Have I told you all how much I love my Cricut.. well," I ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY LOVE MY CRICUT"...LOL :o)
When I seen this quote, I knew this was the sign for me...LOL :O) This is so going to be displayed in my kitchen and with pride... :O)
I love all those primitive country signs out there, but I hate the prices and why buy something when you can make it yourself..right? So,
Look what I made and in less than a few hours!!
"CLICK ON IMAGE TO MAKE IT BIGGER!"
Here I have it on my shelf in my living room.. on the bottom left hand corner...LOL
sorry the photo is so big.. :O)
I took a piece of wood 8"w x 6h" x 1"d..<--hope I did that right..
Sprayed it with glue, attached a piece of brown cardstock cut to size (big enough to cover the sides).
then I cut a piece of printed paper (K & Co-Wild Saffron) and cut a piece to cover just the front 8"x6"..
Used my SCAL software to cut the font and my Cricut design studio for the sheep and heart.. Which by the way I pieced the sheep together using several different cartridges.. body is a scalloped circle (winter woodland cartridge) that I stretched a little bit so it wouldn't be so circular and same thing with the head of hair.. The legs are letter "L" and the face and ears are the letter "P"(<--shadow ) from the "All Mixed Up" cartridge.. The heart is from George and Basic Shapes..
I hand doodled around the letters in "DUST" and in "COUNTRY"..
I used an emery board on the edges of the sign and then rubbed some Distress ink on it.. Walnut Stain and Black..
Thank you ladies so much for looking..
