It's Not a Card!! 


Todays project is a magnet frame, I got the idea from Tammy Skinner at her website http://www.cricutcritters.com/ she teaches a class is Texas and since Texas is a little far from North Carolina I thought I would try to figure it out on my own. This isn't perfect but since it is mainly an experiment that works I though I would post it! She uses the Sentimentals Cricut Cartridge and I do not own that one (might have to start stalking Ebay LOL) I used SCAL2 and a Penny Duncan SVG file called "swirly Frame" (I will include the link to Penny's website at the bottom) I did modify it in SCAl, I deleted some of the extra cuts that were tiny and created a shadow layer with a 3.75 x 5.75 inside frame and resized the frame to fit the same inside window so that it would fit a 4x6 photo. I used Avery magnet paper which is thinner that the Cricut magnet material so I did not have to use my Deep Cut Blade. This is two cuts, the shadow layer and then the vinyl layer, I also added a few jewels to give it some bling. The photo is of Me, my little sister (we are 41 years apart) and my Grandson.
