Floating Home Décor Ideas

The latest CTMH video is Floating Your Fancy. The video gives us two ideas for beautiful home décor items. I think either would make wonderful gifts.

Today's video is Floating Your Fancy. The CTMH Corp. description is "Get the most out of Close To My Heart's Cricut® Artbooking cartridge with these fun home décor ideas. Create decorative floating frames and functional message boards quickly and easily."

Products used in the video:
Some of the tips mentioned in the video:
  • this first project is like a floating mini layout
  • the Snapshots Mini-Album overlay can be found on page 40 of the Artbooking handbook
  • the artwork was placed between two panes of glass so it would appear to be floating
  • the ponderosa pine overlay was cut at 7 1/2 inches using Real Dial Size
  • the other colors of overlay were cut at 3 1/2 inches using Real Dial Size
  • the other colors used were: topiary, sweet leaf, the dot from Lollydoodle and twilight
  • if using two panes of glass, be strategic when applying your adhesive to minimize the adhesive showing through the glass
  • the second project, a weekly chart, uses the overlay from the School Layout on page 68
  • the overlay was cut at 11 inches using Real Dial Size and Fit to Page features
  • the exclusive stamp set, My Acrylix My Life, from the Artbooking collection was used to stamp the dates on tags
  • the tags were cut at 3/4 inches using Real Dial Size

I don't know about you, but I am inspired to create a home décor item. If you are ready to place an order the Shop Now button will take you to my Online Business Address.
