My Vinyl obsession

  I found my one true love(besides the cute hubby) and its my vinyl cutter!!   My Silhouette machine and I are never far apart.   The hubby has decided that I am just a big kid, since now I use vinyl on the walls instead of stickers, hehe.    I have a few more walls and plaques that need some vinyl, but here is what I have done so far around the new house.

Recycling time

I loved that when we bought our little house, it came with all the old windows.   The previous owners had updated the windows and left a HUGE stack of the old ones down in the basement.   So, me being me, I have to redo a few for fun.   I want to make a few for Christmas gifts, but that takes time and focus, it would seem I lack the focus half of that one, lol.

More headbands!

I really think I might be a bit obsessive, since I am not selling them, just making them(all the time)

Don't skip over the important holidays!

So, I went shopping and looking for some cute Thanksgiving decorations, but do you think I could find any??   What I found was Halloween clearance(which I love) and Christmas(which I love more).  It was as though Thanksgiving no longer existed.   I hate when stores skip over important holidays!!  

I finally found on isle of decorations, but not much to choose from, so I came home and made my own.   I took one of my dishes, filled it with spanish moss, my little pumpkins from Halloween and then cut out "Give thanks".   I used SNF Miss Molly font and welded it with a leafy swirl design from Silhouette.

The latest obsession.

Jessi, my 13 yr old and I have been obsessively making flowered headbands and clips lately.  I do wish we had better options for flowers around here.   Having 3 stores to choose from, leaves us few choices.   I need to find flowers and ribbon in bulk, especially ribbon, since I found out how to curl it!   I love rhineston brads for centers, but I need to spend some time shopping online to find some new embellies.

These are a few cards I have made, I need to add some more.   I have to go through my photos and find the rest.   The last is a journal I made.

Love blocks

I had bought these blocks and held onto them for almost a year.  I finally figured out what to do with them!   I painted them black and sanded the edges, then painted the edges red.  I cut out LOVE with my vinyl cutter. Then, I used glue dots to hold the flowers onto the blocks.

Some of my favorite layouts

These have been my favorite layouts throughout the years of scrapbooking.
