Personalize A Message Board With Colored Art!

Hello, Marylin here today sharing my latest Deflecto project. Do you own an art coloring book? Most adults that I know own at least one and enjoy bringing the art to living color as a way to beat stress and enjoy some solitude. Deflecto Crafts have a frame that is perfect for showcasing your favorite artwork. By adding some black cardstock paper, you can make it into a wet erase board to make lists and leave messages. There are many options to apply to the basic concept that I show here to make it your own!


12" x 12" Cardstock: dark pink, handwriting on white, black
Floral Color Art coloring book
colored pencils
laser cut wood shapes: bird, Home Sweet Home
paper trimmer

Remove the frame from the wrapper and make sure that the opening is on the top side of the frame. Cut the pink cardstock to fit the frame. 

Cut the printed cardstock slightly larger than the colored art print. Layer and adhere papers. Cut a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" rectangle of black cardstock. Adhere to the center of the art print. Insert into the frame.

Adhere the wood cut-outs to the frame.

Mount the frame using the hook and loop tape that is enclosed in the packaging.

I hope you got some inspiration from the blog today. I had a difficult time picking an art page because there are so many beautiful designs! There are a plethora of wood shapes and paper patterns to choose from. You can make it totally your own!

Make sure to take time to enjoy the small blessings along the way and
Live Life with a Flourish!

A Vintage Valentine

Valentine's Day projects don't always have to be red or pink. Instead, go for neutral colors and use embellishments with a vintage feel. That way, you can decorate a Deflecto Craft Frame to look like a cherished heirloom!

Using vintage and "faux vintage" odds and ends, I took a 4" X 6" Deflecto Craft Frame...

...and turned it into something that you might find in your grandma's attic!

Don't have any old photos to use? That's OK -- this one is a sticker from Tim Holtz! I thought this gentleman looked like someone from World War II, sending home a love letter to his best girl. I accented him with a mini metal frame and placed him on a small piece of canvas fabric.

Even though this project was done for Valentine's Day, the use of neutral colors makes it so that you can leave it out year-round!

Thank you for visiting!

Valentine Table Decorations

Happy Valentine's Day!
Monica here sharing my project using the 4" x 6" clear craft frame. A friend of mine wanted to have a Valentine get-together with a few friends and wanted to make some table decorations. We used the frame as a stand to hold mini photo albums.

Then we took some Hershey kisses and stuck them to the frames with some glue dots so they wouldn't leave permanent marks. Then decorated the cover of the albums.

Here is the inside of the photo albums... this makes a perfect keepsake. You can even stand the frame on its side once the album is decorated and use it as a display piece.

I hope everyone enjoyed my project and thanks so much for stopping by...

This is True Love

Who is your True Love? This little princess is my true love, and I love to have her photos on display around the house. Even though this project has a Valentine theme, it is still neutral enough that I can display it all year long. For this project, I have used the 4" x 6" Clear Craft Frame which is perfect for the smaller prints I order online.

I added a beaded stick pin to the corner of my frame. I used foam tape to give my sentiment some dimension and finished this section off with a few small flowers.

In the upper corner, I added a piece of distressed chipboard to the back of the frame, adding flowers and a small ribbon bow on top. I used a variety of paints and sprays from Tattered Angels on the chipboard piece.
