Sneak Peek - Designed Decor

At Christmas, I'm not usually a "peeker" - I don't try to guess what my gifts are because I want the surprise on Christmas morning. I'm usually the same way about sharing new items from a yet-to-be-released Idea Book, but I couldn't wait to share this new Designed Decor item from Close To My Heart (available August 1). Mainly because it's going to be hanging in my office on Monday morning - and it's so cute!

This is one of two new Designed Decor frames. The other one is a black frame with wire "clothesline" to hang pictures, cards, or other fun things. I'll be featuring the black one in a future post. The frames are available on their own (frame only), and the Colonial White one pictured here is available as a kit which is what I used.

The kit comes with all the fun pre-cut shapes shown here as well as the frame, the mini clothespins, twine hemp, and a B-size stamp set. All you have to add is ink. I also used the new Ruby chevron ribbon, Classmate Alphabet, and one clothespin from the Wooden Mini Medleys. It came together really quickly, and I have pre-cut shapes left over! So fun!

I used pigment ink (Chocolate and Ruby) for a richer color, but dye inks would work well on the kraft cardstock, too. Head over to my website on August 1 to order your kit!


  1. Adorable!!! I can't wait to make one for myself...I mean my family, LOL. Thanks for sharing.
