Craft Cuts: This Is Us FramePosted on Feb 22, 2019 11:10:09 AM by Grace Tolman
With all of the farmhouse art trends going on right now, I couldn’t help but try my hand with making some of it. I combined the beautiful script words from Craft Cuts with the Glue Squares® to make this fun project. My favorite part of the frame is the fact that I can change the photo whenever I want, without having to take apart a frame.

Here's what you do:

Paint the script words using the Pewter, then set aside to dry.
Add the background design using the stencil mask and the metallic luster finish. Set aside to dry.
Paint the small wood clip with more Mushroom paint.
Once everything is dried, set the wood words onto the wood block making sure to space words so that there is room for a 4" x 6" photo to be placed in between. Adhere the wood pieces to each using Glue Squares.
Adhere the clip right underneath the “this” word with Glue Squares.
Now, hang your block and place your most current/favorite photos into the clip.

I’m a mom to a 10 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. Therefore my life is usually filled with learning, new discovery, bribery and driving to and from all of our activities. I have a loving and very supportive husband of 11 years. When the kids have gone to bed at night, my time is spent crafting while catching up on my favorite shows and movies. I also enjoy reading, window shopping, knitting and perusing blogs for inspirations. Three years ago we moved to Colorado from California and we are enjoying our new environment. I feel very inspired with my new home, my new scrapbook space and the mountain views. Although I’ve been doing some type of scrapbooking since grade school, I only started to scrapbook seriously after my son was born. When he was born I knew I would be staying at home with him but coming from a fast paced sales job I was afraid I would ran out of things to do during the day. Little did I know that with newborns you won’t have any time to do anything else. Anyways, after going through a basic scrapbooking class I was hooked and haven’t stopped scrapping since.
