I love this quote as well. I lost my mother-in-law a few years ago and it was devastating. I have been wanting to do something similar to this for a while now but got pre-occupied. Hopefully I can tackle this soon. Thanks for sharing your project. It looks awesome.

I love this!! Do you do this all in one piece or do you have to do each letter, word, design individually? I am new to this and am trying to figure out if there is any way to have this all cut out at once on a mat so I can use transfer tape to put it on all at once.

Thanks!

Hi i do this as one piece, i use my gypsy, if you don't have one there is the Design studio, but i don't know much about it.

I use the hinge and misting method, I go onto utube for videos to see how these methods work. It helps alot!!

Thanks Krista BigGrin

I'd never heard of the hinge method for vinyl so I had to go find it! That would sure make placing vinyl on anything so much easier! Thanks for the tip. BigGrin

If anyone else wants info, here's one of the videos I found:

Thank you for sharing your beautiful floating frame and how to do it. I think I will do one for me and my sister I think right now we both need the encouragement and the inspiration. We lost our mother almost 12 years ago and the holidays are hard. I have a big glass window in my living-room and under the blinds is a small memorial to her because she is in heaven looking down on me that keeps me going when times are the roughest. So again thanks for sharing and I hope you dont mind if I "lift" the idea from you.
