Valentine Photo Clip

January 31st, 2008

It’s been such a busy week!  I’ve been really missing my regular blogging.  Tomorrow night is my monthly Stampin’ Up! Technique class and I’m really excited about it.  I thought I’d share one of the projects we’ll be doing. Here’s my Valentine Photo Clip.


It’s oh so simple – just a regular black binder clip from the office supply store.  Here’s a side view.


The images from Always are embossed with Real red craft ink and clear embossing powder on shimmer white cardstock.  The designer paper is a long retired SU design.  I wouldn’t normally use a retired paper for class, but I ran across this in my stash and it just seemed too perfect.  The clip really needs a bow or knot at the top to keep it tight enough to hold a photo or card.  In class we will finish up the clip with a piece of red cardstock with punched photo corners.  To photograph this project I wanted to complete it with a picture.  I chose my very favorite photo of Curt and I taken at our rehearsal dinner the night before our wedding (over 16 years ago).  Seemed like a perfect choice for Valentines.  *grin*

I’m just finishing up with hosting a big New Catty Swap so I’ll have those pics to share very soon – stay tuned.   Hope you have a fabulous Friday!  Thanks for stopping by.
