Making our own Polaroid frames

Well i don't know if you are anything like me and just love all the Polaroid stamps out there, i myself have 2 different ones that i use ALOT

The first one can be seen in this layout here
and the second one i used on this layout here
As soon as i saw the sketch for this month i new i was going to dig one of the baby's out
So i got my stamps out and was looking out some paper to stamp them on, i love the look of patterned paper as the Polaroid background rather than plain. I dug into a kit i was working with and came across 2 little squares that were 3x3 so i thought hey i will just make my own and use up my scraps at the same time. I cut my pictures down to 2.25x2.25 as i wanted a good border round them to give the effect of a real Polaroid. Once i stuck the pictures down i went round them with my journal pen then i inked the edges of the patterned paper. I really love them and think they look as if they have been stamped.

And if you remember my last post this is not identical to the sketch, i rotated it to make it fit my papers
Hope you like my unstamped Polaroids and hope you try it out yourself, it really makes a change from plain old matting.

See you soon
Caz :)
