Pretty Mat or Frame

We were up very early to take our older son to the airport for his flight back to San Francisco.  The time went by so quickly - particularly since we lost two days of his visit when his original flight was canceled due to the snowstorm.

I had planned to work on some projects and start reorganizing my craft room today but I was so exhausted from the past few days that I spent most of the day reading and napping!  Tonight I finally did some test cuts of files I haven't had a chance to try yet.  I often sit and "doodle" on the computer creating files and I have a huge backlog of uncut designs to test cut.

Here is a frame or mat that I created.  I will do a full post with all of the details tomorrow.  If you look closely you will see some tiny hearts - the Valentine crafting season has started!

I really need to try to get myself back on a "normal" sleep schedule so I am making just a quick post tonight.  I will leave you with a question - can you tell which cartridge or cartridges I use to create this design?   The first person to post a comment with the correct answer will get a little surprise from me!


  1. My guess for cartridge used would be Home Decor.


    ps. love your work and this design.

  2. Love your blog!

    I will guess: Winter Woodland and When It's Cold Outside.

  3. Diane,
    I don't have a clue what cartridge/cartridges you used, but that is a beautiful creation!! You are so talented!!! Thanks for showing us your latest design!!

  4. Storybook? It has tons of cute little frames even though I don't remember this one personally.

  5. Diane,
    I am taking a stab at this one and will say you used the Easter and the Mother's Day carts to make this beautiful design.

  6. Hi Diane,
    I think you used Mini Monograms and Wedding Carts. Am I right?

  7. No, maybe it was mini monograms and sweethearts. I'm probably not close!

  8. I am taking a guess and going with the first cartridge that came to my mind. That would be Storybook.

  9. wow, another awesome design from you! I can't figure out which cartridge you used, but I'd love to have the cut file. I'm guessing you used doodlecharms because of the leaf design? I don't know, but this is fantastic and I love the scallop circle in the center!

  10. Congrats Linda!

    You were the first to guess and you are right. I'll be emailing you for your address to send you a little surprise.

    Dell - I don't have the Easter and Mother's Day carts - yet... I hope to get them soon.

    Thanks again to everyone for playing along - I'd love to see something you make using this file.
