We would like to welcome our sponsor for this challenge, May Arts!
May Arts Ribbon was founded in the early 1980’s in Riverside, Connecticut. The original products were high-end silk flowers imported from Taiwan, which were decorated using quality ribbons. The decorative ribbons proved so popular among customers that the business gradually evolved into a dedicated ribbon wholesaler. 
As a family-owned and operated business, May Arts began a long-standing tradition of quality, affordability and exceptional customer service. We are dedicated to carrying on this same tradition by offering high quality products at competitive prices. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is always happy to answer your questions or to assist you in placing your order. 

May Arts carries a wide selection of quality ribbons to choose from; such as grosgrain, silk, satin, burlap and a variety of prints and patterns. All inventory is held in stock, so we can ship orders out right away—typically the same day.

The winner of this challenge will receive
their choice of two full spools from their new releases!!!

Altered Tin with Spring Gardens Kit with Brandi!!!!

Wednesday, April 22, 2015

Hello everyone!!!  Brandi here today with an altered tin I made using this month's fabulous "Spring Gardens Kit"!

Here's a look:

My husband gave me a hot tea tin he had and I knew it would be a perfect project (so did he!!!). I wrapped the tin with the beautiful papers, then started to embellish!
I used the trim from the kit, one of the wooden frames, a quote from last month's kit, and one of the resin butterflies for the front!

Here's a close-up of the butterfly.  I used ink from a previous kit to add a small amount of color!

I used one of the wooden Kaisercraft balloons and several of the flowers for the top!  I also used ink from past kits to add some color to the all white flowers :-)

 As you can see, I wrapped the trim around the entire tin!

 Here's a view from the top!

Well gang...  Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)

Guest Designer - Karrie Sweet!

Thursday, April 16, 2015

We are thrilled to announce another Guest Designer this week!! Karrie has been a long time supporter of Frosted Designs and we love her work! (We think you will too!) Not only is she sharing a gorgeous project, but she is also sharing the steps she took to create it!! Thanks Karrie!

After you check out her project, let her know you stopped by!  :)

Hi I’m Karrie and I am very honoured to be the guest of Frosted Designs today.  
 I want to share my recent project using some items from the Out of the Blue kit (love it!) such as 
papers from the Kaisercraft Blue Bay collection, as well as mini roses. 
I also used Tim Holtz stencils for my background that I received in other Frosted kits!  
 My good friend is getting married and I wanted to give her something for 
displaying her favourite wedding photo.   My super-talented hubby is going to be making a shadowbox type frame before we gift it.

 So sshh don’t tell her!  
Her wedding colours are black and purple, so of course that’s what I went with.
 I’ve taken some pix of some of the process, which took about 4 hours start to finish. 
Gather supplies, create a background on cardboard... 

put it like this ??
...well, play with it some more...   Fussy cut the Calla Lily deco from the invitation...
 fussy cut roses and add more layers.

I know my friend loves the beach so I think seashells are a perfect touch.   White gauze, black tissue paper, flowers,  and pearls complete the project.

 I hope you enjoyed getting the sneak peek and I sure hope she will like it!


A Spring Garden Flower Girl!

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

Hi there FD friends! Rachelle here today and I am so excited to share my project using this month's gorgeous kit~Spring Gardens. I went with a clean and simple layout project with a little punch! Let's take a look.

 "Flower Girl"

 I really enjoyed working with these beautiful products and pastel colors. I creating this project very clean and simple using the Heidi Swapp Wanderlust Collection.

More Views: 

Here you can see the floral cluster with Prima Flowers and Maya Road Butterfly Stick pins. I also added the lace pearl trim and a resin clock from a previous kit. A great tip!

Here is the journal which says:"Shanella dropped the rose petals during the wedding. Now it's picture time."

Here I applied one the Heidi Swapp Metal Arrows and several trinkets from a previous kit.

This is a close up view of the little flower girl which blends in well with the pastel paper collection. There are so many more fantastic products in this kit that I can't wait to use in my next project.

Well that's it for this post! I hope you have been inspired to pick up your beautiful kit from the Frosted Design Store. Don't forget to pick all of your scrapbooking needs at fantastic prices.

Thank you for stopping by and keep on crafting!
See Ya Soon! Huggies!!!!!

Guest Designer Stephanie!

Monday, April 13, 2015

We are so excited to introduce our Guest Designer Stephanie! She has created the cutest projects just in time for Teacher Appreciation Gifts!! Thank you Stephanie for sharing your talent with us! 

Be sure to leave Stephanie some blog love and visit her blog to see all the other amazing projects she has created! 

Hello!  My name is Stephanie Johnson and am over to moon to be a Guest Designer here at Frosted Designs!  By day, I teach Eighth Grade American History.  While I love my job dearly, I need the creative release that scrapbooking and paper art provides in order to keep my sanity. With this in mind, for this project, I was inspired by my job and decided to create projects appropriate for Teacher Appreciation Week which occurs May 4-8, 2015.  

I decided to create three Teacher Appreciation gifts appropriate for any teacher and any grade level.  Having just taught about western expansion, I became inspired by all things "cowboy" and decided to use a "western" theme for my projects.  For the first project, I created a "wanted" scrapbook photo frame to feature a class picture.  I used a picture of my students posing in front of the Supreme Court building during our annual trip to Washington DC.  For the next project, I created a "pocket" for a gift card.  I decided to make the pocket look like something a sheriff would wear in the Wild West.  My final project was a mason jar filled with trail mix.  To "westernize" this project, I cut a handkerchief into a square to cover the jar, and created a tag and attached it to the jar using jute.  The trail mix is simply a combination of M&M's, raisins, and peanuts.  Of all the projects, this one was the easiest to make.  (And probably the most appreciated by a teacher; trust me!)

I hope you enjoy looking at my projects and feel free to check out my blog at
