Insider Tips: Sass Frames

I had a few people ask about the frames in my 'all kinds of cool' layout so here's a little 'how to':

using the Sassafras 'Spring Sprig' paper from Honeycomb cut all the way around the edgesthis is what it look like once you're done (you can make it bigger, wider, longer... depending on the size of your picture or whatever you want to use it for)
cut one single frame and with scissors (or an exacto knife if you are good with it) cut out the inside

pick any pattern paper you wish to use (in this case the reverse of the frame's paper) and trace the inside of the frame with a pencil (so you can erase the lines later)

cut it out and you should end up with this
finally, use glue dots or 3D dots to adhere it to the backgroundrepeat steps 3-5 using different patterns...

and the end result is something like this


easy, right? please let me know if you have any questions.

(and coincidentally, this layout uses 3 different SC stamps... perfect for this week's challenge ;))
