Silhouette CAMEO & Rolling Tote Deal

Hello friends!

I'm just popping in today to share the latest and greatest deal on the Silhouette.  Oh how I love my CAMEO!  I have spent many hours getting to know my CAMEO since I received it just a few months ago.   The creative possibilities really are endless!  I teach the Young Women at church, and I have loved making cute hand-outs and paper crafts to go along with my lessons each Sunday using the CAMEO.

Because I am a bargain girl,  I really do love to help spread the word about a good deal.  Especially when it comes to the Silhouette.  This month, there is an incredible bargain on the Silhouette CAMEO® rolling tote.

(Did I mention that we live next door to a park?!)

The rolling tote is a genius idea!  Before receiving my tote, hauling my CAMEO to craft night was much more difficult.  The tote has plenty of room for my CAMEO, laptop, cutting mats, and all of the accessories!  It is available in both pink and teal.

From May 24-31, you can redeem this amazing deal only at this unique link:

You can save about $60 purchasing a CAMEO and a rolling tote for the price of $309 (instead of $370).   If you already own a CAMEO, you can still a purchase a rolling tote at the discounted pride of $54.99.  Just use code "OOPSEY" at the unique link above if you're interested.

Thanks for reading!  Have a great day!

Mother’s Day Card {Using Silhouette Sketch Pens}

Remember the stenciled mason jar vased with flower love notes that I shared earlier this week?  Well, Mother's Day is just around the corner, and I needed a card to go along with my Mom's gift.  So yesterday I set to work creating a card for my sweet Mother.  Cards mean a lot in our family.  My parents almost always tear up when they read our cards--every birthday, Mother's Day, Christmas, etc.!  And my Mother saves each and every one.

I used some Silhouette sketch pens to create this quick and easy Mother's Day card.

 

Say hello to my brand new CAMEO!  This beauty arrived on my doorstep just a few short weeks ago.  I am in LOVE, my friends.  I have long supported both the Cricut and the Silhouette--as equally as I possibly could.  I have seen pro's and con's to both machines.  However, this week I have really gotten to know my CAMEO.  The Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition software is beyond incredible!  I am excited to practice even more!

BUT my lil' machine came to me with a defective blade.  So I put my thinking cap on to create a project that did not require any cutting.  Instead, I wanted to practice a bit with my new sketch pens.

I was given a pack of glitter sketch pens and metallic sketch pens.  Aren't they pretty?  I learned a little trick along the way.  It appears that the sketch pens work best if the paper has not been touched.  If the paper has any oils from your fingers, the image shows up only part-way.

The rest was simple!  I inserted the sketch pen into the blade holder, designed the card and image in the software, and it came out beautifully!  This image is butterfly_floral_lace_square_C00500_19210.

I just had to use the old-fashioned method of doing the actual cutting out of the card.  (Can you believe I actually had to use scissors?!  Sheesh!  The Silhouette just makes me lazy.)

One of my Mother's favorite songs is "I Often Go Walking", and I wanted to use one of the lyrics for her card.  My Mom loves flowers.  She could spend all day long in her garden.  Everything about flowers makes me think of my Mother, so this lyric was just perfect.  I used the black sketch pen to sketch the tag and the words on burgundy cardstock.

London Skyline T-shirt {Fabric Ink Starter Kit}

Happy New Year, friends!

I hope you rang in the New Year in style!

You might know me as one of the only bloggers out there who still uses a Cricut.  I stuck firmly to the Cricut forever--even after most other bloggers had made the big switch to the Silhouette.  I actually own, use, and love both the Cricut and Silhouette.  (Yes, it is possible!) I love things about both machines!  But I do love all of the accessories and options that come with the Silhouette!  Last week, I tried out Silhouette's fabric ink starter kit. I love this kit!  It's a simple way to create intricate stencils on fabric for a professional look.

My baby sis was in town for the holidays, so we got together for some quality crafting time!

My sister Kara went to school in London last summer, and thoroughly enjoyed her time there.  She adores all things "London!"

We busted out the Silhouette fabric ink starter kit.

The kit included:

Special fabric vinyl

Special transfer paper

Foam brush and sponge

Hook tool

Black fabric paint and tray (This paint was strong!  Not your average craft paint!)

We found this London skyline image in the Silhouette library and sized it correctly using the Silhouette studio software.

After cutting the stencil out of the vinyl, I used the transfer paper to apply it to the t-shirt.  We used blue painter's tape to create a box for our design.

(We also could have used the negative space from the vinyl instead, but that would have been tricky for such an intricate image! We kind of created our stencil inside out!)

Great Deal on the Silhouette!

Tonight was a big night for me.

For the very first time, I used my Silhouette!  I feel all grown up now.  Truthfully, I've been staring it down for about a month, afraid to learn a new machine all over again.  The Cricut and I have been such great friends for so long.

It was an adventure though.  At midnight, I was pulling my hair out because I refused to read the instructions or watch the instructional video--the video that my husband promised to watch with me accompanied by a big bowl of popcorn!  But I was stubborn, determined to figure out the Silhouette through a little trial and error!!

And I conquered!  The Silhouette and I are friends now.  :)

I love LOTS of things about the Silhouette machine.  I love that there are so many options.  You don't just cut paper. For example, you can create your very own temporary tattoos!

After staying up until the wee hours of the morning with me, my husband even let me tattoo him!  Yes, he made me tattoo his shoulder so his clients wouldn't see it...

We were thinking patriotic!

I can't wait for Little Man to wake up so he can try out his own temporary tattoo, too!

I was pretty amazed at this whole process...

After making these Silhouette images into mirror images using the Silhouette Studio software, I printed them on my printer. Following the directions, I layered it with an adhesive paper.
