Mad-Made: 3 Frames for 3 Friends

As you know, I've recently been very addicted to scrapbooking and have been giving my creations away as presents. After stumbling on some very cool frames in Daiso, I thought I'd create 3 different LOs for my three very good friends =)

As usual, I always start by laying out all my materials on my bed so that I can have a bird's eye view of 'what goes with what'.

Laying out all my materials

Once I've got a rough idea of the design, which may take ages sometimes, I'll put everything together.

As the frames are smaller than the border (which I got from Art Republic), I cut it into three pieces to fit the frames (shown below).

Cutting the border to fit the frame

I got the background paper from Popular Bookstore at Clementi Mall, where I was delighted to find scrapbooking materials that I could get at 10% discount as a Popular member!

For Frame #1, I stuck a cut-out photo of PH, me and baby girl, added letters (from Papermarket), stickers (from Spotlight), some journaling at the top..

Frame #1 a strip of blue polka dot paper at the side of the frame.

For Frame #2, I decided to go with a landscape layout..

..with the photo in the center as well as a photo border (from Art Republic), lettering (from Papermarket), various stickers (from Spotlight) and felt leaves (from Daiso) surrounding it.

For Frame #3, I decided to add a polaroid photo of DH and me..

Frame #3 photo borders and flower felt (from Daiso), various stickers (from Spotlight) and some journaling on a heart I cut out of black paper.

And viola! I hope you girls love them as much as I do! =)
