Fitted Frames, Doodled – Scrapbook Page

August 11, 2015

Hi there! It’s Marsha here today and I’ve been having fun using the brand new Fitted Frames dies!

Elizabeth Craft Designs | Fitted Frames

I’m still in the Summer-crafting-mode, so I decided to take a bunch of the die-cut frames to my garden table and add doodles. Once I had doodled them all, I took them inside and created a scrapbook page:

Here are the steps to create the page:

1. Die-cut the frames out of white paper. I used 75 lb. mixed media paper.

2. Doodle on the Fitted Frames. I used a 0.3 point waterproof pigment liner to doodle with. I didn’t apply any particular method. I just doodled away, looking at the shape of each frame and then coming up with a suitable doodle.

3. Print a couple of wallet sized photos. Trim them to fit behind the frames.

4. Choose a background paper. I have a box of mono-printed scrapbook paper and I chose one of those for the base of my page.

5. Adhere a couple of empty Fitted Frames to the paper and then arrange the framed photos on top.

6. Die-cut the title from another (gelli printed) paper with the new Alphabet 2 Lower Case die. I used the Numbers & More 2 die to cut the week number.

7. Add any details, journaling and paint splatter.

I hope you love the new Fitted Frames as much as I do!

Happy die-cutting!

    Wish they were smaller for cards. I’ve never been interested in scrapbooks. But if they were card sized, they would get a lot of use.

      Scramblinrosie, they ARE sized for cards! The rectangles are a tad smaller than an A2 card (4.25″ x 5.5″) and the squares are about 4.75″ x 4.75″!!!! When Els designed this product she DEFINITELY had card making in mind – as well as all sorts of other kinds of projects. If you use a Fitted Frame around a photo and want to display it on a desk or mantel, check out the Card Stand/Easel die. (That will definitely go on a lot of wish lists!)

      Judi is right, they are PERFECT for cards!

    I can’t wait for these to be available. I have years of pictures that need to be sorted and put in albums or a scrapbook and these frames look like they will make it easy and also make a pretty presentation of my photo collection. Thanks.
