Gregory in Circles!!

Hello all!! I've mentioned several times about a wonderful stampin group I am part of, called Utah Divas International. For awhile now I have been one of the blog coordinators and I post a project, either one of mine or one of the other members, every Friday. Well, Max (she's the founder) sent an email out in October and stated she wanted to give the blog coordinators a gift! Of course that meant stamping goodies and mine was the clear circle Big Shot die. Thank you again Max!!

Well, in keeping with the theme for the GCA this week, and not to mention the season, I created this hanging picture display. I'm not sure if I want to keep this for myself or give it to my mom for Christmas!! I think I will make another with pics of Cameron and Malaki and put one of Greg in there at about the same age.

The chocolate chip circles were cut out with the clear circle die and the rest of the circles were cut with the Circle Scissors plus. I also cut out circles from the thin cardboard backing that comes with our dsp packs. That helps gives the "frames" some substance and hopefully not warp or anything.

This is the perfect type of project to use the wide twill tape for. It is attached to the back of the circles with sticky strip and then I put a white 5/16" circle brad to each of the circles. The bottom of the twill tape was frayed by simply pulling one of the loose threads. I love doing this to the twill tape.

There is NO stamping involved in this project at all!! Can you believe it??? I used the Tall Tales dsp and cut out the various animals I wanted from the dsp.

This was fun to make and I hope I have given you some inspiration to create a unique gift for someone you love.

Happy Stamping!!!
