Throwback Thursday... Tis the Season Holiday Altered Frame

 I altered a 14 x 14 frame that I found on a clearance rack for 7.00 dollars back in 2012 and it still one of my favorite home decor pieces that I put out every year
I love snowmen!!!!

              I placed a piece of My Minds Eye "All Bright" on the piece of cardboard to begin with.

Stamp a Stampendous Snowman on to computer paper with black ink, enlarged it to 285%.
Trace onto My Minds Eye pattern paper, fussy cut.

 I needed at least a hundred (100), YES.. a hundred (100) pine leaves for my project and what better way to do it but to find an image and cut them out with my Cameo.
 Easy Peay as they say. 
If you don't have a Cameo, you can purchase a punch from EK Success or maybe find one to use on your die cut machine or Circuit.

 I cut the leaves out of two different pieces of pattern green paper, gluing them on the snowman following the traced image lines.
 (Make sure to just place at an angle on the bottom of the leave since you want them stand up a bit)

 I added a fun piece of paper for his hat along with some gold pinecones I found at Hobby Lobby.
 Cut nose from a tree off of a piece of Bo Bunny paper and accordion fold it before placing it on his face.
 His coal eyes and buttons are Prima bling. 
Don't you love his little lacy collar? 
Add Christmas metal to his collars as well as on to the skewer that the snowflake and banner is attached to. 

Fussy cut borders from pattern paper.  
Add gemstones for the center of the flowers and a twine bow on the bird's hat.

Fussy cut the banner, add to frame. 
  The snowflake is from Tim Holtz Snowflake Die.
I hope you have favorite projects that you have kept over the years and still decorate with. 
 Hugs Pammejo
