Pretty Spring Decor Frame

Hi, everyone! It's Anita from The Flamingo Chronicals today to share a project with you. Springtime in Texas makes my thoughts turn to flowers and butterflies. I created this fun frame to go with my spring decor, and I have to say it is pretty versatile! I used the 4X6 Green Craft Frame from Deflecto for this project.

I added some fun dots around the outside edge using a Testors Acrylic Paint Marker - the let the frame sit overnight to dry. I found out the hard way that it takes the paint a while to dry on this surface :)

For my center section, I wanted to use a Sign Tag, but it wasn't quite large enough to cover the opening in the center of the frame. I made a double mat using cardstock, stamping the smaller layer using StazOn ink and a smaller Dyan Reaveley stamp.

The Sign Tags are a beautiful mat surface which makes them perfect for using rub ons. This is one from an older set, and I don't even remember what brand it is. Yes, I am a hoarder! For the leaves, I used a McGill punch I have had literally for years. It was one of the very first punches I bought back when I started scrapbooking!

I used lots of Prima Flowers, some buttons and embellishments, and pearls in the corners to dress the frame up. I have found that a hot glue gun works very well to adhere these on to the front of the frames.

Yes, these flowers from Prima are forever old too. Did I mention that I am a hoarder? I love these huge blooms, and I am sad that I have very few left. 

Thank you for visiting and happy crafting!

How To Use Deflecto's Interlocking Single Tilt Bin

Hello everyone!! Kymona from Kreative Kymona, here again, to show you how to use Deflecto's Interlocking Single Tilt Bin for additional storage!!

I work in a pretty tight space, and things can get lost really fast!! So, I need my go-to crafty supplies to be in one place. 

I used it to keep all of my adhesives in one place.  The clear bin allows you to see right inside, so you know exactly what you have at a quick glance. 

Here are some advantages of the Interlocking Single Tilt Bin - 4 Pack:

1. The Interlocking System - vertically or horizontally

The bins are built with grooves so that they slide into a lock position on top and on the side.

2. The Clear Bin

Your able to see right into the bin so that you can see everything inside.

3. The Wide Opening

All of the bins open nice and wide. You can see everything in the bin at one glance. They stay open when in use. 

Even with everything that's in the bin already, there is still room for more adhesives.

4. The bins can separate from the base.

Just squeeze the bin and lift it off of the track.

Super convenient to clean and refill.

5. Mount on a wall or hang on a mounting bar.

Each bin can be mounted directly on a wall or hang on a mounting bar. 

6. This storage system goes with other storage bins.

I've paired the Interlocking Single Tilt Bin with a Deflecto Stackable Cube Organizer! I store my cutting tools right next to my adhesives.  They just seem to go together.  

Sooooo, tell me what you think? Are you still looking for a way to store and organize your go-to crafty supplies? I hope I was able to help you make up your mind.

Please let me know what you think below. If you have any questions, please leave them below as well. 

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you were inspired here today.

Hello, everyone! Martha Lucia here today from Stampartpapel with a very practical and creative idea using our 4" x 6" Green Border Craft Frame to keep your die cuts safe when you are working on a special project. 
Take a look at my creative solution:

I love frames and photos but to be honest, sometimes I feel that I need to make my frames more special or practical. When I saw the Deflecto Craft Frame Green, I immediately thought that this was the perfect opportunity because it has a great size, 4"x6".  With a few elements, this can go from a simple frame to a very useful tool in my creative journey.

The first thing I did was adhere a piece of Deflecto Magnetic Craft Sheet of 4"x6" to cover the space of the photo. If you want you can cut the piece bigger because the Deflecto Magnetic Craft Sheets gives us this possibility, it's size is 8"x15", but I wanted to keep the green border. Then using my Cricut and Rainbow ducktape, I cut a pineapple to I paste over the magnet.

That's it! Now I just need to have my Magnetic Die Keeper Frame near when I am working on my cards or die cut projects to hold my die cuts. This keeps all the die cut pieces safe while I'm working, decorates my work space and is also versatile because I can change the position according to the space I have in my desk.

Let me know what do you think about this idea and if you have any question, please also leave me a comment as well.

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you were inspired here today!

See you soon!!

