Mermaid Highchair Banner…

IMG_6621

Mermaid themed birthday’s are in right now and I finally got around to making my version of a highchair banner. I grew up on Disney films such as The Little Mermaid and I knew that I wanted my mermaid to be the one and only Ariel for this project.

I started off with the blue and gold pennants using my Cameo Silhouette 3 cutting machine. Then I added the red cardstock to make Ariel and the letters for my seashell.

Everything on this banner was layered on. You can imagine how tedious it is to glue on those thin strips of gold glitter paper to the cardstock. I’m very careful not to leave any visible glue residue, I use a scraper to remove any glue that sticks out.

I’m working on my photography skills, so I really have to practice my staging. But, I think with more practice I’ll be getting there. Pretty soon I will be able to have content just as good as the best of them hahaha. Watch out world!!

Canvas Art

Michaels had a sale on their canvas packs today and I went in on it!! 😂


So of course I put my Silhouette Cameo straight to work and started cutting some vinyl. My first piece is for a makeup room or a makeup 💄 area. I really like the lashes and lips 👄. Soo cute!

Next, was a piece I’ve been wanting to make and finally got the chance to. This “Home” piece resembles the sleeping beauty castle in Disneyland and I thought it was really cute for all the Disney freaks out there. 


As you can see this is not a large canvas, I chose the smaller size because I wanted to try this out before I created larger pieces. This is about 8’x10′, but it looks really nice combined with other photo frames the same size. 


I even added a new vinyl decal to my machine!!  Lol. It was a really fun project… check out my Etsy store (Jazelle86) to view some of my items that are for sale. 

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon. 💋

Wonder Woman Frame…

   

@Silhouette.usa created a contest and each participant was able to share a Wonder Woman project via Instagram in order to gain an extra entry.  I created a Wonder Woman frame for a coffee station/bar. 


The Silhouette Studio recently changed the whole look in the latest update. So during the first step, which is the design phase, I had to learn where everything was. I’m glad I took on this project because I got to practice with the new software display. 


Next, I had to figure out which colors I would go with. I knew that I wanted to use a pattern and it had to be yellow or gold. Luckily I had this lemon wedge pattern and it paired nicely with the darker colors.  I had an old white bordered frame that’s got some texture and imperfections so it gives the frame a grungy look. 


The finished product! (Above)


This is a cute little addition to the coffee station/bar. It fits nicely since the frame itself is small, roughly about 8’x10′ in size. Hopefully I win a little something in the contest. Wish me luck!! 😁

Thanks for stopping by!! ✌️

Heat Transfer Vinyl

I finally got around to using heat Transfer vinyl (HTV) on the onesies I had previously purchased from Hobby Lobby. I used my Cameo Silhouette 3 to cut the image out and I used my iron to transfer the material onto the fabric. 

A few tips when using the Cameo to cut your images:

1) Since your not going to use your cutting mat, make sure that you use a sheet longer than your image size so that the rollers still have something to grip to. 

2) Remember to “mirror” your image so it’s in the right direction when your ready to iron onto your fabric. 


I will say that the baby carriage image needed to be handled differently due to the small pieces that had to be removed. If you don’t have the proper tools you may want to stick to images without so much detail. Overall, this was a fairly easy project and the onesies came out really cute once finished.
