A few months back a incredibly talented CTMH consultant, Lisa Stenz, posted this beautiful display tray using the Avonlea paper line. Gorgeous, is it not? As you will see in my project, I was definitely inspired by her project. Particularly the way she didn't let the little 3x4 sections limit her...she just adhered a photo mat to the frame itself. Simple, but brilliant! I also loved the use of her title and monogram. All of which I included in my creation.
I did, however, change it up a bit, primarily with the paper pack. I chose to use the La Belle Vie papers. From there, I just let the theme of the paper pack lead me to the embellishment choices. The Artiste Cricut cartridge has some beautiful, French-inspired shapes, as well as many, many others that worked really well.
|The empty spaces and the large photo mat are reserved for my photos, which I don't have yet.|
|"Family" is only adhered along the bottom of the photo mat, allowing the 4x6 photo to slip behind the title.|
|Strategic placement of foam tape and adhesive allows for the "flowing" nature of the banners.|
|Depending on how the tulle is pulled, the tray can be hung with the bow at the top of the tray or with it at the very top, where it is hung.|
The Creative Class is scheduled for Sunday, December 2nd at 4 p.m. The project fee is $35 and includes the tray and all the necessary paper and embellishments. If you would like to create this project, email me or call me right away (or both, since I've been having some cell phone problems lately), so I can have all the necessary supplies on hand.
Until next time...
