A Couple More Silhouette Projects

While the giveaway and promotion of the Silhouette are still going on, I thought I'd show you a few more things I've done with my new BFF.  Warning: I've turned into a label freak.  It makes me feel so good to have things organized and my husband can't say he doesn't know where something goes.  There's a label.  Ha!  So here's the latest:

I labeled some more bins.


I organized our candy stash.  Now I choose my mood....chocolate or fruity.  (It's chocolate 90% of the time for me.)


I put a phrase on the wall of the cowboy room that I've been meaning to do for over two years now.  We moved Baden to this room about a month ago.  He's a big boy now and this phrase fits him way too well.


Here's a close up of the lettering.


Lastly, I had to change the front door from Christmas to everyday.  I used the premium vinyl (the one the promotion is for) and it was just as easy to use as the regular kind.  It's made to handle outdoor conditions.  I also put numbers on our mailbox, but I'm not showing you that (in case there's some crazy stalker out there searching for my address :)


Yeah, so I really like vinyl now.  It's pretty fun.  Obsessively fun.

I have a really fun Feature Friday tomorrow that I'm excited to show you.  See you then!  Thanks for dropping by.

  2. OOOOh la la! I love it! You are making want to buy one really really badly! I would go nuts with the labels too. Last year we got Baz a labeler for his birthday (per his request) and they started showing up around the house EVERYWHERE. I don't think Jo was too pleased. So Baz might need one too.

  3. I am debating about getting one. I am just bummed that it doesn't cut fabric. I do like that you can use it with freezer paper though! Do you find it expensive for materials? Like do you have to use a particular vinyl ?

  6. Sweeter Hours: If you buy the vinyl in bigger rolls (10ft.) it's pretty cheap. It's easy to use that much of black and white. You can use any brand, but if it's for the Cricut than you'll have to cut it down to be 9 inches whide instead of 12. They are working on it cutting fabric actually. I know it is a pricey machine, but it really is pretty amazing. I love how you can lay everything out on the computer before cutting it. So awesome. The t-shirt vinyl is a little pricey, but like you said. It cuts freezer paper, so you're set.

    Jenna: The wreath is from Target.

  7. I love Vinyl too. I have a cricut and I use it to cut all my vinyl...I make a lot of personalized shirts, diaper covers, and more with the heat transfer vinyl :) Plus I made our BIG Wall sticker thing That spells out our last name....its the best invention EVER :)

  8. Do you use the clear contact paper method to get the vinyl up on the wall all nice and straight!?

  9. Mrs. Ohtobe: I DO use the transfer paper. It's not quite clear, but enough to see what you're doing. I tried to do stuff without it and that was REALLY hard and frustrating.

  16. I love that you separate your chocolate and fruity candies. Everyone makes fun of me for it, but I HATE when the flavors mix. Love it!

  17. LOVE the bed! My son's room is cowboy/western theme. We are transitioning him into a "big boy" bed in a few months and I haven't been able to find him something that I like. Would you possibly post something about his bed and how you did it or where you got it? LOVE the candy idea too! Supremely cute!

  18. I'm totally loving that you have two candy bins! That's awesome! I get you on the labeling, too, you can never have too many labels. :)
