Love Blossoms Altered Frame

Hi everyone!  I am so excited to be chosen as a guest designer for my stampin' friend Bronwyn Eastley and her Colour Tree Challenge.   Here are the colors that she chose for this round.
Here is the fun project that I made using Stampin' Up's beautiful new Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack from our new Occasions catalog.  It is an altered frame turned into a pretty corkboard.  This was my gift that I made for my downline Christmas party using an unfinished 12 x 12 wooden scrapbook page frame.
 I first painted the frame the added squares of the beautiful DSP by decoupaging them one at a time then sealing them when I was finished with another coat.  I then cut a cork square to fit and adhered it to a thick cardboard back then attached it with the prongs on the frame back.  I added a small calendar in the bottom left corner, and wrapped some of our beautiful crocheted ribbon around two ends.
 I hot glued a few mini clothespins to it and attached Stampin' Up's Statement of The Heart to the top that I had stamped and layered on cardstock and DSP.
I then added a few roses made with our Spiral Flower Die and added them to the upper right corner.
and finished off with a few pretty thumbtacks altered by hot gluing some of our beautiful buttons to them.  I hope you enjoy my project today and hope to see you back soon!
