Sometimes a friend sends you a cross stitch pattern as a gift and then you have the brilliant idea to stitch it for them and then you forget to mail it to them for a long time. Sorry, Mer. I’ll mail this. Eventually.
My parents are AWESOME. They got this baby for me for my birthday. I am SO EXCITED about all the things I’ve done with it and the things I’ve yet to try or dream up.
For anyone who doesn’t know about the Silhouette – it’s basically a printer with a multi-directional blade instead of an ink cartridge. It cuts paper and cardstock and vinyl and even fabric (with the right attachments)!
So the first thing I did was thank them for the gift. Using… the gift.
Then I decided to get really adventurous and try some vinyl! Learn from my mistakes. DO NOT TRY THIS WITHOUT TRANSFER PAPER. This was a ridiculous mess, but I’m happy with how it ultimately turned out! A friend gave me a transfer paper tip that I’ve used since and I’ll share the next time I talk about vinyl. It will be soon, I promise!
