Pin It

Holiday Twofer

Present for the teacher? Check. Home cut vinyl? Check.


Tomorrow is the last day of school before the Christmas break. Yes. I said “Christmas” break. Not “holiday”. Any other “holiday” you get two weeks off of school for? NO! --back on track-- So, we decided to make a present for Davin’s teacher. I found the idea on the wonderful world of Pinterest.


Perfect? No way. But that’s because it’s a gift from a 6 year old. And he helped. A lot. Actually, yes. I think it’s just perfect.



Now, how about that vinyl lettering? Pretty slick huh? I’ve had this awesome Silhouette Cameo sitting here for like a month. Thought it was about time I found something to use it for. There’s a bit of a learning curve, and it didn’t work perfectly. But I’m sure it’s user error, and I’m happy with the results. I can’t wait to really put it to the test.





The Cameo is awesome! Or, at least I’m sure it will be, once I learn to use it. I’ve seen so many cool projects from it. And it doesn’t just cut vinyl. It cuts paper, card stock, heat transfers. Ideas are endless.


Couple of questions today -

Do you have a Cameo? Maybe an older model, or a Cricut? If so, what have you made?

Also…are you using Pinterest? Well good for you. And WHY NOT? If you would like an invite, simply leave me a reply and let me know. But be warned - it’s addictive! It will instantly make you realize how little time you have in a day, and how unorganized you are!

No Silhouette... not yet anyway. And I am also not on Pinterest... I didn't need or want another thing taking up my time... but I've been reconsidering on the Pinterest thing. Go ahead and send me an invite and I will give it a try.
