Love is in the Air and Fancy Frames!

Welcome to JustRite's Friday Challenge featuring designers from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Design Team! The Stamp Simply Design Team has joined JustRite today for LOVE IS IN THE AIR creations just for you! There is a prize package offering of $100 worth of JustRite and Stamp Simply Ribbon Store merchandise! Check out JustRite BLOG to enter!

I took a little different approach to Love is in the Air and created favors for our Mothers Day dinner table! There's nothing like a Mother's Love, right? And I wanted something special not only for my Mom, but for our daughters who are now Mothers too!

When I saw JustRite's Fancy Frames Set, I could not wait to get my hands on it! The first thing I thought of was the clear pillow boxes I had in the studio! Could it be? Really? Could the large frame in this set really fit the size pillow box I had? Too good to be true but, the answer is YESSIRREEE!!!! I will be making these forever! Easy, simply stamping, and perfect for all occasions! Life is good!

Spellbinders Labels Fourteen match the inner design shape of these stamps! Using my gorgeous K&Company Blue Awning paper from The Stamp Simply Store I utilized die #1 and #2.

First stamp your frame image, cut around the outer line border. Then using a soft base, in this case I used a small foam pad and a dry emboss tool to slowly follow the stamped arc line from corner to corner. That's all there is to it!

Gently fold along the arc line and insert stamped piece into box. It looks better if you insert on the side that does not have the box seam, and fold the bottom flap up first, then the top flap down. This gives a bit more finished look!

Here is the Blue Awning kit available at The Stamp Simply Store! I used the paper, gorgeous silk ribbon, Snow adhesives pearls, and the terrific coordinating stickers. Can't beat the ease of the matching stickers.

A peek at all four favors! Love the personalization using the first name initial, using Spellbinders Label Fourteen die #1, I traced around the outer edge and cut out to give the stamped initial piece a matching framed backing to create the border!

Beautiful pillow boxes! I have a pillow box die and I am not very happy with it. Maybe I will have to give it another chance. Thanks for the inspiration.
