Center of Attention Product Spotlight - Frame Your Imagination Stand


woodencalendarstand(resize)

Today, Taylor & half the Baker’s Dozen Design Team are spotlighting our Frame Your Imagination Stands for you!

This wooden stand is hand-crafted, beautifully sanded, and ready to accept a coat of paint or stain in the color of your choice. The stand was designed to coordinate with the Taylored Expressions calendar inserts, but it can be used in many other ways, as we will show you today; you can display your 6x6 scrapbook layouts, recipes, or Bible verses. The stand comes with two binder rings as shown.

I ‘imagined’ making a recipe stand for my project, and am happy with how it turned out!  I printed the vertical recipe cards from the digital download section in the store onto Choice Buttercream cardstock, cut them out and adhered onto cardstock so they could be double-sided.  I prepped my stand with several coats of latte acrylic paint, measured the stand using my Tim Holtz ruler to be sure I got accurate measurements and amazingly enough, it took LESS than one sheet of 12 x 12 pattern paper to cover it!  I finished the stand off with some brown & cream polka dot ribbon which is my favorite, adhered with some sticky tape.

Here is a close up of the sides of the frame, I cut the circle out of the paper with a fingertip craft knife (this is a MUST-HAVE tool for me since you can cut with precision and great control), and a vertical slit from the top to the circle and slipped it under the frame.  Once glued down, you can’t even see the seam!  The Frame Your Imagination Stands is on sale for a limited time (July  26 - 29) for 15% off!!  So grab one for yourself to alter and either make another for a friend or send an unfinished one for her to alter! 

Before you head off to shop in the TE store, let’s go take a look at what the other ladies have to share with us using the stand:
