Tap, tap, tap, , , Is this thing on???


Well, how in the world has it been a month since I posted!  Not good, not good at all!  It’s not like I haven’t been stamping–I have made quite a few cards–life just got in the way.  I did go to Illinois to visit my Mom, and we had fun crafting together, then I came back home and lost my phone–ACK!!!  Public Service Announcement–do NOT place anything on your car (i.e. a phone!!) and drive off.  Sob—

Anyhow, I do have some super cute cards and projects to share with you all!  The project today is the one I made with my Mom and my SIL.  I have seen collages all over Pinterest and on other peoples blogs, and I have been wanting to make one forever!  It is so easy to make with all of the different punches from Stampin’Up!  Now, I will tell you that the frame I used was one I had laying around the house and it is something like 6×8.  It is a great size, but when I went to the store to try to find more, all I saw were the 5×7.  Of course, I only checked WalMart, so I will have to look at Kohls, Michaels and Hobby Lobby later on.

I liked the grouping of 5 images and a sentiment.  *whispering* I didn’t have a current SU Halloween sentiment that would fit into my square, so I used an old $1 stamp from my stash.  Do you think anyone will notice, lol???

For the 6×8 frame, the images should be 2″ squares, mounted on 2 1/4″ bases.  If you use a 5×7 frame, the images can still be 2″ squares, but don’t use base piece.  I had a picture of the 5×7 one that I made, but I hadn’t downloaded it yet, and then I lost my phone!  I used a piece of plain Pumpkin Pie cardstock cut at 5×7 to layer those images on, and it really made them pop!

Whew, I think I got it all!  Hope you like it!
