TomKat Photo Frame - Black & Cream Damask

I recently made this frame, and I think it's my favorite so far! I used a black & cream damask patterned paper, paired with a deep burgandy rose. This time, I took the paper all the way to the edges, which gives it a nice finished look. Swarovski crystals outline the outer edge, as well as the inner square around the photo. I'm so proud of a few of my readers who have been inspired to make their own! If you make one, send me a picture!

Next project.....Time to setup an Etsy shop for my invitations and frames! Any other Etsy users out there have any advice?

I love these frames! So cute! I love painting and would love to make my own painted frames. Do you mind sharing where you buy the wooden frames?

Thank you! I buy the frames at Joann Fabrics! The ones I use are 12x12.

Okay I absolutely LOVE those frames. They are gorgeous. I think you need to get selling them asap. What do you think about personalizing them, with an initial or a monogram, if the buyer wanted? Just a thought?

I think these frames are so adorable, and I love your blog! Great work on the designs, I think you'll do great on Etsy... I have been an 'Etsian' for almost a year now, and still love it! I really think we have a lot of the same passions, just let me know if you need anything or any advice!
Suggestion #1.Cute product packaging and a handwritten thank you note! Good Luck! ♥

Mere - Love the personalized idea. I bought some letter stamps, even to do a child's name on them.
Kristin - I spent quite awhile on your blog earlier today...and I think you're right, we have a lot in common! Great advice on the packaging/note! I think your labels are a great idea, and put them on my list to blog for PN about! Would you want to do a giveaway of a set of them? I will definitely be in touch re: Etsy!
