Blessed to Have You Frame – Lori Whitlock Design Team Post

When I saw Lori’s Family Word Art Titles file in her store, I just had to have it!  This phrase is something that I tell my husband and children all the time, so it is especially meaningful to me.  I did something very, very simple.  First, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the phrase out.  Next, I cut a piece of paper from Lori’s new Echo Park Paper Sweet Girl paper line to use as the background.  There’s a trick though!  The patterned paper was just what I wanted to use, but the brightness of it competed with the phrase.  To solve this, I covered it with a piece of vellum.  Problem solved!  It muted the print just enough to make sure that the saying really stood out.  I put everything in the frame and added those precious chipboard images from Lori’s Sweet Girl embellishments.  Here are some things I’ve pinned on Pinterest that I made using Lori’s great files.

Happy crafting!

  2. Super cute, Joy! I love the saying too! Thanks for the tip of adding vellum to “tone down” the brightness of the paper! I am not sure I would of thought of that! That’s why I love coming to your blog! 🙂
