Silhouette Vinyl Promo | Giveaway & STUDIO File Freebie

I’ve got a couple fun things for you today including a Silhouette Cameo giveaway, special pricing on a Silhouette + vinyl package, and a freebie .STUDIO file.

Most of you know I’ve been enjoying working with the Silhouette. I’ve used it a bunch in Project Life.

This was my first time working with premium vinyl on my Cameo. Super easy and totally got my mind going on all kinds of other things I could do with this stuff.

I basically used this tutorial to walk through the steps of learning how to use the vinyl.

I started with a big phrase and then decided to go small.

Here’s the big one:

Nothing wrong with this at all except it just felt too big.

Here’s my (much) smaller second version (Font is Bebas Neue):

I put it right above the bottom of the mirror in my kid’s bathroom.

I love that it’s a simple little reminder (and reminds me of the great photobooth at The Ace Hotel in Portland) that the kid’s will see when brushing their teeth, washing the hands or face, etc. We all need little reminders like that.

I saved the file for you in case you want to add a little message for someone in your life. Enjoy.

    This is a fantastic idea! I love the message. I recently did a variation of this on the bottom of the toilet seat in the master bathroom that says “Lower the seat” LOL, I’m trying to get that message across too!

    Rebecca said…

    Oh, I know you will get a lot of comments on this post! ;)

    I truly love that idea of putting the “You are loved” phrase on your kids’ mirror. I have a friend with a Cameo…I may have to ask if I can borrow hers to do that. What a great, affirming way of training that little voice we all have in our heads. That way, it says something that helps, rather than something that hurts. :)

    This is the most touching craft idea, I have seen in a long time. Not only is it perfect for regular everyday…but will have an even stronger, positive impact on our kids when their soldier Dad deploys, we move to a new assignment, go through other life changing events! I’ve been wanting a cameo for a long time … now with this idea, I want it even more! Thanks for the awesome idea, giveaway, and chance to win! Blessings to you and yours!
