Framed Art for College dorm - OCU Stars - - Created by Connie StewartYou’ve heard me brag about my daughter’s acceptance into Oklahoma City University.  As I prepare my heart to let her leave home, I found myself thinking about how to decorate her dorm room.

I love to create framed art.  This 8″ x 10″ frame collage was so much fun to make and Christina’s reaction was priceless!

I am addicted to making these frames!!!  You can make the words say ANYTHING – FAMILY, HOME, CREATE, LOVE, INSPIRE, SPRING.  That Typeset Alphabet die set is a must have for creating these.  I love it!  I created a really pretty one for my MAY Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild videos but I can’t show it to you yet….STUNNING is all I can say!!!

Here are a couple other frames that I have made in the past.  SO pretty!

Thanks for letting me share a little piece of fun from my stamp room!  I plan on making lots of different versions of this type of wall art.  It was just that much fun!


FREE SHIPPING  April 21 - 25, 2014 at The best deal of the year is HERE!!!!  FREE SHIPPING on any and all purchases through Friday, April 25th!!!  Wahoo!  I just placed an order myself.  I was in desperate need of some Designer Paper for an upcoming project.  It was so great to order it and not worry about that pesky shipping cost!

What to order with the FREE SHIPPING offer?  Well, today Stampin’ Up announced the list of stamps and accessories that will be leaving us for good.  It’s always hard to see some of my favorite stamps and toys be on this list BUT you still have time to get your hands on those items that have been on your wish list.

Sad to say the Typeset Alphabet dies that I used on my frames are on the list so be sure to get those now before they are gone!  Along with my favorite Silver Glimmer Paper and my Merry Minis Punch Pack.  Mr. Awesome came running out to me this morning wondering what was going on because I was at the computer screaming NO NO NO NO NO NO !!!!  I am so sad that I won’t be able to get my favorite bling paper any longer.  Guess what I bought first thing this morning?  Well, the free shipping took the sting away… a little.  😉

    WOW!! Connie, this is a lovely gift and your little girl, who’s flying the nest, will treasure for always. I love framed art, you can make it for any season or any reason and it will always look amazing.
    Thank you so much for this great idea, I think I will be CASEing it for my granddaughter Vanessa’s sweet 16th. birthday next May.

    wow this is a great idea, my son will also be going off to college, although not sure where yet. he was accepted at all 8 of the schools he appied to but has now narrowed it down to two choices. final decision time soon! I am going to try to make a masculine version of this that we can put some pictures of him with his friends from the plays and musicals he was in the past four years. A nice memory to take away to his new room.
