Established 2010

Hi Guys,

Hope you had a lovely weekend! I did! My birthday celebration continued into the weekend...Friday night, I had dinner with my husband after which he gifted me with the Silhouette Cameo, which I got to play around with today!!!!!!!!!!!! To end the weekend, we saw one of my old Disney choreographers in a one man song and dance show in downtown LA at the Federal. Such a wonderful way to end the weekend.

My project for you today is my very first Silhouette project. I had been wanting to make a sign like this for awhile now, but part of me was waiting until my husband and I bought our first house. Peachy Keen's challenge this week though inspired me to make it a bit earlier. I am not 100% sold on how it turned out, so maybe I will use this one as a solid draft for a new one when Kyle and I eventually DO find a house!

I will be submitting this project to: Peachy Keen Challenge 41 "3-D Wall Art"

I think what bothers me about this wall art is that the balance is slightly off; I guess Kyle and I will have to add some babies over on the right hand side to fix that.

General Materials used:

  • Old Frame / cork board that I repurposed for this project
  • Silhouette Cameo for all of the phrase, letter, and number cutouts (I learned about the "offset" shadow function immediately!)
  • Peachy Keen SC-07 2012 for my doll faces
  • a flouncy burlap flower on the top corner

More Specific Materials

  • gelly roll pen for the whites of my doll's (AKA Katie and Kyle) eyes
  • Cuttlebug embossing folder for her leopard print dress. :)
  • button
  • baker's twine

More Specific Materials

  • My Creative Time's "Coffee Break" stamp set (I heat embossed the A and the little flower below)
  • more buttons

That's all for now. Thanks for reading and stopping by. Have a fabulous week!
