Altered Holiday Frame

I made this altered holiday frame using an idea from Amy Sheffer's blog, Pickled Paper Designs. You can see the beautiful frame that she made by checking out this link. I just discovered Amy's blog and she does some gorgeous work! I know I'll be heading back to see what new ideas she comes up with! :)

I wanted to make a gift for a friend of mine for Xmas, and this is my version. I used a solid oak picture frame with an added bit of gold ribbon woven among the cut out patterned squares. I really like this Holiday DSP from last year's SU line. I really wish I could get some more...why do we never buy enough of the stuff we really like...but so many other things that never seem to get used and just take up room in our craft areas? If anyone knows, please let me know your secret! lol :)

I took this quick pic before I delivered this gift today, but I didn't check the quality of the pic beforehand. Oops, it isn't the best quality pic...it looks dull here, but it's brighter in person.

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Supplies:
solid oak wall mount picture frame (5" x 7")
Cardstock: Cream (Loomis Art Supplies) for background and stamped square
Patterned Paper: 2006 Holiday double-sided Designer Series Paper
Stamps: HollyDoodles (See d's - Inque Boutique)
Embellishments: 1/8" gold ribbon (from RAK from Jeannie Cornelsen - Thanks again, Jeannie!)
