Altered Frame + GIVEAWAY

Hello everyone!! It's Angela Ploegman a little sad, that it's my last post over here at SEI...but hopeful that my new friends will come visit me at my regular blogging home at Angela Ploegman Designs...

I any case, I definitely saved the best for last...here's the altered Inspirational frame I created with more SEI Couture papers!


This foiled, embossed chiffon paper was my absolute FAVORITE in the entire collection...it's so elegant and detailed and the gentle gradient of color from one side to the other was INSPIRING!...so I created an altered frame to hold inspirational quotes that I could easily change out when the need arose. The quote is printed on some of the patterned paper in the collection and embellished top and bottom with a bit of the shawl die cut lace paper. The Black Licorice Puffy Stickers are actually placed ON TOP of the glass, so they will always be there, even when I switch out the quote.


I have a new found love for crepe paper...the silver flower detail was formed from crepe paper that was punched on the outside edge with a scalloped border punch. I was then bunched and folded while adhering down to a punched circle base. Then it was embellished with some black bunched tulle, a silver flower and pearl gem. The purple embossed butterfly embellishment was double stacked on foam tape and finished with another couple of pearl gems...love the dimension this created on the butterfly.

Toodles all! It's been a blast this week, blogging for SEI!!

Aside from the wonerful recipes, I really appreciated the "I Have a Son" layout. The colors really drew me in and the great tip on using leftover paper strips to make the flower was bonus! Thanks for a fun and educational week at SEI.

Its really hard to pick one day from this week. I guess today because it has the giveaway, but I just LOVED Angela's mix of recipes with crafting. I'm going to try both recipes because they looked fabulous.

I LOVE Angela's frame! The soft color palette and embellishments are just gorgeous! Thanks for the inspiration!

My favorite project of Angela's is this frame as it really struck a cord with me, especially today. My daughter has been going through a really tough time at school with a particular person and the saying on this frame fit perfectly! Plus, its beautiful!

Monika Wright said...

I think the altered box was my fave. Well, that and the flower made with the foiled crepe paper!

I loved the re-purposed pencil box and reminded me that I had one tucked away in my 'rainy day' project drawer. It is now front and center and I'm appreciating how thrifty I am! HA Thanks for sharing your recipes too Angela.

Love the pencil box! It has been a great week, thanks!

glenda said...

My favorite post is "I have a son". I also have a 7 year old boy and have found it more difficult to make pages that aren't so babyish. I will most definitely follow you on your blog and look forward to news from your lil monster.

YMCA said...

I loved the covered box what a clever idea!

Summer Braxton said...

Angela's pencil box was inspiring. I have something similar that I can alter.

I love the frame made with the Couture papers!! Angela work is stunning!!!

Kim M said...

Maybe it is me being on a diet but I loved her post of her rice recipe.

M said...

Wow, great posts! I don't cook but saved the recipes for hubby who does! Altered frame, followed closely on its heels by the Son LO, would be my fav projects. However, the box really inspired me since I can't seem to throw out anything usable and better get busy trying some of those!

Elizabeth said...

I think the frame that angela created is just gorgeous and I most likely will be attempting to recreate it to give as a gift, sometime in the future

I liked the I have a son page. As a mom of a DS I love seeing examples of boy pages and those little black paper curls are so cute. What a great idea!

Janell said...

The pencil box is cute, and the recipes sound good, but I think my favorite is the frame. It's darling. I especially like the flower and butterfly and the rhinestones around the frame make a nice touch. It's pretty.
