Both of my daughters are grown now and have their own offices, so I am all about making beautiful things for their workspace. Taking simple things and adding Joy embroidered letters to them is a wonderful way to create personal projects for those we love. This embellished heart frame is just the ticket to sit on a shelf and look pretty. Even though it is love-themed, it doesn't scream "Valentines Day," so it can stay out all year long.
I used white letters in the bottom corner of the frame. I like to add doodles to my projects. For this one I used coordinating X's and O's around the edge of the background paper to tie into the Joy letters.
I added a heart woodcut from chalkboard cardstock and piled lots of pretties on it. Who doesn't love sparkles and flowers? The woodcut, heart paperclip, and large rhinestone are all from Maya Road. Everything else is from my stash (which indicates I have too much stuff, I am pretty sure!).
