I wanted to pop in here to share some big news…Nathan & I got married last month! We had a wonderful day, with just our parents, my sister and Nathan’s cousin to celebrate with us. Nathan & I exchanged our vows privately in the morning. Then in the evening, after signing our marriage license in front of our family, we enjoyed an awesome dinner at Concourse Restaurant Moderne, a new restaurant that recently opened near our house. This was exactly the simple celebration we wanted :)
I certainly didn’t mean to be gone from the blog for so long! I haven’t been doing much sewing or knitting lately, but I have been working on a cross stitch project and a lot of cards and paper crafts. I am going to try to be back soon (and more frequently) with updates and crafty stuff I’m creating.
Here are the Halloween decorations I made with my Silhouette Portrait this year:
I also tried a new technique with the “Something Wicked” phrase: print & foil! The phrase is a free Silhouette cut file and printable from Dawn Nicole Designs. I printed the file on black card stock, cut it out with my Portrait, added a couple extra spider webs, and then used silver foil to show off the words. I love how the silver foil looks on black card stock!
I don’t have the Heidi Swapp Minc. foil applicator, although I would love it if I did ;) Instead, I used a laminator to apply the foil to the printed phrase. There is a great post from Jennifer Mcguire Ink about using a laminator, and 4 other ways, to add foil to your crafting projects. Now I want to foil all the things :D
