Go Photo Joy Wall Mount Frame

In early June I was fortunate to have ben the lucky winner of a drawing to win any one of the fantastic products from Creative Plastics Plus, and I selected the 12x12 Go Photo Joy display frame, wall mount, with white insert. I was so excited as I had been eying these wall frames (and other wonderful products) for several weeks.

This frame was exceptionally wrapped- it came in a protective plastic bag and was wrapped with 4 layers of bubble wrap bags nested snugly in a box. This baby was all set for the beating it would take as it came my way.

I didn't quite know what to expect, but this frame is sturdy and is thicker than I had envisioned. There is some give, but it's not going to break unless excessive force is applied. The side edges are smooth and nicely finished and the rounded top and bottom edges are smooth and contoured perfectly.

Along the top inside edge is a perfect little mounting notch. Again, I was pleasantly surprised with this feature as I was expecting some type of foam wall mounting to be included. I am not sure why I thought that, but this notch is so much better.

Within minutes you can have this up on your wall with virtually no work at all. Just slide your favorite layout in and viola. an instant masterpiece!
As you can see in the photo above, a white foam insert is included. I placed the layout on top of this for added stability and it slid right in. This layout has some dimension from the wooden pieces, enamel dots, twine, and layers and I had no trouble with this, in fact I still have some wiggle room if I chose to put a page with more bulk. If your project was extra bulky, you could simply remove the foam mount insert.

I decided to add some twine along the top since this is the only thing currently hanging on this wall, which is "my" scrappy space wall. I like the added touch.

I am already looking forward to purchasing several more of these. The 3 pack is a great deal.

Not a 12x12 scrapper? No problem. There is a product for 8-1/2x11. There are even products for cards and napkins. I highly encourage you to check out the website and let your creative ideas flow!
