Summer and America Name Frames




I have been meaning to make myself a "Summer" name frame since last year. I made my mom one (and for spring, fall and winter too), but somehow I ran out of time and never got around to finishing my own Summer frame.
Today, I was on a mission to make it! I originally got out my Citrus and Such set by Stampin' Up!, but then realized that I had some designer paper that would work just fine. And instead of using the Big Deal alphabet like I did on my mom's, I decided to use my Cricut and layer the letters. I love that darn thing! (My mom and dad surprised me at Christmas with one!)

Also, I had made this God Bless America frame a while back, but it was just ugly somehow. So, I ripped off the top set of letters and re-cut larger ones on my Cricut (never would have done THAT by hand!). I think it looks much better now. I'll use it for Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day.
