The 7th Day of Christmas!

Okay, we're back! Hope everyone had a great weekend...here's today's project!













"Hanging Frames" by Talia Audenart

Every year I always make an ornament with a recent picture on it for our tree. These were so fun and easy to make, and as always, great for gifts, too! Like I said in the video, using coordinating elements just takes the guess-work out of everything and really speeds the process along. My kids love these (as you can maybe see by the pictures....their little fingers have been all over 'em). I think it will be fun to go through all their "picture ornaments" every year as we set up the tree...just a fun little tradition!


And here is today's giveaway...




You can't go wrong with American Crafts chipboard alphabets and these Prima Christmas flowers and accents are gorgeous. Post a comment so you have a chance to win!




And Saturday's winner is:

Love those frames, Talia! So cute! Love all of that Love, Elsie! I love your room, too! I wanted that HUGE calendar, but before I could order one they were all sold out and I can't find it anywhere! Thanks so much for the great ideas! Love your voice! ;) Oh, and love seeing you and your hubby on the front of Simple Scrapbooks! ;)

Such a great idea! Would be a great tradition to start...and then ten years from now being able to look back at Christmas' past. Thanks for the idea!

Tamara Loewen said...

I did have the tradition of buying/making a new ornament every year, but I have to say I LOVE the idea of each year's ornaments being a photo! I'm definitely gonna have to copy that one! Love the cute frames too, I need to do some supply shopping!

I always get a new photo ornament of the kids each year....this year I made them, usually I got those engraveable ones at walmart....I like my homemede frames ones better.I don't think I'll get any more walmart ones :)

Kayli said...

Very cute!

~Kim said...

Excellent idea Talia. I started decorating all of my trees (I have 10 in the house) and there are a few holes that I need to find something for. This will work great! If it weren't icy out, I would go to my LSS right now....I wonder if they will deliver?? : )

LOVE your scrapbooking room...can we see some more pictures of that? PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE!