Deflecto For Little Storage Needs

Hello, Sue here today! When it comes to babies... It's hard to believe that someone so small can need so many things.

Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart. (A. A. Milne)

I created this Bath Time Organizer for my Daughter in Law and New Grandson using a few stickers from Pebbles Inc. “lullaby” collection and Deflecto Single Tilt Bins.

The bins are interlocking and stackable. (available as a single bin or set of four) Great for little storage needs in the nursery, craft room, garage, kitchen and even the kid’s room. Wherever you need a little extra storage. Use on table, mount direct to wall or hang on the Deflecto Mounting Bar (sold separately).

Thanks for visiting!

St. Patrick's Day Party Decor Ideas

St. Patrick's Day is up for March and green is in! I love to have a few girlfriends over for a luncheon and a holiday is always a great reason to have a gathering! Here are a couple ideas for making St. Patrick's Day special!
You will need: 

12" x 12" cardstock papers: Green, black with tiny white dots, black and white harlequin 
paper trimmer
digital St. Patrick's Day signage, 3" x 4-1/4" (download from internet & size before printing)


1. Cut the green cardstock into four 6" squares. Cut the black into 5-1/2" squares; the damask paper into 5" squares. Layer and adhere to the sides of the cube. Leave the bottom of the cube clear.

2. Apply any embellishments, rubber stamping, etc. to your liking.
3. Fill the compartments with dinnerware and napkins. Enjoy!
For the frame:

Cut the papers as shown in the photo given. Layer, adhere and place inside the frame.
Rosettes: Cut the green cardstock in strips (size depending on the width you would like your rosette to be).

Score and fold each strip. Make a circle, glue the edges together and secure by gluing a punched circle to the middle of the rosette. Repeat on the opposite side. I use hot glue for this step as it is easier. *Designer Note: You can google instructions on "how to make a paper rosette" if you could use a little help! 
Adhere your embellishments to the frame. I made the 3-D clover with punched hearts and circles. Sponge a little ink around the edges for a bit more depth to the embellishments.
Did you get some inspiration here today? I hope so! Take advantage of every opportunity to celebrate life and friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop by the blog today!

Take time to enjoy the small blessings along the way and,
Live Life with a Flourish!

St. Patrick's Day Desk Clock

Hi, crafters! Today team member Monica is sharing how she used the 4x6 Green Border Craft Frame to create a St. Patricks Day desk clock. She found a leprechaun clipart and fussy cut it out and used it as the centerpiece for the clock. You can watch the leprechaun spin around telling you the time lol!!

The clock pieces I actually kept from an old clock I had. I never seem to throw much away these days... wonder if hoarding is a problem!

I hope everyone enjoyed my post for today and thanks for stopping by!

So Very Lucky Frame

Hello, all! Lorrie here today and March is the month for green! From the green of St. Patrick's Day to the green of the grass and leaves that are popping out all over, March means seeing gorgeous shades of this color everywhere. So it was only natural that I showcase Deflecto's 4"x6" Green Craft Frame this month!

Materials needed:

Black and white felt or fabric (I used Oly*Fun fabric from Fairfield World)
glue dots
self-adhesive rhinestones (gold, yellow, or orange)
ribbon (I used rainbow ribbon, but you can also use separate ribbons in rainbow colors)
blue ink
patterned paper
alphabet stickers

How to create:

First, draw and cut a pot/kettle shape from the black fabric/felt and attach to the bottom right corner of the frame using glue dots (I find that glue dots work really well on these frames and they don't show through the fabric). Then use the self-adhesive rhinestones to create the "gold" on top of the pot/kettle.

Next, draw and cut out cloud shapes from the white fabric/felt. Use blue ink to the edge and highlight the clouds to give your project more dimension. Attach to upper left corner of the frame using glue dots.

Attach ribbon using glue dots. Run the ribbon from the clouds down to the pot of gold along the side of the frame opening.

Use patterned paper to create a background to place inside the opening of the frame. Finally, use alphabet letters to spell out the sentiment. I placed the small letters on the paper, and the larger puffy letters on the outside of the frame to give the project, even more, dimension!

This little home decor piece is super easy and will show all your family and friends that you are a lucky gal!
