OSAT Blog Hop - Tic Tac Toe

Good Morning, Stampers!

We have a fun twist to this month's One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop - we are playing Tic Tac Toe while we create! The idea is to choose (3) squares in a Tic Tac Toe pattern and incorporate those elements into your project. Phew!  I've never done that  - what fun it was! 


I chose Twine, Dies and Glitter for mine and created 
a card and gift ensemble. 


The frame was a plain metal frame that I covered with 
polka dot designer paper and stamped directly on top.
The twine and die cut banners were added along the top to 
allow space to add a photo. The hearts were die cut from
red glimmer paper and magnet and then adhered together.
They can either be used to hold a photo or message,
or can just be used for decoration. 


I brought the same elements to the card and created a
simple tag card using the large banner die.
Again, it was stamped and decorated to
coordinate with the frame. A great gift for a special friend!
