Creating w/ my Silhouette Part 2

Well here is another project I've been wanting to do for some time. I had been eyeing all the fun knobs at Hobby Lobby and needed some place to organize my necklaces. So this is what I came up with. Super simple too.

I used "Folk Art" Home Decor Chalk Paint. I first applied the color "Sheep skin" and once that was good and dry I applied my vinyl shape, " Bracket Swirly".  Next I applied the "Cascade/teal" color of chalk paint and when it was tacky I used a cloth to rub some of the paint off so the "white/sheep skin" would show through. Once it was pretty much dry I peeled the vinyl off. Hope this will inspire you to create something too and share it with the rest of us!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Getting crafty w/ my silhouette Part 1

Hey there,

I know I don't have much activity on my blog these days, but I'm hoping to change all that!!
Here is a banner I made for a friends daughter's graduation. It was such a cute idea and so simple. Just a few embroidery hoops, letters cut on the silhouette "font SNF Dear Miss Rose" and some tule.

This banner has 14, 10' hoops. We strung it between the patio awning. 
This would also be fun as a monogram on a gallery wall, or at the holidays with "Joy" or "Peace" over the mantel.

We also created some fun center pieces. Using a scalloped circle cut on the silhouette and punched out photos.

I would love to hear any other ideas you might have for these fun embroidery hoops!!

Hope you have a blessed week!!
