Silhouette Canvas & more

It’s that time again – Silhouette has a jam packed promotion and giveaway for you.

This time it’s with a ton of specialty items. As much as I wanted to dive right in and use up more than just the adhesive backed canvas, I only really only had a limited amount of time. I decided to keep it as simple as possible by just adding some watercolors.20131014-212518.jpg20131014-212531.jpg20131014-212642.jpgAfter realizing the sun was streaming in from the window, I decided to take my painting task outdoors. You may have seen this photo I posted yesterday on Instagram, looking up at the palm tree in the neighbor’s yard. I let it dry for a few minutes out in the sunshine.20131014-212655.jpgI went in and started working on the first scrapbook layout of Jack. The photos were printed by Persnickety Prints as 3×4’s with a matte finish.20131014-212708.jpgThis Fiskars ProCision Trimmer is my new favorite tool. And it’s available for a really good price on Amazon. The washi wheel is from All Ready Memories – link in sidebar.20131014-212722.jpgSince the speech bubbles were rounded, I decided to use the new Project Life corner rounder to match the look. I added the hand drawn hearts that I cut with my Silhouette to the page. I love that the canvas is adhesive, thus allowing for one to create their very own fabric stickers.20131014-212737.jpgHere’s the completed layout:20131014-212747.jpgLove the look of the watercolors on the canvas. 20131014-212803.jpgMost of the supplies are from my Cut & Paste collection with American Crafts, available at Two Peas in a Bucket and Simon Says Stamp. specialty-media-blogger-promoVisit Silhouette and use the promo code: TANGERINE through October 24 to get any of these:

    What’s making me smile is the excitement on my daughter’s face when she came home today to find we had been “Boo’ed” with a bucket of treats from our neighbors. She has been waiting for it to be her turn all month and was beginning to think she’d never get Boo’ed. So glad my friend called this morning to tell me to expect it today. Now she’s all anxious about leaving our basket of goodies to surprise other friends in town.

  64. Sonia says:

    Family bonding–after a recent passing in the family, it feels so good to spend time together again which is a rarity for us sadly.

    Thanks for the chance!

  69. Jenny says:

    What’s making me smile? They way my 2 year old son is ALL about imitating his big sister these days and when she puts on a tutu and ‘choreographs’ a dance he runs to grab another tutu, asks for my help to put it on and dances away. Imagine chubby little boy legs with a ruffly tutu on … It is the cutest thing and making me smile … pretty much every day.

  70. Eri says:

    A lot of things make me smile these days like when my BF looks happy to eat my food, when my shop website is coming together…..etc, but to see your lovely pictures on IG definitely one of the moments to make me smile!! :)

  71. Melonie Madison says:

    Making me smile right now- watching my Daughter (who has been 11 for all of one month) on the soccer field….not sure if it is the fact that she is settling into the sport after 3 years of playing or just a result of all of the growing and maturing she has done in recent weeks….but either way it is a beautiful season in our lives. That girl makes me so proud!

  72. Karen Schaefer says:

    Seeing 4 generations together at a family apple cider pressing party on Saturday made me smile all day long! Family, extended family, friends of family…it was a time of laughter, fun, and work as we pressed a mixed variety of apples & bottled fresh apple cider!

  73. Nat says:

    My 2, 3 & 5 year old’s excitement for decorating and shopping for all things Halloween! So fun to see how excited they are! Thanks for the giveaway! Would so love to win :)

    What makes me smile?

    The sun on my face, a falling leaf, when my granddaughter saids I love you “grandma”.
