Live laugh love frames with the Chomas Creations embossing kit

A friend of mind talked me into doing a craft show with her this year and I thought it was a perfect way to use up some of my stash!  And it is also that time of year (kids going back to school, yipppeee!) to get a start on handmade Christmas presents!  We started with some of these handmade frames!  I like to use Mod Podge painted on to adhere my patterned papers to the frames.  I then use eyelet screws to hold ribbon on the frames.  This 3 photo frame was my friend's idea, and the back ribbon is stapled on. 
I embossed the "live, laugh, love" using the Chomas Creations embossing kit and Make-the-Cut.  You can download that file here... live laugh love file
If you download the file you will notice the words are backwards.  That is because I put my metal sheet colored side down on my mat, so when you emboss it and flip it over, it will face the right way.  I then sanded the raised image.
I added some chipboard ovals behind my live laugh love designs to make sure they didn't get bent on the frames.  The papers and embellies are all Basic Grey's Kioshi line. 
I used the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder to add the "your photo here" sentiment to add to the frames!
