Crazy Crafters Occasions Catalogue February Blog Hop

Thank you for joining The Crazy Crafters team for our monthly blog hop.  The theme for the February Blog Hop is the Occasions Catalogue, chosen by our Host & gorgeous Leader, Kylie Bertucci.   We hope you enjoy our virtual hop where you will learn great techniques for your paper crafting projects.

This is the first stop on the blog hop.  The Crazy Crafters team has many very talented crafters and I hope you enjoy all the beautiful cards and projects.  The full blog hop line up is at the bottom of this post. 

My Project for the hop is Fresh Prints Framed Art Squared.  I adore the Coastal Cabana, Real Red & Crumb Cake colour scheme in the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack and thought I would do something a little different for this hop and make a Framed Art piece.

The 25cm x 25cm Framed Art design features 25 decorated 1 3/8" squares using a mix of NEW products from the Occasions & Sale-a-bration Catalogues and current products from the Idea Book & Catalogue.  Some of the squares have been raised with dimensionals to add a 3D look to the Framed Art piece.

This frame has certainly brightened my crafting space and I will be offering a class to make a smaller frame with 12 squares later this month.  If you live near Keilor Downs (3038), pls leave me a comment and I will be in contact with you soon.  For those wanting to make a smaller frame, but cannot attend a class, I will put together a Kit for you to purchase at the end of the month.

N.B: The glass has been removed from the frame to photograph.
The glass sits in the front giving a box frame look to the Framed Art piece.

Here's a closer look at each of the rows...

Quite a number of Stampin' Up! products were used in the Fresh Prints Framed Art piece.  The following are those from the 2014 Occasions Catalogue. 

Designer Series Paper Stack - Fresh Prints (132996) 

Stamp Set - Petite Petals (Wood 133152, Clear 133155)
Tools - Petite Petals Punch (133322) & Scalloped Tag Topper Punch (133324)
