Close To My Heart My Creations Pennant Frame

Have you ever thought about using your scrapbooking paper to decorate your home?  I know, who would have thought?!  Well, thankfully, Close To My Heart did!  They recognize that your photos of loved ones need to be on display to see every day, instead of hidden inside of an album.  But in a more creative and pretty way; not just in a plain wood frame.

With the My Creations Pennant Frame, a white chipboard frame, you can use your favorite papers and embellishments to highlight a special 6" x 6" photograph.  To make it even easier, they have coordinated the CTMH Artbooking Cricut cartridge to cut out the overlay shape with the push of one button! Just go to page 76 of your manual, set your Real Size Dial to 9 1/2" and cut the Photo Mat 2 in the Wintertime themed keys.

Watch the video below to see 3 gorgeous examples of the finished project:


What do you think?  Isn't this a cute and easy project?  I love Jenn's idea about doing one frame for each family member and hanging them on the wall as a photo frame collage!  Who will you spotlight with this fun technique?


  1. Hi
    When I have the RDS on I can only go up to 6.5" - any explanation? Would love to make this :)

    1. Hi, Kerry -
      What Cricut machine do you have? I used an Expression for this. It had been awhile since I made it, so I just went back and tried it again. My machine did allow me to go to 9.5" with the RDS engaged. I hope it works for you!
