Picture Frame

Hellloooo! Hope your day is shaping up to be great. Here's a project I did recently using my Cricky (Cricut).
Using SCAL software, I create two files for the photo mats. One file was the background (the grey) - I just inserted a rectangle in the middle of the 8x10 paper in SCAL, so the Cricut just cut that out. I did the same thing for the patterned paper, but just made the rectangle 3/4" larger. I cut the label and the initials out with the Cricut, too. Makes for an easy, beautiful photo frame.

These make excellent gifts! Here's another tip: Black & white photos work best when you're using a busy patterned paper as the mat. See ya,
