Photo Boards

I wish I could claim this cute idea as my own, but I like to give credit where credit is due, I found the idea on the blog of the very talented Makeesha Byl, and I thought they were such a good idea that I just had to try it out.  These would be wonderful gifts and are really quick and easy to make.  Plus you can change the photo any time you like. I have used a magnetic clip at the top of mine so that it can go on the fridge or a metal strip, or you can put a backing on to it so that it will stand up.  And because they are so quick and easy to make, why not do a couple of different ones?  With so many different gorgeous Designer Series Papers available, plus new ones coming in the new catalogue in April, you can easily find colours and designs to fit your decor.

I am running a class on Wed 1st April at 7.30pm where I will show you just how easy they are to make, so check the details out on my Upcoming Events page and book in soon so that you don’t miss out.

This first photo is of my sister Lesley, holding my son Jamie when he was only a day or so old.

Then, same photo board, different photo…… this photo is of one of our beloved cats, Scat.
