Home Decor Ahoy!

I'm the Guest Designer at The BugBytes today, and I made a little home decor project.

I used Cricut Craft Room to weld Pennants from Art Philosophy  across the square frame from Art Philosophy.  Then I filled separate pennants with different patterns from Imagine cartridges. The cloud pattern comes from Hop Scotch. I layered 3 unwelded frames under it using foam tape to get a little dimension.

The pirate ship is from Buccaneer with a little foam tape under the front and the back being glued directly to the background. The pearls along the bottom are made with clear decorative accents with a drop of pearl alcohol ink over each one. The glitter letters are from Pink Paislee.

I cut the frame stand from the Fancy Frames cartridge using a pasta box. The blade depth was set at 5, the pressure at 5 and multicut set at 2. It's great for lighter projects, but not as sturdy as the Little Easel Sizzix die by Tim Holtz.
