You've Been Framed

Last month our little boy had his first professional photo session and it was with the lovely Natasha at New Era Photography.

I absolutely adore every photo she took and I wanted to display them as quickly as I could.

This Hanging Polaroid Photo Frame project made it possible...
I bought a £3 framed image from my local Country Baskets store, simply because I love the frame.
Using PicMonkey, I made each of my 12 images into a polaroid (see the 'Frames' section)
I printed all polaroid images on to photo paper as 'Wallet Size'
Using a knife and craft mat, I cut out each polaroid image
I removed the existing image from my frame and using drawing pins, I attached 3 pieces of twine to the frame
Finally, using small pegs/clothespins, I evenly attached each image to the twine
A perfect way to display many images in one space

Simple Greetings

I've haven't been crafting much lately as life seems to be so busy at the moment. But I had two occasions I wanted to make quick and simple cards for.

A wedding card...

I found the cake image on Google images and I simply added a few gems... 
A new baby card...
 ... using this beautiful poem

Hold him a little longer
Rock him a little more
Tell him another story
(You've only told him 4)
Let him sleep on your shoulder
Rejoice in his happy smile
He is only a little boy
For such a little while

Both cards were designed in Microsoft Word using Amatic SC font and printed on textured card.
