Well now that I am finished talking about myself, let me share with you what I have up over at Amelia and Me Crafts sporting what you can do with Silhouette’s Magnetic Paper! Head OVER and check out the details of this fun game I made for some lucky kiddos!

Uh-Oh! Someone May be Two-Timing on Her Cricut!

I have a confession to make. . .  I decided to join the Silhouette Cameo party and just received mine in the mail this week. This will never take away my love for my bug, but I did feel like I was two timing a bit on it! 🙂 However, this machine is soooo cool!  I am just getting my feet wet with figuring it out and I started that with this project I made for the father of a very close friend. We were invited to his 75th  birthday party and I wanted to make something very special for him.

He has a nickname of the “Pumpkin Man” since he makes family and close friends ceramic jack-o-lanterns with their names carved in the mouth smile. They also light up and they are perfect for Halloween!  When we got married, we got a big pumpkin with our last name for a wedding present and when both of my girls were born, I got one with their names carved for a baby gift.

With all that in mind, I decided to make a sign for his front porch.  I found a 12×18 wood board at Michael’s and I painted it in two layers of brown, burnt  orange and white.  I then sanded it down to distress and weather it.

I then cut out vinyl lettering in the Times Roman font and I found a cut at the Silhouette shop of the pumpkins.  I used the cut twice, but flipping the second (which ca be done by a simple right click to find that feature).  I cut this out on a gold metallic vinyl that I got from expressionsvinyl.com.

I think this turned out really cute and it was a great first-time project!

Thanks for sharing a piece of  a tad bit of two-timing on my bug” pie with me.
