Sonia used the gorgeous Prima Marketing Montchamp Imperial Frame , Spellbinders Elegant Ovals Die and used chipboard and Graphic 45 Papers to create a functional shabby chic dresser to hold her crafty paraphernalia!


Andrea made a square frame cut-out in her cubicle-themed notebook.  She used Seth Apter’s Change a Page Spellbinders die, the Cinch machine and Dina Wakley acrylic paint.


Anna-Karin made a layered burlap canvas with a photo that she recently found of her grandmother. The frame was die cut with Tim Holtz Sizzix Ornate Frame, and layers were created with different idea-ology papers and ephemera pieces.


Barbara framed this Found Relatives portrait with Tim Holtz Idea-ology Cabinet Card Frames. To complete her project  she used Distress Oxides, Tim Holtz Sizzix Floral Texture fades and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Botanical Layers Paperie.


Cathie created her shabby chic framed project using a Tim Holtz Mini Framed Panel and created her flowers from the Tammy Tutterow Shabby Posies and Tim Holtz Small Tattered Florals die sets.


Emma painted an old embroidery hoop with various colours of Distress Paints to create a frame for her vintage style wallhanging. She added Tim Holtz’s Paper Dolls to a textured background and surrounded the beautiful image with Botanical Layers.


Kath framed two of her favourite Hipster characters using Stitched Rectangles Thinlits to create a Rogues’ Gallery Art Journal Page


Macarena decided to make her own frame out of die-cutting leftovers she never throw away. She used Royal Blood and In The Navy Infusions for the background and Magenta Oils Pastel for the Tattered Florals and Distress Inks for Spring Flowers leaves. All the project was touched with Nuvo Mousses.


Maura made a canvas with a rusty Papillon oval frame by Prima, using Finnabair’s Rust Effects Paste and Andy Skinner’s Skulldoggery and Unexplained stamp sets by Stampendous.


Meihsia was inspired to create a wall hanging using Tim Holtz Idea-ology Frame Panel, and decorated it with Kaisercraft Wooden Embellishments and Tim Holtz Stamp Random Quotes.


Sandra made a card using the Stitched Rectangle dies and the Wild Flowers dies.

Zoey had fun playing with Distress Crayons and framed her Tim Holtz Idea-ology Salvage Stickers FRENCH INDUSTRIAL TH93053 with the sewing machine

  1. All these projects are beautiful. What a great challenge! I might have to try this one!

  2. Have a question: I created a link for the challenge and if I have the apostrophe ‘ in the word It’s the link will not work and without the apostrophe it works ok.

    Was wondering if the apostrophe ‘ is a special character in a link? Anyone else have this problem?

  3. HELP please..
    … dopey me!. I’ve added wrong image to link up, not card but first image on the post, sigh didn’t realise it till hit ok button.
    If it doesn’t matter just leave it, but once I added it wouldn’t let me correct it. Some have small x next to your card so you can delete it, but couldn’t see it.
    Sorry to such a bother …the right image is obviously the window framed card.. sigh..
