A 3D Project


When I applied to become a member of the JAI Design Team I decided to apply for both the card making team and the scrapping team.  Part of the application process for the card making team was to design a 3D, off the page item.  I decided to alter a shadow box photo frame I bought from Ikea.  I"d originally bought it to do something for my daughter's room, but it took on a life of it's own and ended up very differently to what I'd planned.

I love how it turned out, and I think it would look great in a little boy's room.  Now I just need someone to have a baby boy so I can give it to them!

I also made a card to match the frame.

Like the frame, I fussy cut one of the balloons from the DSP and popped it up on Dimensionals.

I used the hostess set Ain't Love Grand for the inside.  Here's the two projects together.

Overall, I was very pleased with how they turned out, even if they were nothing like what I had originally planned!

Stamps: Ain't Love Grand (hostess), Happiest Birthday Wishes (hostess)
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Real Red
DSP/Cardstock: Big Top Birthday DSP, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Whisper White
Other: Big Shot, Simple Letters Alpha Dies, Paper Snips, Dimensionals, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, Scalloped Ribbon Border Punch, Blender Pen

Bye for now,



  1. Your project is just adorable Tina! It would be perfect for any little boy's room. And I love the matching card too :)

  2. This is a gorgeous project, Tina and a fabulous gift for some lucky person.
