1) This video will show you how I used the Silhouette Studio to change the colors of the print and cut flower design, how I welded my title to a design to create my own unique title, and create an outline around the title with the Silhouette sketch pens.

2) Now that I have my title and flowers cut and sketched from the Silhouette, I’m going to add different pieces of patterned paper to the back of the title using the Soho 6×6 paper pad.


3) Once the title is finished, I adhere the cardstock to the acrylic (this frame has acrylic instead of glass, but a glass frame would work as well). Since the frame is larger than 12×12, I added another piece of cardstock, trimmed the end, and lined up the seam as best I could. Next, I start placing the print and cut flowers along with Soho Garden stickers and flowers, 5th & Frolic brads and buttons, and Amy Tangerine leaves. I just laid them out first to decide how I liked the look before adhering anything. As I laid the flowers and embellishments out, I found it was a good idea to put the frame over the design to see what would show and where to place things.


4) I added one more cut file to this project, the bike. The original design of the bike points to the left. From the menu in Silhouette Studio, I did Object-Transform-Mirror Options-Mirror Right. I used some foam adhesive on some of the flowers and the bike to add a little more dimension.


5) Once everything was adhered, I put this all into the frame again. For even more dimension, adhere some flowers onto the frame itself.


6) Hang up your finished project and enjoy! Thanks for taking a look!
