Navigation Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Navigation blog hop! If you've arrived here fro Deb's blog you're in the right spot.  If you'd like to start from the beginning to see what Karen has created, please start at Club Scrap.

I was walking the aisle of my favorite thrift store here in Sacramento and came across this cute $3 frame. What caught my eye is the amount of "real estate" on the lower half. Boy, I could really decorate that with some goodies from my scrapbook stash.  I then remembered that I just had some photos printed out from our cruise in October and ta-da...a project began to emerge.


I started out by placing the frame near the center of a 12x12 Navigation print. I wanted the wheel on the print to be on the frame section so it is off center a bit. Drew lines where the opening was and cut out the center leaving a large margin to wrap the inside window. Using bookbinding glue I adhered the paper to the front of the frame and began wrapping.


I used a piece of brown cardstock 1/4 inch smaller than the frame with the back photo panel cut out to make the back neat, finished and still able to change out photos.


I added some embellishments and ribbon from the Navigation kit, some hemp string and burlap. I totally fell in love with the anchor charm and glass dome.


The frame now sits on my desk under the large wall map that has pins from our travels. 


Thank you for hopping by. May your New Year be healthy and happy! Your next stop is Cathy.
