Celebrate USA Framed Art
Happy Memorial Day! I am very grateful to the service men and women of the United States of America. It lead me to create a framed art piece that could be displayed for Memorial Day as well as July 4th. Today’s post highlights the Celebrate USA Framed Art piece I created last month.
Create your own framed art!
One of my favorite projects to create is the Framed Art “Sampler” as many refer them as. I love making the 3″ x 3″ squares from numerous Stampin’ Up! Products. It challenges me to think outside the box and bring something to life. I have created several framed arts and just when I think I may have exhausted my options of completing one, a new theme appears.
- cut seven Basic Gray 3″ x 3″ squares
- cut one Basic Gray 3″ x 6 1/4″ rectangle
- Real Red layering piece cut 2 7/8″ x 6 1/8″
- Whisper White or Designer Series Paper layering piece is cut 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4″
- cut Whisper White 2 3/4″ x 6″ for the “Celebrate USA)
- using numerous Stampin’ Up! Product, create each square
Time to Assemble!
Once I have completed my squares, it is time to assemble. It does take some time, as I like to change out different squares making sure things balance. I also try to make each one slightly different with the positioning. The 3 banner square is on ALL of my framed art pieces. It has pretty much been placed in every spot. I use this graphic below to show you how to place your squares. Before you place them, I put a mini glue dot in the center to help keep them tacked in place before I finalize my design. Once I am happy with each of the locations, I add mini glue dots to each color to secure it in place.
Red, White and Blue!
Again, I had a lot of fun creating each square in Real Red, Night of Navy, Basic Gray or Whisper White. Several of the products featured on my framed art are retiring however, some are being carried over. Be sure to check my supply list below then head to my online store to complete your order. I truly appreciate your business as it helps me achieve my goals! I will be updating my June Events this week. Can’t wait for the new catalog to go live on June 4th. It will be here before you know it! Enjoy your day with family and friends!
