I hope everyone enjoyed the long three-day Labor Day weekend, I know I did. I spent my weekend with my family, birthdays, BBQ’s, movies, (fighting a horrible tooth ache) and my favorite hobby – crafting! I love everything my Silhouette Cameo can do. This past week I have been able to customize my very own Starbucks mug! I LOVE how it came out, it was such a hit I have friends and family requesting one of their very own! Wouldn’t it be wonderful to just do this for a living!? One can dream, can’t she? 🙂
Here is the mug I made…
One thing to note, I am using outdoor permanent vinyl. This is way more durable than the vinyl you can get at your local craft store. This is the same vinyl you see on cars with team logos, etc. It is for the most part permanent, the coffee mugs are hand wash only. Every dishwasher is different and in my opinion not worth the chance of the vinyl lifting, not from the water but from the heat of the drying cycle.
We celebrated my sister’s birthday this weekend too. There are so many things you can do with vinyl. One of the latest ideas I’ve seen floating around my crafty sites and blogs is monograms. I LOVE these so much I made two, one for my other sister! They are so personal and make gifts! The Silhouette Online Store is full of monograms to choose from! I got the stands at Michaels, but the tiles can easily be drilled with holes and hung up instead.
That’s all for now. Until next time, do something creative.
