By The Sea Framed Art with My Mind's Eye

Hi everyone!  It's Apryl with the FotoBella Design Team here to share my latest project using My Mind's Eye By the Sea I Want It All Bundle.  Have you ever made a framed art project with your cutting machine and scrapbook supplies?  I have been wanting to do a project like this for awhile and am really excited with how it turned out! 

 I found this saying "Family is the anchor that holds us through life's storms" at the online Silhouette store and had to have it.  I used my Cameo to cut it out on a piece of 12' x 12' white textured card stock.  

I used a variety of 6"x 6" and pieces of 12"x12" papers from the By the Sea collection to tape to the back and fill the words.  It was such a fun creative process!  Mixing and matching the paper patterns to get just the right look I wanted took a while but was well worth it. 

I think my favorite pattern is the red and white stripe paper that I place at opposite angles for the words "Anchor" and "Us".

My second favorite?  The anchor!  I added a banner die cut that I altered to hide the words that was already written on it I and added our family name "Holland" using the navy and silver alpha stickers.  

I also added the lighthouse die cut to the bottom left hand corner of the piece.  So fun!  The embellishments and the white card stock cut out was inked using dark brown and navy ink pads.  Where is the frame from your wondering?  Good ol' Hobby Lobby!  

Like this project?  Want one for yourself?  Go to to get your My Mind's Eye By The Sea bundle and Hobby Lobby for a fabulous frame!  

Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. Loving this!! Awesome decor project Apryl!!

  2. Curves, arches, and circles are gaining popularity and add a touch of softness to interiors that are both contemporary and traditional. We like how this smart bedroom design transforms a practical storage option into a stunning feature, complete with tiny downlighters which allow your display to glow at night. The design cleverly mimics the asymmetrical curve that the headboard has. Brilliant!

  3. Generate leads with Instagram Stories and Live Streams
    Instagram stories content is only visible for 24 hours. Before moving on to the regular posts, most Instagram followers will peek at Instagram stories. It's a terrific way to show off a variety of stuff. Images, films, or short promotional texts could all be used. You can also post an unlimited number of tales. Live streaming are engrossing and allow for real-time interactions. As you broadcast, people can comment, share, and enjoy your content. Demonstrations of products can be done using live broadcasts. It's also an opportunity to meet the people who make up the team. Brand collaboration can be facilitated through live streams. You can gain access to audiences outside of your profile by collaborating with brands. You gain more visibility, which may lead to additional followers.

  4. Find the best time to post on Instagram.
    Notice how we didn't say it's best to post to Instagram? In truth, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to the question of when to post on Instagram in order to reach as many people as possible. But there are ways to determine the perfect timing for your followers. First, use Instagram Insights to figure out when your audience is online. Click the Insights button on your Instagram business profile, scroll to Your Audience, then click See All. From there, scroll down to find your audience's most active periods. Instagram Insights helps you find the best time to post. You should also consider when your content will be most relevant. For example, a step-by-step recipe video may be better off-hours because people are more likely to cook. On the other hand, a message in a coffee shop can be successful around 2:00 pm. when people are going through an afternoon recession. Experiment with different post times and track engagement. If you need more guidance on when to post, Buffer's Answers offers you three post time options to maximize your Instagram reach. Buffer's Answers uses data from your previous posts and subscriber activity to calculate the best time to post. For more detailed instructions, see our article How to find the best time to post on Instagram.

  6. Digamos que um novo usuário chegue ao seu site e gostaria de saber mais e então navegue pelo blog do seu site. Eles levam alguns minutos para ler seu blog e descobrir o que estão procurando e, em seguida, vão embora. Isso é mostrado como uma porcentagem do conteúdo da página do site, todas as páginas e taxa de saída.

  7. Hank: Os profissionais de marketing só devem enviar mensagens para pessoas que precisam de comunicações deles. Não há casos especiais. Um método para garantir que os endossantes realmente desejam suas mensagens é usar a seleção em duas etapas. Isso permite que os endossantes digam que estão interessados em suas mensagens incríveis e os ajuda a encontrar seus e-mails em suas caixas de entrada e, em seguida, remover a mensagem do spam, caso ela acabe lá.


  8. Your online group is the social occasion you can reach with your substance. On Instagram, your group joins people who follow you and other people who show up at your substance. Coming up next are people who need to remain related with your business, picture, or item. Whenever people follow your Instagram account, your posts appear in their Instagram feed. For example, Fortunate Bush by and by has 501 aficionados on Instagram. Each time Maria appropriates a post, it can appear in the feed of her fans. Accounted accounts measure the quantity of people who have seen your substance, including people who aren't following you. People can find your posts or story when they search for hashtags you use. For example, when people search for the hashtag #gardendesign, they can see Fortunate Bush's posts and stories.
