she does.


I purchased 2,  8"x10" black frames from my local discount store and then cut a piece of white cardstock with the Couture Creations Fantasia Doily Die - Irish Dreams (first applying the ejection foam that comes with the die that is found in between the back packaging).
I stamped a T for her name in the middle of the doily. Then with Couture Creations 12 ml double-sided tape I covered the gap in the back of the doily, just around the centre. Flipping it over I used my Couture Creations Precision Craft Knife to trim away any unwanted tape. I then applied some blue glitter (being Tayla's favourite colour).
I then took the glass from my second frame and sandwiched the doily in between it and the original frame. HINT: I made some chipboard chocks to keep the glass in place as I did not want to use the backing board from the frame but you could use silicone to do this as a more permanent solution.

Then I simply embellished the front of the glass with some matching elements.
The best thing about this frame is that Tayla loved it!
