Hey Everyone! Ken here with Ken's Kreations.
You might have seen my recent Disneyland Frame Post that I posted last week. Well, you know how some people say they found their craft mojo? Well, that frame got my craft mojo started back up on making decor frames. If you have not seen my other frames you can take a peek at them here:
Many of you who know me, know that my dogs are like my kiddos. They are essentially my fur babies! Well, my good friend Becky feels the same way about her adorable chihuahua, Jax. It is her fur baby that goes everywhere with her. So as Christmas arrived, I wanted to make a frame of her baby in his honor. One of the reasons I adore Cricut Design Space is the ability to plan out and visually see my project even before cutting the material. Here was the design I had come up with in regards to this specific frame.
It always amazed me how close the Cricut Design Space plan is to the finished product. Once I had the design all planned out I could start the fun part, the designing phase!
You can download the Chihuahua SVG File here. It is actually a 4th of a July set, but worked perfectly as a dog in a top hat. The dog bowl and actually the dog leash can be found by CLICKING HERE. I cut these items on my Cricut Explore Air 2 using Cricut Cardstock and Glitter Cardstock. Once the items were cut I inked up the edges to match the color of the dog. My favorite ink and tools to use for inking my edges are Tim Holtz Ink Squares and the Ranger Blending Tool. I also define the different layers of the dog by using 3D Foam Squares. Instead of cutting out small white circles for the dogs eyes, I decided to use a Fine Tip White Gel Pen.
The dog verse and the Jax's name were done by using Cricut Fine Tip Pens and utilizing "Hand Written Fonts" in Cricut Design Space. It is amazing the Cricut Explore Air 2 has the ability to draw this impeccably. Once the "dog definition" was wrote and cut, I used Tim Holtz Ink Squares and the Ranger Blending Tool to ink the edges. To give the paper a distressed look, I also used Dark Roast Color Silk. The dog leash was also raised up from the photos using 3D Foam Squares.
Now that I had the Dog, Bowl, Definition and Leash all cut out and inked, I could more onto the photos. I mean it is a shadow box frame, so photos would be nice. The photos have offsets cut from Cricut Cardstock and Glitter Cardstock. I wanted to have a nice finished look for the offset, so I punched the paper using the We R Memory Keepers Deco Corner Choimper. I raised the actually photos up using 3D Foam Squares and on each corner I affixed Colored Rhinestones. The frame had some finishing touches like the Wooden Stars and Pearls.
