I bought the Fancy Frames cartridge a few weeks ago when it was on sale for $19.99 at Joann's! I think this is one of what Cricut calls their project cartridges. My nephew's birthday is next week, and this picture of us was taken a few years back. I've always liked it. I thought he might like it too, so I made this frame to put it in.
You cut the frame based on the size of your photo, or you can use the real dial size function. My photo was 4x6, but I cut the frame at 5-1/2" because I wanted the opening to crop the photo a bit. That worked and both layers fit together nicely. What was tricky to cut was the back of the frame with the stand. I left the setting at 5-1/2" and it cut at exactly 5-1/2". So I had to use the real size button and select 7" to have the frame back fit the frame "front" if you know what I mean. If anyone else has had this same issue, please let me know what you did to make the two parts fit. Thanks for stopping by!
I'm going to put this card at two linky parties:
