Birthday Party- Day 4!

Have you been enjoying yourselves shopping and collecting all the freebies? Today we're bringing some hybrid goodness, another amazing promotion, and another contest! The winner of this contest is going to win a Silhouette CAMEO! Yes, you read right! More details after the tutorial. Try to hang in there with me. It's like a blast to the past to Hybrid Thursdays. ;)

This month's Silhouette promotion is a CAMEO bundled with the Rhinestone Starter Kit! I was excited to try using the rhinestones and knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. I knew that I'd be sharing this project during our birthday celebration, so I thought I'd make a gift for Jessica. She's put her heart, soul, sweat, tears, pretty much everything she has into this site for the last five years and she's done it all while being a mother to two sweet children and a wife to Jared, who is a rockstar in his own way and being incredibly generous through the years. So, without further ado...

Silhouette Rhinestone Promotion Project

My only purchase for this project was a 5x7 inch white canvas from my local craft store. I started with the computer part of my project by copying the background of the website, saving it to my computer, and then opening it in Photoshop. I created a clipping mask a little bigger than 5x7 as I knew that I wanted the printed edges to go over the edges of the canvas, and clipped the background images to the clipping mask.

I then printed the background onto tissue paper that I had taped onto a piece of cardstock. At first I had taped it to a regular piece of paper, but my printer just ate that right up, so I definitely recommend using cardstock.

Using my Silhouette, I cut out the number five template for rhinestones from the Silhouette store and took the template material off and affixed it to the backing board (which is included in the starter kit). I poured the rhinestones onto the template, and...wait a second. This doesn't look right. I knew I hadn't resized the template because it warned me not to or the rhinestones wouldn't fit. Off I went to the Silhouette site and low and behold there are three sizes of rhinestones and the starter kits come with the smallest 10ss size! I was wondering why the template came in three sizes. I just picked the largest one not even thinking. That's what I get for not paying attention. Ha! So, I started over and used the right size template.

Hooray! This time they fit! I used the handy brush that is included in the kit to brush the rhinestones into the holes. I recommend ordering the "Pick Me Up" tool when you order your bundle as it doesn't come in the starter kit, and it would have made my life easier if I had it!

I decided I didn't have room on my canvas for the letters, so I just stuck with the number 5. After getting the rhinestones in place, I used a piece of the transfer tape included in the kit to lift up the rhinestones and place them on my cardstock circle that I had previously cut out using my Silhouette. With my iron set on the wool setting and a light cloth placed on top of the rhinestones, I pressed the hot iron on top of them for 30-45 seconds. I turned the circle over and pressed it again as this pulls the glue from the bottom of the rhinestones further into the paper. And it worked! I was worrried that it wouldn't work on paper, but it worked beautifully!

Setting the number circle aside, I adhered the printed tissue paper onto the canvas using Sparkle Mod Podge. (If you've never used the sparkle version of Mod Podge and you like shiny, go grab some at your local craft store. You'll love it! I put a coat on the canvas itself then placed the paper over it and smoothed it on, followed by glueing the sides down. Then I went back and put a coat over the top of the tissue paper. It was wrinkly at first, but after drying for a few hours, it smoothed out. This photo was taken right after adhering the tissue paper to the canvas but before adding the top coat.

I used a few of the left over pieces of the tissue paper and created a ruffle around the number circle. I also put a coat of the Sparkle Mod Podge on the ruffle.

I just wasn't feeling it, so I put it aside for a few hours. I sent a few of the photos to my fellow admin team members to get their opinions on what was missing. That's the best thing to do if you're just not feeling a project. Put it aside, then ask your close friends. They'll tell it to you straight, and my girls helped me out like I knew they would!

I tore off the white tissue paper ruffle as it just wasn't giving it the "pop" it needed. I remembered I had an old book that had green edges, so I tore out some of the pages and made a ruffle using them. Adding a coat of the mod podge to the ruffles and the number circle gave it the pop it needed. It certainly is shiny, and our girl Jessica loves shiny!

So, here's the end result. A custom 5x7 canvas with a little bling and a lot of shiny in honor of five amazing years of! It's going in a box and heading to North Carolina tomorrow and will hopefully find a spot in Jessica's office. ;)

The rhinestones look so very pretty. I just signed up to receive E-mail updates from the Silhouette blog. Thanks for the chance to win a Cameo. The first thing I would make with it would be the pretty lanterns I have been seeing a lot of people post recently.

Oh my! What a prize. I already follow the Silhouette blog and just made a suggestion for a tut. I think I would like to make what my tut suggestion was for: a tabbed word book that spells LOVE. I have always loved those books and would love to learn how to make one myself!

That card is beautiful! I love the rhinestones! So neat and perfect! I need to spend more time to learn to use my computer more in my scrapbooking - I want to make my own papers instead of spending so much money at the scrapbook stores! I need to make stencils for a project for my daughter - so I would use the Silhouette for that. I am now following the Silhouette blog.

Would love to win the new Silhouette Cameo! I have had the original Silhouette for several years (before the SD) and thoroughly enjoy using it. However, with the new ability to utilize 12x12 paper and to cut custom scrapbook pages, I feel a "need" for the Cameo! The first design(s) I would cut would have to be the new 12x12 designs. I am also excited to find your website and have added it to my Favorites...

