Day 7 Of My 'Just One' Stamp Set Challenge

Welcome all to Day 7 of my 'just one' stamp set challenge where I have been using 'just one' stamp set, as the name suggests lol, to create a different project every day.   I have challenged myself with this in celebration of Stampin' Up!'s annual Sale-A-Bration, which runs from 6th January through to 31st March.

Also if you sign up to become a demonstrator you will receive £130 worth of goods OF YOUR CHOICE for only £99 PLUS the pick of TWO FREE kits of your own choice. This opportunity only runs during SAB so why not click on the tabs above, check out the products and open up a whole new world of crafting to you using these top quality amazing products. 

Ok, back to my final day of this challenge and one of my favourites. 

I have made a photo frame using Designer Series Paper from the Spring/summer catalogue and black card.  Then I used Versamark and gold embossing powder with the 'Best Day Ever' stamp raised on foam dots to create layering and texture. The frame and mini note paper I cut out using my Sizzix Eclips machine. 

Here is a picture of the background adhered to a cut piece of poster board slightly shorter than the dimensions of the frame. 

Here is a picture of it now adhered to the frame. I adhered all the sides but you can chose to only adhere 3 sides leaving the top unglued to enable a photo to be placed in behind. 

This is a side view. I made a paper hinge and adhered this to a long thin piece of poster board to create the stand. I then used a piece of gold ribbon and adhered to the back of both the frame and stand using a glue dot. 

Here is a picture of the front before its all adhered. 

This is a much larger frame I have made. Here I only glued 3 sides leaving the top open and this allows you to change out the background.   I have used one of the filler cards from the Love Story Project Life set from Stampin' Up!

Here are the two frames together.  I love how these have turned out. Simple but elegant and a wonderful way to bring inexpensive home decor to any room in your home. 



  1. I've really enjoyed this series - you certainly rose to the 7 day challenge with lots of great ideas for this stamp set. Good job!
