Personalized Wedding (or Holiday) Gift


I wish I had a better picture of this - I mean I only took like two hundred pictures but I could not, no matter how hard I tried get rid of the reflections in the picture.  But regardless - here is a gift I made recently for friends of ours that just got married.  I have to admit - I absolutely love how this came out and I will definitely be making one for myself this week.  This was so simple too -  my favorite kind of craft!


I found these great frames in Mitchael's and I told Hubby I should have bought them all because they don't always have this size and shape.  Next time I go I will be clearing  the shelves.  Besides the frame all you need is some vinyl I chose white and black for this and your favorite cutting device, I have a Cricut.


I made another one of these a while ago but could not find this shape frame - I really think this frame makes a huge difference.  My other one was bigger with different fonts (it was before I had an abundance to choose from) and it was jazzed up with some pretty ribbon.


I really do love how the "West" hanging came out - so if you know me - and you have a special anniversary or wedding coming up - don't be surprised if you get one of these personalized gifts- now I just need to get back to Michael's.

Linking up HERE to these great parties!

  1. I love it...do you use Cricut software or a cartridge? I like how the "est" in West is connected and I don't know how to do that, all my cartridges cut the letters single. Thanks!

  2. This is so sophisticated that it looks like something you'd get at Pottery Barn! I can't wait to get my Cameo - it's in the mail!! My friends and family will be getting something along these lines :)

  20. Many types of personalized gifts are available and each of them will make the baby’s family equally happy. If you want to go with a traditional one then a personalized baby basket will be perfect. These baskets are filled with gifts and necessary items for the baby. You can personalize such a basket by simply adding or replacing some of the items.
