I also have Sweetheart Cherubs at home, this is my oldest daughter Guro as a baby:
I am adding my photos digitally, then printing the finished image on matte photo paper (Canon 170g matte photo paper). I then glue the image onto thin cardboard (cereal box) with spray glue, before I cut it out. After cutting I also distress and ink the edges and corners, for a vintage, worn look. This makes for a nice and stiff image, that I can hang, erect with an easel or even just lean agains something (similar to cabinet cards).
The font is Snell Roundhand Black, it came with my latest Photoshop update. You might be able to find a similar font for free if you search for free fonts.
This frame is not quite as easily adapted, since it is not a die cut frame. But you can download the original from The Graphics Fairy (just click on the image to go to the original post). You can of course use the frame “manually” like my previous frames by hand cutting the center and adding your image behind the opening.
I have also added a family tree to my project, the tree I have used is neither vintage nor free, but if you want to buy it you can find it HERE:
I have marked the people we have covered so far with hearts, including todays main person Guro.
