Happy New Year!

best year yetI’ve really appreciated the time off I’ve taken after the holiday &  have been doing lots of personal crafting after having a nice rest. This is a free printable from C.R.A.F.T. made by Vanessa at the Tried & True blog. I’ve “known” Vanessa for probably 10 years now from an online business forum (The Switchboards) and we reconnected on instagram recently.

I wanted to see if my Silhouette Cameo could mimic chalkboard art with the sketch pen feature because I have some ideas for how I want to decorate for Valentine’s, so I traced the printable with a copper metallic pen on black cardstock. I’m happy with how it turned out. I might sketch some smaller versions for my smash book(s). Marshall’s had them on sale for $5.99 yesterday (I’ve seen them for $12 at Target), so I picked up one for myself + one for my biz. I’m collecting bits of paper to put in them and might do a year in review starting from December 2013 and going backwards.

These are just some of the things I’ve been cutting out of with my machine – mostly paper and vinyl that I had on hand.

  1. Love the 3d flowers! I keep buying them from the Silhouette store but I never get around to cutting them… Maybe this year lol!

  2. I have made some more (different ones downloaded from the Silhouette store.), but after watching some youtube videos about paper flower crafting, you only need a few shapes to make all kinds of flowers! I’m thinking about taking a paper flower crafting class next week at Joann’s, too!

  3. That came out beautiful, Lisa! By the way, I wasn’t sure if you’d remember me or make the connection on IG. So glad to “see” you again!
