Watercolor Thank You Tags

Has anyone noticed the recent trend with all things watercolor?  From watercolor pillows and shirts, to tattoos and art work- watercolor seems to be popping up everywhere!  I am in love with this trend!  There is something about the soft, fluid texture of watercolor that I can't get enough of.  

Did you know that you can achieve watercolor with special colored pencils and markers?  Gone are the days of the messy watercolor palette that you used as a kid!  Water color markers and pencils are the easy way to get the watercolor effect without the mess!  Check out this beautiful thank you tag I made this weekend:

Let me show you how easily it is to use watercolor pencils

How to Cut FELT With a Silhouette Cameo

Today is Girl Scout Day!  In 1912, Juliet Gordon Low started the first Girl Scout troop.  Today, Girl Scouts has become a nationally recognized organization and millions of girls are involved!  I have a Daisy Scout and our troop has our first cookie booth this weekend!  I decided to make cute cookie costumes to draw more attention to our booth and used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the felt.  I learned a few tricks along the way and found TWO ways to use my Cameo with felt. Let me share some know how with you!

DIY Personalized Lunch Bags With the Silhouette Cameo & Sketch Pens

My daughter Natalie started Kindergarten this year and has been in school for about a month. One thing I always strive to do for her is to keep lunch interesting!  I know how boring a cold lunch from home can be, so I try to keep it fun.  I recently had an "ah ha!" moment and with a normal brown lunch bag, some Silhouette Sketch Pens, crayons and my Silhouette Cameo, I found a way to personalize her lunch bags and keep her excited for a home packed lunch each day. 

You won't believe how easy these lunch bags were to make!  Let me show you how!
