Hey y’all…I’m so glad you are here today, because I am very excited to share this project with you! Yesterday I made my way to my local craft store. Admittedly this isn’t unusual for me. But the difference yesterday was that I didn’t go with a shopping list. I walked through the store aisle by aisle looking for inspiration.
Imagine my surprise when I reached the scrapbook paper aisle and discovered these beauties…
Scrapbook paper has changed a lot in the past few years or at least since I last checked LOL.
I immediately thought of placing these pages in frames for artwork. The pages I am showing you today are going to be used in my guest bathroom.
Other pages I will use at a later date, but trust me they are gorgeous!
This artwork is easy and cheap to create. Each 12×12 page is only .59 cents and they happened to be 50% off yesterday.
The barn wood frames I used were thrifted several months ago for $1 each. I purchased all 10 of them and have used them in various projects. The frames are 8×10 so the scrapbook paper needed to be cut down to size.
I traced out out the correct size with chalk and cut around my mark.
I found this bicycle art in the clearance section of HomeGoods. It hangs in the guest bedroom next to the window.
I was so excited that this scrapbook page practically replicates the bedroom artwork…
So, each framed piece cost me a grand total of $1.30 each! Pretty great, right? If you are in need of inspiration I highly recommend a visit to the craft store. No list, no agenda…just wander and meander down the aisles. I promise, you will be surprised at what you discover.
OH my gosh, I love that paper! I was at MIchael’s yesterday, but I didn’t even walk down the scrapbook paper aisle, and now I wish I had! I’m working on a gallery wall for our powder room and these would be perfect. Back to the store I go! 🙂
These are so pretty! I love how you gave these rustic frames a totally beachy feel with these cheery papers. love love love! Hugs, CoCo
I like how thrifty and resourceful you are. Great job.

So cool! I didn’t know they made such awesome scrapbook paper these days!
Random inspirations are so much fun at the craft store 🙂 Sounds like you had a fun ramble & turned it into such a cute project! Y’all are always coming up with fun stuff. Totally stealing this idea! Bwg ~~~
Really, really cute! And I love the price!
The best take away for me is marking them with chalk for a line to cut! How did I not ever think of that???? So smart 🙂
This is such a great idea and money saver from going and always having to buy wall art. Thanks for the idea.
