An Altered Frame Tutorial & A card

Hi there everyone!! I am here to show you how I did an altered frame using the Making Memories Love Struck Collection.

Present to you my simple altered frame tutorial...

For this project, I recycled one of my frame. Trying to go green *wink*

Next, get a beautiful lace and paste it on the bottom of the frame.

This playing card look-a-like is from one of the MM Love Struck papers called Foiled Card.
I randomly cut a piece out & paste it on the left side of the frame.

Get a chipboard swirl, dab it with any kind of ink. I used the Color Box.
Another option is you can paint it.

Adhere it on top of the playing card.

Then paste the MM Love Struck Rosettes on the chipboard swirl. You might want to adhere some foam dots / zots to secure the sides of the rosettes.

You need 3 different kinds of flowers & a brad to make a self-assembled flower.

This is how it will look like. You can opt for a button if you do not have any suitable brads.

Paste the flower next to the rosettes. Next, paste the MM Love Struck peach polka-dot trim next to the flower. I tucked the trim under the flower for a more natural look.

I cut one of the Hambly birdcage to further embellish my frame.

And of course this MM Love Struck Word Fetti is awesome to be used on the frame. Perfect to use on altered project, layout and of course cards :)

Ta daa!! Here's the completed frame.

Here's a matching card I made using the balance of the MM Love Struck Foiled Paper. And again, those numbers on the card does not have any special meaning, it's random :)

For this card, I used a different lace and added some more pretty Prima flowers.
For the background, I did some misting and stamping :)

So get your frames and start creating now for that special someone!! Can't wait to see what you are coming up with :) Thanks for dropping by and I hope you like the simple tutorial by yours truly.

Xoxo Jessy

I love it so much I feel like doing it right now! But I have to be up early tomorrow & my scrappy desk is a mess again so soon I hope. I have sooooooo many frames in need of a makeover. Fantastic tutorial Jessy. When I next do a "Linky Link Day" on my blog {where I share links to the blogs I am enjoying at the moment} your blog will definitely be featured. Your work always looks like you've had FUN creating it - not all measured & symettrical. I love it!
