Framing with Embellishments!

This is an IKEA frame I picked up this past summer. I love the durability and photos are inserted from the top into the frame. So it's easy in and easy out to change up pictures! Love the clear inserts that come with the frame which creates a floating looking photo! Adhesive Velcro dots are attached to the frame and on to backside of each embellishment making changing a snap.

Every frame needs seasonal embellishments, right? The first photo sports a Spellbinders Blossom Three Flower die cut of fleece. I cut two and used embroidery floss to stitch around the edges! The pumpkin is created using Spellbinders Mega Oval dies with shaded edges to add dimension! The greenery is a Spellbinders Foliage die and the pumpkin stem is cut from Spellbinders Labels Four die. The wreath is cut with Spellbinders Scallop Circles and the berries are negative pieces from a Spellbinders Eyelet Square die cut. Mini gems and silver string finish the embellishment perfectly!

This was such an easy gift project! You can make as many embellies as your heart desires! I made eight embellishments for this project and will be back to show you the rest! The little one is our precious granddaughter! Her Momma will be gifted this frame creation for Christmas! I have a feeling she will be placing this on her desk! Enjoy your Friday!

Looks so cute - both the frame and the baby! I'm a little confused though; do the pumpkin and wreath replace the flower? I've never seen this frame at IKEA; do you know the name of it and if they still carry it? Sorry for all the questions, but I think it's just adorable and would like to make one.
