A Quick Craft With Picture Frames

How about a super quick little craft? Anyone up for one? I know I sure was.

So here is what I did.

I bought these tiny little frames at the dollar store - two came in each package. I took the back off of the frame and removed the glass. I put that glass on some of my favorite scrapbook and traced around the shape of the glass. (Wishing there was another word for glass...sounds so redundant.) I then cut out each of my rectangles.

I used my Cricut Expression for this project but you could just as easly print out your letters onto cardstock and cut with an exacto knife. That's way too much work for me - so I lazed out and made my Cricut do all of the work. I chose to make the word 'HOME'.

And for a tiny bit of cuteness, I cut out this heart to go inside of the 'O'. And there you go. Simple and cute. Now go get crafting! :)

P.S. Another big thanks to everyone who keeps asking about Luke. The latest news I found out is listed on my last post. He started his chemo treatments last night. Please pray for his parents as they are really needing a lot of strength right now. Thank you so much ya'll. I knew I could count on you!

Pretty neat! Now , why would anybody cut these out if they had a Cricut, LOL.
I also would go with the black kitchen idea, actually I have. If you have EVER had white kitchen cupboards, you know why. My friend put in all white, and 2 years later she's grumbling at all the marks everywhere!

This is a cute idea. I am going to steal it! But I dont have a cricut and am pretty lazy, so I think I will run the designer paper through the printer first, then cut the rectangles. =D Now I just have to figure out where I am going to stick them!
