Good morning! A few weeks ago I created this fun "Lucky Us" home decor using a couple of pictures of my girls and the Lucky Collection. Today, I am going to show you how I created this piece.
All of the layers of the Lucky Collection are prominently displayed against the black and white photographs.
To start, I created a file using my Silhouette. You could easily achieve similar results using manual die cuts, or even a craft knife! The base of this piece is simply a sheet of 110# white cardstock, with four hearts and a stem shape cut from it. I also cut this down to 8x10" in order to fit within the frame.
I then created a frame for the outside of the white cardstock using the hearts, then welding those shapes together.
To create the inner heart shape, I selected only the hearts from the frame, then added smaller hearts.
By deleting the larger hearts, I was left with the inner frame.
The last piece cut using my Silhouette was the "Lucky Me" phrase. For this and the "Lucky Us" phrase, I used a combination of phrases all from the Silhouette Online Store.
Once all of the pieces were planned out, I started my cutting. I have found that if I plan everything out, then cut, it takes far less time.
Here are all of the pieces. There are two pieces that are simply handcut.
Xyron 9" Creative Station.
9" Creative Station. This makes the back sticky, so all of the other pieces will adhere to it.
The rest of the pieces were also run through the 9" Creative Station before being adhered to the back of the home decor piece.
Xyron 3" Sticker Maker to adhere the title pieces.
