friday creative

guess i have another idea from the antique show! (can you tell i had a really, really great time there?!) so here it is, a hanging photo holder!
-wooden pants hanger (my hanger is vintage because you've probably noticed by now that i love old stuff but it's super easy to find new hangers too.)
-cardstock for backing photo (optional)

how to:
-mat/back photo on cardstock if desired (if your photo is flimsy, you might want to back it with cardstock to help it stay in the hanger).
-place photo in hanger.
-hang on the wall as desired.

happy friday!

p.s. doesn't my hubs look adorable? my studio really needed a 8x10 photo of him!

i've been wanting to share these...

these photos are from a session back in may with sara and her sweet little ones, zach & lauryn. the photos were a surprise for father's day so we had to keep them a secret for a long time, which i'm sure was hard for sara but it was hard for me too because look how beautiful these three are!
thank you again sara for inviting me into your beautiful home and tell zach thank you for teaching me so much about cars. i had a blast!

friday creative

here is the second idea from the farm chicks antique show (and really the wonderful brain of my friend tammy t), folding ruler photo holders! supplies:
-folding ruler (vintage rulers are pretty easy to find at shows & stores but you can still buy new ones too at hardware stores & online)
-cardstock for backing photo(s)

how to:
-mat/back photo(s) on cardstock (this will help your photo(s) stand up in the ruler, especially if you have a vintage ruler that has a little less tension than it used too).
-open the ruler as much as desired and place photo(s) in fold(s).
-easy right?!

does this friday creative seem suspiciously like last week's only with a ruler and not a frog? hum...i guess i really like photo holders!

have a great day everyone!

friday creative

today's friday creative is a super sweet idea from my wonderful friend tammy t! we had an awesome girls trip last weekend to the farm chicks antique show and we found lots of super cute things to turn into photo holders (because if you haven't noticed yet, i'm bored with frames). so here's the first of many ideas from the show, floral frog photo holders!
-floral frog (antique ones are pretty easy to find at shows & stores but i've peeked around online and you can still buy some cool new ones too)
-cardstock for backing photo (optional)

how to:
-mat/back photo on cardstock if desired (if your print is flimsy, you might want to back it with cardstock to help it stand up in the frog).
-place photo in frog.
-yup, that's it!

hope you're having a great day!

p.s. thanks again to the wonderful miss sara & her adorable little guy zach, who made me those sweet cupcakes!
