Silhouette Promo | Easter Candy Bags & Boxes

Today I’m bringing you two of my favorite things together – Easter candy and a Silhouette promo – along with another favorite of mine, the Silhouette cut files of designer Lori Whitlock! She designed both of the candy container templates I used for these projects.

These fun containers make a great way to share a sweet treat with someone, and can be adapted for any holiday with themed supplies. I used my Silhouette’s Print & Cut feature, along with some themed print & cut files, to make these festive for Easter.

Silhouette Giveaway & Promo: 30% off All Supplies

I recently needed to make a card for a friend’s wedding. I hadn’t yet tried the Silhouette Glitter Kit, so I decided this was the perfect occasion to try it out. After all, if you can’t glitter a wedding, what can you glitter?
Silhouette Wedding Card

Supplies – Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee (London Market 6×6). Ink: Ranger Tim Holtz Distress (Antique Linen). Pens: Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Pens (Black Soot, Warm Lipstick). Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Sophie’s Sentiments). Die Cutting Supplies: Silhouette Portrait Machine, Silhouette Glitter Kit, Silhouette Cut File (2 Wedding Icons by Lori Whitlock).

I used my Silhouette Portrait machine to cut the shape of the rings out of the double-sided adhesive paper that came in the kit. I peeled the first side and stuck the shape down and then peeled to reveal the adhesive for the glitter. I opened the glitter to shake it onto the adhesive and was absolutely blown away at how fine it was. The texture is beautiful and it stuck wonderfully with very full coverage. Continue Reading →

Project | Olivia Tattoos [Silhouette Promo]

Ever since I discovered in the Silhouette online store that they have Olivia licensed images, I’ve been dying to find a project that they are right for. My daughter loves Olivia – we must own every single Olivia book, stuffed toy, and video every produced!

The new Silhouette promo for the company’s specialty media gave me a great idea of what to do with the images – temporary tattoos! The house is decorated in top to bottom Olivia (or at least it feels like it at times), so why not the kid too?

Creating a tattoo with the Silhouette temporary tattoo paper is as simple as selecting a print and cut image (or making your own), flipping it to create a mirror image, and then printing it on the tattoo paper. When you are done printing, you adhere the adhesive sheet over the top of the tattoo print. Then you run it through your Silhouette machine.

After I did all that and peeled away the excess tattoo paper, I was left with these tattoos on my mat:

The Silhouette Stamping Kit with Project Life!

One of the biggest responses I got from readers of CHA Summer coverage was when I wrote about the new products in the Silhouette booth – and specifically the Silhouette stamping kit. The kit lets users of Silhouette machine cut their own custom acrylic stamps using their machines, and generated a lot of excitement.

I myself was very excited to try it so was delighted to get one from Silhouette to try for this promotion. The stamping kit comes with stamping material, 3 stamp blocks, a cutting mat, and an ink pad. There’s also a card that allows the user to claim special stamp images for their Silhouette library, and a how to dvd.

What I found was actually surprising. I had somehow thought that the stamp kit was going to be hard to use with some special steps that had to be done. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was quick and easy, like cutting any other medium on the Silhouette.

The only real difference to cutting the stamp medium is that you have to use this special mat in the machine with it. Here it is, all loaded and ready to cut with a half sheet of stamp material:

Giveaway | Silhouette Sketch Pens Promotion!

Silhouette is offering another one of their great promotions if you use this link and enter our code “Update” at checkout in their online store. This time around, in addition to the Cameo and Portrait machines, you can get great deals on their Sketch Pens.

My Portrait machine is still a new enough addition to my scrapbook room that I hadn’t had a chance to try the pens yet until I got a chance to try them through this promotion. I’d been eyeing some sketch art in the Silhouette online store that I wanted to try though!

I just completed this double layout of my day with my daughter at Animal Kingdom using the Project Life Midnight Core Kit.
