Family Reunion Chalkboard Paper Banner

Cameo is the greatest tool in cutting out shapes for banners.   I just cut them out then used a Marvy Bistro Chalkboard Marker to do the lettering and added a bit of twine.  My lettering isn't the greatest but this made for a pretty instant banner for our reunion in Lehi, Utah.

Baby Shower

I recently helped a friend work on a few things for a baby shower.  The sex of the baby is unknown so the colour scheme is yellow and mint.  We decided to use a onesie for the banner.  Quite happy with how it turned out.

I also made headers for macaroons in yellow and mint.

August 1, 2015

Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband.  I am so blessed to have him in my life, we just have the "most muchester" fun together.  I am always shocked at how fast the birthdays seem to roll around.  We need to find more opportunities to stop and enjoy life - to let it slow down for just a few minutes.

This is his card and he hasn't seen it yet, very excited to give it to him.  He is my own private pop star and I wanted to make him a card that would reflect his love for music playing the guitar.

I couldn't find a Gibson font anywhere so I traced lettering to create one, I have used it for both print and cut and for cutting vinyl.

I used silver metallic vinyl for the lettering and numbers.  The Happy Birthday, also in a Gibson font is printed on the base of the card.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to make sure everything was lined up and the Happy Birthday would show through in the right spot.  The lettering on the pic is also in silver vinyl.  The silver metallic threads are held into place with Scraperfect's Best Glue Ever.
