So I am really into the idea of making a scrapbook page, then framing it and displaying it on the walls. My boyfriend and I recently had a portrait done as part of a family gift to his mom and I wanted to frame our copy in a special way. If you go to the link below, you can see what I did using a basicgrey background, silver mini-brads, a star punch, some textured red paper and a heritage cutout. (I haven't posted enough to post a picture.) Let me know what you think!

ooh, i really like that!  Smiley  i have a bit of a thing for basic grey at the moment.  i think you used the brads really well too! 

some pages are too cute to get hidden in an album!

looks really nice!  it is a great idea to get special pages framed- especially if the recipient isn't really into the scapbook thing.  A framed picture is always nice, and you can personalize it with the papers/add-ons.  Thanks for sharing!

Very pretty! That basic grey paper really compliments your photo. I love the idea of framed scrapbook pages or even scrapbooking directly to canvas.

When I make a layout that I just LOVE I don't want to put it in the album right away. I know its not really hiding it but, still it seems a shame that you don't get to view them unless you (or someone else) opens the book.

Hey guys K & Co makes frames that take 12x12 or 12x24 so you can either do a single or double page layout to hangon the wall. I made one for my husband for fathers day to have in his office. I t turned out really cool.
