It’s no secret in these parts that my absolute favorite crafting tool is my Silhouette machine. I received mine as a Christmas gift back in 2012, and since then, I have made over 60 projects with this powerhouse of a digital craft-cutter. She barely gets put away.
I don’t know what I love more: the versatility of how many types of materials it can cut (from paper to vinyl to fabric and beyond!) or its ability to enable an ordinary crafter like me to make some truly professional-quality creations.
The Silhouette in Action
For those who are curious, here are 5 of my absolute favorite handmade creations…each one made with the assistance of my handy dandy Silhouette machine. And I included an in-process photo along with a finished photo, just so you can catch a glimpse at the behind-the-scenes fun. To see each step-by-step in detail, just click through the link to the full tutorial.
My casserole dishes will no longer “accidentally” walk home with someone else. Not now that they have been “branded” thanks to the help of my Glass Etching Starter Kit!
I decided that my business cards needed a little extra SWAG this summer in preparation for Haven Blog Conference, so I very easily whipped up three unique designs for some temporary tattoos that catered specifically to the craft & D.I.Y. crowd. They were a hit!
The adhesive cardstock is one of my favorite of the specialty media products to play with…and they worked perfectly to help bring my Washi Tape Christmas Tag vision to reality. I love the splashes of a-typical holiday colors involved, too.
The babies keep comin’…and I keep using my Silhouette to create custom onesies! Truly, they are some of my favorite gifts to give! I think it’s the adorable size along with the challenge to come up with something unique for each kiddo. Heat transfer vinyl makes for such a polished finished look.
Oh, and did I mention that you can swap out the Silhouette blade for sketch pens? Yepper. We use these handy-dandy place-cards nestled into some gold spray-painted plastic animal place-card holders whenever we have dinner guests. Wouldn’t they be fun around your Thanksgiving table this week?
It’s so had for me to stop at just 5, too. To see all of my Silhouette projects, visit my Project Gallery!
