It wasn't hard at all to decide what subject to use for my home decor project - my grand boys!! I'm proud to say that they are the cutest little guys ever! So sorry to everyone else in the world! Haha!
Just a note: I'm giving away some BLOG CANDY today so be sure to read all the way to the bottom to see what it is and how to have a chance to win it! :-)
Here is what I did:
I chose an 8x10 frame and took the back off and the glass out. I cut an 8x10 piece of chipboard and covered it with 4 6x6 squares of paper placed randomly and overlapping each other.
I chose a sweet Christmas pic of my boys and adhered it to a chipboard oval from a kit I had in my stash. I framed it with more pieces of this kit by covering each layer with coordinating paper before adhering it to the picture layer.
Here are the Cricut cuts I used:
Corner scrolls - from HERITAGE - cut at 2.29"
CHILDREN - from HERITAGE - cut at 1"
LOVE tag - from A CHILD'S YEAR - cut at 1.94"
GRAND - from BABY STEPS - cut at 2.53"
(this cut is actually GRAND ADVENTURE, but I cut off the word adventure)
I wanted the corner scrolls to blend in a little but they blended a little too much so I inked them and that seemed to help, although I don't know if you can see it very well in the pic.
I simply put all of my elements together as you see, and I love how it turned out! I have this hanging in my living room so I can see my sweet boys every day! It really is amazing what treasures can be created with a few simple elements!
Here are some close-ups of the different elements:
