Happy New Year!

I know I promosed to post my first project with my new toy. Sorry it took so long! I didn't have much time after Christmas because we went out of town and then directly back to work - boo.

I sat down with it this weekend and after several tries (and much ripped paper), I finally got a project done that is "decor worthy".

I am slowly starting to redecorate several rooms in my house. I know my master bath will eventually be blue and brown with a sort of Jules Verne "Around the World in 80 Days" feel. I did this framed art because I wanted a personal touch in our bathroom and I simply LOVE the colors.

I took an old 11 x 14 frame and cut a nice piece of wrapping paper to fit. I found the wrapping paper on clearance and it was just begging to be purchased! I then took a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 card stock and centered it on the wrapping paper so the paper would be a border. Using my Cricut and the Storybook cartridge, I cut our monogram in "Fancy" style using dark brown cardstock.

I think it turned out quite well and I can't wait to finish my bathroom around this little simple touch!
