The challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 is Heritage or Family. I have had a school picture of my grandfather from 1898 for a few years now and this was a perfect excuse to scrap it.
This picture was given to my father by a neighbor who had had several copies made. The names are all typed on the back. I wanted to be able to frame the picture, but also remove it easily if we wanted to. I found a frame from the cartridge called “The First Few Years” that I felt would be big enough for the photo. When the red frame on top of the tan background, I only put adhesive on the sides and bottom leaving the top free to slide the picture into. The arrow box came from the same cartridge and I let the Cricut write the name using a free font called Telegram text. The title came from Heritage and I cut it and the date from a bronze vinyl. It was a quick page to do. Picking out the paper took longer than it did to cut it.
Make a project with your family as the inspiration using your Cricut and link it up over at Bitten by the Bug 2 by November 20. – Denise
