Welcome to Our April Linky Party, DT Challenge and 3D Shadow Box Frame Kits

Welcome to our April Linky Party and DT Challenge! Please check out the cool projects our Design Team Ladies have each created and we would love for you to join in our Linky Party and win a Gift Certificate!  See details at the end.

Vicki Chrisman


When I saw that Elizabeth Lincoln was using one of Vicki Chrisman's 3D Shadow Box Frames in this challenge with our printable Baby Girl Card 99 cent Download, I remembered we found some extra frames in a box of show stock and have added them to our Store.  Vicki designed these Frames as dies for AccuCut a few years ago and we helped and received a Die so are able to cut and sell them. You can also ask your local store if they have either die as they are popular.

I've always had the idea to make a cut on the inside base of one of the the frames so you could slide a figure along - like my niece who wants to be a ballerina. So many photos would be fun like a child skating or running, a couple kissing or dancing. I'm just mad that my video won't load here!  You will have to imagine Arissa dancing across the 'stage' with Otis.

DT Member Vicki Chrisman is the designer and she has a step by step Video showing how to put the frames together . There are 2 styles with a Landscape and also a Portrait Style Design shown below decorated with our Altered Fairy Scraps.

Here is another Portrait Style Vicki made with a photo of her mom as a young girl on the farm and embellished it with our Farm Scraps.

This Portrait style frame was decorated with stamps as well as our Bird and Blossom Scraps

 Vicki made this wedding Landscape Style Frame using poem from our Card Sentiments (now digital) accents from French Mail, paper is now a 99 cent download Pair of Classic Damask Blues.
Here's a link in case you missed my Free Easter Images and Healthy-Fun Easter Treats and later I found this photo I missed adding and wanted to show you these cream cheese stuffed Tulips made with a bouquet of cherry tomatoes and green onion stems.

Okay,  now its your turn to enter our April Linky Party and post any sample you have created using any of our products.  Every person will receive a $6.00 coupon and 1 lucky winner will get a $50.00 Crafty Secrets Gift Card!  You have until 12:05 PM April 17/14 to enter.
