While You're Waiting

How is the Roman Blind project going???

Well, for the most part pretty good. I'll post the whole project and lessons learned once it's all done. 
FOREWARNING: It's gonna have a lot of pics! I have learned quite a bit on this project. If it hangs nicely and turns out...I have many other windows that need a little dressing up!

In the meantime,
here is a quick project turned birthday gift!

Remember my Chevron tRe Plate post 

Well my friend Ashley is super FAB and has a fun modern home. Her birthday is July 2 and her wedding anniversary is Memorial Day weekend so I thought I would make her a monogram plate.

I used my Silhouette SD (which is being discontinued because of a new model, BUT is on clearance NOW!!!)

Anyway, used my vinyl cutter with the graphic above. I originally used the actual graphic but it didn't pop on the white plate. Instead, I used the negative space vinyl for the plate graphic. I LOVE how it turned out! Using the negative space pieces was harder because I had to place them free hand. Though not perfect, it worked.

I decided to make the monogram letters bigger this time because I felt like mine were a little too small. I like the larger letters MUCH better!

I hope she likes it! It's kind of a funky addition to a room, but makes a nice unexpected accent.

xoxo Ash!

Stay tuned for the Roman Blind final! Lots of tips coming...of course, ONLY if this isn't a disaster like when I tried to make PJ's:

  1. I'm a little confused. Is this painted on or is it vinyl stick on?
