  • Cricut Maker or Cricut Joy
  • Standard grip mat

  • Cricut’s Hostess with the Mostess Winter Sparkle Deluxe Paper 1 sheet
  • Cricut Transfer Tape
  • Rock’n SVG cut file
  • Small Pebbles
  • Hot glue gun with clear craft glue


  • Disassemble the photo frame.
  • Starting in one corner of the picture frame, apply a dab of hot glue. Working quickly and carefully, press one small pebble into the glue.
  • Continue covering the surface of the frame with pebbles until finished.
  • Uploading the SVG Pattern, upload Father’s Day Rock’n Phrases SVG File into Design Space.
  • Adjust phrase size to fit inside the picture frame accordingly.
  • Insert one square shape onto the Design Space canvas to create the photo frame backing. Size the square to match the size of the picture frame.
  • Use the color sync tab to assign colors to the images for different material types: Premium Vinyl and Cardstock (Deluxe Paper).
  • Select “Make It” in Design Space and follow the prompts on the screen to cut out the images.
  • When done, remove the Premium Vinyl from the mat and then cut and remove the Deluxe Paper from the mat.
  • To assemble the Frame, place the glass from the photo frame on a flat surface.
  • Cut around the vinyl cut phrase with a pair of scissors. Using the weeding tool, peel away the excess vinyl around the cut phrase and discard.
  • Cut a piece of transfer tape, peel away the transfer tape backing and place the transfer tape overtop of the cut phrase.
  • Peel away the vinyl backing, leaving just the phrase adhered to the transfer tape and position the phrase with the transfer tape on to the glass and press in place.
  • Press the vinyl phrase down and slowly and carefully remove the transfer tape leaving the vinyl phrase on the glass.
  • Place the glass back into the pebble picture frame and place the blue cardstock paper mat into the frame against the glass. Reassemble the backing into the frame.
