Framed Ombre Butterfly Art & Silhouette Promotion

I realized something today that I think is kind of funny. I’m curious if you’re the same way. Whenever I decide on a room to focus on decorating, I come up with a million projects and ideas and cannot wait to get started. Then about two projects in, I’m already dreaming about the next space I want to re-do and get totally distracted from finishing the first room! What can I say… I’m a dreamer. 🙂

So as I’m busting out projects for my living room makeover, I’m already thinking about what’s next… I think my studio/office is due for a major overhaul! The majority of my house is designed for the boys that live here… no white walls, indestructible furniture, and definitely not a lot of glass around. So I want my studio office to be a place where I can enjoy my girly things… pink, ruffles, glam, and sparkles! Okay, there will probably be rustic wood tones and maybe even a deer head included in there too, just to balance out the estrogen-fest, but I want this space to be my little escape from boy-land! Are you as excited as I am about these plans?? Oh, wait… I’m supposed to be working on my living room. Oh, well.

With spring now here and a girly, pink office on the brain, I have a fun project to share with you today that would be perfect for spring decorating, a little girl’s room, or maybe a blogger’s girly office retreat. The choice is yours!

Silhouette Studio Designer Edition Promotion!

You all know the love I have for my Silhouette CAMEO® cutting machine, and this month I’m super excited to share another big Silhouette promotion with you! If you just recently purchased a machine or are thinking about getting one, you’ll definitely want to check this out!

Silhouette Studio Designer Edition Software Promotion

This month’s Silhouette promotion features the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software, which is a MUST-have for Silhouette users, in my opinion! When you purchase a Silhouette machine, it comes with the original free Silhouette Studio software. You set the software up on your computer, and it gives you all kinds of options for creating designs to cut with your Silhouette machine. I love this program!

But Silhouette also offers the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software, which has all kinds of really cool upgrades! It has additional knife and eraser tools, rulers, file import options, rhinestone and sketch patterns, and most importantly, you can upload YOUR OWN images! I use this feature all the time! If you invest in a Silhouette machine, I think it’s definitely worth it to upgrade to the Designer Edition software too!

From the bottom of my heart, I wish you a wonderful holiday filled with lots of family, food, love, and laughter!

Create this fun Under The Mistletoe Wall Art to spice up your holiday decor!

As much as I would love to take full credit for this idea, I have to give a shout-out to my sister, Kristi, who came up with it! We went to visit her last weekend for Thanksgiving, and she had her house all decked out with in the most beautiful Christmas decor. I immediately spotted a super cute hanging mistletoe ball when we walked in her front door and a sign above it that read, “What happens under the mistletoe, stays under the mistletoe!”  So stinkin cute! I decided I absolutely need one for my house too, so I started working on creating a DIY mistletoe ball (tutorial here!) and this “under the mistletoe” sign using Silhouette’s gold vinyl.

Create this fun Under The Mistletoe Wall Art to spice up your holiday decor!

NOT SURE WHAT A SILHOUETTE IS?

The Silhouette is an electronic cutting tool that can be used to create a wide variety of projects. Similar to a printer, the Silhouette machine plugs into your home computer using a USB cable, but instead of printing, the Silhouette uses a small blade to cut designs created in the Silhouette Studio software. The machine is able to cut through many types of materials including vinyl, paper, cardstock, chipboard, fabric, heat transfer, magnet sheets, and more!

Silhouette has two different models for different project sizes. You can read all about the Silhouette CAMEO here and about the Silhouette Portrait here!

What a week it has been! Every Monday I tell myself that I’m going to get ahead of the game and get lots accomplished. Then Friday smacks me in the face, and I wonder where my very productive week has gone! Does that happen to you too? As I start planning for October, I’m trying my best to tie up loose ends in my kitchen makeover so I can finally give you the big reveal! I have just a few odds and ends left to finish the space, and then I’ll be ready to show you everything! It’s only been a couple months now, right? 
So after tackling larger projects like furniture makeovers, roman shades, and chalkboards, it’s nice to work on the fine details that really make a space feel complete. Like this Etched Glass Oil Bottle!

I got the bottle from Wal-Mart years ago, and it’s done it’s job quite nicely. When I first started learning to cook, Rachel Ray was my idol, so I wanted to have a fun EVOO bottle like she did! It stays next to my stove so that it is close at hand while I’m cooking. I thought it would be fun to add a simple label to the bottle to dress it up a bit, and glass etching is the perfect way to do that!
I used Silhouette’s Glass Etching Starter Kit and created my design in the Silhouette Studio software. I couldn’t believe how simple the etching process was! I’ve never tried it before, so I was pleasantly surprised how gorgeous the result was in literally less than 10 minutes. Maybe even 5. I was too excited to count! I just cut the design with my Silhouette CAMEO on the stencil vinyl that comes in the kit, and transferred the stencil to my bottle, making sure to remove any air bubbles. Then I applied a nice, thick layer of the etching cream on the exposed glass with a cotton swab and let the cream set for about 1 minute. I scraped the excess cream back into the bottle, and wiped away any remaining cream on the glass with a paper towel. After giving the glass a good wash, I peeled the stencil off to reveal the gorgeous etching left behind!

The lines were perfect, the etching was even, and it took me no time at all! Everything I needed was in the kit, which is so handy! I love the subtle detail it added to my kitchen, and I cannot wait to go etch more things in my house! There may not be a glass surface left untouched!
If you already own a Silhouette cutting machine, you can purchase the Glass Etching Starter Kit at 25% off now through October 4th! OR if you still have yet to purchase a Silhouette machine, you can snag a Silhouette CAMEO or Portrait plus the Glass Etching Starter Kit at a fantastic price!
