Hybrid Craft: Family Sign

Framed (and Final) Version
Rains Family: Established Sign (framed)

Digital Version
Rains Family: Established Sign (digital)

1 Crafty item down, 2 to go (if only Reva would get me her favorite colors!). This was for my friend Christine. Sort of a combo crafty/housewarming gift.

I've seen the "family established" signs all over the place lately. I've seen them on rustic boards, to nice beveled pieces of wood. I've seen a few framed, and thought that I could give it a little bit more character by making it a digital craft. I first found the frame and then made the digital print based on the size, then had it printed at (which it came out BEAUTIFULLY) and shipped to me. I did have to cut it down to fit the frame (which I knew I would have to do and planned it that way). Then just mounted it on the cute, scrolly easel.

The actual item looks closer to the digital print, as far as colors are concerned. I didn't have a lot of time to take a picture of the item, so I had to have Brian go out and take the pic for me in not-so-great light. But, it still looks nice. Most importantly, Christine likes it. Yay!!! ^_^

Cool. And I like the optimism. Established 2008, and expecting to be around a longgggggggg time.

I still smile when I look at it. Keith really liked it, too! He was so surprised you made it. Thank you so much again! *huggles*

I think since we had ten years to build the foundation before we legally became the Rains Family, it is going to be around for a long time! ^_^

Very nice. I might steal this idea from you, Gabby. My sister is getting married this week, and I don't know what to get her. Being that they are combining two households, they don't need anything, in fact they're trying to get rid of a lot of surplus. I'm hoping to do a painting for them based on their wedding photos (they're getting married in Antigua), but would like to have something for them now.
