Joyeux Noel Santa Frame

With all of the gatherings soon to be happening
I thought I would make something that would work great as a hostess gift. 
I loved the idea of a special frame to keep a cherished holiday photo safe. 
So, I have made for you today a traditional Christmas picture frame. 
You can purchase everything you need for this frame at Altered Pages

The design of this frame is very organic and textural. 
I thought that worked well with image I chose from Altered Pages many collage images
I love Santa making his way through the snow covered forest. 
I can't get enough of the Glitz paper packs. As is probably evident if you have seen any of my recent posts. These papers coordinate so well and are just full of adorable images and patterns. 
Here I am using the Joyeux Noel collection. 
You can see below that I have straight cut edges, torn edges, hemp trim as well green fibers. 
With all of these elements the frame is not just pretty to look is also fun to touch. 
I guess in this case it IS okay to "look with your hands and not just your eyes."  


  1. Beautiful! Such a fabulous home decor piece Steph! xx

  2. Very sweet, such a charming Father Christmas frame.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
