Live, Laugh, Love

Good morning!  I'm really excited to show you my little project today.  I made this about a month ago and just managed to grab some photos of it.  A while back, the Silhouette Blog had this free shape of the week, which just happened to match some bedding we bought for my daughter and I had to make one of these frames for her room.  Here's a look at the whole frame -

The frame is an 8x10 with a 5x7 matte inside.  I used the free shape from Silhouette, which is the vine background, and used the negative image of it, so the vines are cut from the white card stock and then I slipped a sheet of yellow card stock behind the white.  The flowers are a 5-petal punch from EK Success and then I added a black rhinestone in the center of each flower.

Here's a detail shot of the sentiment -

I changed up the sentiment from the shape they used on the blog - I didn't have the sentiment they used, and didn't want to buy it, so I just made my own using the Silhouette Studio software that came with my Silhouette and used fonts I have on my computer.  If you are curious, the words are Bambi Bold and the heart flower is DB Cherish.  I edited the phrase so the letters overlapped somewhat and then welded the image into one cut file so I wouldn't need to glue on each letter individually.  There is a tutorial on that technique here.

I really like the way this one turned out and I have to remember to make more of these types of projects.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day.
