Hunger Games Silhouette Studio File

I just finished reading The Hunger Games series and I am in LOVE! Really, they have made the cut as some of my favorite books. Now I'm counting down the days until the first movie comes out.

So to help me pass the time I created a .studio file for the Mockingjay Pin that Katness wears. I plan to put it on a shirt to wear to the opening night of the movie. Dork - youbettcha! But I can't wait! Enjoy!

Toilet Bowl Monster Silhouette Studio File

A lady on a Facebook page I'm on asked for a Toilet Bowl Monster. Of course I had to take up the challenge. So I created this file from scratch, drawing out each piece to fit the toilet in my kid's bathroom. It took a bit of work trying to get the measurements just right but after a few trial cuts it worked!

I put this on after they went to bed thinking that I would get a great freak out during the midnight pee-run. But instead my son was giddy with excitement that his toilet bowl now has a sticker on it. Oh well - hopefully you all will enjoy this as much as he did!!

New Shirts for the Kids

My kids love it when I make them stuff. From baking to cooking, crafts to knitted hats - they are always so excited when they get something made with my hands. So of course that just makes me want to make them more stuff.

My 5 year old is a HUGE Harry Potter fan. We have read books 1-3 with him, only stopping because we feel books 4 and up are too scary for his age. He hasn't seen the movies yet but he has a great imagination and likes to picture scenes from the book.

So when I found a Harry Potter design in the Silhouette online store I had to make him a shirt. The vinyl is a heat transfer flocked vinyl and it worked so nicely! My son also picked out the helicopter from the Silhouette online store too!

They were a hit the next morning and he had to wear them to school! Bonus!

Linus Silhouette Studio File

My second favorite cartoon character is Linus. And really only because, like I used to - he sucks his thumb and has a blanket. What's not to love about that? I have cut this one out and it is so cute when you cut it out of vinyl! Enjoy!

Nail stickers using the Silhouette Cameo

I got this idea from a sweet mama on a Facebook users group for the Silhouette cutting machines. I used some free vinyl that I got from a local sign shop and cut out nail stickers. The flower design can be found in the Silhouette online store. I had to cut them out SUPER tiny... almost too tiny. But it worked. I put a clear coat over the stickers and they lasted almost two days. My kids loved them and they really brightened up an already bright blue nail polish - and lets face it - they are just fun!
