Welcome to the Joyful Stars August Blog Hop.

For August we decided to showcase anything from the new Fall/Winter Idea Book.  It was a difficult choice because there are so many great new items.  Our 4-H Poultry Club has a silent auction to raise money at our Fair every year.  I thought the new Designed Decor Frame would be perfect.  I wanted to keep it fairly generic so I held off on stamping sentiments on the photo frames but added a note to let everyone I would gladly customize it for their family.

I loved working on this project because it is a very high quality product.  The frame is beautiful, sturdy, and has perfectly mitered corners.  The chicken wire is a single insert that is on a wire frame with nice clean edges and it can easily be removed if you want to place fabric or paper between the frame and the chicken wire.

I used the Artiste Cartridge to create the coop with the nesting box.
