Unusual 3D Photo Display using cardstock.

If you don't watch Sandi Genovese's video tutorials, you're missing something! She used to have her own TV show in the mid-2000's that I couldn't get enough of! She is such a multi-talented artist and educator, and so very original. She performs papercrafting miracles of all kinds. I so admire this lady!

I recently followed one of her vidoes (link below) and made the unique little "3D Photo Display" that she taught.  Here is hers:

Here's mine. Of course, I had to make it a little more "shabby" looking.

You can go to this link for the 3D Photo Display on Sandi's website where the video for this project is posted. It's so fun and easy and only uses one sheet of 8-1/2 x 11 paper and a few pieces of coordinating paper, plus whatever embellishments you want to use.

You just set the photo on a little shelf (it's not enclosed behind glass or plastic), so you can change it out easily whenever you want! Very ingenious. It would be perfect to place your child's or grandchild's school photos on. 

See the little "shelf" below right? (green).

Easily holds a 4x6 photo, set lengthwise or up and down... or would hold two smaller photos.
I used some little chipboard butterflies and buttons on the bottom, and placed a cardstock butterfly cut-out on the top left, with another chipboard "Photo Op" piece on the top left.

Sandi's signature colors are lots of red and pops of black which she usually puts some white stripes or polka dots on with her white gel pen. Love it!

I just so admire Sandi Genovese, and I've made more than one of her unique projects. You can go to her website Sandi Genovese dot com to sign up to follow her Newsletter. You'll receive a FREE project tutorial about once a week or every two weeks in your email inbox. If you want to, you can also sign up to be a Gold Member to receive more videos and tutorials.  

Sandi also has a wonderful Facebook page HERE where she posts all of her projects (and you can post  yours).

The most recent project on her website is the Waterfall Card with Tags. Just darling... and innovative.. and I want to make one very soon!  You can find it HERE.

This is not a paid Promotional post! I just love Sandi Genevese and her unique and fun projects. I have admired her for years, and just wanted to share one of her projects that I made. I'm going to be making some more in shabby pinks to match  my pink bedroom.

Check out her website and tutorials. You'll love them!  Let me know if you make anything of Sandi's. I would love to see it.
