Snowflake Silhouette Window and a Promo for You!

I've you've been following me on Twitter or Facebook, you know I gathered up the courage to open my new Silhouette machine this weekend and try it out. Today, I want to share a simple diy vinyl project and a really neat Promo that Silhouette is running this week.

I purchased my own machine, but Silhouette sent me some vinyl to test out, and I thought the frosted vinyl looked just perfect for snowflakes. I decided to pair some vinyl Silhouette snowflakes with my pom pom snowflake garland on the window in our Addition.

I started with hanging the garland from last year:

I wanted something simple to dress up the bottoms of the windows where the girls sit to color, so I used my Silhouette to cut some snowflakes with the frosted premium vinyl.

Unfortunately, this window is most difficult to photograph (no matter what time of day!) because of the lighting. So you'll have to excuse the photos...I did have to take some at night and I used the dreaded flash on some of them. {gasping}

It was cute, but needed a little something else so I typed up a wintery phrase in the Silhouette software and sent it print before sticking it into a dollar tree frame with a snowflake hot glued to it.

Like I said, awful lighting. I took a few at night to give you an idea of how well they show up in person:

Once I figured out how to work some with the software, it was pretty easy to use! I am really excited about all of the neat projects I'll be able to work on with my new Silhouette. And guess what??

There are two Silhouette promos running this week, from today until Saturday, the 22nd!
