Family Name Plaque

Today is another Craft Junkie Too Design Team day. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love being on Tracy's Design Team!! Her awesome assignments are just a small part of it. 

 The challenge for this week is:
I "heart" you
- include a heart on your project -

Today, I made a plaque for my home that includes our names in vinyl. I love these frames from Craft Warehouse. I grabbed a few on clearance and have enjoyed decorating them with  vinyl and my Cricut.

I used my Gypsy to fit the letters to size using Nate's ABCs (for the red letters) and Birthday Bash (for the black letters). The little hearts are from Simply Sweet.

I use clear shelf paper instead of more pricey vinyl transfer tape sold for the Cricut. It works perfectly and costs so much less (I grabbed a huge roll at Big Lots a while back). This vinyl also came from Craft Warehouse. I stopped in there last summer and found sheets or 12" x 14" for $1 a sheet!!! I picked up several different colors including white, black, red, and gray.

I love how you can see through the glass in my frame. The wall paint color is visible, it truly makes this home decor project work in any room in my house.

That's it, please head over to Tracy's blog and see what
