December Customer Thank You Gift


Last night our Luv 2 Stamp Group celebrated Christmas with a Gift Exchange, dinner and special project.  I'll be blogging about that more in the coming week! 

We each brought a gift made with Stampin' Up! Supplies in the $20 range to exchange.

This what I designed and printed with My Digital Studio and framed in a triple mat frame.

Triple chalkboard frame

of course I fell in love with it and hand to print one for myself!

Chalkboard frame left
each opening is 5x7 and the frame is about 12x22

Chalkboard frame right

they are also nice in individual 5x7 frames!

Mds love life frames

So I have two questions for you ...

1. should I decorate the frames??? I can't decide if I want to leave them clean and simple or if they need some embellishements

2.  Would you like to see this as our January MDS club project?

love these & they'd be special for year round displaying in my home; I'd love to see the availability of this in pdf, so I could do the project myself; TFS, Patty, & holiday blessings, to you & your family!


WOW, I love the triple mat frame Patty! Subway Art mixed with color. I like the single frames clean, just my two cents.


This is a lovely gift and the person who received it must have felt very lucky. This would make a great January MDS Club project. I'd personally participate in this club offering. I do like both the triple mat and individual frames. As for decorating the frames, either way works. As always, a wonderful project, Patty. Thanks for sharing your awesome talent.


Beautiful. Can leave as is or a pretty sheer ribbon with a little embellie cluster would be pretty on the singles. Great project!

Very nice. I think you should leave the frames plain. Don't distract from the picture/savings. Edna


I really like the plain frames -- puts the emphasis on the inserts, which is where it should be. They are gorgeous and if I were in your neighborhood, I'd love to learn how to make them.

Christine Mitchell

I say don't embellish the frames, they are nice, and agree it highlights what is in the frame.
Yes, I would like it to be the January MDS project.
