June 20 - Clear Album Page Fridge Frame

You may have seen something like this I have made before (but not on this blog!) but I come from a house with a husband whose HUGE pet peeve is "Fridge Clutter". OK, well - ANY clutter, not just on the fridge, but you get my drift. So if I want to put something on the fridge I can't just slap a picture up there with a magnet - OH NO. I've got to make it look good. Non-cluttery. (Is that a word? I think not!)

So I have 3 "frames" on there made from leftover clear album pages. When you make a clear album do you always use all of the pages? I don't! So if you don't have any extra pages just think next time you make one to just leave a page out and make a fridge frame out of it! :) OR - I happen to know that Two Peas in a Bucket is going to be selling just the pages here in the next few weeks so you can now build your own clear albums which would give you enough to make Christmas presents for the grandparents!

This frame -->
is one that I made for the craft show I did last weekend. You can just clip whatever 4x6 photo you want onto it so you can change it out as often as you want!

Clear Album Page Fridge Frame

  • Clear Album Page (Pageframe Designs)
  • Clear Heart (Pageframe Designs)
  • White Pen (Signo, Stampin' Up!)
  • Clip (Making Memories)
  • Patterned Paper (Fancy Pants Designs)
  • Rub-on (My Minds Eye)
  • Ribbon (Couture Scrapbooking)
  • Magnet strips (any craft store)
1 - Cut your patterned paper strip to fit on the page and apply your rub-on to it. Adhere it to the clear page at an angle.
2 - Cut your ribbon to fit across the bottom of the title strip and adhere it with super tape.
3 - Decorate your clear flower and adhere that on the page as well.
4 - Turn the page over and add two magnet strips towards the top and bottom of the page that will be covered by the title strip and the photo you will be clipping on in the next step.
5 - Clip on your photo and hang it on your fridge!

Like the title says, this frame (and the photo) is beautiful!! Silly Chad...he is the opposite of Jason in the clutter department. He could care less!
