ASK Frames Information

Thank you Susan for leaving a comment and the size on the ASK frames. Sometimes I get so into my posting that I forget some details. And it is impossible to reply to comments. Blogger does not offer that option.

Susan was the lady I got the frame from. She also has a blog, Created With Love by Susan. Hop on over to her blog and see her fabulous creations. She's a wonderful stamper, you won't be disappointed!!! She's got a few things on there that have REALLY caught my eye and I may just have to CASE (Copy And Study Everything) them!!!

For the measurements, I used size 16 font on my computer and I cut the pieces out after I printed them. They measure 2-1/2" x 3-1/8". That was the hardest part for me, to get the pieces cut out right. SO I would recommend you print them out on copier paper and then work on cutting them out. I set up my word processing program to make 3 columns and I did one letter/wording in each column. And I got 3 sets per page.

Cut a piece of copier paper 2-1/2" x 3-1/8" and lay it over the words to see where they line up. Then trace around the words and using a paper cutter for straight lines, cut it out. It's the easiest way to do it until you get the three done and then if you are making more you can lay your finished ones on the next set and trace the lines for cutting. It's always that first one that takes the longest amount of time.

Here are the words:
A- Ask and it shall be given to you.
S- Seek and you shall find
K- Knock and it shall be opened to you. Luke 11:9

The font I used is called "Dolphin." I'm not sure if it's one that comes with your computer or not but you can find a lot of these fonts for free on the Internet by going to and doing a search for a particular font.

The frame itself measures 14" x 7" and you can get them anywhere that sells frames. From your local drug store to the larger department stores. Just look for the 14" x 7" measurements. Mine had a double mat in it that I took out. At first I was fooled by it and was having trouble finding the frame but after realizing I didn't need the mat, just the size I was set!!! I cut my 12" x 12" decorative paper 2" x 12" and 3" x 12". You may need to trim it depending on the size of the opening in your frame. Remember to ALWAYS measure twice cut once!!! You can get two frames from one piece of 12" x 12" decorative paper. And what I LOVE about the Stampin' Up! decorative papers is that you pick one sheet and you will probably use the back of it as your second design in this project. They did such a great job pairing up the papers!!!

Ok, I hope I didn't miss anything. If I did please email me, I can't reply to your comments, sorry.

Have a fun day!

Oh, one more thing. Next week will be devoted mostly to Halloween. There will be more projects than cards so stay tuned!!!
