Frames is the theme for the Krazy Crafting Crew’s Blog Hop!


Welcome to our “All about Frames” Blog Hop Brought to you by our Krazy Crafting Crew.

We are an independent hop team that enjoys sharing our work with everyone and hope to inspire you with new ideas for you own creativity. We are a team who loves to do all different themes, such as cards, layouts, 3D projects and so much more. We do all the paper crafting from traditional to digital. Mostly traditional, every now and then there may be a little mixed media too!

Now for a little fun! Here is my project I have made for today’s hop, it is a collage frame filled with scrapbook papers and elements.  One of my famous things I am known for, even though I have slowed down on them.



It has been awhile since I made this frame, to be exact last July.  Waiting for the perfect time to show it!  The downfall is I can’t remember the paper stack I bought to do it with!  I just bought a 6×6 stack and some elements, I probably used a couple outside elements like the girl and the Polaroid frame, but other than that everything came coordinating!  I LOVE my frame!

Here are a few close-ups for you!

So for today’s hop, this is what I made for my project


“Little Pieces of Me”

I decided to take pieces of some of my favorite scraps over the years and put them in a frame.  I cut the mat with poster board, ruler and craft knife, I think the ruler is about 2 inches thick so that is the thickness of the border.  Then just started adding papers, digging through my left over cut stash of cuts and ribbon and bling.  I don’t buy alot of embelishments so I didn’t have anything to put on there.  I am just a simple scrapper.

I think I will doodle on the mat, that would be neat!

Jessi – My Life in Arts and Crafts

So for my project today, my frames have been very popular I thought I would redo them AGAIN, and I do apologize you can’t see the little ones well but I have done the Spring Theme.

      Oh how lucky I am,
      getting to show the world my cluttery space!

I used the DCWV Flower Shower stack to decorate the frames, the vinyl project was already there.  I have a huge hole in my wall from some electrical thing where the top frame is on the left.  NOONE hangs pics that high, so I had to get creative and figure out a way to cover it.   Some day it will come to me and be more tactful.  If you have any ideas I would LOVE to hear them from my awesome crafty friends!

I will have more for you tomorrow.  I am giving out a Facebook timeline custom-made banner, or a digital layout put together by me or a blog button if you need one.  One of those is for you to choose from if you win the blog candy!  My only requirements is that you comment on my project, letting me know what I could have done better or how wonderful it is, I need a good critique…. and that you become a follower by email if you are not already!  You can sign up at the top right, where you just add in your email address so I can count up all my comments and followers.  If you have trouble you can use the kontactr button to email me and let me know so I can add you in, I really don’t want anyone to miss out!  All the host in the hop have their own rules for winners so don’t forget to read them all.  It would be so much easier to have google friend connect, but wordpress doesn’t allow JavaScript so email is my only option, I do apologize.  Well at least I won’t bother you too much, I only post a few times a month!

So… onto your next stop with Card Monkey, she ALWAYs has awesome inspiration!  Along with the rest of the team!

Have a wonderful weekend and don’t forget to enter for the blog candy!

P.S. I hope you have enjoyed my new blog layout.  I hated the other and didn’t know how to customize it to my graphics, I finally found a way, now I am loud and proud because it is MY design.  It’s a little pink but I will play with it now that I know how.


Getting ready for an new look for the New Year!

Yes, I have been busy this holiday season, so busy less time to post the crafts. I have made so many of these for gifts and for my home. I just love them! Here is a home decor piece I just love, this has to be one of my favorite projects of the year.

On the Cricut message board there was a thread that seemed to favor the DCWV Black Currant stack so I thought I would check it out. Oh what a great stack this has been. I gave this one out as a gift while I made these for my self….


I am imbarrassed to say but i don’t remember the fonts and all. I believe I made them in DS mixed in with a little of the Wall Decor and Home Decor Cartridges.

Those are on the wall now. I had bought 4. We were having people over on Christmas eve and no pictures ready for the frames so I took out my DCWV Winter Wonder mat stack and decorated this… as soon as I get my snow friends cart, guess what will be going in there! Oh yes… I will show pics!

Have a wonderful day. If you like my work, please leave a comment so I know. I love comments it makes it all worth posting!
