Framed Plexiglass Photos

The 1st one above is from a kit from Scarlet Lime. I pretty much made it the way it was pictured. It's a little messed up because I had a couple of problems with the adhesive I used to hold the frame to the plexiglass. Also, the plexiglass was not cut much larger than the frame so that contributed to my adhesive mess. Anyway, this is a school photo of my daughter, Amanda, from a few years ago. I really liked the concept so I had my husband buy me plexiglass at Lowe's, but cut it a little bit bigger :) - and I made one of my son, Erik, and a third one of our family (this is a picture of all of us in front of our little Christmas tree Dec 2008). I started with some small cuts of paper, layered towards the bottom, then added the photo, rub ons and gems. The first 2 have stickers and the last one has a big flower. There's a button on Amanda's in the upper right corner. I have them displayed together on easels. I really think they turned out kinda cool.

Plexiglass pictures and Thank you cards

First, let me apologize for the bad pictures. I was about to leave when I realized I didn't take picture of these and I wanted to so I plopped them on my kitchen table. I organized a Christmas in July crop for a group I am in, Berks County Scrappers. I have one is January and one in July. I have a couple of vendors, gifts for everyone, games and prizes. I like to make a little something for the vendors since I appreciate them coming out and setting up and all their work involved with that. The top one was for Melinda from Bottom left one was for Beth from, and the bottom right one was for Denise who is a CTMH consultant. I think it's hard to tell, but the background piece is plexiglass. One of the kits from Scarlet Lime had plexiglass and I loved working on it so I came up with these little pieces with the leftover pieces from other things I made (post on those to follow). Anyway, all the diecut pieces are from K&Co., the letters are Maya Road, sprayed with their mist, and lastly I added gems. My idea is to set them up on little easels. Melinda said you could add it to the front of an album.
For the thank you cards, the green scallop cards are from Stampin Up! and the owl stamps & branch are Craft Affair by Hampton Arts, the thank you is from CTMH as is the ink.
