Hanging photo frames


I got a request to make two 6R size photo frames....first time for me to make photo frames this big....because usually it's just the small type which is the 4R photo frames.....so this request was quite a challenge for me to do.....especially since my customer wants photo frames that she can hang on the wall.

She was very interested in my earlier designs....which is the QF001 and the QF002 photo frames.....she requested that one of the design for the frames must be made in purple and pink colour combination....a first for me as well....coz I don't think I've ever done that combination for any of my quilled photo frames before. 


The 6R photo frames are about double the size of the 4R photo frames.....therefore, more quilled flowers had to be made to fill up the sides of the frames. Each frame has a plastic cover that will protect the photo...but I find that the bigger the frame the more tricky it gets in inserting the photo inside the frame.... I still prefer making smaller photo frames. Much easier to handle.

But I do like the ribbon part that is used to hang the frame.....I added some medium sized plastic beads to make sure the ribbons doesn't slip....it will stay in place always....plus it's also part of the decoration. Still got more frames to make....hopefully I'll improve more in design and function. :)

Sahabat selama-lamanya


Another request from my customer who was interested in my HB084 birthday card.....but in this case she wanted two birds instead of just one resting on the branches. The two birds symbolizes herself and her best buddy....that's why the title of this post is "Sahabat selama-lamanya" (Friends forever). She also requested to reduce the amount of branches on the card.....the HB084 card had too many on it....over crowded I guess....so she just wanted a simple one....and that's why I had to recreate the layout for this one.

The pop up cake inside the card is 99.9% the same design except for the fire on the candles, I changed it from yellow ochre to orange....I think orange is a better choice of colour hehe. The quilled birds has a small sequin flower on their heads....which was not added in my earlier design and the bird in the earlier design was a bit on the plum side ahahaha....whereas in this design, they are a lot slimmer. Actually in most of my recent card designs that has quilled birds on it, the birds are made in slimmer versions....I don't know why but I just love the slimmer versions better than the earlier designs I've made before. 

It was fun making the birds again....been awhile since I last made them. I still got more of the same design to make for other customers. So I guess, the fun continues! ;)
