Deflecto Frames and Ann Butler Designs Blog Hop


Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Ann Butler and Deflecto Frames Blog Hop! Thanks for stopping by. There are some awesome projects to take a look at today!

From the products Deflecto® sent us, I chose to use the 8×10 Clear Frame.  Combining the frame with some of my favorite Ann Butler Designs products was a great match!


Products I used:
Deflecto® 8″x10″  stand up frame
Ann Butler 1″ Rail Fence Stamp set by Kellycraft
Colorbox Crafter’s by Ann Butler Ink Pads in Limelight,  Aquamarine, Blueberry
Miscellaneous coordinating ribbon, cardstock, sticker, stencil, large note pad

My first thought was to make a project to use the frame standing upright. However, the more I looked at it, I thought it would work great laying down to hold a note pad. I’m always scrambling to find a piece of paper on my desk, so this will work perfectly!

1. I started with a 8×10 sheet of white cardstock. I stamped the top and bottom with a stamp in Ann Butler EZ De’s 1″ Rail Fence Set, in Limelight Crafters Ink.

2. I added coordinating ribbon on the opposite side to make a faux frame around the cardstock.

3. Using a flower stencil, I brushed a mixture of Colorbox Crafters Inks in Limelight and Aquamarine. To get a shading appearance, after stenciling one color, rotate the stencil slightly and add the second color.

4. I cut a piece of cardstock in a complimentary color to add to the top of the notepad.  Add a strip of ribbon and wrap another smaller ribbon around the entire notepad. I added another piece of this same cardstock to the bottom of the sheet. Add stickers to the top.

5. I slipped the piece inside the Deflecto Frame. Adhere the notepad to the top of the frame.

I really love the fact that if/when I decide I want a different design or color for my notepad holder that I can easily change it out. I just create a new one and slide it in the frame. Once the notepad is all gone I can replace and add another topper to it.

That’s it! Hope you enjoyed this project.
