Sign for Genevieve's Mom

Genevieve asked to make a sign for her mom.  She picked out the wording for the sign. We started with an Artist's Loft 11"x14" white canvas.  Genevieve painted the canvas Turquoise Craftsmart paint with a foam brush.   She wanted to add some bling.  We went thru my "stash" and found some bling and cute flowers that had bling in the center of the flowers.
Genevieve is holding her completed sign and anxious to give it to her mom!  Genevieve told me when she grows up she wants to be like me make crafts.  (Unlike me) she will  put them on E-bay and try to sell them! Future Entrepreneur! You go girl!
Best Mom in THE WORLD!  My MOM is SPECIAL!

Genevieve's Sign

I am watching my 9 year old Granddaughter for the weekend.  She asked me if I would make a sign for her.  She picked out the wording.  V.I.P.M. = Very Important Princess Model.  She enjoys pretending to model her bathing suit or the dress up clothes in the closet.  I saw the words "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful" in the Silhouette on-line store.  I made my own version using my free fonts.  She saw the words printed and in cursive.  Genevieve liked the "cursive" font better. 
This is Genevieve holding her sign she designed!
The Artist's Loft canvas was purchased at Michael's craft store.  The canvas is 11"x14".  The canvas originally white and was painted Ebony black  Americana acrylic paint.  Pink vinyl was cut out with the Silhouette Cameo and transferred to the dried canvas.

Wedding Tile Gift

I'm so excited to share this tile I made for my nephew's September 2013 wedding!  I made this using my Cameo Silhouette.   Alphabet #4 was purchased from My Vinyl for $4.95.   I used the Cricut black vinyl with their transfer paper. Normally I use contact paper for my transfer paper.  Let me know your thoughts!
