Video Tutorial: faux paper frame

I'm slowly but surely trying to update my much-neglected blog.  I still have dozens of projects from last year that I haven't posted here yet.  Here's a layout I created for Creating Keepsakes magazine using Jolee's Boutique French General line of embellishments :

As seen in the January/February 2013 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine.  Copyright Creative Crafts Group. Posted with prior permission from the publisher. 

It looks kind of like the page is in a real wood frame, right?  Nope!  I made the frame out of cardstock.  It has dimension, but it's flat enough to fit inside a page protector.  If you'd like to try this technique, check out this video tutorial that I created for CK:  Faux Frame Tutorial YouTube

Here's the direct YouTube link:

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Stacy!

My name is Kasey Barber and I am the new social media specialist for Tombow.

I was recently looking through Creative Keepsakes January/ February 2013 edition.
I noticed on your “My Gifts” creation that you mentioned Tombow as an adhesive you used.

If you could please send me your contact information,
We would love to send you some goodies as a way of saying thank you for choosing Tombow as your adhesive!

I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!

Hey Stacy, great to see you back on blog-land!
As frame maker I love this idea and will use it with wood-structure design paper.
As soon as it is done, I will show you.
Thanks for the inspiration and wish you a late, but still HAPPY NEW YEAR!
