Love Knots Funky Fridge Magnet Frame

By Taheerah | 30th March 2013 | 11 Comments

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!

Today I’m returning to one of my all-time Gel-à-Tins favourite sets – Love Knots!

I created a photo frame with this set last year, but today wanted to give it another modern twist and create a magnetic frame with some on-trend colours:

Fun right?! And really simple to create!

I started by die cutting the Polaroid frame from Vintage Cream cardstock using the Fabulous Frames die and stamping Love Knots on it with Versamark ink. I then heat embossed it with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder. Such a stunning effect!!

Gold, coral and black is such an on-trend colour combo right now, and I wanted to recreate that so I took a fine paintbrush and selectively coloured some areas of the frame with A:Muse Burano and Versafine Onyx Black inks. So simple and gives such a funky finish!

I finished up by backing my frame with a few layers of coaster board, taking care to trim a gap in the middle layer to accept a photo. I added some self adhesive magnetic sheet to the back and voilà – a funky fridge magnet frame, customisable with your own photo!

Well, I have a *lot* of special crafting coming up over the weekend, but for now I’m having a bit of a lazy day! I’ll definitely be back to share something else tomorrow though, so I hope to see you then! Thank you so much for stopping by – I would love it if you left some love before you went on your way!

  1. EGADS! This is SO amazing!!! Love it to pieces. The Polaroid, the heart woodgrain, the gold embossing (which is the strangest thing how much I am in love with this trend now), the melon, AND that it's a magnet … make it stop!! So sad there is no challenge here … a total winner.

  2. You are always so up to date with the latest trends T & yet again, your originality impresses me….Ive said it before but I could do with learning a thing or two from you 🙂 xxx

  3. So fun & clever. The gold and orange & cream are hot together… I think it's the tiny touch of black you added really makes it. You are such an amazing artist! P.S. Adorable photo too. 🙂

  4. This is fan-friggin'-tastic! Love the fun color combo (even though I'm not a huge fan of gold) and the wonderful make your own magnets! Too fun and fabulous!
