My Creative Time August Release Sneak Peek #3 - Picture Wall Hanging and Ornaments

Good Morning!  Today is Sneak Peek #3 of My Creative Time's August Release.  We are showing you some of "Just Simply Live".  This set is MY favorite of the August release.  The die gives you endless possibilities for your photos and small stamps and dies.

For my first project I made a wall hanging using the dies included in this set and the fancy frame die also.  I used coasters from Papertrey Ink for all the die cuts.  It was difficult for me to photograph the entire hanging so I gave you a few pics of the pieces first.




This set is perfect for making ornaments for the tree too!  I put two frames back to back so there is a picture on both sides of the ornament.




Supplies:
Just Simply Live stamp and die set  -  My Creative Time
Fancy Frame die  -  My Creative Time
Coasters  -  Papertrey Ink
Holiday Style Christmas Paper Pad  -  My Minds Eye
Sidewalks 8x8 Paper Pad  -  October Afternoon
Stella & Rose, Mabel Papers  -  My Minds Eye
This and That paper pad  -  Echo Park
Craft Stampin Pad, Whisper White  -  Stamping Up
Embossing Powder, Dove  -  Martha Stewart Crafts
Tea Dye Distress Ink
Cream and Black ribbons  -  Straight and Narrow, Offray
Bells  -  Michaels

The dies are perfect for ornaments and I love your wall hanging idea which also could be double sided...maybe summer papers on side one and winter theme on the other...just flip it over and make it to slip newer pictures in. I love it...great job!