I signed up on the Silhouette blog. I have never had a personal die cutting machine and have been looking at the Silhouette for a long time - mostly because they work with a Mac. I would probably start out with titles and flourishes and then try to design some of my own "stuff" and probably take the Silhouette classes. Thanks for a great opportunity to win this machine . . . and Happy 5th Birthday!

Just signed up at the Silhouette blog. I would love to have a Silhouette and the first thing I would do is to sign up for the Silhouette classes on Jessica After that I would love to make some 3D projects. Thanks for the chance to win and "HAPPY 5th BIRTHDAY"!

June 21, 2012
That's so cool how you used rhinestones. I've seen the rhinestone kit, but I haven't really seen how it's used. I really like how you switched the white to the book's good to get crafty friends' advice! Let's see, if I won the Cameo, besides freaking out and doing a happy dance, I would probably first use it to cut some 3D items (boxes, gift bags, maybe pieces to make a mobile). Thanks for the chance to win!smilies/smiley.gif

OK, I don't know for sure what the first thing made with this Silhouette would be if I won it, because Silhouette won't ship it to me here in Canada. That's OK though, 'cause when I win it smilies/wink.gif I'll have it shipped to my buddy Carly, in Atlanta. She's hankerin' for a Cameo to put in her brand new scrap room and I'd be thrilled to be able to send one to her. She'd probably make a fancy-schmancy die-cut background for one of her awesome layouts about her cute little boy, but that's just a guess.

There are so many things I want to make with a cameo I wouldn't even begin to know where to start. There is a little side table that I have been wanting to re-do, but I want a cameo so I can add a graphic to the table so I haven't started that project yet, so that might be what I would use it for first.

Awesome Awesome Awesome! I just followed the Silhouette blog. If I won, the first thing I would do is use the Rhinestone Starter Kit to make something for my aunt who has helped nourish my creative side with scrapbooking and cardmaking. She totally rocks and so does Silhouette! :-)

I know follow the Silhouette Blog! I have really been wanting to try letter silouettes like Wilna Furstenburg has been doing - her stuff has been so inspiring. Then I would cut word bubbles and other fun shapes. And I'll have to try the father's day craft they had on the blog, and, and, and.....

Because I was already following the Silhoutte's blog, so I sent an email.
Now, what would be the first thing to do if I won... oh I know, 2 vinyl sayings for my house. "Return with honor" to put it above or on the front door; ans "Eat" for my kitchen.

WOW! The first think I would make is way too many hybrid scrapbook pages from my daughter's senior prom! I definitely added Silhouette's blog to my reader and look forward to lots of inspirational projects. With two teenage girls who can't get enough glitz and glamour these days this product is perfect! Good luck everybody!!!

June 22, 2012
I would cut intricate designs for cards.

June 22, 2012
I don't know where I would start. There are so many cool projects that I'd love to be able to do with, especially, rhinestones! I've become obsessed with them lately! I think the first project I would do, would be to make some uber cool shirts for my son (no rhinestones included! LOL) It's so hard to find shirts for a 5 year old that aren't either too babyish or too grown up. And I'd love to make a messanger bag for myself (rhinestones included) and I'm in dire need of home decor. We've lived here a year and I don't have a lot up on the walls yet. Oh the things I could do! And I'm in love with the Silhouette store! Being able to buy one image at a time or even make my own svgs makes me very happy! (I can only dream though, unless I win one!)

June 22, 2012
I have the original Sihouette. It's a workhorse and I love it, but I've been really wanting the bigger Cameo. I would make 12x12 decoratively edged paper for my scrapbook pages first. Then, I would make a 12x12 stencil for a canvas. Then, I would make a bunch of giant paper flowers. Then I would make a really big paper box. The list goes on and on. Hope I win! I'm anxious to get started smilies/smiley.gif

June 22, 2012
What a great gift for Jessica, she will love it! I do!! Thanks of the wonderful giveaway, if I won the Cameo the first thing I would make would be a Thank You Card for Jessica and her team for such a great giveaway and wonderful celebration. smilies/wink.gif

Holy smoley! What wouldn't I use the Cameo on. That is awesome. I think the first thing I would do is create the cover for my Godparents 60th anniversary book. It's needing a little help and this would be perfect. Plus, tshirts, and oh my! The ideas are swimming in my head. Congrats on 5 years and many more to come.

P.S. I am a follower of the Silhouette Blog.

Lovely projects! The more I see things made with Silhouette, the more I want to try it! If I won, and do hope so, my first project would be cutting fabric. I'm very impressed how easy it is with this machine.

Happy 5th Birthday! The first thing I think I would do if I won the Cameo, is tons of decorative pillows and accents to spruce up my outside screen porch. I love the idea of weathered nautical decor with a hint of greenery accents! I think I would start with decorating some pillows and making some handmade vases and flower pots. I definitely would enjoy using it for so much more than that as well. Thanks for such a fun celebration and for all the tips you have shared. Also, thanks for such a fun contest!
