Décor Elements Framed Photo

This week I experimented with our line of Décor Elements. I had the idea in mind since I saw Brent Steele make his framed project at convention. I decided to buy a Simply Scrappin' kit -- Summer Home, the small "Happiness" element in chocolate (only $4.95!) and then bought an 11" x 14" float frame at the craft store to assemble it all. The smallest Décor Element is 12.5" in legnth which helped me decide the size of the frame. I used an 8" x 10" family photo and a textured kewi kiss cs 8.5" x 10.5", and the patterend red paper from the kit 9.5" x 11.5". I simply scalloped the bottom edge of the red paper with the scallop edge punch and adhered all the layers together. I used some mini glue dots to attach this to the bottom glass part and then applied some of the card stock stickers from the scrappin kit. Lastly, I applied the Décor Element to the front of the glass. Here is a link to a helpful video that Stampin' Up made for customers who bought this line of product.
