Family Frame

My Spring Fling Stampin' Buffet is coming up in just two more weeks!  Saturday, April 28th from 11-4 at my house.  (I'm still trying to add a second date, but with my boys baseball schedule, I'm not sure yet when that will be.)  I'll be posting all the projects and more details this weekend but I wanted to give you a little preview today.

This is probably the project I am most excited about.  I know several other demos have offered this project as a class and I did a little sleuthing and as near as I can tell, the original idea came from Dawn Derrick over at Periwinkle Press.   Here is my take on the Family Frame:
Colors: Pear Pizzazz, Very Vanilla, Basic Black.  Stamps: Just Believe and Elements of Style and Fabulous Phrases.  Big Shot: Polka Dot embossing folder, Serif Essentials Alphabet, Little Leaves and Swirl Scribbles.  Punches: Decorative Label, Extra-Large and Large Ovals, Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer, Blossom, 1-3/8 and Scallop Circle,  Itty Bitty Shapes, Small Heart, and Dotted Scallop Ribbon.  Accessories: First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper, Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding, Basic Black striped grosgrain, pearl jewels, scallop dotted ribbon and vintage lace.  Other: 10x13 frame.
I filled every square with accents, but you could choose to leave a square or two for a family picture instead.  I also picked Pear Pizzazz to go with the Black and Vanilla for my frame because it matches the colors in my house.  For the class, you can choose an accent color besides Pear that might match the decor in your own home. You will just need to let me know before the class so I can have it ready for you.  The cost to make the insert alone is $10.  If you want me to provide the frame (and I will try to buy the same one I have shown here if I can get them) it will be $25.

I will also be offering a second spring-themed frame insert that I will feature here on my blog next week.  And I can see myself offering other seasonal inserts at future stamping buffets too if there is interest.

Can't come to the class but still want to make one of your own.  The cost for the kit with everything precut and shipped to you is $15. (No frame included). I now have a page here that includes this kit plus another one now.  Check it out.

What a great gift idea - I've been putting together a shower for the near future, this would make a great addition to the gift table's centerpiece!

Could you tell me if you used a square punch for the squares, or did you just cut them with your trimmer? What size are the squares?
