I’m so excited to announce that I’m on Joy’s (Obsessed with Scrapbooking) Design Team. I was so thrilled when Joy emailed me and asked if I would be on the team. I loved working with her and Melanie way back when for Christmas with the Cricut (now known as Everyday Cricut). They are two amazing crafters and share so much with us. Thank you Joy for asking me 🙂
Today I’m sharing with you my first project for the Design Team. We were asked to use the Creative Memories Traveler Cricut Cartridge.
It’s hard to see in this picture but I started out with a crackle finish on the frame using a taupe color base and a blue top coat. You can see it better in the 2nd picture.
I can’t get enough of altering picture frames and when I received the Traveler Cartidge and saw these adorable sunglasses I knew I had to do a frame with this picture of Ethan many years ago wearing my sunglasses.
I first wrapped some jute rope that I found at Michael’s in the jewelry section around the frame. I did each section of the frame separately by hot glueing it to the back of the frame and wrapping the jute around a few times.
The sunglasses are from page 22 of the manual and I cut them at 2″ on my Cricut E2.
I then cut out “Photo Op” on page 65 at 1-1/2″ and then the tag is from page 67 cut at 1-3/4″.
If you ink the edges of the cuts you don’t see the white core of the pattern paper. I used Distress Ink faded jeans
