Hi there! Nancy here with a project made using some of my surplus of crafting supplies. I admit, I am just about as bad about collecting vinyl as I am paper! I order most of my vinyl from expressionsvinyl.com. It is the same vinyl as our Cricut vinyl, but runs about $1.89 for a 12x24 of the regular indoor vinyl. Anyway, I have a ton of it and lots of scraps. I also collect frames, glassware, mirrors, etc. to use with my vinyl. I decided I would use the Word Collage Cartridge to make a changeable seasonal wall decoration. I used an 8x8 shadowbox frame that I had in my stash and lots of vinyl scraps. I cut the whole collage in black and then added the colored pieces to highlight. I plan on making an insert for every season. This particular one is cut at 7.5 inches square, but I will probably cut the rest at 7x7 so they don't go all the way to the edge. The background paper (another scrap), is cut at 8x8. I do apologize for the glare and/or shadow you see-I just couldn't get the perfect photo in the light I had. I think I will also add a removeable accent to the outside of the frame for each season. Probably use magnets to hold it on. Hope you like it.
