365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#73 California Dreamin frame (Challenge 5 w/ Joanna)

Here's how the frame looks laying down, also you can see where I painted the inside and outside with black acrylic paint.

The challenge of the week! Pink glittery sunglasses with blue diamonds from Paisley.

This is what the frame looks like when it's standing on the leg attached to the frame.

A close up of the the title, butterfly and palm tree.

For my 5th challenge with my sister  Joanna I chose to make the sunglasses from Paisley. I had so many ideas of what I wanted to do so I finally decided to make a frame. I bought the frame from Michael's. I cut each object 4 times including once on chipboard, the sunglasses are from Paisley, title is from LAB and the butterfly is from a Martha Stewart punch. I put everything in my xyron sticker machine then sprinkled with Martha Stewart glitter. I painted the inside and outside of the frame with black acrylic paint. For the glasses I put glossy accents on the black part to make it look like real shades! I put 3 blue diamonds on each sides of the glasses.

Wonderful frame! The sunglasses are wonderful! They remind me of a pair I had in the 80's with little shooting stars on the "eyebrows". I think they were from the early 50s originally, I just had sunglasses put in. lol And I was living in California at the time : D.
