Shabby Frame featured on Melissa Frances Blog!

Happy Saturday Everyone!

I was so excited to see my frame featured today on the Melissa Frances blog!! I absolutely adore her products. The soft feel of her papers is just to die for and is perfect for that shabby chic look! I simply can't get enough!
For this frame I used the following Melissa Frances products:
12x12 Alysha Paper (Hush a Bye Baby Boy collection)
12x12 Kaitlyn Paper (Hush a Bye Baby Boy collection)
Baby Boy stickers

The frame was distressed and painted with acrylic paints and a crackling medium. I added bits of vintage lace and a vintage dress pattern flower. You can usually punch many layers with your favorite flower punch then fluff it up a but and - VOILA!Thanks so much for looking! Please let me know if you have any questions! Check back soon for more Melissa Frances inspired designs!

And if you want to purchase this can find it here.

The little boy photo was taken by our dear friends over at m&d photography . Bop on over to see beautiful pictures for your own inspiration!



  1. How lovely! I love Melissa Frances products, but unfortunately, can't get any nearby. Are there websites that your can order kits? In the meantime, I'm checking out your Etsy site.:-)

  2. Hi Pam! I get my MF products at scrapbook stores and conventions. There are quite a few online stores that sell her items. And if you have an Ebay account - there are many there as well! Just do a search on Google for "Melissa Frances paper" and that should get you starting. Narrow down your search by clicking on the "shopping" tab that Google offers. Hope this helps!

  3. Thanks for sharing your frame with our readers. You did an excellent job on it and we were thrilled that you were willing to share it with us.
    We hope you continue to enjoy using Melissa Frances supplies on your paper craft projects!
