Hi there, crafty friend! With the NEW January – June Mini Catalog, our international group of demonstrators are coming together to showcase the Peaceful Poppies Suite, and trust me when I say, they are irresistible (the stamps, the projects AND the demonstrators!)
“I don’t need any more floral stamps,” I told myself when I went to OnStage last November, when Stampin’ Up! released the mini catalog to demonstrators. “I’ve got plenty, so I’m NOT going to buy any more.” Then I saw THAT COVER, and my willpower went about as far as Dorothy across the poppy field in Oz…
Today I’m sharing a photo frame project using the Peaceful Moments bundle. You can order this bundle and save 10% when you get the stamps and coordinating dies together ~OR~ you can let the poppies work their magic on you and succumb to the entire Peaceful Poppies SUITE (like yours truly).
I found this adorable wooden photo frame at Dollar Tree (only a buck!) and used the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to cover the front – I demonstrated how to do it on different frame in my Monday Lunchtime Crafting Live on my Facebook page.
The dies make these stunning layered flowers and leaves and I just couldn’t stop adding layers!
A 3/4″ strip of copper foil sheet (stamped with StazOn ink) made a perfect “name plate” for the bottom of the frame:
To create the ends of the faux plate, just stick it into your Everyday Label Punch like this:
The photo is from our trip to OntarioCanada to visit Ed & Carolyn Helder last September. I met Carolyn through Stampin’ Up! years ago and we’ve become dear friends and this was certainly one of our most enjoyable vacations OF ALL TIME! How grateful I am for the connections created through crafting. (Carolyn, if you see this, pretend to be surprised when it comes later for your birthday)
I’ll share the supply list below if you happen to pick up a frame from the dollar store, but if you are ready to pop along our blog hop, enjoy Judi’s poppy-themed project next, or back up to Brenda’s Blog.

What a great use of the Designers Series Paper. I will definitely be looking for a frame at the dollar store to make a frame..
Loni, I love the way you put it – “My willpower went about as far as Dorothy across the poppy field in Oz!” I literally laughed out loud at that, and subscribed to your blog! My first impression was “Layering flower dies! YES!” Ihad no will power at all! I love this frame. It’s a perfect use of that DSP! And I love even more that it’s a photo of a fellow demo (and Canadian) in the frame with you!
Thanks Heather! Not everyone reads the fine print, but you have proved yourself a kindred spirit!
I love your frame! I also love altering great finds. And you are so right, this suite does the hard work.
Well put: It’s a suite of products that you just can NOT mess up!
Wonderful use of the Designer Series Paper. It’s so beautiful I think I check the dollar store for a frame and try it.
Beautiful frame! Love the colors you chose!
Great project and I love your nameplate trick, too.
Isn’t crafting great to make such great friends!
Common interests are the beginnings of beautiful friendships, aren’t they, Cynthia?
I love to make different things with our products to show how versatile they are and your project is a perfect example. I love how your frame turned out!
Versatility is key and the Peaceful Poppies Suite ticks all the boxes!
Simply beautiful frame. I love the way the designer series paper transforms the frame.
