Silhouette Fun!

Jim got me a Silhouette a few months ago and I have finally sat down and had some fun with it.  For those that don’t know what a Silhouette is, it is a digital craft cutter. It cuts vinyl and paper. I have been wanting one for a while because I always see all these cool things to do with vinyl but I never have the money to order them. I love finding an idea and then changing it up and designing it just how I want it. Here are a few of the things I have worked on lately.


Brandy and I made this plate when she was here. You can find the plates at Target. They are $1.50 I think, a total steal!  The bird on the branch is from the Silhouette store. The fonts are CK Becky (spring) and Palatino linotype (happy).  It was fun and easy to make, I think I will do one for each season.


I’ve been wanting to put something above our family picture and I saw this saying on another website. I really like how it turned out, it really finishes the wall. I used CK Chemistry and CK Puppy love. I like how the I in family has a heart over it.


I finally got the kids new pictures printed and hung up. I cut their names out in vinyl to put above their pictures. The girls names are a little too big, but I like how they turned out. I used the fonts CK Stenography & CK Ali’s hand.


I saw this quote on another website and I knew it would be perfect for under the clock in our living room. The cursive font is Scriptina and I used CK chemistry again for the other font. It is one of my favorite fonts, I am using it a lot lately. This was a little harder to do with getting everything lined up on the transfer paper, but I think I did pretty good. I really like how the white and black look together.


I had some space on the vinyl I cut out for the breath saying and I really like to use every inch of my vinyl because I hate wasting it; so I cut this out to go in the playroom above the DeVaux Cousins pictures.  I used the font Pea Zobrist. We will have to get some Anderson cousin pictures this summer when we are all together!

I made this for Thomas’s teacher for Teacher Appreciation week. So easy and cute! I can’t remember what font I used for this.

So that is what I have been doing this week while the kids have enjoyed the beautiful weather outside. I think I need to order some more vinyl so I can do some more projects!

Wow! I would like having one of those too, but I'm not sure I would be so productive. I love all the ways you've used it! :)

It is so fun to see your cute family!
