Today I am doing my first post over at Scraptown Lady! I am using papers from one of my “new” favorite manufacturers – Pion Designs. Have you seen their papers? They have a vintage, shabby chic feel but you can use them with other styles as well. The company is based in Sweden and there are very few retailers that carry the papers in the US – Scraptown Lady is one of them!
For my project, I created an altered frame using the Pion Design papers. I loaded it up with fun dies and embellishments from Scraptown Lady. I covered the chipboard and resin pieces with Tim Holtz distress paint. I have a vintage photo in the frame (a Pion Design image), but it can be swapped out with a photograph – one of a small baby or child would be adorable.
I also created a simple 6″ x 6″ card with the same papers. The card is based on a Graphic 45 card sketch which I love – quick and easy to put together!
