A Name Frame


I'm taking a little break today from SAB samples. I made this name frame for the new vice principal at the school where I use to teach. I still substitute there quite frequently and I absolutely love the new VP. She's fun, quirky, and speaks her mind..kind of like me! She mentioned to some of the office staff that her office looked plain and they all had "those pretty name plaque things". I had made the entire office staff name frames a few years ago. So, today I dug out my retired Crayon Kids set and went to work. All products from Stampin' Up! except I used my Pazzles Inspiration to cut out the letters for her name but I used Stampin' Up! cardstock...there is no other in my house!
Stamp sets: Crayon Kids
Paper: Summer Picnic DSP (background paper), Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Real Red, Old Olive
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red, Old Olive
Accessories: Dimensionals
The "kids" bodies were cut to lengthen them so they could hold the letters. I really love the way this turned out and can't wait to give it to her! I haven't done a name frame class in awhile, maybe it's time for another one? I forgot how much fun these are to make!
